kuphish (381) - Fort Lauderdale, Florida, USA - NOV 24, 2011
Bottle from Rewe. Straw yellow body barely avoids being too pale. Rocky, diminishing white head with little lacing. Grassy and floral noble hops dominate the nose. Light malty sweetness underneath. Grainy, cheerio-s like malt flavor is almost a little too much. Light fruity esters (pear) and low-level hop flavors matching the aroma. Mouthfeel is pretty balanced with regard to BU:GU. Slightly minerally finish. Moderate carbonation. Decent but not great Kölsch.

Nightfall (1306) - Hamburg, GERMANY - NOV 5, 2011
Clear yellow color. Tiny head tha disappears. Sweet malty, earthy, a slight touch of bitterness in the finish. Rather thin and watery. Refreshing and good for food but nothing special.

Kolsch is just not my thing, Whilst this beer was fresh it had little by way of real flavour besides a dry bitterness...

JanLaursen (3227) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - OCT 20, 2011
Bottle, 50 cl: Clear pale beer with a white foamy head. Light malt sweetness in the nose with notes of hay, grass and green fruits. Fairly dry with a rather long bitter finish and a slim body. Crisp carbonation. Mouth cleaning and fresh thirst quencher albeit a rather simple palate.

Hugi (475) - Waldkirch, GERMANY - OCT 8, 2011
From a 330 ml bottle. Pale-golden with a medium rather unstable head. smells really malty and sweet. tastes evewn more sweet and malty. reminded me on a alcohol-free beer. almost no bitterness with perfume-like hops. sticky and average carbonization.

ogreface (1390) - Budapest, HUNGARY - SEP 30, 2011
Világos szalmasárga színe van, ami tükrösen tiszta és átlátszó. Habja kis méretű, krémes és elég kitartó. Illata édeskés, malátás és enyhén vizes szalmás. Íze is egy hatalmas adag malátával kezdődik, ami kissé édeskés és csipetnyit élesztős, aztán csatlakozik a komló is, ami szépen kiegyensúlyozza a maga kesernyésségével és egy kis gyümölcsösséggel. Vékony teste van és nem túl szénsavas. Utóíze keserédes, és a legvége kiszárítja a szánkat. Könnyen csúszó sör, amit pillanatok alatt ellehet pusztítani és igen frissítő.

DuffMan (8940) - the land of bitumen, beef & beer, Alberta, CANADA - SEP 29, 2011
Pale clear gold, medium white head that laces the top third of the thin kolsch glass. Pleasantly fruity, nice cereal malt structure, light bitterness, dry finish.

jolo (1003) - Uppsala, Sweden, SOUTH AFRICA - SEP 25, 2011
Bottle 50cl (Systembolaget). A light golden colour with a white head. An aroma of malt and hops. The taste is light seet and light sour. A thin body, oily to watery texture, soft carbonation and a dry light bitter finish.

Tap at some sort of tied house, pours a bright yellow, a bit weak, not too much life to this one, overall it wasnt bad but it was a weak, very smooth
