SpringsLicker (3254) - Tennessee, USA - NOV 15, 2006
Pours very clear yellow with a firm white head. Dry aroma, no hops or malt really. Light on the palate, with a flavor that is a subtle balance of light malt and hop bitterness.

TBone (14272) - Pori, FINLAND - NOV 1, 2006
Bottled (BB 01/2007). Pale yellow color, small white head. Malty, slightly fruity and corn-like aroma. Malty, crisp carbonation, lightly citric finish. Aftertaste has some lemony hops. Solid beer but the most of Kölschs are not very interesting, this included.

AlexZCologne (9) - GERMANY - NOV 1, 2006 does not count
Good beer. Probably the best among "Kölsch"- beers. A little too thin, nice white head. Tastes best from "Kölsch-Stangen" which are the traditional beer-glasses in cologne sometimes called "test-tubes" because they’re rather slim and tall.

DruncanVeasey (7712) - NUNEATON, TOP, Warwickshire, ENGLAND - OCT 29, 2006
Clear as water. V.pale gold with fluffy white head. Metallic vinous woody dryness in the nose. Lovely, rounded after-the-swallow malty afternose. A dash of booze and bitterness. Very finely carbonated. Opens sweetly and watery, develops some alcohol and bready metal. Really confused. A teasing Pilsener? Cheap GK lager out of a tin? World classic? Wish I had a crate so I could make my mind up.

Rune (9405) - Tromsø, NORWAY - OCT 17, 2006
500ml bottle at The St Albans Beer Festival. Pale yellow with some white foam. Sweet malty aroma. The flavour is dominated by light hoppy sweetness all the way through. Thin mouthfeel (27.09.2006)

fonefan (39393) - VestJylland, DENMARK - OCT 15, 2006
Cask @ Früh am Dom, Köln 06. Clean golden color, very light, a little sweetish, a little yeasty, a little earthy in the aroma, much like an ordinary lager, ok beer to accompany meat, very mild.

TheBeerOrg (2145) - Louisville, Kentucky, USA - AUG 30, 2006
Pours light yellow with an effervescent body and a foamy white, mostly receding head. Aroma is lightly toasted, with bready malt, and mild graininess. Taste is lightly bready and malty, with very light fruity, herbal elements. Mouthfeel is thin bodied and crisp with lively carbonation. Simple and refreshing.
