awaisanen (1304) - Fond du Lac, Wisconsin, USA - JAN 19, 2006
Purchased a bottle while away on business in Germany. Light yellow color with a healthy, foamy head. Nothing impressive; the hops have a surprisingly fresh aroma, but the flavor is of old straw and the finish is excessively grainy.

MrRomero (1976) - Nolanville, USA - JAN 2, 2006
500ml bottle: poured clear light yellow with a medium white head. Full aroma of fruti and hops. Grape and apple. Flavor is quite nice: fruity and full flavored. Mild bitter finish. A good example of the style.

yngwie (14762) - Kristiansand, NORWAY - DEC 18, 2005
Bottled. Pale golden with white head and nice lacings. Aroma of malt and straw. Flavor the same, with some citrus fruitiness. Crisp finish. A pleasant beer, better than the regular lager it might be mistaken for at first glance/sip. (051209)

EithCubes (5186) - New Jersey, USA - DEC 11, 2005
UPDATED: JAN 29, 2006 Bottled. Generally unimpressive, yet very drinkable. Atmosphere (in Köln) might have something to do with me liking this (2.8).

Update / re-rate: Two Stangen on tap in Leipzig, at Johann S by the Thomaskirche. Golden pour with evident lacing. Crisp without any evidence of carbonation, I am attracted to the mouthfeel. Dry, plain, mildly bitter. A well-made beer.

Bottle. I may be being harsh to this beer. I think I’m really getting over all forms of lager. In any case, it’s refreshing and has a bit of a fruity hop coming through, but over all too fizzy and too bland for me.

imdownthepub (11122) - Banbury, Oxfordshire, ENGLAND - OCT 31, 2005
Daught at Fruh am Dom, Cologne, 200 ml, Filtered. Pale gold with huge head. The most bitter of the Kolsch’ tried during the weekend. My friends favourite, but I found it just a little underflavoured. The sharp bitterness goes right to the finish which keeps the palate fresh. Not bad.
