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.

Svesse (6885) - Hässelby, SWEDEN - AUG 28, 2006
(Bottle) Colour is yellow with frothy white head. Nose is modestly malty with fruity notes of pinepple and mango, slightly spicey. Taste is malty and fresh with slight notes of tropical fruit lingering in the background. Subtle notes of spicey, grassy hops in the dry, clean and fresh finish. Smooth body. Subtle, very drinkable and refreshing.

kseecs16 (1213) - Naperville, Illinois, USA - AUG 24, 2006
Bottle. Poured a pristinely clear golden with a white lacing head. A subtle malted barley aroma. A touch of hops upfront that balances well with a smooth malt body that finishes clean and crisp. A nice quaffer.

YK23 (465) - Haifa, ISRAEL - AUG 18, 2006
UPDATED: APR 5, 2007 Cask at GBBF 06’: very light, a little sweetish, a little fruity, a little yeasty, a little earthy in the aroma, soft bitterness and mouthfill, not very different then an ordinary lager, an ok beer to accompany meat, too mild for my taste.

3fourths (8549) - Boulder, Colorado, USA - JUN 14, 2006
UPDATED: AUG 6, 2007 Draught at the brewery in Koln. Has a large bubble-less white fluffy head. Nice fruity and yeast nose. Light and crisp flavor, thinner than it should be. Flavor is mostly yeasty, and mild, with some fruity lemongrass flavors. Good light, crisp bite.

kook (2033) - Perth, Western Australia, AUSTRALIA - JUN 11, 2006
Bottle (Utobeer): Light golden colour with a small white lasting head. Mild lemon aroma, with some faint grassy hops. Refreshing light lager like flavour, but with simple grainy flavour and a hint of citrus. Actually not too bad!

asheft (2700) - Ottawa, Ontario, CANADA - APR 24, 2006
[bottle at Barfuß in Marburg] Clear straw color with fuzzy white top. Gentle aroma of German hops and crisp malt and maybe just dectable fruit. A bit weak in the flavour, but probably exactly what a Kolsch should be. Light body and medium carbonation. Quaffable.

Thanks to James for bringing this bottle back from Germany. Pours with a big white head. Crystal clear and brillant. Nose of malt, and hallertau hops, metallic, slight oxadaion. Flavor is slightly fruity and dry w/ noble hop flavor i.e. grassy and herbal. Water seemed very menerial driven. Finished dry, disaperaing from the palate quickly. Went well with my brats and mash potatoes.
