COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
The laws protecting the brewing of kolsch are as strict as the German Purity Law of 1516. Kolsch beer can only be brewed within the city of Cologne. As the best-known kolsch brewery, Gaffel’s flavor is derived from an ale yeast that is "lagered" (or aged) in cold cellars. Gaffel is pale, faintly fruity with a crisp, hop finish. Enjoy as an aperitif or digestif.

330ml bottle. Clear golden body with a low fluffy white head. Hay, light bread, some acidic notes and a slight touch of honey just before the grassy bitterness finishes off.

Mycket skum. Luktar inte mycket. Ganska trevlig, balanserad. Men väl tam, saknar lite karaktär.

Espuma de média formação e curta duração. Reduz-se a uma leve nata que persiste o copo todo. Dourado vivo é extremamente límpida. Baixa carbonatação, corpo leve, refrescante com notas chatas de malte, Herbal e amargor persistente no final. Sutis traços ácidos e metálicos. Aromas herbais e frutados. Alta drinkability, simples e honesta. Garrafa de 500ml, Köln - Alemanha (25/3/2016) ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Finally the LCBO carries this beer. Thank you! Smells very faintly of a german lager. Pours a golden colour. Head that lasts a bit. Taste is similar to Warsteiner, only a little heavier, and fuller flavour. Lots of carbonation. Perfect amount. Overall I was not disappointed with this beer. I look forward to drinking this one in the future. MB The Beer Bearon
