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.

Bleh. Kinda bready, but kinda metallic too. Not digging the metal-y wang at the end. Won't get again. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

decaturstevo (5015) - decatur, Tennessee, USA - MAY 30, 2014
Pale yellow pour with water white head. Aroma is light sweet corn, pilsner malt and a light papery aroma. Flavor is corn, a bit of harsh gasoline flavor. Sweetness at teh start fades to .a rather harsh bitter finish. A touch thin and watery, medium high carbonation. A bit of harshness prevails over the sweet start. Light bodied with a bitter that doesn’t seem to come from hops. not so much

Pours a lively carbs gold with a quick residing white head. Some lace. Aroma is light malt, wheat, hay and grass. Taste is malty light and refreshing. Enjoyable change of pace, I think this would be enjoyed by non craft beer fans at a BBQ.
