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.

Lättsam sommaröl. Jag har svĺrt att sätta fingret pĺ vad som gör kölsch speciell i förhĺllande till andra tyska ljusa lageröl.

Fules (664) - Gyöngyös, HUNGARY - APR 10, 2016
Kicsi, gyorsan eltűnő hab, tiszta, átlátszó borostyán szín. Illata malátás, némi citrusos beütéssel. Malátás alap, gyümölcsös aromával, enyhe keserűvel, erős, de nem zavaró szénsavassággal. Végig érezni a lágerelés hatását. Utóíze enyhén keserű, kissé lágeres, némi gyümölcsösséggel. Testes, jól iható.

Tap at my hotel, Hotel Lowenbrau, Cologne. Pours pale gold with a small white head. Aroma of maize, grass, light soap. Medium sweetness, no bitterness. Light body, sticky texture, quite high carbonation.
