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.

buzzoven (376) - JAPAN - AUG 22, 2008
On draught @ The Raleigh Times. Not my favorite style but I wanted something on tap and the only other thing they had at the time was witbier or PBR. Clear golden yellow in the glass. Muted nose. Flavour was grassy, watery and finished with a pleasant dry crispness. Like I said, not my favorite style, but hit the spot, nonetheless.

Jukkabro (3484) - Tampere, FINLAND - AUG 17, 2008
Light yellow colored with little white head. Bitingly hopped aroma with thin flowers, good one. Medium bodied. Flavor starts with biting hops, lemon also here. Aftertaste is rather dry and biting. Not too balanced for my taste, good aroma.

faroeviking (10284) - FAROE ISLANDS - AUG 14, 2008
Botella. Clear golden with a big nice creamy pure white well lasting head leaving a good lacing. Aroma of corn with bitter tones. Good mouthfeel. The flavour has a pleasant maltiness with corn and a tickeling bitterness. Dry malty mildly bitter finish.

[Bottle from Alexander.] Ok Kölsch, not too sweet and you can enjoy it in the heat not getting bored of it.

Clear yellow beer with a medium head. Grainy aroma,mildly bitter. The flavour is surprisingly clean, malty and biscuity but quite bland.

dm9831 (1512) - Monee, Illinois, USA - JUL 27, 2008
gold-tinged yellow, slight white head. nose of corny air. flavor is grain, corn, better than i expected, at fgirst, but once the beer starts to warm, a corn-syrup sweetness seems to emerge. light-bodied, dry finish. kind of refreshing.

From a bottle poured a clear golden color with a fair amount of head. Nice refreshing flavor with a quick finish.
