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.

Leighton (18221) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - AUG 9, 2010
Bottle. Pours a clear, light yellow with a fizzy white head. Light malt aroma with some fruity notes and faint hops. Flavor is sweet with more fruit notes. Not very bitter. Light to medium in body with average carbonation. Finishes with sugary sweetness. Not crisp enough for me and too sweet, but I’d say still decent.
