imdownthepub (9954) - Banbury, Oxfordshire, ENGLAND - NOV 2, 2005
Bottled at La Strada, Cologne, 500ml, Filtered. Pale gold beer with lasting head. Particularly low flavoured malty kolsch, though this may be because this was a bottled version. Harsh sharp malt a little too cerealy for me.

YogiBeera (2435) - Hamburg, GERMANY - OCT 24, 2005
Medium frothy head, long lasting. Fizzy carbonation. Golden color. Graind and hops nose and taste. Weak - well plain - well like a Kölsch ;-)

JonMoore (1840) - Loughborough, Leicestershire, ENGLAND - OCT 12, 2005
Bottle. Dark golden colour with a loose, slim white head. Sweet malty and hoppy aroma. Quite a nice sweet and malty taste initially, followed by a light hoppy bitter finish. Medium bodied. A reasonable Kölsch.

MoritzF (8389) - Bochum, GERMANY - SEP 26, 2005
(bottle) Clear and pale golden colour with a small bubbling white head, quickly diminishing. Slightly sweet malty nose with a hoppy background. Sharp carbonated, sweetmalty taste with grapefruits, dry and light hoppy finish. A rather malts accentuated Kölsch.

shrubber85 (7288) - Greenville, Indiana, USA - JUN 5, 2005
Bottle. Sweet light apple aroma. Bright yellow with disappating head. Initially sweet malt flavor that fades fast - moderate carbonation and high acidity for the style. Not unpleasant but rather bland.

ChristianSA (368) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - APR 7, 2005
On tap. Smooth with little carbonation and small head. The fruitiness comes through. Lightly bitter finish. One of the best Kölsch’es.

jokazi (8) - Sarasota, Florida, USA - MAR 17, 2005 does not count
True Kölsch in deed ! Lightly Hopy, no bitterness , balanced, refreshing, ligth, tasty. Very good original Kölsch from Cologne. One of the best.

dortmunder (961) - Herdecke, GERMANY - DEC 23, 2004
Bottled. Golden colour. Lacey, frothy head. Hoppy aroma. Very refreshing beer, with a nice underlying hopbitterness, a good moutfeel and a slightly creamy texture.

maeib (8574) - Wootton, Northampton, Northamptonshire, ENGLAND - DEC 18, 2004
Bottled. A greeny-gold coloured beer with a slightly creamy, fruity aroma. The taste is thick and full with lovely malty bready notes and again a touch of cream (maybe vanilla ice cream?). A really nice Kolsch, and I feel I could get into this style

JorisPPattyn (7771) - Antwerpen, BELGIUM - DEC 14, 2004
draught Slim white head, clear greenish gold. Malty, velvet, holly leaves nose. Sweet, cornflour taste - mixed malt? First taste is abysmally sweet, but it clears out a bit. But this corn taste - DMS? Light to medium bodied, slickness. So far the worst Kölsch. Why can’t they not do as good as, zum Beispiel Päffgen, in fact? Is it necessary, being a larger brewer?
