dpetersr (4) - New Orleans, Louisiana, USA - OCT 21, 2006 does not count
Gilden, while one of the oldest Kolsch’s, does not have the fresh crisp taste that it should.

fonefan (37673) - VestJylland, DENMARK - OCT 19, 2006
Bottle. Golden colour and a decent head. Hop, toast and flowery in aroma. Has a bitter heavily hopped flavour. Very dry and cardboard like. Not the best Kolsch I have tasted.

Pours light golden with a fully receding white head. Aroma is very light maltiness. Taste is crisp and crackery, with nice maltiness. Mouthfeel is thin to medium bodied with lively carbonation.

UPDATED: AUG 22, 2006 Malty flavour, nice bitterness; somehow the taste wasn’t much significant. Nice one though.

eaglefan538 (2920) - Wilmington, Delaware, USA - JUL 30, 2006
Poured the usual pale golden color (some of these alts are just the same old same old in terms of appearance) with a fluffy white and somewhat foamy head, good lacing. The aroma was a bit on the fruity side of things, but the flavor was a little disappointing: a bit watery. Mouthfeel was also a little too light to be a very good example of the style. Nevertheless, this (as are most kolsch beers) was quite refreshing on a sunny summer day in Cologne.

3fourths (8480) - Boulder, Colorado, USA - JUN 14, 2006
Draught at some bar in Koln. Strong bitter bite of saaz-like hops, crisp and biting, more like a good pils than a Kolsch. Crisp potato chip and cracker flavors, with sweet grains, and a striking lack of sourness, no sour bready flavors, which is good, because I find this a common problem in most Kolsch.

Straw in color with a large white head. Hoppy aroma. Minimal sweetness,hoppy, mild bitterness with a dry finish.
