EithCubes (5156) - New Jersey, USA - MAR 30, 2012
Swing-top by 07/12. Sweet and dusty light malt nose, slight grass. Rich golden body with medium carb and a soapy white head. Sweet floral character is dominant, with slightly metallic continuation, very sharp. Light but not watery body. Miniscule bitterness and there’s nice bread tone here, but the sweet/oily malt is a bit much to handle.

Big disappointment for my 2nd Kolsch after trying Thornbridge Tzara. Bit pissy.

bierkoning (10800) - La Tropica, NETHERLANDS - FEB 17, 2012
Swing top bottle from Kölschtrinker. Pale golden color. Soft grassy chloride aroma and flavor. A moderate but persistant hopbitterness. Maybe a bit thin.

Grima (2154) - Saarburg, Rhineland-Palatinate, GERMANY - FEB 4, 2012
Sorry for the german rating, but this is a lousy rating from my "newbie" time (2007-2009), and it’s not worth of being translated. I just added it for the statistics, and to complete my backlog!
Kommt mir etwas dunkel vor für ein Kölsch. Die Blume ist mittelporig und zerfällt recht schnell. Der Antrunk is recht angenehm. Hoher CO2 Gehalt. Eine leichte Herbe dominiert... Nach ner Zeit bildet sich ein eigenartiger Nachgeschmack, der aber zum Mittelteil nachlässt...

Koelschtrinker (11753) - Köln (Cologne), GERMANY - JUL 31, 2011
Wenig wässriger Antrunk mit malzigen Beinoten, etwas seifig. Dabei aber süffig, kaum herb, trockener Abgang. Hier weniger intensiv, wenig Getreide, semig. In Ordnung. /9/10/8/9/9

Kristall-König (2372) - Oldenburg, GERMANY - JUL 7, 2011
Flasche zwei Monate über dem MHD. Geruch etwas fruchtig-hopfig. Der Antrunk steuert zunächst in herbe Richtung, um dann im Mittelteil malziger zu werden. Zum Abgang steigert sich nochmal die Malzigkeit, unterlegt mit einer kräftigen Herbe. Nicht schlecht, für ein Kölsch ist es mir aber zu schwer geraten. Test vom 31.3.2008, Gebinde: Glasflasche

Hermod (3767) - Vantaa, FINLAND - JUL 7, 2011
50cl bottle from Bierzwerg. BBE 12/2011. Poured golden color with a white head. Hay and malty aroma. Flavor is malty, slightly fruity with a grainy finish.

kjc51478 (439) - Valparaiso, Indiana, USA - JUL 7, 2011
500ml Bottle. Appearance is straw yellow with light, fizzy head. Aroma is metallic and cardboard with some hints of fruit and wheat. Taste is very bright and acidic with general fruit and wheat flavors. Very hard water seems to be a major component to this brew giving it a slightly metallic flavor. Because of this the mouthfeel is also very heavy even though the beer is light-bodied. Acidic and fizzy carbonation also give the palate an unpleasant feel. Combined with a relatively dry finish, the beer has some distracting characteristics and doesn’t really fit the bill of a quality Kölsch.

Draught at the brauhaus
Blond color, just a shade darker. It’s a mild beer, with no noticeable characteristics; the very light fruity sweetness is maybe the only sign of the top fermentation; ordinary bitterness. Easy, but not totally bad.
