omhper (19953) - Tyresö, SWEDEN - AUG 3, 2009
Draught at the brewpub. Clear pale golden, small head. salty and fruity with some grassy hops. Soft and fairly light bodied. Mild and quaffable, but lacks the depth of the best kölsches.

Beershine (5218) - The Sunshine State, Florida, USA - JUL 20, 2009
flip-top bottle. Clear glassy gold with exactly one stream of rising bubbles. Aroma is very sweet. Yields a lot, though, and has a nice biscuit character. Soft carbonation is nice. Flavors are nice too with simple sweet cereal grains, and good juicy apple flavors.

roebuck (45) - Milwaukee, Wisconsin, USA - MAY 25, 2009
This Kolsch seems to have had a bit more flavor than other I’ve tried. Almost a bit of yeast??? Something sneaking in the back of my mouth was a bit sweet. Of the few Kolsch I’ve tried I liked this one the best.

<b>Draught @ Hellers Brauhaus, Roonstrasse 33, Köln, Nordrhein-Westfalen, Germany.</b>
Clear medium yellow color with a average, frothy, good lacing, mostly lasting, white to off-white head. Aroma is moderate malty, toasted, hay, fruity, light to moderate hoppy. Flavor is moderate sweet to light light heavy and bitter with a average to long duration. Body is medium, texture is watery to oily, carbonation is soft.

MiP (13798) - Sønderborg, DENMARK - JAN 5, 2009
Draught, 4.5% at the brewpub. Clear yellow colour. Good stable white head. The flavour starts off with a nice maltiness. The finish is slightly chalky, but quite subtle. Low bitterness, nice and clean.

asheft (2550) - Ottawa, Ontario, CANADA - MAY 31, 2008
[bottle] Plenty of crisp 2-row in the nose, with a touch of noble hops and citrus and pine notes. Bright, dark straw colour with lasting white flanel blanket cover. Sweetish and grainy malt flavour with some notes of citrus that seem to come from hops. Appropriate bitterness works well with the medium carbonation level. Light to medium body and almost clean finish.
