BlackHaddock (5756) - Shropshire, - NOV 16, 2012
Half-litre flip-top: best before May 2013, poured into a ’Gaffel Kolsch’ glass three times @ home on 16 Nov 2012. Typical Kolsch look: clean, clear and golden, large white head which tries to stay around on each pour (not your typical Kolsch really then, because the head usually buggers off before I’ve even seen it!). The nose and taste are semi-sweet biscuity malty with hints of cereal and hops. No great flavours here, but when do you get those in a Kolsch? I don’t dislike the style: there is nothing to dislike, I just wish the delicate flavours would grow some balls one day and surprise me! This is just above your average Koln brew in my eyes, more for it’s head than flavours to be honest.

ippopotamo36 (1485) - Rome, ITALY - APR 30, 2016
Bottle courtesy of Koelschtrinker, danke. Clear yellow pour, minimal white head dissipating relatively fast. Nose: more bread crust, esters, some caramel, peer/apple. Mouth: watery, bit syrupy, sweet grainy. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Many thanks for this beer to kevnic2008. Piwo ekologiczne z zamknieciem swing top wyglaa zwyczajnie, dość jasne pianka niewielka, zapach ulotny, w smaku srednia gorycz, slodowosc także, wysycenie trochę większe niż w innych Kolonskich piwach. Widzialem to piwo w sklepie ekologicznym i planowalek kupic i nie kupiłem. Teraz wiem ze niepotrzebnie. Piwo ogolnie przeciętne, nawet mimo ekologicznych skladnikow.

Grumbo (1117) - Suffolk, ENGLAND - APR 12, 2016
Bottle from a Cologne kiosk. Pours pale gold with a small white head. Aroma of light malt, light hop and grain. Quite sweet. Little bitterness. Light body, watery. Average carbonation. Finish is weak sweet malt. Not the best Kolsch.

Im Bio-Supermarkt gekauft. Im Glas goldig mit erstaunlich stabiler Schsumkrone. Im Geschmack etwas stärker und würziger als andere Kölsch. Hat Bio-Qualität.

Schönes, goldgelbes Kölsch, das durch seinen runden Geschmack besticht. Cremig-malzig. Leider dominieren andere Brauereien den Kölschmarkt.

McSherman (473) - North Rhine-Westphalia, GERMANY - JUN 9, 2015
Das Bio-Kölsch zeigt sich leuchtend gelb mit weißem Schaum. Kölsch-typisch dominiert das Malz bei wenig Bitterkeit. Angenehm süffig und ausgewogen.

Werckmeister (1837) - Vienna, AUSTRIA - JUN 7, 2015
500ml flip-top bottle at home from trade with Erzengel, many thanks. BB 09/2015. golden clear shiny color. small white head. smells rather sweet, citric, some bread, lemonade. light body, soft carbonation, slick mouthfeel. tastes of grains, bread, citric notes, light grass, some burned grain. long lasting finish with both medium strong herbal and grainy notes. OKish, the finish is a bit unpleasant. overall not too special beer.
