BlackHaddock (4964) - 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.

McSherman (340) - 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 (962) - 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.

ZeroDome (65) - GERMANY - MAR 19, 2015
Pale Kölsch beer. Head is not very big but lasting. Floral, hoppy aroma, bit maltiness. Light-medium bodied. Very clear, not too bitter, but in the higher range for this style. Very good Kölsch (one of the better ones!), but not a special beer.

Tayeth (507) - North Rhine-Westphalia, GERMANY - SEP 14, 2014
Sehr leckeres Kölsch mit einem zitronigen Einschlag sowohl im Aroma als auch im Geschmack. Der Nachgeschmack ist etwas pappig, aber ansonsten rundum gelungen.

Geruch leicht nach Hopfen und Malz. Im Geschmack dann eher malzig. Zum Ende bitter und mit leichter Hopfennote. Gefällt.

Moravius (864) - Berlin, GERMANY - MAY 14, 2014
Flasche (50 cl) von Bio-Berlin, Prenzlauer Allee (MHD: 7/14). - Orangegelb, blank. - Nase schwach fruchtig, im Hintergrund dumpfe Malzsüße. - Der Antrunk wirkt matt, mit unangenehm mild-süßlichem hellem Malz und nur einem Hauch von orangefruchtigem Hopfen. Unangenehm schal, wäßrig. Auch im Abgang schwach süßliches Malz und nur eine Andeutung von blumigem Hopfen. - Fade, leblose Plörre. Schmeckt wie der abgestandene Rest aus halb ausgetrunkenen Gläsern am Morgen nach der Party. Könnte nicht mal als Radler durchgehen, dafür ist es zu schal.

Usko (171) - Bavaria, GERMANY - MAY 7, 2014
0.5l bottle, small white head, clear golden color. Aroma of malts, stone fruits, bread and cereals. Taste starts medium sweet, bread notes, a bit metallic, medium bitterness. Character is more Lager/Export than Kölsch.

Catch up rating. Typical Kolsch clean, clear and golden, large white head . The nose and taste are semi-sweet biscuity malty with hints of cereal and hops. This is just above your average Koln brew in my eyes, more for it’s head than flavors to be honest.
