50 cl can.
Pours clear golden color with a small head. Sweetish corn aroma, some malts, faint fruits. Hay and some malts on the flavor. Kind of one dimensional and boring.

Idiosynkrasie (4099) - Bielefeld, GERMANY - NOV 8, 2014
473ml can. Minimally cloudy, yellow-ish, pale golden colour with small, frothy to creamy, half-way lasting, minimally lacing, white head. Husky, malt-spicy, slightly herbal aroma, a touch of citrusy hops. Taste is slightly citrusy hoppy, minimally sweet pale malty, decent hop bitterness. Better than the usual gnat’s piss covered by this style.

StefanSD (2191) - Lakeside, California, USA - SEP 4, 2014
16 oz can. Pours a hazy yellow color with a small white head that soon fades to nothing. The aroma is mild and indistinct with traces of grains and corn. The taste features breads, sweet grains, a hint of cirrus and hay. All set nicely in a cracker malt base. The palate is full and smooth with lively carbonation. Finishes long and dry. Overall: Decent Kolsch.

Poured from a can. Straw colored with a thin white head. Aroma of bananas and wheat. We'll balanced not too bitter with a hint of sweetness. Perfect for a BBQ. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

skmikeg (1000) - Cherry Hill, New Jersey, USA - JUL 13, 2014
On tap at North Park Brewery. Pours a yellow-orange with a one finger white head with some lacing. Aroma is of bready malts, biscuit malt, grassy hops, spicy noble hops, and some pine. Taste is pretty similar to the aroma. Has a medium body with a semi creamy mouthfeel and a dry, slightly bitter, medium, refreshing finish. Overall, a very nice Kolsch that is very drinkable and refreshing.
