ruffian (149) - montvale, New Jersey, USA - JUN 18, 2006
Good nice kolsch. Had it at the source. Obligitory golden color, white head. Thin beer, light on the bitterness. Hard to pull out any real flavor/aroma, probably due to my imbibing heavily the night before in Dusselsdorf. Nice refreshing beer, pretty much what a Kolsch should be.

Tried at friend’s house in Köln. Very malty compared to other Kolsch beers. Sweeter, Easy to drink. Dry finish.

tricksta_p (1195) - Steenwijk, NETHERLANDS - AUG 28, 2014
Aroma of malt, grain, cardboard. Flavour is grainy, a little sweetness, with a light bitter finish. Not being a fan of Kolsch, this one did not change that view.

Alengrin (2087) - BELGIUM - AUG 24, 2014
Lesser known Kölsch with crackling, yellowish white, not very stable head and clear golden colour. Aroma of sweetish pale malts, bit grainy, straw, young cheese, honey, green apple, some soapy hops. Light, crisp and clear ’pils malt’ taste, very lightly sweetish, smooth, fairly strong carbonation, minerals, late and mild hoppy finish. Okay Kölsch but not the most refined representative of the style.

JulienHuxley (3267) - Hilversum, NETHERLANDS - JUL 19, 2014
On tap in some restaurant seeing the brewery was closed. Very pale yellow pour with white head. Aroma is grainy, light grassiness, very faint apple notes. Taste is grainy, light fruity sweetness, pleasant grassy finish. Light palate, light carbonation. Subtle and refreshing.

caesar (5203) - Bunnik/Utrecht, NETHERLANDS - JUL 1, 2014
Bottled from some German kiosk in Koln, dated 08.04.14 BB 08.08.14, large sample, served in a shaker. Clear light yellow color, medium frothy white head. Aroma is grainy, slight wort, bit cardboard, bit spicy and grassy hop, slight buttery. Soft bitter taste, slight buttery. Bottled this style is almost always worse than from draft, but besides the slight cardboard its not that bad. Would love to see this (style) fresh and with dryhopping.
