yespr (34856) - Copenhagen O, DENMARK - NOV 12, 2009
From tap at the brewpub. Pours clear and golden yellow with a huge white head. Aroma is crisp hoppy with a light toasted malt note. Crisp malty and vague citrusy hoppy flavoured. Bitter and dry flavoured into the finish.

omhper (20923) - Tyresö, SWEDEN - AUG 3, 2009
Draught at the brewpub. Clear golden, creamy head. Salty and fruit. richly hoppy with soft, vital yet light body. Nice and soft, very refreshing. Dry and lively with growing late bitterness. What’s not to like in this beer? It’s delicious! A showpiece and subtle and quaffable real Kölsch can be.

thebeertourist (5077) - Oslo, NORWAY - JUL 8, 2009
On tap at the brewery. Golden with a stable head. Fresh grassy hops aroma, hints of wood. Good grassy bitterness, very dry finish. A Kölsch that impresses.

MiP (14439) - Sønderborg, DENMARK - JAN 6, 2009
Draught at the brewpub. Weak chalky aroma. Clear golden colour. Big stable white head. The flavour starts off with a hint of burnt plastic, then turns quite malty. A little bread in the finish. Could have been cleaner.

At Sünner. By far the best Kölsch. Very hoppy. Really excellent beer. Hell I have a 75 counts allert. This should solve it.

Jukkabro (3484) - Tampere, FINLAND - AUG 17, 2008
Golden colored with medium sized white head. Nice flowery aroma with fine hops, also some interesting perfumy note in here. Medium bodied, soft palate. Flavor also starts with nice flowers and same perfume, aftertaste dries with biting lemon. Well balanced and tasty kölsch.

Immy (1955) - Virginia Beach, USA - AUG 6, 2008
Right off the cask at the brewpub. Lightly hazed gold with a beauty of a white head. Lightly sweet malt and grassy notes. Very crisp and refreshing, with a nice, leafy hop bite. My favorite kolsch in Koln, I had to tear myself away...

Unavailable from bottle - I think only two "Hausbrauereien" sell it in Cologne. Very clean and crisp, easy to drink, but still strong.

sleepylopes (318) - New York, USA - APR 4, 2008
the second best kolsch I had in cologne. Very fresh and lively but lacking a bit of the dryness that could have put it over the top.grain and yeast,not up to the hype.

Ernest (6695) - Boulder, Colorado, USA - FEB 7, 2008
Draught, Max Stark, Köln. Head is initially average sized, frothy, white, mostly diminishing. Body is medium to dark yellow. Aroma is lightly malty (toasted grain), lightly hoppy (flowers), lightly to moderately yeasty (dough). Flavor is lightly to moderately sweet, lightly acidic, lightly bitter. Finish is lightly sweet, lightly acidic, lightly to moderately bitter. Light to medium body, watery/creamy texture, lively carbonation. Had high hopes, but there wasn’t much to it...light malt and hop in the nose was dominated by raw bread dough. Light on flavor as well, even for the style. Was there during lunch hour, so it was definitely being poured often...but I tend not to like raw doughy yeast-heavy beers.
