Tap @ brewery. Clear golden appearance with a white head. Fairly herbal, grainy, grassy aroma. Straw/hay, grainy malty, herbal flavor.

bjakk (245) - Skagafjordur, ICELAND - APR 26, 2012
Golden. White foam that lasts quite well. Small hint of malt in the aroma, that otherwise is almost non. low carbon and medium body. Sweet malt and also a low hop flavour. Bitter aftertaste. Nice balance.

This the best Kölsch, served by the right Köbes in the right place. Drinking it in a round of brewmasters has proven its fantastic appearance.

Delicious Kolsch. Fresh hay and grass. Fruity and a slight vinous tocuh. Delicious and dry. Smooth. Clear golden with a creamy white head.

off the wood at the brewery pub. nice shade of golden with a thin but resilient head; decent aromas of pencil shavings, chalk and various other stationery; a dainty bitterness balanced by a faint tart oatiness; well worth seeking out

A very nice atmosphere at the brewpub, located right in the center of Koln. The beer starts off very subtly but the tastes linger and grow, with a rich oaty aftertaste coming as much as 6 seconds (yes, I counted) after swallowing. On one hand this may seem to suggest an unbalanced beer, but compared to other Kolsches that are rather straightforward, it is a nice change.

Ibrew2or3 (6521) - Tempe, Arizona, USA - DEC 1, 2011
Enjoyed greatly at Die Hausbrauerei Päffgen pub. It poured out of a wooden cask via gravity feed into 0.2l tall straight sided glass with crystal clear gold body and tall white head with spotty clingy lacing. The modest aroma is soft, inviting and delivering crisp fresh spicy hops, a bit of earthy hops and faint grainy malts in the background. The taste unloads first a pleasing fresh spicy hoppiness. It then quickly picks up smooth and nourishing fresh grainy malts and then some floral hops in a supporting role. It remains crisp and fresh into the finish. This is scratching me right where I itch. It leaves a pleasing spicy hoppiness and a fading grainy maltiness deep into the after taste. At 0.2l per pour it seems odd and interesting that before I knew it I had tossed back 5 or 6 of them.

On draft at the brewery. Clear, golden body with a fluffy, white, clingy head. Lightly fruity nose (ripe apple and pear) with floral hops and meander into grassy. Some bready malt. Grainy malt flavor has a little huskiness, but is not astringent. Hop flavor is light and the esters are a little more present. Medium body is relatively sweet with a lighter bitterness than expected. Malt lingers in the finish. Good Kölsch and glad I could finally try it!

#65 Wow, für mich das beste Kölsch, dass ich jemals trinken durfte!! Frisch, aromatisch herb und fruchtig! Nicht so süß wie Mühlenkölsch, nicht so blechern herb wie Gaffel. Am Friesenplatz zu Kölle kommt das beste Kölsch her!
