Kristall-König (2257) - Oldenburg, GERMANY - AUG 11, 2011
Verhalten fruchtig in der Nase, hintergründig hopfig. Fruchtig-süßer Antrunk. Im weiteren Geschmacksverlauf wird das Bier dann feinherb mit fruchtigem Touch bis in den Abgang. Gutes Kölsch. Kann mit dem Pfaffen aber nicht ganz mithalten. Getrunken im Test vom 28.2.2009, Gebinde: FassBrauhaus Päffgen.

MartinT (7952) - Montreal, Quebec, CANADA - JUL 10, 2011
UPDATED: JUL 31, 2011 My Bottom Line :
Cushiony pils malts develop honeyed angles to envelop this masterful Kölsch’s herbal hops, as minute banana esters add depth to an already evocative quaff.

Further Personal Perceptions :
-A healthy head of foam laces endlessly atop the clear golden.
-The fluffy natural carbonation and lean residual sugars make for great drinkability. A veritable pillow of a mouthfeel.
-The herbal hop finish is levelled with the rest of the brew’s moderate intensity.
-Malts also offer cracker-like flavors.
-This one looked and felt like it was more loosely filtered than other Kölsches in town. In any case, the yeast seemed to play a bigger role in the aroma and flavor profile.

From the wooden cask at Max Stark and Gästätte Lommerzheim.

A bit maltier than your average Kölsch. The mouthfeel is clean but not very refreshing.

2011-05-29, from barrel at Gastätte Max Stark, 7-4-6-3-13=33
The color is a darker shade of blond, with a generous compact head; and served in this conditions it’s surely a hit. The aroma has some delicate malt, elegant. The body is not too thin; the flavor is mild and a bit salty. Correct bitterness; the final seems to be quite dry. After a few glasses, a light grassy touch seems to appear. Pleasant.

2011-05-28, from barrel at the Bierhaus en d’r Salzgass, 7-4-6-3-14=34
The color is a darker shade of blond, with fluffy head. The aroma is mild, delicate, with some malt, and a very light citrusy touch (orange and cedar). The mouthfeel is round (if possible for a Kölsch), with some malt flavor and light hay; correct bitterness. Pleasant, fresh.

Draught@One Pint Pub, Helsinki. Golden colour, small white head. Aroma is earth cellar, some maltyness, mild fruits and some herbs. Flavour is being quite similar with a mild salty and herbal touch as well.

RexTalionis (2517) - FINLAND - APR 16, 2011
On tap at Hausbrauerei Päffgen in Köln. Poured clear orange in colour with whitish head. Buttery and malty aroma. Flavour malty and bready with a bit bitter finish. Quite pleasant aftertaste.

seritomi (298) - HUNGARY - JAN 22, 2011
Remek sörözőre, pontosabban "sörházétteremre"bukkantunk Köln belvárosában. A pincében főzik a kölschüket amit fahordóból csapolnak. Ez is egy jobb féle kölsch a kis házi főzdékre jellemző kissé zavaros, nyersebb ízzel és nem kevés vad, agresszív komlózással. Ez nekem mindíg is ízlett a sok mainstream megafőzdék világában. Érdemes inni jó pár kémcsővel. (2dl)

This wonderful Kölsch - one of the only ones to still be exclusively brewed for in house service - is one of the best Kölsch.

Fred82 (2115) - Québec City, Quebec, CANADA - SEP 5, 2010
On tap at brewpub.
Appearance : Clear yellow, nice big head. Extensive lacing.
Aroma : Very fresh malt with slightly herbal hops. Some grain. Quite fruity.
Taste : Nice malt, quite fruity. Slightly herbal and floral.
Overall : Very nice fruity profile. The fruitiest I’ve had so far. Still very clean, highly drinkable and refreshing. Maybe better than the Peters which is my favourite so far.
