MiP (13478) - 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 (6143) - 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.

chriso (7347) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - NOV 3, 2007
Draught at GBBF, August 2006. I’ve never been to Koln and bottled Kolsch just doesn’t seem to work. Barrels have found their way to GBBF in the past but didn’t always seem to have survived the journey too well. However, this one seemed to capture the essence of Kolsch really well. Pale gold with plenty of condition. Light malt aroma. Slight citrus in evidence. Clean, fresh and zippy. Not a huge amount to it but a very good example of the style away from home More than the sum of its parts..

Draft on location. Lightly sweet, skunky. Tastes alarmingly of pot. Better than usual lacing. Light mint.

BenRod (48) - Springfield, Missouri, USA - OCT 13, 2007
Light golden color with nice head. Aroma is very thin, but has hint of citrus and wheat. Flavor is very light with a slight taste of lemon. Very easy to drink.
