Bright and clear with a course white head, the aroma is sweet malt and floral hops. The flavour is very clean and leans to malt with a light honey sweetness, followed by a mild bitterness without a hint of harshness. Excellent drinkability!

A dozen glasses at the brewery and some others. Crystal clear gold pour with rich lacy white head. Aroma is hoppy, probably why this kölsch is so successful - I secretly wanted to hate is, but ended up having to admit that it was the best we had in Köln. The freshness was top, which helps, but it is also the hoppiest and has the most character of all the kölsches in my opinion. Great grassy hops, smooth silky sweet grain flavors, light vanilla, some dusty hop. Palate is still pretty dry, with the same low carbonation that makes these beers so easy drinking. A world class example of what a summer terrasse beer should be all over the world, but is only in Köln.

StueyD (1121) - Heacham, Norfolk, ENGLAND - JUL 10, 2014
A bright, golden yellow coloured beer with a frothy white head. A light malty aroma, biscuity with a hint of caramel. Dry mouthfeel. Dry clean, malt taste is followed by a tart, pithy citrus, grapefruit flavour. The finish is tart. Tasted at Bierhaus am Rhein, Köln, Germany.

Das beste Kölsch in der Stadt. Sieht aus wie flüssiges Gold. Am besten schmeckt es im Stammhaus in der Friesenstrasse.

MichaelAwesome (3605) - Wanne-Eickel, GERMANY - JUN 6, 2014
Eine Legende ist es und wie gerne haette ich geschrieben, dass es eine wundervolle Erfahrung war ! Mitnichten, denn mehr als ein kerniges und sueffiges Koelsch mit etwas Buitter und Wuerze war es dann doch nicht. Leider hat die Reissdorf-Flasche vom Norma mehr an Aromen intus als das hier. Schade, aber ein gutes Rating darf kein Zwang sein.

McTapps (3624) - Ruhrcity, North Rhine-Westphalia, GERMANY - JUN 2, 2014
On tap at the brewpub. Pours out in a deep golden colour with beautiful steady head and medium body. Aroma of hops and malt with some grassy hints. Taste of fresh hops, light malt, bread, grass, citrus and flowers. Easy drinkable and quite nice. But not that exceptional.

caesar (4953) - Bunnik/Utrecht, NETHERLANDS - MAY 10, 2014
Tap @ Gaststatte en dr Salzgasse, medium sample. Clear yellow to golden color, medium white head. Aroma of spicy and earthy hop. Medium bitter in finish. Shows a bit more character than most other kolsch. With all these Kolsch, the most important thing is freshness.

Fin (7276) - Merton, Oxfordshire, England, Oxfordshire, ENGLAND - MAR 27, 2014
On tap at Brauhaus Päffgen, Friesenstrasse, Koln, Germany, Thursday 27th March 2014 Clear as you like. sunny day golden, it is sparkling, looks utterly superb. A touch sweet to start but with a tight lightly flinty steely bitterness, this the leads to a nice hoppiness not sure if it is Tettnang or what but I like the hops. Wonderfully refreshing a very nice beer. A6 A5 T8 P4 Ov15 3.8

Dark gold, not a ton of aroma. Taste is lightly bitter, touch of malts, herbal finish emphasizes hop bitterness.

ThirstyBird (1483) - Düsseldorf, GERMANY - MAR 22, 2014
Gravity poured from the wooden cask at the brewery. Pours a clear yellow with a 2 inch white cap that sticks around. Nice lacing. The aroma is mild...light fruit and a touch of spice. The taste is slightly tart fruit, mild hops that very nicely mingle with the light malt character leaving the mouth slightly dry and bitter. Very light body but silky smooth going down with carbonation on the mild side. Hugely drinkable.
