bjakk (241) - Skagafjordur, - 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.

Fin (7013) - 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

Oakes (11786) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - MAR 22, 2014
Dark gold, not a ton of aroma. Taste is lightly bitter, touch of malts, herbal finish emphasizes hop bitterness.

ThirstyBird (1181) - 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.

lembeek (142) - ITALY - FEB 28, 2014
Dorata, brillante, con una schiuma persistente e aderente. aromi eleganti di mela e malto. Nel palato morbida, watery, fruttata. Finale secco moderatamente amaro.

77ships (3313) - Antwerpen, BELGIUM - DEC 9, 2013
200 ml. draft @ Bierhaus en d’r Salzgass. Clear golden with a creamy white head. Nose smells pretty sweet with grains, sweet malts & touch of corn, seems a touch off. Taste is pretty sweet, light honey and sweet corn, white bread, sweet herbs & lightly metallic. Light & easy to drink. Looking at the scores, I expected this one to be head and shoulders above all the other Kölsch’s which oddly didn’t turn out to be the case, I actually preferred Pfaffen over this one plus couple of others. It is not bad or anything but I looked this one up on RB whilst deciding which places to hit in Cologne. This beer itself didn’t fulfil for me the promise made by seeing the praise, odd, maybe its me. It is probably me :)

Usko (149) - Bavaria, GERMANY - NOV 27, 2013
Poured from a barrel in the brewpub in Köln. Golden color, white and long lasting head. Aroma of malt, grain, some bread and grassy/herbal hop notes. Taste is heading in the same direction, but malty notes dominate.Balance is just perfect, so much taste and so good to drink, love it!

richlamb (8) - AUSTRALIA - OCT 7, 2013 does not count
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!

GothGargoyle (934) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - OCT 2, 2013
Poured from a barrel in the brewery in Köln. Pale yellow, crystal clear with a good white head. Aroma is grain, clover, wildflowers, bread, hint of honey. Medium-light body without seeming watery, refreshing on the palate, nicely balanced. Taste is freshly baked bread, chamomile, subtle hops. Easy to drink continuously. Fortunately they replace the 200ml glass with a full one every time it gets empty
