On tap in cologne. A nice crisp drinkable refreshing kolsch beer. Classic German head. Only wish they served this in a bigger glass.

kjc51478 (383) - Valparaiso, Indiana, USA - DEC 13, 2010
0.33l Bottle. Pours a very light yellow with fizzy bubbles but no head. Aroma is sweet floral. Taste is sweet malts but is mostly watery with a very fizzy carbonation. One of the most disappointing Kölsches I’ve tasted.

Pinball (10796) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - OCT 27, 2010
swingtop bottle from PlanB. clear dark yellow, smooth large white head, that disappears rather fast. nice flowery, faint citrussy, breadish and sweet malty aroma. flavor is quite sweet , somewhat malty, faint bitterness towards the end. Quite a bitter-sweet sensation. hops are more flowery than bitter, yet don’t really stand out unless You look for them. If You like sweeter beers, then high drinkabillity, if not - then avoid.

Fred82 (2115) - Québec City, Quebec, CANADA - SEP 5, 2010
On tap at brewpub in Cologne. First Kolsch of the day
Appearance : Clear yellow with foamy head.
Aroma : Quite malty with herbal hops. Quite subtle overall.
Taste : Nice malt, a little bit citrusy. Finish is a little bit bitter with nice malt and nice herbal hops. Perfect carbonation. Finish is a bit citrusy.
Overall : Quite subtle and straightforward but so drinkable, refreshing and clean. Very unique. Right there I understood what Kolsch was all about. The perfect light, clean and drinkable beer. Huge thanks to kolschtrinker for showing us around the best Kolsch brewpubs.

asheft (2509) - Ottawa, Ontario, CANADA - JUL 12, 2010
[bottle] Weak aroma of citrusy grain with some spicy apple accents. Clear apple juice appearance with a white foam that drops to leave no cover. Gentle malty flavour with a little grain and some delicate fruity notes that are accompanied by a mild acidity as well as a touch of sulfur. Light body, medium carbonation, clean finish. Quaffable.

blipp (6111) - Newark, New Jersey, USA - JUL 12, 2010
Draft. Pours light gold with a white head. Pale malty aroma with a bit of a grainy note. The flavor is well balanced with clean pale malts and light grassy hops. Nice.

FatPhil (9344) - Tallinn, ESTONIA - JUN 28, 2010
330 ml bottle (One Pint Pub, Helsinki, Kölsch Days 2010)
light malty aroma. crisp carbonation. papery retronasals. slightly mushroomy body. this brewery clearly has quality issues, as the first one I ordered the barman binned just by looking at its complete lack of head. Pleasant and simple quaffer, but with no interesting aspects. Pleasant milky body, and crisp biting hoppy finish save it for the doldrums.

bhensonb (11054) - Woodland, California, USA - APR 20, 2010
Draft at the brewhouse. Pours bright gold with a foamy, clingy white head. Malt nose with a touch of hop. Medium body, light sharpish carbonation. Light noble hop type flavor. Off & on it’s a bit cereal. Nice, light bitter finish. Rating to style would get 4.
