Beerenberger (1538) - Fischer, Texas, USA - OCT 15, 2014
A light sweet aroma comes from a clear light amber pour which provides no head or lacing. The taste follows the nose - a pleasing faint sweetness makes this Kölsch easy to drink and very enjoyable. Medium-light body moderate carbonation? Overall, quite pleasant and rewarding.

ExpendableHero (764) - Florida, USA - SEP 20, 2014
Clear golden beer with a white head. Skunky/funky aromas aren’t that great. Tastes of some muted corn mash, flowery hops, and some malt. Bittersweet finish. Decent for the style and very drinkable.

Alengrin (2425) - BELGIUM - AUG 31, 2014
Classic Kölsch with regular, quickly decreasing head and pale golden blonde colour. Subtle aroma, light malt sweetness, apple, grass, floral hops. Light but clean and crisp malty taste, spicy notes (mint) with a dry, medium bitter finish; thin mouthfeel.

Presentation: It was poured from a brown 500 ml bottle into a tall pilsner glass. There appears to be no abv printed on the label. Appearance: The body is very clear with some visible carbonation and it has a bright golden yellow color. This is topped off with an average white foam head. The fades quickly leaving a wispy thin film layer that sets up at the edge of the glass and makes some lacing. Smell: As I was pouring I was getting lots of floral and botanical hop notes with just the slightest touch of citrus. This is backed up by light pilsner like maltiness. Taste / Palate: The flavor matches the aroma but with the light bready/cracker like maltiness up front and the hops finishing up. Overall it’s fairly clean and crisp. It finishes dry and the palate is light and refreshing.

Moravius (595) - Berlin, GERMANY - AUG 18, 2014
UPDATED: AUG 19, 2014 Flasche von einem Kiosk in Siegburg. - Strohgelb, klar. - In der Nase nur schwach würziger Hopfen. - Im Antrunk süßlich-pappiges Malz, kaum vernehmbarer, schwach würziger Hopfen. Mild rezent, wäßrig, leer. Schwacher, leicht süßlicher Abgang mit schwach zitronigen Hopfennoten. - Ein Bier ohne Eigenschaften - nichtssagend und ohne jede Spur von Interesse. Eher Limo als Bier.

VincentKabel (221) - Haarlem, NETHERLANDS - AUG 11, 2014
Kölsch, and that pretty much sums up this beer. It’s malty, light and slightly hopped in the finisch. Light beer and very drinkable.

Beerkenstock (57) - - AUG 8, 2014
Drink cold (8°) Eye: low carbonation, fast dissipating white head. Golden colour. Nose: hops, citrus fruits. Mouth: hoppy, hints of honey. Palate: not too long of a finish but hops as well. Overall: decent to good lager i could recommend if you’re in Cologne.
