Light and effervescent smell and taste, taste is all malt and slightly sweet, low carbonation, boring

Helder lichtgeel bier met schuim. Smaak is hoppig bitter en krachtig, hooi en gras achtig. Blijft redelijk lang hangen, uitstekend bier.

Tap at some Italian place (!!) in Tempe AZ.

Light pour, while head, served in the proper branded glassware. Nice. Man, the lack of love on this site makes me sad. A good kolsch is a delgiht and it’s a tragedy (for them, not me) that the vanilla-bean-bourbon-cinnamon-weasel-shit-frappaci crowd doesn’t see this. But whatever. Crisp, slightly lemony, a very nice if subtle hop bite, grass, delicate but delicious. Great beer. I didn’t expect it to have held up well across the ocean and sitting around at some restaurant, but for whatever reason, it was in good shape. Wow -- an unexpected treat.

Slightly sweet as far as a kölsch goes. Smells and tastes a bit of cereal or corn. Pretty drinkable.

Bottle (500 ml). Clear pale yellow with a medium white head and little lacing. Aroma is of fresh cereals, light herbal notes, hints of citrus/lemon and floral notes. Taste is slightly sweet with light cereals notes, light fruitiness, floral notes and herbal notes. Light body. Medium carbonation. Mild finish with a light lingering sweetness. Good Kölsch. Super drinkable. I would have been curious to try it from cask.

Crystal clear straw gold, smallish head of foam but dang, it won’t go away entirely. Corny, hoppy in a Noble Pils kind of way. Smells like what a desert would smell like if it was a beer. Lovely grainy corn applied to this Koelsch. The hops have a nice dry and bitter bite to it. Funny that I look at corn as a negative in the macro lagers but here, it works fine. Light bodied, medium carbonation. A classic for a reason, me thinks.

On tap at Reissdorf. Clear yellow with white head. Aroma is cereal and some farm notes. Taste is clean cereal with moderate bitterness and light tartness. Palate is dry but not as much as Päffgen. Drinks very well.

Beerenberger (1563) - 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.

Bestes Bier überhaupt in der besten Stadt. Ein muss für jeden Kölner. Ich trinke es am liebsten eiskalt

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.
