shrubber85 (7970) - Greenville, Indiana, USA - MAY 15, 2004
Sweet malt aroma with hint of apricot - for some reason initial smelled like bleach. A bit on the drier side than most Koelschs. Seems a bit bland. Not my favorite Koelsch.

Eyedrinkale (3213) - Astoria, New York, USA - MAY 10, 2004
Heavy dough aroma with a bit of bleach mixed in. Sharp hop bite but still very clean and refreshing indeed. The finish is drier than I expected.

invalid (302) - Columbus, Ohio, USA - APR 27, 2004
Pours yellow with a lacing white head. Smells of sweet malt a touch of fruit. Sweet flavor with a bit of tart hop finish, and the yeasts shines through. Not bad, not great.

Syd (921) - Minneapolis, Minnesota, USA - APR 24, 2004
Bottle pours a pale yellow, sparce bubbles, white head, and some lace. The aroma is sweet malt. The flavor is sweet with a slight hop finish. The palate is light and cleansing. This one is fine as a refreshing beer.

(Bottle) Pours a pale yellow color with a thick white frothy head. Has a sweet yeast aroma and taste.

Skip (206) - Indiana, USA - APR 15, 2004
The head tends to be a bit less full than others of the type, but it is a very good Kolsch if you are assured that your provider keeps a fresh inventory. Slightly fruity and yeasty (proper), and light enough to be pleasant after dinner.

mkobes (2141) - paramus, New Jersey, USA - APR 6, 2004
Crisp Clean and refreshing. Light yellow in color with a lasting head. Hoppy aroma. Nice summer beer. Good.

MaiBockAddict (1497) - Good Beer Bar Deprived, New Jersey, USA - APR 5, 2004
1/2 l bottle. Clear yellow with lasting white head. Spicy, peppery, hoppy aroma. Crisp, light, refreshing. Lingering hop bitterness adn flavor. Good underlying malt. Lawnmower beer!

   AROMA 6/10   APPEARANCE 3/5   TASTE 5/10   PALATE 2/5   OVERALL 11/20
Aurelius (4379) - Tallahassee, Florida, USA - MAR 22, 2004
UPDATED: MAR 15, 2006 Soft, decent straw-malt aroma. Perfunctory label, light pale beer redeemed by the large bottle. Not very edgy at all, perhaps a bit chalky and undercarbonated. Medium-light sweetness, lightly hopped, some notes of carob (or otherwise unbitter, fruity chocolate,) grain and oatmeal. Surprising twang in the finish, considering the general lack of acidity in the drinking. Mild carob-type qualities in the finish as well.

muzzlehatch (4424) - Burlington, Vermont, USA - MAR 14, 2004
500 ml bottle. Very, very light golden, huge foamy light head, very clear; somewhat different visually from American examples of the style (this is I think my first "authentic" German sample). Malty/grassy nose is reasonably fresh but rather weak. Light-bodied, fresh and sweet, low-to-medium hoppiness, exceptionally smooth and easy-drinking. Very good, but I definitely want some other examples of the "authentic" Kolsch; right now McNeills of Vermont has my vote.
