Fresh cut grass and loam aroma with a little honeyish sweetness. Hazy golden with hardly any carbonation in the glass. Dime thin head. Meager lacing. kinda malty hayish flavors with a touch of sweetness. Very drinkable. Very refreshing. One dimesional, but pleasantly so.

Magjayran (1378) - Durham, North Carolina, USA - JUN 21, 2005
UPDATED: AUG 28, 2005 Bright yellow beer with a very large white head. Light yet very refreshing and flavorful beer. Lightly malty with some citrus notes as well as an aroma of fresh cut grass. Very good for a hot day.

MiP (15272) - Sønderborg, DENMARK - JUN 20, 2005
Bottle. Bready vegetable aroma, not unpleasant. Yellow colour, big, unstable white head. Light body. Quite clean tasting and refreshing with a little acidity, but quite boring. Flavour and aftertaste also have some vegetable.

TheBeerGod (6010) - Newport News, Virginia, USA - JUN 18, 2005
Bottle. Pours straw colored yellow with a tall frothy effervescent white head. Nose is slightly fruity, grassy and lightly hoppy. Some light bread notes as well. Taste is doughy, light fruits, big grassy hops, light yeast and grains. Body is light and effervescent. Very refreshing! Finishes sort of dry with light dough and yeast, grass and some light papery notes.

Cletus (6355) - Connecticut, USA - JUN 13, 2005
Poured out into a reissdorf kolsch glass. Pours strawlike in color with the generous fluffy head typical of kolsch. Smells of grass, sugar, apples, bananas and coriander. Tastes of grass, morning dew, honeysuckle, and a bit of pepper and spices. Lively mouthfeel. Smooth finish. This is a superb example of my favorite style of summer beer.

Papsoe (25063) - Frederiksberg, DENMARK - JUN 13, 2005
(Bottle 50 cl) Clear, pale golden with an almost absent head. Very pronounced, sweetish malty feel, a great softness and a very discreet bitterness. Kölsch is not the world’s most exciting style of beer but it’s soft and sympathetic. 240505

Lubiere (12878) - Ottawa, Ontario, CANADA - JUN 11, 2005
Golden kolsh with a nice creamy white head. Lightly sweet malt in aroma with grassy notes. Sweet fruity malt with a hint of pineapples, and some faint hops becoming stronger in mouth as tasting progresses. Quite nice. Bought at Beers of the World (fall 2004).

Sigmund (6719) - Tau, NORWAY - MAY 29, 2005
500 ml bottle, at the foreign beer bar of the 32nd Cambridge Beer Festival. (Was also available on draught there, but not when I decided to sample it.) This was my first Kölsch ever, as far as I can remember. Moderate head, yellow colour. Looks like a pilsener or a helles, smells like a decent pilsener: grass, hints of tropical fruits. Flavour nearly like a decent helles or one of the better pale lagers, but a slight yeastiness betrays its origin. Decent, but did not impress me.

Had this as packed fortification for the trip from Köln to Dresden. Light on the palate and delicious, somewhat syrupy, but in a delicious blended way.

lagermonkey (725) - Marietta, Georgia, USA - MAY 10, 2005
Pours a very pale gold with a creamy white head. Smell is lightly bitter and grassy. Some citrusy hop persistence in the background but the flavor profile is mostly crisp, pale malt. Lightly fruity and grassy. SOme fizz and just a hint of skunk. Very crisp and clean with a lightly bitter aftertaste. Very easy to drink. Know what this tastes like? Ballantine XXX. I thought this was my first foray into kolsch but it is just like Ballantine, one of my favorite cheap standbys. Think I’ll stick with a sixer of Ballantine cans, this doesn’t show me much else to warrant import prices. Maybe I’ll save kolsch for a future trip to Cologne...
