Very pale golden. Aroma is very grassy and herbal. Light body. But its downhill from there. This beer tasted like it was made from rusty water, which really brings the numbers down for me. I may get up enough courage to buy another and re-rate because I see most other reviewers liked it alot better than I did.

Golden with a hint of fruit. Goes down smooth and has great head retention.

Pale straw color,nice nose, as with a Kolsch, there just isnt much there to please me persoanl, better than an American Lager, but nothing will make me ask for this again..unless... I’m in Cologne.

BeerLimey (2154) - California, USA - AUG 4, 2002
Pale yellow, transluscent, mild carbonation, minimal foam. Aroma is perfumey, yeasty and hoppy. Light fruity sweetness (maybe blackcurrant but very mild). Dry hoppy finish and a little peppery spice, but pretty clean and quiet in the atertaste. Decent aperitif, and a subtle complexity that grows with each sip.

UPDATED: AUG 29, 2006 Neat. But re-tasting few times again in 2006 did not gave my such exelent feel as it was the case in past.
In Koln they say that it is the best Kolsch around and I have to agree . Great quality , strong head , great look and clean mouth feel . To bad we can’t buy here in Canada .4.1

duff (5484) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - JUL 30, 2002
Now we’re talking, very nicely malty and hoppy (quite a floral hop nose), smooth and lightly hop bitter. Well balanced brew, one of the better kolsch beers i’ve tried.

A very clean beer... very balanced, good malt flavor (could tell it was a decoction mash)

Gunshy (479) - Ohio, USA - JUL 25, 2002
This beer poured a clear golden straw color and formed a nice white head, leaving little lace. A medium amount of carbonation. The aroma was of lightly of hops with grainy malt present giving a bit of a breadlike aroma. The flavor was of hops and was a touch grainy. The finish was a touch tart due to the carbonation. Haven’t tried too many of this style so review may change.

So many German beers, so little money. This is one of the few that isn’t worth the money. Still a very tasty brew, but their are so many others that are either as good or better for less money.
