on tap poured into pint glass a: light straw color, fizzy head that has good renetion. nice bubbling carbonation s: not much aroma, what exsists is malt and spicy noble hop. clean t: begins slightly sweet on the tounge. Gives way to hop bitterness/spice. Well balanced m&d: light bodied, carbonation gives a good mouth

gunnar (6199) - Sandnes, NORWAY - MAY 21, 2015
Bottle from a corner shop in Cologne. Pours clear straw with a big creamy white head, high carbonated. Sweet soft malty aroma, floral hops. Taste is moderate sweet with a strange metallic note not the best from Cologne. .

NikkTwist (1913) - Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, USA - MAY 20, 2015
Draft at Khyber Pass. Clear gold pour with a solid fizzy/foamy white head that mostly disappears. Toasted corn nuts. Expected milled yeasty/bready notes. Feels slightly more substantial than your standard Kolsch. Just enough astringency in the finish to keep you coming back.

jamesewelch (174) - Burlington, Vermont, USA - MAY 14, 2015
Notes from BJCP tasting session, 2-4oz sample from 12oz bottle

Aroma: light malt with grainy sweetness, slight fruitiness - maybe apples, pears, or honey, floral hops, clean and fresh

Appearance: pale gold color with brilliant clarity, white head, not persistent

Taste: Grainy sweet almost corny, subtle spicy hops, near fruitiness or honey, very clean, low bitterness

Palate: medium body, average carbonation, smooth and crisp

Overall: A very clean kolsch. Well done with a slight fruitiness or honey taste. Aroma was very pleasant, slightly lower on bitterness than I expected, but overall a solid Kolsch.

Vandenberq (36) - Berlin, GERMANY - MAY 2, 2015
Frisch, fein karbonisiert, Malzig- und Bitterkeit perfekt gegeneinander abgestimmt. Nichts stört, dabei aber auch nicht öde: sehr angenehm. – Minimalistische Flaschenklassik mit Goldrand, Zierde jedes Schreibtischs.

FatPhil (10324) - Tallinn, ESTONIA - APR 28, 2015
500ml bottle (Petrol station between Dusseldorf and Olpe)
Even though it’s warm, there are no esters in this. Utterly indistinguishable from pale lager. Taste likewise. Some hoppy bitter finish, but it’s papery and rough.

Clear medium golden, large frothy white head, good retention and lacing; sweet malt nose, grainy, grass; fresh taste, medium sweet and bitter, malty; light to medium body, oily to watery texture, soft carbonation, aftertaste smooth bittersweet, malty on the palate, light spicy notes; nice classic Kölsch.
