mmmbeer (1334) - Austin, Texas, USA - SEP 12, 2010
Draught shaker @ Nuernberg Brauhaus in Pflugerville, TX- served a transparent yellow color with a half finger white foamy head that laced very well, light aroma of wheat, malt, and grass. Hits the mouth with a light body, malt is very light, middle has a small hop bite to it, finish has a bitter/ grainy honey feel to it. Rather refreshing.

Fred82 (2116) - Québec City, Quebec, CANADA - SEP 5, 2010
On tap at brewpub.
Appearance : Clear yellow, foamy head, extensive lacing.
Aroma : Some grain with light hints of honey. A little bit buttery. Not so good.
Taste : Grain with some honey. A bit mineral and herbal.
Overall : Carbonation may have been a bit too soft. Far from being as good as the Peters.

KyotoLefty (7874) - Kyoto, JAPAN - AUG 28, 2010
Gravity, in their old brauhaus in the aldstadt, Cologne. Darker gold than usual, with a bubbly head. Malty, slightly fruity aroma. Rather malty flavor with quite a bit of fruit and a nice, peppery finish. Cereals, sweet malts, not a lot of hop flavor, but ok bitterness and balance. Decent, though not so special.

ComradeK (1071) - The Vale of Dundas, AUSTRALIA - AUG 17, 2010
500ml bottle. Pours a clear light gold, with a large but fading head, and very little lacing. The aroma is an odd mixture of caramel and some doughy notes, and is not altogether brilliant. There are some quite nice citrus hops to start with, but these fade into a somewhat insipid slightly sweet finish. It’s passable, but far from great. Stylistically, this seems to sit somewhere between an ale and a lager. I’m not sure if the beer’s problems are stylistic, though, or if it is just this example.

imaragingbull (572) - Sydney, AUSTRALIA - AUG 4, 2010
1pt 0.9floz bottle. 5.3% ABV. Pours clear light yellow with white head, lacing the glass. Light floral and grassy hop aromas coupled with grainy malt and bread. Medium-light mouthfeel showcasing well balanced hop flavours and bitterness. Zesty bitterness accentuated by a medium-high carbonation. Medium-dry finish with a residual caramel sweetness and hop flavour lingering through. Very nice, flavoursome kolsch.

elihapa (1533) - Honolulu, Hawaii, USA - AUG 4, 2010
7/17/10 notes: Bottle. Good lightly floral bready aroma. Color is bright gold with a small head. Flavor is light malt, bit of a herbal hops, soft mouthfeel. Goes down gently, with pleasant flavors and finish.

Pershing (488) - Garland, Texas, USA - JUL 28, 2010
Pale yellow with fizzy carbonation that fades quickly. Grainy aroma, thin crisp taste on the palate with some lingering spice. Cleaner and smoother than the American versions.

My first truly German Kolsch and I think I finally get the appeal. All of the American versions were so lame and this one is very, very refreshing.

brekeriet (139) - SWEDEN - JUL 14, 2010
On tap at Brauerie Sünner im Walfisch. Malty, fruity aroma. Nice taste. A bit sour. Quite pale. No lasting head.

Immy (1955) - Virginia Beach, USA - JUL 13, 2010
On tap at Busch Gardens in Williamsburg, VA. Shocked the hell outta me seeing non-AB taps, sale of AB notwithstanding. Anyway, clear gold with a very nice, fizzy, white head. Bready malt nose, cereal and crisp floral and grass hop aromas. Bold (for a Kölsch) grassy hop flavors over mildly sweet bread. Palate is light, but rounded out well. Really liked this one - a really pleasant surprise in AB-land!
