tmoreau (2934) - Lombard, Illinois, USA - JUL 31, 2009
On tap at the Bavarian Lodge, Lisle, IL. and served in a tall Kolsch glass. The color was golden, the head was white, quickly diminishing foam, and the lacing was intermittent ribbons. The nose was light malt, and some grassy and noble hop aromas. The flavor also added to these a slight hint of lemon. The body was light, the carbonation was fizzy, and the finish was somewhat dry. Crisp and refreshing.

theisti (3480) - Leawood, Kansas, USA - JUL 28, 2009
500 ml bottle purchased at Gomers in Lees Summit, Missouri. Pour is almost clear golden with a frothy 4 inch head that falls to a rocky cap. Slight lacing. Aroma of mineral straw, hay, and earthy maltiness. Taste is the mineral, with straw hay earthiness and more herbal mineral in the back. Slight vegetal (green pepper) thing going on, but mild. Palate is clean, lowish carbonation, light to medium bodied. very much a true Kölsch, nicely drinkable.

Bov (10485) - Bienne, SWITZERLAND - JUL 25, 2009
courtesy of DerDoppelbock - clear dark golden colour with a little foam left; aroma of fresh herbs with a light fruity touch (apple), moderate malt body and with a quite high and tart carbonation; quite dry herbal and gently fruity finish with a hint of bitterness - refreshing and simple

doboy (424) - Morehead City, North Carolina, USA - JUL 21, 2009
Bottle courtesy of the one and only Drbayern. I like Kolsch. Good Kolsch. Sunner is good Kolsch. The aroma is fresh and clean, not overwhelming. It pours a light yellow, clear and clean. Great effervescence. A nice white head of very fine lace. Taste of malt and hops is mild as it enters the mouth, and gentle as it rolls back for a mild bittering. Deserves a better precentile rating. Did I mention that I like Sunner Kolsch, a really good Kolsch drinker’s Kolsch!!!!

BillKismet (3502) - Seattle, Washington, USA - JUL 17, 2009
Blonde with a fizzy head that quickly settles to a thin layer. Nose is pleasantly grainy, lightly malty, with mild esters. Light grainy/malty body. Medium hopping. Ok, but rather insubstantial. Tastes like a decent foreign pils.

vyvvy (4673) - Florissant, Missouri, USA - JUL 14, 2009
Pours golden yellow with a soapy white head. The aroma is quite grainy with spicy hops, lightly toasted pale malt and a hint of lemon. Medium body with a light crisp bite and fairly subdued carbonation. The flavor begins much like the aroma with a bit of grassiness and a hint of sulfur. The finish brings more malt and a bit of a holdhold cleaner taste. An okay kolsch.

DrBayern (1139) - Morehead City, North Carolina, USA - JUN 26, 2009
16.9 oz. bottle. Pours a crystal clear yellow/gold under a medium white head with some decent lace and durability. Light fruitiness is first on the nose, some grainy aromas, and a very delicate floral character. Light body and soft carbonation, crisp and clean on the palate as it should be. The flavor profile is in line with the aromas as a gentle fruity sweetness starts off, tempered by an ever so gentle bitterness. The finish is barely dry. A nice thirst quencher. Seemed fairly fresh. A true Kolsch is hard to come by, unless you’re in Cologne. I think the only two that I’ve had are Reissdorff and Gaffel, and this is the best of the three.
