felsenpils (134) - Sacramento, California, USA - MAY 21, 2013
This is the real deal, a perfect Kölsch. Bright golden color, thick white head, great foam retention, that true Kölsch aroma, full dry taste. For those of you who have never been to the city of Cologne, this is their beer style and Sünner still uses open fermenters to produce a fantastic beer. Do not rate this beer if you are unfamiliar with the style! This beer style is very unique and its nuances take a long time to discern. That wonderful Kölsch aroma from their proprietary yeast strain is unbeatable. A very delicate beer which deserves more recognition outside of Germany.

Stine (1663) - Minneapolis, Minnesota, USA - AUG 26, 2015
Clear gold with a hint of haze. Mineral, grain, grass and butter aroma, with an earthy sweetness, squash or sweet corn. Mild bitterness against honeyed cereals and bread in the flavor, with a pleasing mineral mustiness coming from the kolsch yeast. Clean body, no residuals. Tangy, lactose suggestions the only negative.

Cybercat (4086) - Georgia, USA - AUG 16, 2015
Pours clear solar yellow with a fairly thick eggshell head. Crisp and malty aroma has more than a hint of pear. Malty flavor is crisp and refreshing, a little fruity, nice after a steamy day. Mouthfeel has average body and not much fizz. Typical, but enjoyable.

TedE (545) - Sydney, AUSTRALIA - JUL 22, 2015
500ml bottle from Beer Cartel. Poured into a 250ml Bitburger glass (as near as I can get to a Kolsch glass). Subtle peppery/hop nose. Pale amber beer with many tiny bubbles, solid white head. Flat mouthfeel, medium body. A little malty, a bit grainy, distant hops then a light lemon finish. Not very complex (as per the style). Designed to be drunk quickly and often, quite delicious actually.

patricks110 (2124) - Alberta, CANADA - JUL 20, 2015
So light and easy going. Pours a sharp straw golden colour with a thick white head. The nose is grainy. Bit of citrus. Bland flavour.

King_Alex_II (672) - SWITZERLAND - JUL 19, 2015
Golden yellow color with little foam. The smell is fresh and malty and nut notes. The taste is flat, little malty, nutty and with a flat and boring aftertaste.

Bottle from VP Storo enjoyed at home
Golden hazy, big white head. Smell of light malts, some yeast fruityness, hay and grassy hops. Light sweet, light malts, quite crisp, hints of fruity elements, nice and dry. Moderate bitter, grassy finish. Very nice kölsch!
