fidelis83 (1901) - Clinton, Iowa, USA - APR 30, 2013
Slightly hazy yellow-gold pour with a 1 finger, creamy, bright white head. Aroma of cereal, bread, fruity esters, hints of bubblegum and banana, floral and sweet grassy hops. Flavor is sweet cereal, toast, sweet tree fruit right away, then some light bubblegum, hints of sweet corn, nice floral notes and a lightly nutty, sweet, cereal and floral finish with some lingering fruit and bubblegum. Light body, with a creamy entry, moderate to strong and pleasantly sharp carbonation and fairly neutral finish. Really tasty, refreshing and fairly complex.

Helibrewer (18) - Santa Rosa, California, USA - MAR 23, 2013
Very true to style. Pale yellow-orange color. Thin white head. Noble hops on the nose, fruity, spicey flavor up front. Hops and malt are well balanced.

crossovert (6934) - Illinois, USA - MAR 8, 2013
500ml bottle. Best before Jun 2013. It pours a clearish gold with a limp soapy white head. Smell is light grain, light yeast, slight fruitness. Flavor is mild, more hoppy than the normal perhaps but mostly grain, soft floral character. Its not terrible.

Idiosynkrasie (3588) - Bielefeld, GERMANY - MAR 7, 2013
330ml bottle. Clear golden colour with average, frothy, half-way lasting, minimally lacing, white head. Strawy and grainy aroma. Taste is slightly grainy, minimally sweet pale malty, bitter hoppy overtones with a touch of hay and grass.

Draft at uber. Pours a crystal clear pale gold with a loose white head. Nutty, corn toasty nose. Creamy light body with bright fizzy carb. Corn, nuts, and toast on the mid palate. Mild finish.

Ibrew2or3 (6767) - Tempe, Arizona, USA - MAR 1, 2013
The 50cl bottle pours with a clear pale gold color and supporting a nearly bright white head of foam. The aroma offers up some nice smelling bitter floral like hops some sweet breadiness and malts as well as a touch of lime like citrus. The taste delivers a pleasing hoppy bite to start and stays well ahead of the under current of malt sweetness. The bitter hops are sort of floral and have just a dash of earthy grapefruit peel. The sweetness has sugar malts mixing with a mild sweet malty breadiness followed by a brief moment or two of pear to sweet green apple esteriness. It ends with a nice lingering hop bite that washes away any sort of sweetness that has built up. Overall not all of the flavor components are what I find stellar in a Kolsch but the balance and execution I do enjoy. I’d do this one again.

jookos (1928) - FINLAND - JAN 21, 2013
Bottle. Paleish, clear. Pale malts on nose, a bit of green hops. Medium-light body, doesn’t feel too skinny. German ale yeast, golden malts, light fruityness. Quite a lot of the yeast flavour actually, gives it a craft beer- vibe. Quite good.

RexTalionis (2337) - FINLAND - JAN 18, 2013
Bottle 50 cl. Pours clear golden in color with a small fast disappearing whitish head. Buttery notes, sweet fruityness and faint hints of hay in aroma. The taste is slightly on the sweet side with some light grassy hop bitterness. Sweet fruity with a nice light bitter finish makes this an really enjoyable kölsch. Good stuff.
