Ibrew2or3 (6851) - 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 (2084) - 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 (2411) - 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.

330 ml bottle. Pours clear golden with small white head. Fruity aroma, mild fruity taste with a bit of bitterness. Mild palate, slightly bitter. This is very enjoyable, especially for a kölsch!

Small white head. Clear golden colour. Sweet fruity aroma with hints of bitterness. Uncommonly spicy taste for a kölsch. Bitter palate. Good one!

Shaney (2428) - Köln / Cologne, GERMANY - NOV 20, 2012
#491 Ein sehr helles Kölsch mit nur leicht obergärigem Touch. Sehr weich und malzig im Antrunk. Der Hopfen macht sich erst nach der 2. Kölsch-Stange bemerkbar. Ein unterschätztes Kölsch! Test vom 17.3.2010, Gebinde: Glasflasche Noten: 11,8,12,10,10,10 - 10,10

Average color, short instabile head. Tast. Is too sparkling and unfortunatelly there is a bad untasty aftertaste. Not the best Kölsch...

rand (1280) - SWITZERLAND - OCT 30, 2012
Bottle 33 cl from JUM. Blonde with greenish reflections, short white head. Aromas of hay, a little fruity and grassy. The taste is slight, with lemon, cereals and a little citrus, mostly in finale. Easy to drink, bitterness in the corners, fruity and mildness of wheat.
