SamGamgee (2452) - down the whirlpool, California, USA - AUG 19, 2011
Draught at Kreuzberg CA. Clear golden with a fine white head. Metallic and slightly papery aroma with underlying sweet, bready pils malt. Light in body and softly carbonated. Lightly hopped and moderately sweet with simple pils malt flavors and a clean, relatively dry finish. Lightly fruity but pretty clean. A relatively inoffensive and easy drinkin koelsch suffering from some wear, though I’m not sure where the metallic aroma is coming from. These beers are so sad when we get them over here, but I keep trying new ones to see if one can buck the norm. Not this guy, though it’s still drinkable. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

nickd717 (3460) - San Francisco, California, USA - JUL 1, 2011
Draft at Gourmet Haus Staudt. Pale yellow-golden in color with a small white head. Rather faint aroma, grassy with grains and pale malt. The flavor is a bit more interesting, with a decent grassy hop presence and pale malt. Not too much to it though. Light in body with good crispness and drinkability, but that’s about all it has. Overall a pretty run-of-the-mill Kolsch.

Kristall-König (2187) - Oldenburg, GERMANY - JUL 1, 2011
Sehr blasses Auftreten mit reichlich co2. Im Geruch hopfig-herb. Geschmacklich feinherb mit dezenter Malznote im Mittelteil, die sich im Abgang noch steigert. Dankbares Kölsch aus dem oberen Mittelfeld.Test vom 12.5.2007, Gebinde: Glasflasche

Koelschtrinker (9999) - Köln (Cologne), GERMANY - MAY 4, 2011
Den Antrunk und auch den Mittelteil kann man einfach unr als "kölschtypisch" beschreiben, wie ein ganz normales durchschnittskölsch, mild und sehr süffig. Der Nachgeschmack ist das, was das Zunft von anderen Kölschen unterscheidet. Leider nicht im positiven, er wirkt unstimmig und dumpf. Test vom 25.11.2005, Gebinde: Fass Noten: 11,9,12,6,-,9

rosenbergh (6493) - Helsinki, FINLAND - APR 1, 2011
500 ml bottle. BB Feb 11. From bierzwerg.de.
Clear pale golden colour with tiny white head. Fruity mildly bitter hoppy aroma with some sugary and malty notes. Flavour is malt, mild fruity notes and mild bitterness. Not bad.

presario (4580) - Stampede City, Alberta, CANADA - MAR 5, 2011
Bottle. Crisp gold with small soft white head. Grain aroma. Rough and heavy handed. Aggressive hops. Smooths out a bit as you drink but comes off clumsy.

bhensonb (10699) - Woodland, California, USA - JAN 14, 2011
Bottle from Bottleworks. Pours pale gold with a foamy 3 finger white head. Light fruity aroma - hint of citrus too. Lightly bready, lightly fruity, citrus seems absent. There’s a clean aspect to this. It’s just lightly bitter. After an NA it’s tasting pretty good. Refreshing.

KnutAlbert (6013) - Oslo, NORWAY - JAN 11, 2011
On tap in Berlin (Wilhelmstrasse). Fruity, quite refreshing, but this is a style it is hard to get exited about.

Grima (2070) - Saarburg, Rhineland-Palatinate, GERMANY - DEC 21, 2010
500ml bottle! The beer in glass is light yellow and pearly with a lot of CO2. Medium fine and durable flat head.Smells surprisingly hoppy fresh. Starts bitterhoppy, very bitter for a Kölsch. The hops come through well, and in the aftertaste, a light sweet hoppy flavor comes through. The further course is a bit milder, there are good, hoppy aromas. Outstanding good Kölsch, I am surprised!

Bottle. Golden, very small and fully diminishing head. Light malty and sweetish aroma, some caramel and fruitiness. Body is light to medium, malty and sweetish flavor, some caramel, faint hoppyness. Finish is short, malty with some sweetness. Light bodied and sweetish kölsch.
