Davhgbrew (945) - Seattle, Washington, USA - MAR 26, 2014
Slight grainy aroma and corn. Pale to gold color. Sips dry and effervescent. Subtle sweetness from malt and moderate bitterness to balance leaning towards a dry bitter finish. Leaves the tongue slightly numb and wanting a second sip. Very refreshing.

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!

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.

Ibrew2or3 (7046) - 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.

Frank (2965) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - OCT 3, 2014
This is a damn decent Koelsch, I must say, very Pilsner-ish. It is golden in color w/ a small head of fine bubbles. It’s nose is all fresh, herbal hops with some doughy maltiness around the edges. This is a very light and drinkable beer. It’s light sweetness brings out some floral notes from the hops and maybe a touch of fruitiness from the yeast. I kind of wish the carbonation was just a little more crisp on this one but it is a really nice beer all around.

bager (2121) - Copenhagen N, DENMARK - OCT 29, 2007
Bottle. Clear and golden in colour with a medium sized offwhite head. Nice and crips with notes of malt, bread, grain and hints of citrusy hops.

Shaney (2427) - 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

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

fidelis83 (1997) - 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.
