reebtogi (6022) - Edmonton, Alberta, CANADA - JUN 14, 2015
500ml bottle pours a hazy yellow gold color with a finger of white head that retains well but only leaves a few spots of lacing on the glass. Aroma is grassy and grainy with some light fruits. Taste is a grassy and spicy hop bitterness with a light fruity and malty sweetness. Light bodied with decent carbonation. Overall, has a little more taste and body than a typical kolsch. Nice.

King_Alex_II (1228) - SWITZERLAND - APR 11, 2015
The color is dirty cloudy yellow with solid foam layer. The smell has some malty cereals. Taste is bitter in the finish and has a slight sweetish cereals-cookie note. Quite refreshing though. Slightly different than other kölschs, but I like it more.

hopwine (670) - brooklynzzzzz, New York, USA - APR 8, 2015
Woody, herbal, sweet grain nose. Flavor is same plus lemon marmalade, spicy hops on the finish, mild bitterness, light butter feelz. Interesting, slightly sloppy take on kolsch.

high_on_hops (809) - Burlingame, California, USA - APR 4, 2015
On tap. Pours a cloudy old with a white head and some lacing. The aroma and taste are both biscuit and malt, with a mostly dry finish and some slight spiciness over a light body. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

UPDATED: JAN 9, 2016 Hazy yellow color with no head. Aroma of caramel, yeasts, fruity, buttery. Taste id similar. Finish has quite some bitter hops. Smooth and refreshing. Not bad. Update: From the tap at the brewpub. Very hazy orange-yellow color with white head. Aroma is citrus fruity, yeasty. Taste is light, citrus fruity, with a bready body. Bitter finish. Nice!

nuplastikk (5961) - Madison, Wisconsin, USA - MAR 8, 2015
Bottle as Freigeist. Unfiltered grey-orange body. Semi-buttery, reminds me of US Kolsch. Bright, but the butter tones are unacceptable to me. Doesn’t really capture the style. Neutered hospital Kolsch. The lack of filtration gives it some body. Overall not that impressive of an offering.
