50cl can from Galeria Kaufhof Alexanderplatz. Pours clear pale golden with a small white head. Mild malty aroma with hints of fruits and hops. Sweet with mild fruity and malty flavour and a fairly dry finish with a mild and pleasant bitterness. Not the most flavourful beer, but fairly well balanced and very easy to drink. Would imagine this could be nice outside on a hot summer day fresh from tap somewhere in Germany. Probably should try that some time...

0.5 l bottle... Clear color, head okay... Mild aroma, refreshing Kölsch flavor. One of the best Kölsch beers...

Dark amber pour. Very little head. Slightly lacking in carbonation, which is expected for this style. Crisp, hop body, with a slight malt backbone. Tastes like a good fresh pilsner. This is a good beer, and I would enjoy drinking it in the summer.

Tap @ Public Corner Tampere. Pours clear with almost no foam. Some yeast in aroma. Fresh but flat taste.

Bottle courtesy of Kermis. Poured a clear light yellow with a thin white head. The aroma is malty leading to a medium to strong bitter flavour with lots of malt on the palate. Quite drinkable on a hot summer day.

Someone at work makes a trip to Germany a couple of times a year. Everytime he goes he’s asks me what crate of beer I want picked up. Each time the answer is ’Fruh Kolsch’. I’ve tried the Bitburger, Dortmunder, Warsteiner etc. I know the aforementioned are lagers but this is an ale that wants to be a lager and makes a damn good job of it. Clean palate, crisp; has the depth of Dortmunder but without the ’syrupy’ feel. Easily a firm favourite of mine.

BeerViking (4712) - Brentford, Greater London, ENGLAND - FEB 12, 2013
Bottle bought in Germany, light gold with a fast-settling white head, faint aromas of honey, green apple and beeswax, light malty body with touches of golden fruit, honey, bread and grassy hops, lightly peppery hop-bitter finish. Pretty decent - a Kölsch that isn’t pretending to be Pilsner.

Beerbarella (348) - - FEB 11, 2013
330 ml bottle. Slightly spicy Kölsch aroma. Spicy bitter taste, a bit of a bitter palate. For a kölsch it’s alright.

Clear golden colour, small white head. Spicy and hoppy aroma. Sparkling, refreshing taste. Extremely bitter aftertaste. Good for a Kölsch.
