Pours a clear bright golden with a clingy-lacing froth of white head. Has a lightly aromatic nose with some floral noble hops and light pale malty sweetness. Starts with good effervescence and average body with some mild sweetness and crisp grassy hop bitterness before a drier clean finish. True to style and very drinkable.

le kolsch sono birre complicate da capire.. al primo assaggio sembra di bere normali lager ma con maggiore attenzione (e maggiori assaggi) emerge il carattere particolare di queste birre.. non potranno mai essere paragonate a birre di alto range secondo il mio parere ma meritano di stare nel limbo fra birre di bassa classe e le birre di qualità..aroma fruttato,molto maltoso non dovuto quindi ai lieviti..palato standard e gusto maltato fruttato lievemente amaro nel finale!

RichTheVillan (8151) - Birmingham, West Midlands, ENGLAND - MAR 27, 2013
Bottle from Cotteridge Wines; straw yellow pour with substantial white head, biscuit malt aroma, bready malt taste, hay quite crisp and refreshing would go down well chilled on a summers day.

obguthr (6593) - Staunton, Virginia, USA - MAR 20, 2013
Moderately strong hay nose, a bit corny. Crystal clear yellow, medium vanishing head. Starts out a little slow, actually similar to American macro lagers. A surgence of clean hay hits at midpalate. Finishes clean. No fusel alcohol, no fruity esters, not a lot going on. Clean, but the weakest true German Kolsch I’ve had.

visionthing (5496) - Tallinn, ESTONIA - MAR 11, 2013
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...

canary dog (779) - Rutland, Vermont, USA - MAR 2, 2013
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.

zomba (212) - Nokia, FINLAND - FEB 28, 2013
Tap @ Public Corner Tampere. Pours clear with almost no foam. Some yeast in aroma. Fresh but flat taste.

jmgreenuk (9867) - Kuala Lumpur, MALAYSIA - FEB 18, 2013
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.
