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!

rozsoma (976) - Gyõr, HUNGARY - DEC 1, 2016
Kartonpapír száraz kölschöcske, mely egyben zöldséges izeket is rejt. gondolok itt: zellermag, fehérrépaszára, ilyenekra.

PhillyCraft (6274) - Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, USA - NOV 17, 2016
Tap at Brauhaus Schmitz, clear gold with white head. Way too much malt and sweet bread in this kolsch. Nothing bright or summery about it. Other notes of toast, grain, and wheat. Light bodied

Bottle thanks to bursprak (I think?) Pours yellow with a medium frothy white head. Notes of herbs, citrus, biscuits, wet grass, pale malt.

Blueshawk (451) - Bad Bellingen, GERMANY - OCT 3, 2016
- hellgelbe Farbe mit fast keiner Schaumbildung - geringe Aromen nach Citrus, süßlichem Malz und etwas Hopfen - passende Carbonisierung - geschmacklich ist das Bier eine eine einzige Wasserbrühe mit etwas Malz und Hopfengeschmack - der Abgang ist dann noch etwas kräuterig und aus war’s Fazit: Man muss wohl damit aufgewachsen sein

Avetixz (103) - GERMANY - OCT 1, 2016
Hoppy aroma, herbal, grassy, apple and grains. Pours very clean looking, light golden liquid with a small soapy head and lots of bubbles. Medium bitterness and medium-light sweetness. Grassy, spicy hop flavour, light grainy, biscuity malt notes, very clean. Light body with a slick palate, average carbonation, high drinkability.

degbert (1722) - Austin, Texas, USA - SEP 27, 2016
Bottle. Pours as a picture-book beer; perfect white medium-grained head, perfect gold coloration, gorgeous carbonation. Looks like concept art for a beer rather than a beer itself. Nose is apple, flaked grain, dust, earth, dried marjoram, lemon, and barley candy. Sweet and lemony up front, with a slightly minty edge; crisp biscuity malt afterwards, with a toasted cereal overtone. Good malt; it stays right where it needs to be. Excellent effervescence and a clean, herbal finish. Damn good beer.

bulldogops (2320) - Edmonton, Alberta, CANADA - SEP 23, 2016
Rating #2218 - 2015.12.04 - Sample @7Degrees Beer School. Pours a clear straw yellow with a bubbly white cap. Medium carbonation, low alcohol warmth. Mouthfeel is crisp, clean, very light. Light spiciness from hops on palate. Refreshing.

Decent beer. Light color with foamy head. Malt followed by grain after taste. Good for a warm afternoon.
