COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
The laws protecting the brewing of kolsch are as strict as the German Purity Law of 1516. Kolsch beer can only be brewed within the city of Cologne. As the best-known kolsch brewery, Gaffel’s flavor is derived from an ale yeast that is "lagered" (or aged) in cold cellars. Gaffel is pale, faintly fruity with a crisp, hop finish. Enjoy as an aperitif or digestif.

Köpt på Bierhaus, Stockholm. En rätt överskattad öl i mina ögon. Hade väntat mig iaf lite mer smaker även om den känns fräsch. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

spiffero (52) - Camelford, Cornwall, ENGLAND - JAN 26, 2018
Pours a medium gold, with a slightly overclean smell. Quite intensely and tightly fizzed, but then swells to a smooth mouthfeel. It develops a honeyed malty taste in the mouth, but this becomes somewhat flattened out by a grim undertaste of dull metal, such as you get in a lot of everyday lagers. I drank this in comparison with Früh Kölsch, and, unsurprisingly, there is not much between them. But I just prefer the Früh, with its broader, more sensuous mouthfeel. On the other hand, I'd prefer to drink either of these Cologne top-fermented gold beers than most lagers, because of the characteristic tones of malt and honey they possess.

Benters (155) - Leicestershire, ENGLAND - JAN 20, 2018
Pours a clear golden colour with thick white head which drops away quickly to a thin layer. Aromas of bready malts, some hay/grassiness, delicate honey sweetness and a light fruitiness with a hint of noble hops in the background. Taste is somewhat like a cross between a Pilsner and a Helles with a soft malt centre, juicy bready malts... very crisp and refreshing.....but the hops are much more restrained and there is a slight fruitiness there too. Finish is slightly slightly sweet and dry. Enjoyable beer.

On tap at Kathrin's. Clear gold. Lightly floral and a touch sweet. Lightly grain forward flavor. Crisp light body. Solid enough.

330 ml bottle. Clear golden, medium-sized white head. Corn, hay, paper, metal, some malts, lots of hops extract. Macro-like unpleasant bitterness. Dry metallic finish, fizzy carbonated, light bodied, watery texture. Bad.
