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.

Grumpelmies (171) - North Rhine-Westphalia, GERMANY - NOV 6, 2016
Bottle. Dark yellow. Aroma and taste are earthy, malty grainy and rather dull. Hops are very subdued. High carbonation. A mediocre Kölsch that I only drink when there are no other options.

Antzrhere (140) - Blackpool, Lancashire, ENGLAND - OCT 26, 2016
Pours yellow, white head. Faint aroma of yeast esters and spicey hops. Crisp taste with bread and tangy hop after taste. Ok, but not great

villevav (458) - FINLAND - OCT 16, 2016
[2010-05-11] Vaalean kultainen ja kirkas. Kuiva ja humaloitu. Erittäin miellytttävä janojuoma.

BarleyBrain (5) - blackpool, Lancashire, ENGLAND - OCT 11, 2016 does not count
For the style this beer is great, clean taste and bitter. Wouldn’t go out of my way to buy though

Blueshawk (465) - Bad Bellingen, GERMANY - OCT 3, 2016
- blassgelbe Farbe mit geringer Schaumbildung - minimale Aromen nach Getreide, Malz und Zitrone - minimale Carbonisierung - im Antrunk ist eine schemenhaft erkennbare Malznote vorhanden, was alles etwas erträglich gestaltet - der Körper ist trotzdem völlig wässrig - der Malztouch wird im Abgang dann auch noch herb-süß pappig Fazit: Man muss wohl damit aufgewachsen sein

GregClow (3315) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - OCT 2, 2016
Can from the LCBO. Clear, bright yellow-gold with a snow white head. Fresh and clean aroma of bread, cut grass, a touch of honey, and classic noble hops. Flavour follows, with light malt and honey sweetness to start, and lively hops coming on quickly for a crisp and moderately bitter finish. I’ve had this in bottles several times before, and it came across as a fairly generic and limp lager, but from a fairly fresh can, it’s a standard bearer for its style.

SinH4 (4046) - Garching b. München, GERMANY - SEP 30, 2016
Bottle (no idea why I’ve never rated it). Clear golden, white head. Aroma is sweet malts, some noble hops. Taste is more sweet malts, some cardboard. Needs to be revisited fresh.

Vaiz (4460) - Den Haag, NETHERLANDS - SEP 29, 2016
Tap in Berlin. Clear golden pour. Aroma of grainy malts, straw and some sugars. Flavor is nicely bitter, a hint of funk and grainy. Quite decent.

SeniorZozo (1462) - Budapest, HUNGARY - SEP 20, 2016
At Budapest Green Sheep Bar. Decent, well balanced, low carbonation, small finish. Went well with kebab dish.
