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.

On tap in Cologne. Less malty and slightly more bitter than other kölsch beers. Not bad, but nothing amazing.

FunkyF (1171) - Örebro, SWEDEN - SEP 10, 2016
Flaska från SB. Ljust gul med smutsvitt skum. Lätt maltig doft med inslag av gräs. Dov i smaken med tydlig beska och inte mycket mer.

Angenehm zu trinken, ein typisches Kölsch ohne besondere Eigenschaften, ganz nett

3.5
YantarCoast (1335) - Moscow, RUSSIA - AUG 26, 2016
500ml bottle from Beeratoria in Moscow. Pours clear gold with a bright white head. Aroma is herbal hops, malt. Taste is malty and grassy. Very similar to a pilsner, but good all the same.

Schön getreidiger Geruch, hellgoldene Farbe. Leichte Bitterkeit. Weicher aber würziger Geschmack.

2.7
60minuteman (1680) - West Chester, Pennsylvania, USA - AUG 19, 2016
On tap at Newark Airport. Crisp pale flavour. Lemon, malt, corn, water, wheat, bread flavour and aroma. Bitter and sweet with lemon rind and metal. Pretty decent minus the metal.

3.2
AleRider78 (1046) - Winchester, Ontario, CANADA - AUG 14, 2016
500ml can from LCBO. Pours an insane amount of foamy bubbly white head and has a clear straw coloured appearance. Some thick sticky lacing remains. Aromas of grains and wheats, light grassy hops. Flavours are mostly light toasted malts and a bit of breads as well. Some sweet notes and what seems like a buttery finish. A little bit of corn in there also, but fairly subtle and not overwhelming. Lively carbonation. Average retention.
