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.

0,33 bottle Enjoyed at home. Bought at systembolaget. Beer is crisp and has a good amount of spicy noble hops and a balanced finish. Just what you’d expect really.

mikeyo1 (765) - Linköping, SWEDEN - JUL 20, 2016
Bottle @ home. Pours a crystal clear yelloq liquid with a medium white head that quickly dissipates. Grainy aroma with bread, herbs and some grass. Taste is small bodied with aberage carbonation. Taste is dry with grains, bread, herbs. Short duration then a crisp, slightly metallic and salty(!) finish with a low balancing bitterness. Lingering grassy notes and some fruit esters.

Dåligt med doft. Hittar inte direkt vad det är för smaker, gräs/jordaktig ton. Väldigt kort i smaken.

ManVsBeer (9259) - Hebden Bridge, West Yorkshire, ENGLAND - JUL 14, 2016
Bottle from D Byrne & Co, Clitheroe. Paler golden coloured with an extremely thin head and a small carbonation. Has a light aroma with a lager character, some hops. Feels ordinary but have never been a fan of Kolsch and this one doesn’t change my mind.

The beer is a clear pale yellow when you pour it. The foam is white and comes up pretty fast. The foam have large bubbles and disappear leisurely. The foam leaves little trace in the glass. The aroma is a little malt itself. You will find some herbs, citrus and some honey sweetness. But the public feels a little light in the scents. The flavor is a little bit fruity, and little watering. Some flavor of malt, honey, herbs and some citrus. Light body. Medium-high carbonation who indulge in a while. Slightly dry, watering and earthy.
