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.

KnutAlbert (6732) - Oslo, NORWAY - SEP 23, 2008
Bottle in Copenhagen. I’ve had this on tap in Cologne, but that was decades ago. Mild spiciness, on the sweet side. As with many beers of this style, it comes out a bit bland and not as refreshing as a German pilsener. Some more carboantion would have helped this along IMHO.
