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 (6754) - 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.

Pale golden with white head. Sour, hop, grain aroma. Citrus, and grain / biscuit flavor notes. Decent balance with mild bitter finish.

kmeves (1098) - Mount Pleasant, Wisconsin, USA - SEP 10, 2008
Pours a light straw colored body with a large white head. Aroma is mildly sweet with grainy, grassy and a weird faint metallic smell. Flavor is grassy, grains, citrus and very light spice. Light bodied, thin texture.

17thfloor (2443) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - SEP 10, 2008
Pours a clear light golden with no bubbles and a large sudsy airy white head. Huge grassy aroma, I love that, some light maltiness & bread/fruit. Very light flavor with a light watery body that feels ever so slightly heavy in the mouth, light crisp carbonation. A very easy drinking beer that isn’t completely boring for how light it is. Faint breadiness, a bit of sweet malt and sour grassiness. A bit cookie like. A nice dry kolsch, the sweet ones are really annoying.

ogivlado (7706) - Zagreb, CROATIA - SEP 3, 2008
Canned(500ml). -from gas station nead Köln.
Pale golden coloured, medium sized white head, low carbonation. Slight malty, hoppy and faint fruity taste with flowery mild hoppy finish. Pleasant and refreshing but Küppers is better.

Skinnyviking (9490) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - SEP 3, 2008
Bottle. High creamy and lasting white head. Clear yellow body. Dinstinct, simple but good barley malt aroma. Thin, weak, sweet barley malt flavor with low carbonation, little hops bitterness and a short sweet aftertaste.

buzzoven (376) - JAPAN - AUG 22, 2008
On draught @ The Raleigh Times. Not my favorite style but I wanted something on tap and the only other thing they had at the time was witbier or PBR. Clear golden yellow in the glass. Muted nose. Flavour was grassy, watery and finished with a pleasant dry crispness. Like I said, not my favorite style, but hit the spot, nonetheless.
