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.

ryanscourt (1427) - Latrobe, Pennsylvania, USA - JAN 29, 2013
Yellow and clear. Corn aroma. Grassy with nice medium smooth body. Almost a creamy texture. enough in the beer to be satisfied. Nice fizzy carbonation with little bit of earthy dryness at the end. A beer that everyone can take something from.

kramer (6576) - Sunbury, Pennsylvania, USA - FEB 20, 2017
Bottle. Pours a clear light gold body with a nice one inch frothy white head. The nose is mostly pale malt with a light hint of noble hops and a slight metallic note. The flavor is pretty similar, a little on the sweeter side with a slight cereal grain note on the finish. Very light bitterness, and light bready maltiness. Light bodied with soft fizzy carbonation. Decent beer, better than many American attempts at the style.

mikske79 (1640) - Puerto Plata, DOMINICAN REPUBLIC - FEB 15, 2017
Veel schuim, lichte blonde kleur. Geur van een typische pils. De smaak valt mee, niet veel speciaals.

Foerdifuxx (331) - Franconia, GERMANY - JAN 27, 2017
Clear golden beer with a small, shortlasting, white head. Aromas of fug, faint hops, pale malt, grain, straw. Taste is waterish, some malts and some spicy hops, white pepper in finish. Oily texture, average carbonation, light body. Crisp but boring.

Clean golden color with barely white head. Aroma is malty and grainy, spicy and herbal hops are also present. Taste follows the nose, bread, grain, sweet malts, honey and slightly citrus.

For a kolsh, this is really good. I mean, on the level of an American beer style, but has more malts and a nicer style. tap.
