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.

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.

katrinaez (1625) - norristown, Pennsylvania, USA - DEC 11, 2016
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.

Michael27 (1301) - Berlin, GERMANY - NOV 15, 2016
UPDATED: NOV 15, 2016 Frisch vom Hahn im "Em Höttche" in Bonn. Ein Kölsch halt, das seinen industriellen Hintergrund nicht verbergen kann.

Ritzn (764) - Bavaria, GERMANY - NOV 14, 2016
Clear golden with almost no head. Aroma is wheat, some fruity like malts (no real fruit aroma though), noble hops and something unpleasant that resembles cigarette smoke. Taste is somehow artificial malty sweetness, with lots of slightly aggressive sourness and some bitter bitterness. Easy to drink, medium finish. Meh...

adamnowek (2116) - Brussels, BELGIUM - NOV 10, 2016
Wheaty aroma with a bit of wet grass. Taste is moderately spicy with a subtle sourness. Nothing special but it does the trick for a platform beer at Köln Hbf.

Grumpelmies (162) - North Rhine-Westphalia, GERMANY - NOV 6, 2016
Bottle. Dark yellow. Aroma and taste are earthy, malty grainy and rather dull. Hops are very subdued. High carbonation. A mediocre Kölsch that I only drink when there are no other options.

Antzrhere (127) - Blackpool, Lancashire, ENGLAND - OCT 26, 2016
Pours yellow, white head. Faint aroma of yeast esters and spicey hops. Crisp taste with bread and tangy hop after taste. Ok, but not great

villevav (456) - FINLAND - OCT 16, 2016
[2010-05-11] Vaalean kultainen ja kirkas. Kuiva ja humaloitu. Erittäin miellytttävä janojuoma.
