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.

Pretty decent Kolsch. Yeasty and nutty but bitterness is soft. Lots of taste. Not bad ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Pours a clear golden colour with thick white head which drops away quickly to a thin layer. Aromas of bready malts, some hay/grassiness, delicate honey sweetness and a light fruitiness with a hint of noble hops in the background. Taste is somewhat like a cross between a Pilsner and a Helles with a soft malt centre, juicy bready malts... very crisp and refreshing.....but the hops are much more restrained and there is a slight fruitiness there too. Finish is slightly slightly sweet and dry. Enjoyable beer.

On tap at Kathrin's. Clear gold. Lightly floral and a touch sweet. Lightly grain forward flavor. Crisp light body. Solid enough.

330 ml bottle. Clear golden, medium-sized white head. Corn, hay, paper, metal, some malts, lots of hops extract. Macro-like unpleasant bitterness. Dry metallic finish, fizzy carbonated, light bodied, watery texture. Bad.

Clear, golden, light bodied, gentle aroma and flavors. Kölsch is a seldom drank beer style for me, reminds me of a Pale Lager.

Backlog. delikatne, zbyt wodniste. Posmaki komercyjnego chmielu i lepszego słodu
