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.

I had this at Global Brew. Pours clear gold with a white head. Taste slightly sweet, light, refreshing. I thought this was very good. I would definitely drink this again. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

My favourite of the Kölsch beers, it has a golden and very clear appearance. This is a fine beer that is best served in the traditional small and slender glass.

Had in a bottle. Good beer to drink with food. Slightly stronger than blue light. Not sweet.

Very smooth and easy drinking beer. Very much a Kolsch style beer. Sweet fruity and low hop characteristics ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Yellow beer with a white head of small bubbles. Crisp and tart with that classic Koelsch style. A beautiful beer style, makes me miss SW Germany.

Good beer. Like nearly all "Kölsch"-beers a litle too thin. Really tasty. The most bitter "Kölsch"- beer avalible. Best in appearance.
