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.

Pale gold color with a thin white head and plenty of bubbles. Light and crisp with grassy notes make this a very enjoyable kolsch. Reminds me of GI Summertime.

Вот уж не думал, что кёльш может быть крутым, но вот пожалуйста. Мощный солодовый слегка сладковатый вкус.

D�couverte par Mickael. Bi�re dor�e tr�s belle mousse. Nez fleurie. Bouche douce et pas trop am�re. Premi�re K�lsch pour moi! Pas mal.

Pale golden color medium white head. Smelly aroma. Taste malt, butter, smooth body, fruity notes little bitterness. Sour aftertaste. My first kölsch, intresting beer.

From draft flight at Biermarkt USA on May 20, 2017. Gold hue with good clarity, standard kolsch nose that’s a little light, standard crisp taste. Not the most distinctive kolsch you’ll find but not bad.

Lager with a light aroma of herbs and a light taste of fruit, slightly bitter and like spices. Everything is very light and well balanced. There is not that medical aspect like in cheap industrial lagers.

Mooi helder goudgeel bier, fijne witte parelende schuimkraag. Bij dit bier gaat het niet om aroma en afdronk (wat die is er niet). Maar qua (pils)bier is dit toch wel voortreffelijk hoor. Zeer verfrissend, weinig carbonatie, zeer goed doordrinkbaar. Op terras in de zon de ultieme dorstlesser.
