Aroma is light fruity.
Poured light straw with nice head and good lacing.
Medium bitterness is followed by a subdued but refreshing crisp hop finish.
Really rather nice.

Tap @ Hallertau. Hazy light gold pour with a short white head leaving moderate lace. Fruity, vaguely sweet nose.Medium body with fine, moderate (natural) carbonation. Berries, nuts, biscuit, clean. Short finish is nicely balanced. Maybe a touch of sugar in the middle and finish, but very nice overall. Eminently sessionable, but you’ll have a hard time resisting the other brews in their lineup!

In one word: Clean. Two words: Clean and light. I could go on. Crisp. In a way, this beer occupies the same bland/light/refreshing ground as countless other wretched macro lagers, yet without the industrial adjunct misery. Clinical in its execution, this beer goes down like water, but in a good way. Each mouthful left me wanting another. Slight hop presence sitting on a slightly fruity then nutty malt. lightly carbonated and good-looking. One of the most sessionable beers I’ve tasted.

Light blond, thin head, slightly spicy hop w mellow, clean pale malt. Good malt character, dry herbal hop, a little fresh grain. Travlr (24665) - Charlotte, North Carolina, USA - AUG 20, 2013
Draft at the source. Clear yellow, white edge head. Aroma of freshly mowed wet grass and meadow flowers. Taste is floral and bitter. Not bad.

1st time I’ve tried a kolsch this poured pale yellow with a fine fluffy head which slowly faded smells of fruit & malt the taste is carbonated crisp tropically fruity sweet yeasty malt & bitter hoppy in the background agree with others below this is well blended & very clean Jimthechap (2064) - Christchurch, NEW ZEALAND - SEP 6, 2012
Very pale colour with a persistent bead of carbonation and the remnants of a white head. It appears as if you shouldn’t expect too much but the aroma suggests otherwise. Lots of fragrant passionfruit and hibiscus, papaya and lychee. Just tropical fruit all over. There’s all that in the taste along with fresh, light golden malts and a lovely sherbety tingle that goes on all over the tongue. It starts to dry on the palate and your enduring impression is "I want it to be hot outside, I want it to be bright and I want a stonking great stein of this stuff." I also wouldn’t mind a lusty, busty moral-free blonde German girl in a bikini to enjoy it with, but then you can’t have everything can you? Leonardus (59) - Rolleston, NEW ZEALAND - DEC 23, 2014
Um ja, I’d also go the moral free lusty busty blonde German girl in a bikini Jimthechap refers to, from no doubt ’mammaries’ from one of his many excursions into the verboten hinterlands of beer swilling Bavaria of old. Oh, to live it, swilling a stein of this would not be too bad, ja gut, but well, what is it exactly, a specialty beer based on a German bier brewed in Koln as they the brewers claim? (lovely place Koln by the way, there in 1982). Yes, it is straw coloured, and it reeks of hops, it is dry, like a real good lager should be actually, and, it works very well in its present state. So, a good brew, and with a story, thanks to Jimthechap, to boot. TheGrandMaster (2335) - Auckland, NEW ZEALAND - JAN 20, 2008
UPDATED: MAY 10, 2009 Draught at the brew pub, a slight haze to the golden colour with a white bubbly head. A swet citrus fruit hop aroma. A clean palate, with flowery and citrus fruit flavours. The finish is crisp and dry. Jukkabro (3484) - Tampere, FINLAND - JAN 10, 2012
Yellow colored with hazy appearance, little white head. Extremely rich aroma with peach, even blueberry note, grassy flowers. Thin to medium bodied, little bit of watery palate. Flavor is more fruity in start, aftertaste turns to strongly peachy-flowery. Biting end. Refreshing one.
