This is a very good imitation of the original Gaffel Kölsch. Here in South Florida, this has become my favorite beer. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Very light caramel color. Smells of hay and green apple (very slight though). Very light taste. An easy, drinkable lager. Smooth finish.

2015 BJCP Category: 5B Kölsch

AROMA: Lightly sweet clean grainy malt aroma with a touch of honey and wheat. A slight fruit aroma is present as well. Some spicy hops in the background. Clean fermentation. 10/12

APPEARANCE: Maize yellow/golden hue; mostly clear with effervescence always visible. Small white foam never completely dissipates. 2/3

FLAVOR: Lovely pale malt sweetness makes up the majority of the palate. A clean grainy maltiness akin to cereal or wheat bread. There is background fruity note that complements the malt. A subtle spicy hop bite at the apex. Aftertaste is akin to honey, but eventually fades cleanly. 18/20

MOUTHFEEL: Medium-light body; moderate carbonation. Crisp, clean and refreshing. Very sessionable at 5% ABV. 5/5

OVERALL IMPRESSION: JDub’s got this absolutely to spec, which is rare and impressive. I wish more drinkers appreciated this style. 9/10

Can from Publix in Fort Myers Beach. Wheat, lemon zest and some kinda spice. Fruit and malt flavor that’s growing on me as I sip. Not bad compared to the Cologne kolschs I’ve had. More metallic.

Can. Pours a hazy golden copper color with an ephemeral beige head. Wheaty and grainy nose . Taste is bready and full of lingering awful wheat. Finish is full of grain and wheat...rather flat and without taste. Was not expecting very much so no real surprises . Quaff Score 4 / 10

Ratman197 (15452) - Arvada, Colorado, USA - DEC 17, 2016
On tap at JDub’s poured a clear yellow with a small lingering white head. Aromas of bread, earthiness and light citrus. Palate was light bodied and smooth with a dry finish. Flavors of bread, fruitiness and light citrus with a smooth dry lingering fruity finish.
