Disclaimer: I was brought up on Altbier, so Kölsch was always out of scope by definition. I tried my very best by sampling a fair number of Kölsch, but I cannot get it. Among the Kölsch I tried, Küppers appears to me to be among the average. Zlotta (3731) - Hagen / Düsseldorf, GERMANY - AUG 27, 2017
Sampled from 0.5 l bottle from local ’trinkgut’, best before April 2018. Clear, golden yellow with a thin, frothy, almost stable, white head. Sweetish, slightly grassy-spicy and a little floral aroma of grains and some straw. Slightly sweetish, moderately bitter, a bit grassy-spicy and a bit floral taste of grains and some straw with very faint hints of honey, followed by a short, quite bitter, moderately grassy-spicy finish. Almost medium-bodied, slightly effervescent mouthfeel, soft carbonation. Fairly bland, but inoffensive and very quaffable. Cristobal37 (1200) - Budapest, HUNGARY - APR 26, 2017
Bottle from Schneider getranke, Koln. Clear pale beer with little to no head. Sweet cereal with a nip of hops on the nose. Light easy kolsch, mostly malty. Has a bad aftertaste that reminds me of Bud Light, metal and funky sweetness. Not a great one. kapusil (1476) - Budapest, HUNGARY - APR 26, 2017
0.5l bottle shared with Cristobal37. Clear golden body with a thin white head. Aroma of bread, grains and hay. Taste of bread, sweet grains and some pears. The body is quite light the carnonation is medium. Quite restrained (especially the aroma), but nothing bad about it.

Bottle. Crisp and sweet with notes of grass and metal. Well balanced and drinkable. aleigator (945) - GERMANY - JUL 16, 2016
Pours a bright yellow color with a medium sized, froth head.
Has a refreshing herbal hop character with some underlying straw and sweetened grain to it.
Offers a perfect nuanced, lively carbonation with a light body to it, which drinks darn easy with a nice hop crispness atop of its white bread malts defined flavors.
Strawy, malty beginning with toffee and leafy hops defining the taste, refined by the beers higher, yet soft carbonation. Finishes sweeter, while providing a nice and light late hoppiness.
Nice Kölsch, way more flavorful than its industrial brewed cousins. ippopotamo36 (2496) - Rome, ITALY - APR 30, 2016
