Kölsch is not beer. Period. Most "beers" of the style (Früh, Sion, Gaffel, Reissdorf, etc) are weak, slightly sweetish and eminently forgettable. Päffgen (from the barrel at their brewhouse in Cologne, which is also a decent restaurant) is the best of the lot. A bit more peppery in aroma and taste than the rest, though the typical Kölsch character is still there.
