Bright and clear with a course white head, the aroma is sweet malt and floral hops. The flavour is very clean and leans to malt with a light honey sweetness, followed by a mild bitterness without a hint of harshness. Excellent drinkability!

15-06-17 // draft at Lommerzheim, Cologne. Clear golden, small white head. Perfect Kölsch, but still this still isnt very interesting. It is a very smooth and easy to drink beer, mild grains and straw. Rated according to the style.

Draft at the Brauhaus. Had this loads of times but somehow didn’t rate it. Clear golden with a white head. Aroma of yeast, light fruits, grains, dough and soft light malt with light notes of caramel coming out in the end. Flavour is light sweet and bitter. Light bodied with light carbonation. So smooth, and a beautiful session beer that can keep me happy without the need for constant ticking. Awesome!

several 0.2 l draught @ Bierhaus am Rhein, Cologne. Golden, clear etc. the usual. Well, this is nice and smooth, very smooth, very easy to drink. Not very interesting though. Too balanced for me.

Great Kölsch! Hands down this is the best brewery in all of Cologne! The beer is crisp and clean. Very session-able!

kapusil (1429) - Budapest, HUNGARY - APR 24, 2017
On tap at the brewpub. Clear golden body with a white head. Aroma of grains and bread with a minimal sulfur. Taste of bread, grains, yeast and a tiny bit of floral hops. Quite watery. Not the best kölsch in Köln for me.

Cristobal37 (1140) - Budapest, HUNGARY - APR 24, 2017
On tap at Paffgen brauhaus, Koln. Stinky lager aroma. Light beer with minimal taste. Finish is cellar and kinda skunky. Let down considering this is the highest rated kolsch. There’s better in the city.

DrNosha (2333) - Württemberg, Germany, GERMANY - JAN 21, 2017
Vom Fass im Brauhaus. Dunkelgelbes klares Bier, weisser fester Schaum. Getreidig frischer Duft. Antrunk Gras, etwas Malz. Süffig und lecker.

kajser27 (1803) - Zagreb, CROATIA - DEC 21, 2016
Clear, golden colored, medium- white head. Aroma is of malt, some grain, some hoppy grassy notes. Taste is light sweet malt, grain, bit fruits, some herbal notes with light+ bitterness, dry finish. Light bodied, average carbonation, watery. Pretty clean and refreshing, nothing too exciting, but hey, it is a Kolsch... and the best I tried so far. (on tap, at the Brauerei)

Ritzn (1380) - GERMANY - OCT 10, 2016
From wood barrel at Gaststätte Lommerzheim. Clear golden with big white head. Aroma is grassy crispy hops. A malty apple pie as well. Taste is fresh citric sourness and a little artificial apple sweetness. Mouthfeel is ginger ale and the finish is medium with more ginger ale. Too much artificial apple. Good though.

FinnIckler (479) - GERMANY - OCT 8, 2016
UPDATED: OCT 8, 2016 Tap at lommerzheim . pours golden with huge head. Nose is tart, bread. Palate is a bit watery, mouthfeel is like a ginger ale. Finish is slightly sweet. Overall it feels like a sweeter Pilsener. Not bad though
