3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
On tap at the Brauerei Paffgen, Koeln.
As crisp as you can get and still have the charecteristic diacetyl of a true Kolsch. A spicy boquet a slightly sharp tongue.
A personal favorite along with Muhlen. Best enjoyed at night, in the garden.
Glass, golden beer, small head. Aroma is malt, hops. Taste is the same, some fruit. Bitter afterflavour, with some sweetness. subtle but long aftertaste. tonyferrari (33) - North Rhine-Westphalia, GERMANY - AUG 11, 2017
Served on tap. Very clear straw colour. Thick fluffy long-lasting white foam. Light herbal aroma. Malty and a little bit of caramel flavour. The bitterness perfectly offsets the sweetness. The light body, the medium-low carbonation and the 4.8% Abv make it easy to drink. Maracuja05 (1333) - Mainz, GERMANY - JUL 17, 2017
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. kermis (14273) - The Hague / Amsterdam, NETHERLANDS - MAY 27, 2017
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! thellgren (1100) - Helsinki, FINLAND - MAY 13, 2017
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 (1465) - 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 (1176) - 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 (2516) - 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 (1931) - 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.
