bjakk (736) - Skagafjordur, - APR 26, 2012
Golden. White foam that lasts quite well. Small hint of malt in the aroma, that otherwise is almost non. low carbon and medium body. Sweet malt and also a low hop flavour. Bitter aftertaste. Nice balance.

kajser27 (1566) - 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 (758) - Bavaria, 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 (186) - 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

Blueshawk (465) - Bad Bellingen, GERMANY - OCT 3, 2016
- blassgelbe Farbe mit geringer Schaumbildung - minimale Aromen nach Getreide und Zitrone - minimale Carbonisierung - mit viel Fantasie kann man im Geschmack etwas Hopfen erkennen - völlig wässriger und unrunder Körper Fazit: Ein absoluter Tiefpunkt der Bierbraukunst

Zlotta (2514) - Hagen, GERMANY - JUL 5, 2016
On tap at ’Bierhaus am Rhein’. Clear, pale golden yellow with a frothy, white head. Sweetish, grassy and slightly fruity aroma of fresh grass, citrus and malts. Sweetish, already slightly bitter, grassy and a little fruity taste of fresh grass, citrus and some biscuits, followed by a short, moderately bitter, grassy finish. Thin to medium body, slightly effervescent mouthfeel, average carbonation. Nice Kölsch!

Gold pour, small white head. Flavor is vaguely floral and crisp. Not a lot going on but not bad. Also perhaps less thin than other kolsches.

Drank on tap at Päffgen Obergärige Hausbrauerei in Köln on 10.05.2016. Not a big fan of Kölsch but that was definitely an outstanding representation of the genre. All well balanced and the palate was much more complex and enjoyable than normal light, boring Kölsch I had tried before. A must-try in the genre.
