FistFullOfCats (163) - Raleigh, North Carolina, USA - DEC 31, 2006
Bottle. Pours a straw yellow with a cheap looking soapy white head that dissipates quickly. Lots of carbonation in this one; it looks almost exactly like ginger ale when poured. Aroma of corn and not much else. Flavor of sweet corn, apples, and uh, cornbread. Finishes with corn. So…this, out to the bottle, tastes like PBR on draft. If this was $5 for a 6, then fine, but well…its not. Oh well.

Draft at Craft Brewed. Pours a clearish gold with a finger of foam that lingers. Grainy nose, lots of fields of grain. Clean and crisp, faint sweetness. Light hops on the finish. What a Kölsch should be. Very enjoyable.

Being brought up on Altbier it's hard to be objective on Kölsch. Among the Kölsch I had, I find Reissdorf to be among the best.

A really nice Kolsch, though not the best of the varieties I tried on my visit to Cologne. Light a crisp, hay and grass. Mild, bright bitterness.

Must have old beer. Really skunky. Was in cologne, drink the local brew. Very skunk. Old.

Draft. Golden pour. Aroma and taste of grainy malt, fresh bitters, herbs and a bitter grassy . Typical, but nice.

luttonm (6633) - Seattle, Washington, USA - AUG 31, 2017
Bottle in Seattle. White fluffy head, bright clear gold body. Aroma of cardboard and grass, some sweet bready yeast as well. Intriguing mix of flavors on body, remains quite dry throughout with honey and cardboard notes. Dry grass, golden character, some fruits and light ester. Dry bitter finish, with some banana to boot. Fair.

tonyferrari (33) - North Rhine-Westphalia, GERMANY - AUG 12, 2017
Served on tap. Crystal clear straw-golden colour. Thick lasting white foam. Slightly herbal tending towards citrusy aroma. Slightly malty smooth flavour well balanced by the low-bitterness. The low body, the low carbonation and the 4.8% Abv make it a refreshing beer. A milestone in the kölsch panorama in Cologne.

zlote, klarowne. Piana opada, ale nie znika. Ladnie oblepia szklo. Slaby slodowy aromat. W smaku lekkie z delikatna goryczka na finiszu.
