7/17/10 notes: Bottle. Good lightly floral bready aroma. Color is bright gold with a small head. Flavor is light malt, bit of a herbal hops, soft mouthfeel. Goes down gently, with pleasant flavors and finish. Pershing (559) - Garland, Texas, USA - JUL 28, 2010
Pale yellow with fizzy carbonation that fades quickly. Grainy aroma, thin crisp taste on the palate with some lingering spice. Cleaner and smoother than the American versions. legion242 (2348) - Richardson, Texas, USA - JUL 18, 2010
My first truly German Kolsch and I think I finally get the appeal. All of the American versions were so lame and this one is very, very refreshing. brekeriet (139) - SWEDEN - JUL 14, 2010
On tap at Brauerie Sünner im Walfisch. Malty, fruity aroma. Nice taste. A bit sour. Quite pale. No lasting head. Immy (1955) - Virginia Beach, USA - JUL 13, 2010
On tap at Busch Gardens in Williamsburg, VA. Shocked the hell outta me seeing non-AB taps, sale of AB notwithstanding. Anyway, clear gold with a very nice, fizzy, white head. Bready malt nose, cereal and crisp floral and grass hop aromas. Bold (for a Kölsch) grassy hop flavors over mildly sweet bread. Palate is light, but rounded out well. Really liked this one - a really pleasant surprise in AB-land!

500ml bottle. Thin, filtered looking orange-yellow. Respectable white head. Some brewery aroma, with a touch of lemon. Relatively straightforward stuff, light to medium bodied. Doughy mouthfeel, balanced out by a light hoppy spiciness. Bready, with a little bit of graininess inthe finish. Pleasant session beer, hyper-quaffable. blipp (9139) - La Mesa, California, USA - JUL 12, 2010
Draft. Pours gold with a white head. Pale malty aroma with a grainy hint. The flavor has pale malts, a light sweetness and light earthy hops. Solid. yngwie (17038) - Kristiansand, NORWAY - JUL 12, 2010
Bottle. It pours a sparkling, clear body, a bit pale golden, and topped by a big, dense, creamy white head. Weak, grainy nose with a fruity touch. Grainy and fruity flavor, pleasantly hopped, but quite uninteresting anyway. Medium body, dry. A decent one, nothing more. Guess it slakes the thirst quite well though. 100327 taphandle (1135) - Texas, USA - JUL 11, 2010
Clear yellow, decent head, but fades quickly. Brown bottle but the aroma has a touch of skunkiness. The flavor his a bit of spice to it, then some fruit in the finish. But that skunkiness is still there. TizzleJizzle (791) - Garland, Texas, USA - JUL 10, 2010
Aroma of spicy citrus and dough. Poured a boring golden color with a white head that vanished quickly and no lacing. Tasted notes of lemon peel, light spruce, and slight bitterness. Fizzy on the palate. Not a bad summer brew.
