Gaffel is a great pick/example of the true Kolsch style. I've had this both on tap in the brewery in Koln and bottled at home. I am thrilled it's available in the US, but make sure the bottles aren't dusty! Some people might not prefer this beer because of the perception of a session beer... Don't compare to an American ale or Belgian beer loaded with all sorts of bold flavors. For fans of German Pils. What it is, is a clean tasting beer with a certain sweetness and earthiness that must be fresh and is also best when drank with the proper 'ritual.' Drink it in the 'Stanger' type glasses meant for pounding the beer down with friends! Good times.

Part of me is more interested in Kolsch as a type of beer than I'm actually interested in drinking it. I think the flavors are generally too subtle for my unrefined taste. Gaffel is the best I've had, but I still struggle to remember how it tastes exactly, even from just a few hours ago. Crisp, light, with a distinct (but soft) sour aftertaste. A decent beer for spring but not something I'll keep coming back for.

Pours perfectly. Golden with a white head that falls fast. Exceptional clarity. Nose is malty with a bit of yeast. There's a touch of grass or what I would call wet hay and a subtle white grape fruitiness. Just brilliant! Drinks like a lazy summer evening. Has a moderate carbonation that gives it lightness. It's a touch bitter and the fruitiness is subdued but firm. The malty bearing of this beer is crisp and a true delight in it's simplicity. Bites a little before it finishes dry and with a bit of sweetness to linger a moment.
I love it!
