On tap at the Stapelhaus.

Presented by a very cheerful chap in .2L glasses, brewery branded. Lovely clear yeller, minimal carbonation. Nose was faint hay, grass, weakest part of a pleasant experience.

Döm kolsch; ain't no kolsch like this in America. Clean, lighly fruity, slight sweet malt, mild sugary grass. Effervescent, and silly easy to sip. We had three in short order, and I can see drinking this in the square all day long.

Good, solid beer that did me the favor of changing my outlook on a style. Fresh kolsch? Happy to have another.

Taste: Juicy malt; smooth; refreshing; ends with nutty, slightly hoppy notes; a little thin

Remarks: metallic notes in this bottle, but I could tell the beer wouldn't be bad if it was a good sample

Did not score A, T, S, M at that time; disregard those scores

I ventured to Cologne, Germany recently, and was lucky enough to enjoy their native drink on tap, straight from the Dom Brauerei-ausschank. Going into the tasting, I knew that kolsch style ales are not supposed to be particularly aromatic or flavorful. Therefore, I judged this kolsch against how the style is supposed to be, rather than against more flavorful and "big" ales.

Appearance: disappearing head, impressive clarity, light gold color, serving it in a .21L stange was perfect to admire the clarity and beautiful color. Kolsch is a beer to be admired visually, possibly even more so than tastefully

Aroma: smells clean, corny, balanced, very little aroma or head though (as it should be)

Taste: light, delicate, flavor of corn, average bitterness, very refreshing,

Mouthfeel: light bodied, crisp, refreshing, biting carbonation

Overall: This is a well crafted kolsch whose snappy mouthfeel and light body make it perfect for consuming on a hot summer day. This is a great example of German brewing-- nothing particularly creative, but a great reverence for traditional and style. If you're a hop head or extreme beer fanatic, this beer is not for you. However, if you are interested in beer history and the German art of delicate, restrained brewing skill, then this kolsch is for you.

I was in Germany yesterday and stayed in a hotel in Köln. They had this one on tap so i had to try this. Where better than in Köln!

Tapped fresh in a small 2 deciliter original Dom glass. Nice head but little carbonation. For the rest it feels like a Kölsch and tastes like a Kölsch. Not very spectacular because this is not my favourite style but i enjoyed it!

Pours a light pale yellow with a fizzy head which dissipates quickly. Aroma is sweet with a touch of grassy hops. Taste is the same with a very predominant sweetness, almost honey-like and then a light bitter finish. Flavors, however, are pretty monotone even for a Kölsch.

Crystal-clear gold. Good two-finger head, and great lacing for the style.

Aroma is inoffensively clean with crisp and lightly malty notes. Meh.

Flavor is clean and smooth, with a good maltiness for a Kölsch. I get more of a bready, crusty backbone, something many Kölsch don't have, in addition to the sweet, biscuity flavors. Though, I have also had Kölsch with better hop flavor. And cleaner ones, too. This is not bad though. Not bitter, but definitely dry and not too sweet as well. Far from impressive, but very drinkable.

Kölsch is a delicate style, and Dom is an average example.

Have I really not reviewed a Kölsch before? Huh.

This one had a very nice apple juice and malt nose to it, and it's also a very refreshing beer style--this is a subtle take on the style, there's not really a note that stands out, just a little bit of citrus, a little bit of hops, a little bit of sweet biscuit. Mild carbonation and a mouthfeel on the light side.
