Gaffel Kolsch

A properly prepared Kolsch is a thing of beauty. These ales undergo considerable lagering and are clean, lightly fruity with a crisp hop finish. A very delicate brew. I'm sorry if it's not from Cologne it's crap.

Gaffel Kolsch = 5/10
Ratebeer 2.94 43rd percentile
Beer Advocate B+

It just smells clean: like fresh cut grass and organic orange peel. Up front a refreshing, spicy hop tingle clears the palate for a wash of green apple, lemon and straw. The finish is gloriously clean with no off flavours/DMS. I could drink this every day and be a happy man. The description does not fully describe the refreshing nature of this beer.
