Like all kölsch beers, Gaffel hails from Cologne, Germany. It comes in a 500mL bottle and weighs in at 4.8% alcohol. Gaffel pours a bright golden colour. It's very clear, has lots of carbonation and it topped by a substantial white head. With each sip, Gaffel leaves behind curtains of lace.
It has a slightly metallic aroma that features notes of sweet corn and a bitter kick. The flavour is mild--nicely balanced between a gentle bitterness and a bready, malty sweetness. It's a mild little brew, quite refreshing and drinkable. Perhaps a touch too sweet for my taste, but still nice. Definitely worth buying.
