Gaffel Kölsch

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.

Rating: 7.0 out of 10.
