I only had 3 years of high school German, if that makes you feel any better.

LOL I had three years of HS Deutsche and a month one summer in Deutschland. We have a lot of Germans and Czechs here. Should have taken Espanish...

But this is American language which is unique and has no need for any sort of pretensions. Kolsch. Pronounced exactly as spelled.

Except the BJCP, World Beer Cup, and GABF disagree. Those are about as close as we'll get to "authorities" on beer styles in the US. As soon as they agree with you, or it gets into an English dictionary, I'll start spelling it "Kolsch."

They may be authorities on beer but language? Sorry but I'll stick to my 'merican habit of pronouncing and spelling kolsch. ::) You can do as you please.

Maibock, Helles, Doppelbock, Eisbock are all spelled the German way. I don't see anyone calling their beer a Maybock or a Light or a Double Bock (just kidding on the last one, http://www.beeradvocate.com/beer/profile/35/47785/)

Edit: and apparently there are "May Bocks" as well: http://www.ratebeer.com/beer/maritime-pacific-maybock/19207/

So, I don't know what my point is. But I like Jim's suggestion of Colognesh. Maybe Cologner?

Yeah it's got a PDO (Protected designation of origin). I thought those were kinda silly before I got here, but it really makes buying food products a lot better, especially cheese.
