From the recipe by Peter Josef Früh of the family brewery, this top-fermented specialty beer features the best ingredients and is brewed according to the German Purity Law. A favorite beer of Cologne, which became one of the city’s original.

Bottle, june 12th. Pours clear golden with a medium sized white head that quickly dissipates. Aroma is sweet biscuity, caramel, light floral. Taste is mid sweet malty and light bitter with light floral and vegetal notes. Light/medium bodied, average carbonation.

Alengrin (941) - BELGIUM - AUG 15, 2014
One of the classic Kölsch beers, with finely structured, creamy, stable foam and pale straw blonde colour. Soft malty aroma with spicy and flowery accents, malt sweetness in the mouth, more so than in many other Kölsch beers which also use wheat malt (not this one), drying and ending in a herbally hoppy, elegantly bitterish finish. Kölsch is all about subtlety and this one surely has what it takes to be a fine example of its style.

VincentKabel (195) - Haarlem, NETHERLANDS - AUG 11, 2014
A Kölsch, pretty much like al the others. Malty flavour, slightly hopped, light and refreshing with a fainty fruitiness to it. My favourite style when i’m in the region.

Brewfoolery (18) - California, USA - AUG 6, 2014
Poured at the brewery on a glorious August afternoon. Crystall clear appearance with white foamy head. Clean Pilsner palate with very mild Mittelfrüh hop bitterness. Perfect clean aftertaste with hints of citrus at the finish. Well worth the journey

Doofgoblin (287) - Fort Collins, Colorado, USA - AUG 4, 2014
The aroma has a bit of bran (like cereal notes). The taste is malt forward, but it lacks a complexity that I was hoping for... the finish is mostly clean with a light crispness. Overall, it’s really forgettable and not my favorite.

uckelman (253) - Baden-Württemberg, GERMANY - AUG 3, 2014
Odd, skunky aroma. Sweet, sticky. Can’t see it due to having it from the bottle on the train. So much for proper glaasware.

Påminner den den gamla brygden TT i minipet dvs inget vidare den vinner nog på att serveras iskall en varm sommardag tillsammans med en skiva falukorv!

Pale yellow colour with a white head. Moderate sweet aroma with a light grassy and fruity note. Flavour are about the same. Moderate sweet malty, light grassy and fruity. Felt a bit thin and light.
