Yellow/golden, white head. Aroma brings some hops and vegetables, malt and spices. Hoppy grassy flavor, a bit dry and bitterness stays for some time in the finish.

UPDATED: MAY 25, 2013 Cask at Ship and Mitre, Liverpool. I was on an excellent run of continental beers, Kuppers, Westmalle Dubbel, Erdinger Dunkel and now Fruh. Just like the Kuppers light gold and citric and refreshing and gorgeous 4.1/5 Re-rate At the Fruh pub in Koln. Very pale gold, thin white head. Slightly yeasty lemony hoppy aroma. Stunningly fresh aroma. Perfectly soft carbonation. So drinkable its unture. Slight but balanced tingling hop finish. Perfect Kolsch, I drank so much I lost count.

MoritzF (8250) - Bochum, GERMANY - JUN 7, 2005
(bottle) Pale light golden colour with a quickly diminishing frothy white head. Nose of sweet malts and citrus fruits, and a bit skunky hoppiness. Medium sweet flavour, crispy but quite light bodied, almost a bit watery. Malty and citrus fruity taste with a short and soft bitterness in the finish.

Blond color. Malt aroma, with a nice fresh grash touch, still present in the flavor but lighter. The final has a residual sweetness. I expected something more crispy and stylish...

Blond color. Aroma of rice and hop. Simple taste, dry, some ending sweetness. Uninteresting.

Great! Just discovered this wee gem at a great new bar that’s selling all sorts of German madness. I’m sure there will be better brews along the waybut for now I can’t get enough of this one. VERY crisp, perfect after a big dinner.

Ungstrup (28448) - Citizen of the universe, DENMARK - FEB 6, 2005
UPDATED: APR 17, 2005 [Draft] A light yellow beer with a small white head. The aroma is very sweet with light notes of hops. The flavor is grassy and very much like other Kölsch I’ve had. [Bottle] A light yellow beer with a disappearing head. The aroma is hoppy and slightly sour. The flavor is malty and very hoppy, leading to a dry end, but the body is thin. [4/2/5/2/8]
