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.

NoiZe (2324) - Amersfoort, NETHERLANDS - MAY 26, 2007
Golden coloured brew. Clean smell, a bit alcoholic. Not that good flavor, a bit too carbonated. I’ve had better Kölsch brews.

joergen (21081) - Frederiksberg, DENMARK - MAY 22, 2007
Draught. Clear pale yellow coloured with a white head. Malty aroma of fruits, hops and hay. Flavour of malts, hay, fruits and hops.

Stew41 (1736) - Woodend, AUSTRALIA - MAY 22, 2007
Unremarkable light gold in colour and zero head. Very clean looking. Nose is a mix of slight mushy, stale malts and talcum powder / mineral-like notes. Quite sharp early in the mouth with cutting, more powdery notes and a slightly burning acid character (wine-like in this respect). The stodgy malts evident on the nose kick in late. Ok beer I guess

jspruit (122) - Dublin, IRELAND - MAY 21, 2007
Purchased in a 500ml bottle at the Bull and Castle in Dublin. Poured a golden smooth color with light 2-finger white head. Not too much smell. Smooth with some carbonation and light hoppiness-nothing remarkable though. Tasted better and cleaner as it approached room temperature a bit. I would like to try another Kölsch style beer before coming back to this one.

joe19612 (1861) - camberley, Surrey, ENGLAND - MAY 20, 2007
Bottle. Clear golden colour, medium white head. Mallty aroma with subtle complexity, some fruity notes of peaches, and some herbal and citrus ops. Medium bodied. Well balanced with a dry and bitter finish. Much better draught in Koln.

Skinnyviking (7138) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - MAY 15, 2007
Bottle. Small white and quickly disappearing head. Clear yellow body. Weak anonymous hops aroma. Mild and fruity fresh and a bit thin flavor.

Hazmatt (363) - Virginia, USA - MAY 14, 2007
Bottle. Brilliant golden color, decent white head. Malty aroma with noble hop smell. Clean tasting, estery with a good balance. A clean, not too crisp, mildly fruity ale. Pretty good but overall a bit boring to me.

larsniclas (5635) - Billdal, SWEDEN - MAY 1, 2007
Draught at Delirium Café, Gotehnburg, Sweden. Pale golden with a frim, white head. Light bready and grassy maltiness. Milky palate with sojme dry bitterness.

Russo (1685) - Campinas, BRAZIL - APR 28, 2007
Clear golden color with a fruit aroma and little bit bitter at finish. Nice Koln beer!
