Bottle, March 07. Pale straw color with a huge white head. Haylike aroma and a touch of herbal hops. Bitter, methallic flavor and a malty longing aftertaste. Light MF and a dry refreshing aftertaste. Refreshing little beer.

UPDATED: APR 4, 2007 During my first visit to Dusseldorf, I was looking forward to try a local alt. I got to try Fruh Kolsch at Schalander instead. I thought it looked more like a lager, I was fooled by its flavor. It had a taste more like a top fermenting ale. It has a delicate, slightly fruit aroma, with a light fruit flavor. Dry hops finish and refreshing.

Bottled(500ml). -Pale golden coloured, huge white head, slight cardboard nose. Low carbonation. The aroma is malty, hoppy and slight grainy with strong herbal notes. Dry bitter finish. My second Kölsch, and Küppers is much better.

aerosol999 (113) - Quebec, CANADA - JAN 18, 2007
Appearance: Pale straw/light gold with fluffy white head Aroma: Light complex pilsner malt character little to no hop aroma Flavour: Very light but complex with pilsner malt and noble hop flavours. Nothing too distinct but clean and light. Very clean. Mouthfeel: light body which disappears quickly in the mouth (and glass) Overall : Very light crisp and clean with pilsner malt being the star of the show and the main flavour profile. Very clean and easy drinking.
