RobBestwick (588) - Calgary, Alberta, CANADA - MAR 18, 2003
stawberry aroma, golden hue with a small white head, fruity, a nice mix of malts and hops, hoppy dryness in the finish, a flavoursome Kolsch

nigos (631) - Ipswich, Suffolk, ENGLAND - MAR 10, 2003
Flowery aroma and pils like appearance. Citrus and flora flavour, this is a great kolsch. Creamy malt background and elegant balancing dryness of hop. Smashing!

UPDATED: SEP 19, 2006 Tap@Früh am Dom. Light herbal nose. Fruity malt base. Citric finish. Grainy and fruity aftertaste. Medium chewy body. Was well worth trying from tap - Kölsch on bottles just doesnt work.

golden yellow. Slighty skunky aroma, nice sharp and bitter. not much flavor going on

Kaya161 (1128) - San Diego, California, USA - DEC 22, 2002
Clear pale yellow with thin but tall white head. Not as smooth or creamy as Sion, and it doesn’t have quite the same bite at the end either. A perfumy nose with a general crispness all the way through before a full, sweet finish.

pivo (2566) - GERMANY - NOV 18, 2002
I’ve had better Kölsch. Grainy, dusty nose, pale gold color and a fluffy head. Odd fruityness. The balance is just off. Light, thin.

YogiBeera (2475) - New Jersey, USA - NOV 17, 2002
Hoppy, grainy,pappery aroma. Golden with a medium diminishing head. Soft carbonation. Grainy traste, a bit like marcipan (?), Metallic finish.

I had the luck to try it in the Brauhaus Früh in Cologne... Maybe that’s why I think it’s so good. But it’s really fresh, tasty and you can drink a lot of it without any side-effects. Try the Brauereischimmel (1L)

rauchbier (3610) - Isle Of Beer, Lincolnshire, ENGLAND - OCT 15, 2002
Bottled. Nothing compares to a fresh kölsch from a wooden barrel, and Früh is not one of the best IMHO. Straw gold, low head and low natural condition. Malt in the nose, sweet malt in the mouth and some hop bitterness in the otherwise soft finish.
