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.

Tranquillity (1646) - Amsterdam, NETHERLANDS - JUN 30, 2007
Bier trip in Köln, yeah! This one I actually had already in the Germanwings plane. Strong, raw hoppy aroma. Yellow without a head. Taste...exactly like an average lager!

TaxiDriver (1655) - Stadland, GERMANY - JUN 26, 2007
Bottle. Very sweet, aroma of caramel. Clear yellow body with a white head which is fully dimishing. It starts sweet an goes on to a bittersweet finish with an average duration. Light to medium body, oily texture and only a soft carbonation.

garthicus (2842) - Dublin, IRELAND - JUN 13, 2007
UPDATED: AUG 30, 2007 Draught - Golden colour, nice head, grassy - malt flavour with a balanced finish which made it a very drinkable beer.

Rastacouere (6164) - Montreal, Quebec, CANADA - JUN 10, 2007
Extremely clear, palest yellow pour with a small head that does not really last. Malt-focused nose is rather grainy with minimal hay notes. At the middle of sweet and dry, minimal floral suggestions and deceptively thin. Well they were going for the masses with this one. A bit dull, without crispness and not really worth a second glass.

thewolf (11731) - Kolding, DENMARK - MAY 28, 2007
Bottle. Clear bubbly pale yellow with a small fizzy head that disappears quickly. Aroma is sweet and malty with a touch of wine gums. Very spritzy mouthfeel - a high carbonation. Finish is sweet with a herbal and smoky edge and a citric bitterness.

NoiZe (2323) - Zeist, 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 (24790) - 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 (1857) - 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 (2368) - 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.
