The color is light golden and the head is nice and white. The aroma has malty and floral notes. The flavour has a light sweetness, notes of flower, light fruit and a slightly dry citrus. It’s mild, smooth and quite enjoyable.

330 ml. bottle from the Hauptbahnhof in Aachen. Gold color with a frothy two finger white head. Light grass/citrus aroma. Starts bitter with a follow on of pale malt. Near medium body with light, prickly carbonation. Missing the fresh fruitiness of other kölsch beers I really enjoyed in Aachen. Nice bitter finish.

botanical aroma and a white head atop a thin yellow body. Somehow better than most other bottled kolsch options that are widely avaliable. Lingering citrus and sweet hop finish. Carbonation compinsated for the thin mouthfeel.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
UPDATED: FEB 28, 2009 Bottled 50cl. It pours a pale yellow beer with a white head. Lively carbonation. The nose is a bit weak, but remarkably nice and interesting. Some gooseberries, elderflower, strawberries and grapefruit appearing. The characteristics in the aroma are wonderful. Lots of hops and hay in the taste. Sweet and medium bodied with some grapefruit showing up. Citrusy finish with a hint of elderflower. A very good beer. Top notch Kölsch.

Me, a friend, two pretty German girls and fresh Fruh Kolsh...sitting in Koln. It doesn’t get much better. This is a great beer fresh, I’ve never had it any other way.

The bottle looks good, the beer in the glass also. Could be a little bit more foam. Fine aroma. Tastes sweet and fruity, in the finish modest dry. Well done!
