Hard to find Kolsch in Edmonton, but I found two bottles of Fruh and tried them out. A pale yellow colour with a lot of bubbles. There was a nice bit of foam but it dissipated quickly, leaving some lacing behind. A floral smell with a perfect crisp taste. The taste was mostly in the center of the mouth so it didn't overwhelm but I thought it could have been more well-rounded.

I really liked this beer and hope to get more of this specific brand as well as some other Kolschs. It would be perfect on a hot day sitting on my deck.

500 ml bottle served in a tulip glass.

A: slightly cloudy golden color with a white head that dissipates quickly

S: very delicate floral nose, presumably from the noble hops used by the Cologne brewing convention; the tulip glass brings up the delicate nose nicely

T: prominent characteristic beer flavor from the pale barley malt, with a mild sweetness said to be from the special ale yeast used by the Cologne brewing convention; noble hop bitterness was noticeable but very mild

M: Light body, medium carbonation, smooth round mouth feel; just what you look for in a kölsch

O: Reminds me of the sips of beer my German grandfather gave me when I was little. For me a kölsch from Cologne is a definitive light German ale and there is none better than Früh.

look: 3.5 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 4 | feel: 4 | overall: 4.5

500ml bottle served in a Pilsen glass.

A: Pours a pale and very clear yellow color forming a medium, bubbled and very aired white head that dissipates quickly leaving only few spotty lacings in the glass

S: Very grainy as expected. Strong notes of sweet malts and bready yeasts. Liquid bread. Very crispy. Earthy yeasts and some flowery hops in the end

T: Follows the nose. Slightly sweet upfront. Strong notes of sweet malts. Very bready and crispy. In overall, a dry taste followed by a light hops bitterness

M: Light body and medium carbonation. Crispy malty aftertaste

O: Quite drinkable. Real German stuff...
