Früh Kölsch

Früh Kölsch

A very drinkable beer with a fine balance of malt and delicate hops. Pale gold with a lasting head, the dry finish is from using Hallertau and Tettnang hops.
Style Lager and Hybrid Beers
Country German Beers
ABV 4.8%
Serving Temp 6 to 8°C
Bottle Size 500ml

The Fruh Kölsch is one of about 20 beers in the world that can be called as such since only beers brewed in the area around Cologne, Germany can bear the appellation Kölsch. This interesting style is brewed using an ale yeast that is fermented at cooler temperatures and lagered.

The Fruh version has a beautiful carbonation that gives us a fluffy white head and a sparkling appearance. Lovely aromas of fruit, lemons, and grains are reflected in its flavour. A solid bitterness, crisp mouthfeel, and semi-dry finish make the Fruh Kölsch an incredibly easy drink.

Product Reviews

  • Classic Kolsch

    Review by Mark

    Classic Kolsch. Pours a clear straw colour. Light bready aromas and ever so slightly fruity. Looks like a lager, tastes like a lager but with a subtle fruitiness. Really enjoyable easy drinking beer. (Posted on 26/12/2017)

  • Kolsch

    Review by Michael

    The best kolsch around. Like being in Cologne (Posted on 10/12/2017)

  • Excellent

    Review by martin

    A very nice example of the Kolsch style. And from a brewer authentic to that region (Posted on 28/11/2017)

  • An Introduction

    Review by Paul

    The first German beer I bought many moons ago, and always come back to for a reminder of good old fashioned German brewing! Easy to drink. (Posted on 23/11/2017)

  • A solid beer

    Review by David

    A solid German pilsner that isn't going to set the world on fire, but is very pleasant to drink. (Posted on 03/10/2017)

  • Nice

    Review by AdyG

    A classic Kolsch. Crisp with a hint of fruit, the mouthfeel is excellent. (Posted on 21/08/2017)

  • The good times I had in Cologne

    Review by pathud

    This beer is light and is perfect for a warm evening. Reminds me of my trips to Cologne where this is the number 1 beer. Not the tastiest of course but fresh and easy to drink. Perfect for a chat in the garden with friends. (Posted on 09/08/2017)

  • Subtle but very nice example

    Review by Scott M

    Very subtly and lightly flavoured alt beer. Citrus and very slightly floral aromas. Slightly hoppy. Extremely refreshing on a warm day and definitely sessionable at 4.8%. One of my new favourite summer beers. Let the warm weather continue... (Posted on 19/06/2017)

  • Lager

    Review by Alex

    Lager fans enjoy! No depth of flavour. Gassy. Tastes nil point. (Posted on 12/05/2017)

  • Bang Average

    Review by baz_the_barn

    Nothing spectacular about this in fact very average for a German Blond, probably missing something from the keg version (Posted on 03/05/2017)

  • Best bier ever

    Review by Koelle Alaaf

    If you want to try the real taste of Germany, try this one from lovely Koeln ! (Posted on 10/03/2017)

  • Superb Example of a Classic Kolsch

    Review by Alexander

    There are some beers that are good because they are different, they are loud. Do you remember the first time you had a Punk IPA -- it was, for lack of a better description somewhat assertive. This is not one of those beers. This is a beautiful subtle and particularly well made beer. Attention provided to all the specifics of precision brewing. You can tell from the perfect balance, it's tasteful carbonation, and subtle flavours whilst they do not scream at you they are mostly certainly present, that more attention in the brewhouse is going into when an ingredient goes into the copper rather than getting as much into it as possible.

    In short it is a beautiful beer. The fuss they make in Germany about protecting these Kolsch products are most definitely warranted. (Posted on 13/01/2017)

  • Nice lager!

    Review by Beer Baron

    A nice, not too fizzy lager beer. Tastes of grain, light in colour, very moreish and only 4.8%. (Posted on 05/12/2016)

  • Crisp and Fresh

    Review by Brooksie

    After visiting Koln and drinking Kolsch on draught I had to try again, just as good chilled in a bottle, crisp, fresh and doesn't sit heavy on you, definitely going to reorder. (Posted on 27/11/2016)

  • Clean and simple

    Review by Bantam

    The beer has a simple pilsener look. The color is a beautiful golden yellow. It has a simple smell...some lovely bitter hop aromas and a nice sweetness of the malts. The balance is very good. The taste is pretty much the same. It’s just a nice beer, easy drinkable. Good. (Posted on 21/09/2016)

  • Fresh session

    Review by Mik

    Fresh and fruty easily drinkable beer. Not a big fan but nothing wrong with it. (Posted on 15/08/2016)

  • Delicious

    Review by Heanortrev

    Doesn't quite compare to drinking it in the Fruh brewery in Koln ( Cologne ), - but is definately the next best thing.
    Beautiful fresh clean beer with no real kick - just a superb and pleasant drink.
    If you do go to Koln, then a visit to the Fruh brewery is a MUST !!! (Posted on 05/06/2016)

  • excellent german beer

    Review by Andy

    Just what you would expect from a kolsch beer even better when chilled (Posted on 28/04/2016)

  • Easy drinker

    Review by Good head

    Goes down pretty easily and I can see why so many reviewers say it is one for the summer! Drinking this on a cold February is still pretty good when you're thirsty for nice beer. Has a subtle and pleasing flavour. (Posted on 22/02/2016)

  • Nothing Special

    Review by Richard

    Didn\'t think there was anything particularly special about this, but nothing wrong either. A good session beer, but nothing to rave about. (Posted on 22/12/2015)

  • A Kolsch to savour

    Review by Myrtle38

    We re-ordered this beer as we enjoyed it so much on first tasting. A lovely easy drinking, clean and refreshing beer. Goes well with curry, would be lovely being enjoyed in the garden in the summer. A very quaffable lager-style beer. (Posted on 07/02/2015)

  • The perfect session beer

  • One of the best 2 Kölsch beers.

    Review by Colonia

    I was born and grew up in Cologne and as Kölschs go, this one and Reissdorf Kölsch are definitely the best. Forget Küppers and start stocking Reissdorf! And don't even try drinking any Kölsch lukewarm. (Posted on 24/06/2013)
