A style distinctive to Cologne, the name Kolsch is protected by law so that only beers brewed in and around the city can bear the name. A dangerously drinkable beer with an unsurpassed balance in Kolsch beer of malt and soft delicate hops. Pale gold in colour with a good lasting head, the hoppy, dry finish is from using Hallertau and Tettnang hops. Pale lemony gold in colour with a pure white lasting head, the aroma of Fruh Kolsch is lightly fruity with some flowery hops. Taste is very clean, a result unlike normal ales, of cold conditioning. Fresh, with just a touch of bitter hops.
Fruh have been brewing their very unusual Kolsch beer for over 100 years in the shadow of Cologne cathedral. Kolsch is a top-fermented beer – using an ale yeast rather than a lager – but is then lagered at very low temperatures like a pilsner or a helles.
