Style | ABV
Kölsch |  5.20% ABV

Availability: Year-round

Notes/Commercial Description:
"In Cologne, Germany, many a brewery produces a light-bodied ale with a delicate fruitiness and rounded maltiness, attributable to the unique yeast strain commonly used. Our Kölsch is unfiltered and more generously hopped than its German cousin."

Brewed with Gambrinus Organic Pilsner and Munich malt and Perle hops. 5.2% ABV, 40 BU

a: slightly hazy bright golden yellow with a large 3 finger slightly marshmellow-like head

s: slightly pepper-like yeast right away. bright sweet lemons, tons of that nice bready dough aroma. balanced out by some nice sweet malt. finishes with some earthy mellow hops

t: that sweet citrus and pepper spice hit you right away. fades to a burnt bread flavor followed by some smooth sweet malts. finishes with a pretty nice earthiness - not bitter. a bit wheat

m: light and pretty carbonated

o: a nice lawnmowing beer. this is crisp and refreshing, yet at the same time offers a nice blend of flavors that provide a good taste without complicating it. very refreshing in a good day

Picked up at Brewforia Meridian last week for a very pricey $5... But well made. Pours a slightly hazed straw golden below a 1 finger stark white head that sticks around for a while and leaves good lacing.

Nose is pretty traditional... light pale maltiness ... slight bigger than standard grassy hoppiness.. Light fruitiness and a touch of sulfur.

Fairly dry throughout the palate, but there is enough residual maltiness to bring out a minerally/sulfur quality and accentuate a bigger than expected bitterness.. a little malt sweetness shows on the finish with warmth... hops are sorta spicy/grassy, but overall pretty light.

Body is light with a good carbonation.... very drinkable... I would buy this again if it wasn't so damn expensive.

Pale golden brew in the Saxo tall tulip. Big frothy head and plenty of lacing along the glass. Richly carbonated with a tangy hoppiness from the first mouthful. The aroma is quite pronounced with flowery and resiny hops.

Sweet and crackery taste with the perfumey hops not far behind. A touch of light fruit, like pears. Mouthfeel is a little coarse. Full of aromatics with a nice balance between malt and sharp and hoppy notes. Rather tart finish. From the 500 ml bottle purchased at Bine & Vine in San Diego.
