Notes/Commercial Description:
Our Kölsch is a classic golden ale that uses a centuries old yeast strain sourced from a famous Kölsch brewer in Köln, Germany. Fermented at 62 degrees, then cold conditioned, it has the delicate fruity aroma of an ale with the crisp, clean finish of a lager. It is brewed with lightly roasted malt and 100% German Noble Hops: Perle for bitterness and Hallertau Traditional for flavor and aroma.

In 1918, the term Kölsch was used to describe the ale brewed in Köln, a city on the Rhine River in western Germany. The style began to rise in popularity in the 1960s and now, many American craft brewers brew variations of the style, labeling it a golden ale. Our Kölsch is unique to the Schlafly brewery because Ulrike, a native of Köln and wife of brewery co-founder Tom Schlafly, connected Schlafly Beer with the Gaffel Brewery of Köln. Schlafly Beer won the Gold Medal for Best German-style Kölsch in the World Beer Cup in 2010.

Light medium gold pour with lasting bright white head. Smell is a light grassy, grainy, corn, and honey smell. Taste is like a hearty corn, honey, grain sweetness with a good crisp carbonation. A tad watery in the middle, but finishes nicely with a good short staying pale malty and honey like sweetness. Very tasty, refreshing, and easy drinking like most kolsches, but also quite simple. Scored it high, because it definitely left me wanting another one.
