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.

Poured from a bottle into a pint glass sitting on my front porch on a cool Saturday spring afternoon.

Pale yellow gold with 2 finger creamy white head that settles to persistent 1 finger head with very prominent lacing. Slightly hazy with lots of tiny bubbles.

Light aroma of mild malt with grassy hops, hint of citrus and yeast.

Taste is soft, clean grainy malt, low bitterness, mild spicy hops.

Medium-light body with medium-high carbonation. Smooth.

A very drinkable, smooth, crisp spring/summer brew with plenty of flavor.
