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.

From a bottled and poured into a stemmed pilsner glass. Nice fine white foam head of 1 1/4 inch or so with pale amber/medium yellow color and slight bubbles in the carbonation. Aroma of very faint citrus hop, some yeast. Also smells like it would be sweet so that might be some maltness too, but faint. Tastes crisp and light, slight citrus tang and finish; very refreshing! Some hop bitterness but blends very well with the yeast and overall smoothness is excellent. I need to get one of my faves, Reissdorf, to compare.
