Outstanding Koelsch-style beer that compares well with the originals from Cologne. It is light and crispy, brewed (as far as I know) using top-fermenting yeast straight from Cologne. Served in a original "Stange" glass, it comes extremely close to some of the best known names such as Frueh. Adding a local touch to it, it is a great addition to the Schilling repertoire.

Currently, it's a single batch, but I am hoping that Jeff and John will turn this at least into a seasonal - timing is good, since it is carnival season in Cologne right now.

Came to the brewhouse on a local tip:
This Koelsh stood out:
- Nice amber color with a finger of tight, tart head.
- Crispness up front, a little tartness
- Nice yeasty zest in the middle
- Crisp at the finish.
Refreshing, would look for this again and again!
