BEER INFO

Brewed by:
Free State Brewing Co.
Kansas, United States | website

Style: Kölsch

Alcohol by volume (ABV): 5.10%

Availability: Year-round

Notes / Commercial Description:
Being located in the biggest wheat producing state in the nation, a refreshing wheat beer is a must-brew. The Wheat State Golden is usually our lightest beer. It is fashioned after the Kolsch beers made around Cologne. It is traditionally brewed in the Alt Style like our Ad Astra Ale and has about 25% wheat malt. There is just a touch of caramel malt to add the golden color, and the rest is pale malt. The Golden is lightly hopped with Yakima Perle for bittering, and Hallertau Hersbrucker hops for aroma.
