COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Golden straw color and mildly hopped with German Hallertau, Tettnang and Spalt varieties. A single decoction mashing technique was employed to tame the under modified Pilsner malt used in the recipe, resulting in a malt forward flavor profile. The hallmark of this style is its unique position between an ale and a lager - fermented cooler than an ale but warmer than a lager thereby creating a beer that exhibits characteristics of both beer families. Crisp and refreshing like a lager yet complex and slightly fruity like an ale, this beer is enjoyed in the traditional straight sided Kölsch glass.

On tap at the brewpub. Pours orangy golden with decent sized head, nicely carbonated. Orange and grassy aroma. Some hops in there, nice clean flavor. Nice beer on a warm day. copyright, grimreeser

the aroma was faint but was of some fruit and hops. The flavor was heavy on the malts and had notes of fruit, citrusy like an orange. There were some hops thrown in there but didn’t really make it bitter

Hazy golden blonde pour. Nose of mint, hay, orange rind and popcorn. Tastes of pilsner malt and grasses with fleeting moments of sourness. A bite of white grape and sweaty lager yeast. Light and refreshing. Easy, but interesting.
