We have upgraded from coach to First Class so strap in and enjoy the flight. Kölsch is great for those who enjoy light beers or American style pilsners. The light and subtle flavors of Kölsch are familiar and yet more complex than typical American macro beers. We use German malt, hops and yeast to create the authentic flavor of this classic style.

Bamsen78 (5071) - Sřnderborg, DENMARK - MAY 16, 2014
Pours clear light golden with quickly disappearing white head. CLear aroma of yeast, hops and paper. Light, sweetish flavour of malt, with notes of hops and subtle paperlike touches. Bitter, hoppy aftertaste, without the typical paperlike notes. OK but rather different from other beers of this type I have tasted.
