COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
This lager like ale is modeled after the official beer of Köln, Germany. Kolsch is delicate and refreshing with a slight fruitiness and supportive, yet unobtrusive hop bitterness

MiP (13598) - Sønderborg, DENMARK - OCT 22, 2011
Draught at the brewpub. No aroma to speak of. Clear shiny yellow colour. Small white head. Good malty flavour with a hint of fine hops. Faint hint of sourness in the finish, but not problematic. Not as clean and crisp as a real Kölsch, but OK.
