COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
While known for their lagers, German brewers also produce terrific ales. French Broad’s Kölsch is faithful to the great German ales found in Köln. Golden in color, with a refreshing crispness, pleasantly sweet malt finish, and distinctive German hopping.

Cybercat (3315) - Georgia, USA - MAY 25, 2013
Comes out of the tap a clear golden, bit of a white head. Malty aroma has an overtone of pear. Crisp, malty flavor has a firm note of pear and a hoppy undertone. Texture has only average thickness but good fizz, and leaves behind a fairly persistent tingle. A gateway to what? Perhaps a good "gateway" beer to wean people off the industrial swill.
