The Koelsch is carefully crafted outside the 20 mile radius of metropolitan Koln, with complete disregard for the Koelsch Convention. Brewed in the traditional German style, this unfiltered ale is a dry medium bodied drop with a delicate white head and a golden straw colour. The palate has citrus and pear flavours with a hint of malty biscuit and a clean and refreshing finish.

Unfiltered German ale, easily approachable with crisp hopping.

Formerly Five Islands Kolsch

On tap at the Courthouse. Very basic beer. Aroma is floral, wet leaves, and hint of citrus. Taste is sweet, with light bitterness, and average length. Palate is oily, with a thin-to-medium body. Yellow, with a frothy head.

ndon (857) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - JAN 6, 2011
On tap at the brewpub. One of the nicer beers from Five Islands. Typically a summer style, quite thin, with plenty of citrus in both the aroma and taste. Decent hit of saltiness, and backed by a light sweet caramel malt.
