COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
German style golden ale that originates in the Koln (Cologne) region of Germany. This style of beer is brewed with around 12% Wheat malt, the rest of the grist being German Pilsner malt. Restrained hop bitterness is produced by the use of German noble hops such as Hallertau, Hersbrucker or Tettnang varietals, which also adds a subtle fresh piney or spicy note. This style of beer is protected by the "Kolsch-Konvention" pact signed in 1986 by 24 breweries in and around Cologne that is recognized by the German Government and allows these breweries exclusive rights to the word Kolsch to describe their beer. As such, the Mad Fox Kolsch beer will be labeled Kolsch-style.
