COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Our tribute to Cologne’s unique, crisp, golden ale/lager hybrid. We start with German malt and hops and tie it all together with a true Kolsch yeast from Cologne to impart some subtle fruit and wine flavors while producing the smoothness of a lager. Served in an authentic Kolsch stange to enchance the crisp, cool, effervescence of this thirst-quenching beer. Malts: German pilsner, Munich and wheat Hops: German Spalt and Hersbrucker

brokensail (11231) - Orange County, California, USA - DEC 1, 2010
A: The pour is a clear golden straw color with a nice creamy white head. S: A somewhat light nose that is fairly grainy with some hints of bread. A bit of a yeast, citrus peel, and floral and citrusy hops as well. T: Fairly bready without being all that sweet. A mild hop bitterness to it with nice floral notes, citrus zest, and a nice clean and crisp flavor. M: The body is light to medium with a lively carbonation. D: A nice well done, simple, and refreshing kolsch. Probably the best beer on-tap this day as well.
