The Kölsch style is a hybrid between an ale and a lager that is protected by the Kölsch Konvention in and around Koln, GER. The Konvention simply defines the beer as a "light, highly attenuated, hop-accentuated, clear top-fermenting Vollbier." Our version of Kölsch uses Pilsener and Koln malt, Noble hops, and is fermented with a lager yeast at ale temperatures. Moerlein Philippus Kirche Kolsch is a clean, crisp, delicately balanced beer, with a soft malt presence and a dry finish. Enjoy Moerlein Philippus Kirche Kolsch with the French Onion and Wild Mushroom Soup, the Chicken Parmesean Penne, or the Caprese Flatbread.

Draft at the Lager House. I somehow missed this the first two years around, but finally got a crack at it this season. Pours a clear, pale bright gold with a small white head that settles into a ring. Notes of straw, pale and cereal and crackery malts, grassy hops, and faint fruit that seems like apple. Light-bodied, with moderate to medium carbonation and a malty mouthfeel. Well, nothing exciting, but not a bad example of the style. I’d like to see the Noble hops pop just a little more; that would really help this one.

From notes. Tasted on 8/22/13 on draft at the Lager House at the ballpark during a baseball trip with Adam and Taylor. Pours deep golden with a thin white head that leaves a thin ring of lace. The nose is light caramel and bread malt with some underlying spicy noble hops. The flavor is a bit more hops focused with the malt in the background. The body is just under medium with lively carbonation and a medium spicy hops finish.

Draft at the Lager House: Pours a great golden color with a healthy white head on it. It’s malty and slightly floral. Sweet and malty flavor. Nice summer beer. Could drink this all day!

Draft sample at Lager House. Poured clear golden color with an average frothy white head that mostly lasted with excellent lacing. Moderate balanced malt and floral hop aroma. Medium body with a smooth texture and soft carbonation. Medium sweet flavor with a medium sweet finish of moderate duration. Solid drinkable beer.
