Free State Kasa-Obake Kölsch


Brewed by Free State Brewing Company
Lawrence, Kansas USA
Style: Kölsch | Ratings: 4 | Alcohol: -
This light-bodied straw-colored ale takes its name from Japanese folklore and its unique hop flavors (lemon, dill) from the coveted, Japanese grown, Sorachi Ace hop. The Kasa-Obake is a strange apparition in Japanese folklore with one eye and one leg that springs to life from an umbrella once it turns 100 years old. The beer finishes with a crisp effervescence and flavors of pineapple, lemon, and dill following a dry-hopping with Centennial hops.
O.G. - 10.6ºP/1.042
Hops - Sorachi Ace, Centennial
