COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Kolsch 45 is just what you need on a hot summer day. Kölsch beer originated in Cologne, Germany and is unique in that it is a warm fermented ale, but is aged like most traditional German lagers at a cool temperature. Though light in body and color, its prominent hoppiness and radiant yellow “straw” color sets it apart. As you taste Kolsch 45, you’ll notice that the head retains prominent, pleasant aromas. Light Pilsen and Munich malt aid in the crisp, refreshing nature of this beer. Hop bitterness is present without adding a lingering resonance.

SinH4 (686) - SWITZERLAND - APR 29, 2015
Hazy golden-orange color with nice white head. Aroma is fresh, a bit fruity, yeasty. Definitely top-fermented I?d say. Taste is grainy-malty, spicy, a bit fruity. Fresh. Okay, but meh. Kölsch? Might just as well be a boring Saison.
