German style with a Yorkshire twist! We acquired some authentic Weyermann Pilsner and Vienna malt as well as a stash of "proper" German Spalt hops to give our brew at least a semblance of authenticity, but then we went and ruined it by adding American Crystal hops at flame-off (as well as more Spalt)... Kölsch is generally only hopped once, at the start of the boil, so by first-wort, 60, 30, 5 and flame-off hopping we kind of gave that one a bit of a kicking straight off! We plead, however, that Crystal hops are vaguely allowed on account of them being part Hersbrucker (and part Cascade too, admittedly)...

Hand bottled via Gazza (RBESGG2011, Grand Tasting)
Pale and cloudy, skummy head. Milky aroma. Light grains in the body, but a bit plasticky. Good bitter hop finish. Comes over as a bit of a gutless golden ale.

Fin (9684) - Merton, Oxfordshire, England, Oxfordshire, ENGLAND - SEP 2, 2011
Bottle consumed with Gazza and my dad 01.09.11, cheers Gazza for bringing this along Pours with a huge billowing white head that slowly settles down, it’s a sort of overipe lemony colour with a very slight haze. Quite soft mouthfeel, dryness soon becomes apparent. This is citrussy though with a nice level of sweetness coming through, nice beer. As Gazza said a pint of this on a nice day would go down a treat. A7 A4 T8 P4 Ov15 3.8
