The classic style from Cologne, named after the most famous rock band to write their lyrics in Kölsch. This warm filtered ale is cold conditioned so it takes on the characteristics of a lager.

The_Osprey (6556) - Richmond, Greater London, ENGLAND - APR 16, 2016
Bottle share at Canary Wharf, many thanks to Leighton. As Urban Chestnut BAP. Clear pale yellow, lightly sparkling, big foamy white head. Aroma is green apple, lager mustiness, a touch sour maybe. Body is light, tingly carbonation, foamy. Taste is apple, cracker malt, touch sweet, buttery, no real bitterness. An insipid sweet and simple beer with no punch. (2.4)

thegreenrooster (4030) - St.louis, Missouri, USA - AUG 19, 2015
Pour is a clear yellow with a large fizzy white head. Aroma is a nice doughy cereal malt. Like fresh baked bread. Flavor is a fresh lager grainy malt with a nice grassy hop and a ever so slight touch of citrus tartness. This was a very nice kolsch. A much heavier body that others of the style but drinks incredibly clean. If this was the next beer to come out in 4 packs I would have to pick some up.
