COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
As fun, popular and whimsical as the annual local music festival, Kölschella is a Kölsch light golden hybrid ale which is fermented warm and then lagered to produce a crisp, clean, and refreshing ale. Kölschella is light in body with a very pale straw color, adorned with a whipped cream like head. Our Kölsch has moderate bitterness due to the additions of spicy imported German Noble hops such as Hallertauer Mittelfrüh, Tettnanger, and Spalter Select. A somewhat vinous (grape-y from German wheat and pilsner malts) carry through to create a squeaky clean dry finish, we have found this to be one of the most sessionable year round beers in our lineup.

Draft. Pours gold with a white head. Grainy base, a little corny sweetness, very low bitterness, and a quick nondescript finish. Fine.

A crisp herbal aroma and cereal maltiness, with just a hint of fruity and tart. Enjoyed more than expected.

Bottle. Pours a clear golden color with a foamy head. Aroma of citrus, light fruit and herbal. Taste of citrus, light fruit and trace of malt sweetness. Nice bitterness and a clean finish. Light body, crisp and quite refreshing. Nice beer but a tad much on the citrus.

11th May 2016, 22oz bottle shared with my wife while on holiday in California. Poured into Corsendonk badged stemmed tulip glasses. Cloudy body, dirty orange in colour with a full white head. Half Kolsch, half Wheat beer is where my thoughts went as we sniffed and sipped this beer in the warm afternoon sun. Refreshing and different, not sure I could have had the whole 22oz’s though.

Great for our fricking hot desert zone. This is a light beer yes crystal clear and fuzzy yes. But something so much more that a bud or coors...it is called malts my friends. Not big dark malts just perfect amount of light malts for flavor and then quaffffffff.

Excellent example of a Kolsche. Crystal clear great carbonation. Noble hop aroma slightly bitter taste super dry crisp finish.

Pretty good. Sticks it on the style points. Easy to drink and totally what I was expecting. Not normally a kölsch fan, but this satisfies.

Love the name of this. OK, my bar is set pretty high for Kolsch. Hmm. Here we go. The 22oz bomber pours with a slightly hazy deep gold body that supports a dirty white head of foam. The aroma offers up a bit of fruity esters, malts, vague mineral to earthy spicy hoppiness and then a mild breadiness in there somewhere too. The taste turns this in the right direction. It has fairly crisp punchy hops that come across as bitter noble hops that have a floral to an earthy spicy to a thin lime like sensation to them. Behind the hops lurk mild malts that have a slight cracker sensation. This is tasting pretty Kolsch-y. I like the light non sweet body and crisp hops. Solid.
