COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
While known for their lagers, German brewers also produce terrific ales. French Broad’s Kölsch is faithful to the great German ales found in Köln. Golden in color, with a refreshing crispness, pleasantly sweet malt finish, and distinctive German hopping.

Draft to taster at French Broad during RBWG. Looks good for the style; a transparent gold with foamy white head. Smells of dough, mild hops, and lager yeast. Tastes like it smells with a nice, clean mouthfeel. A nice easy drinker.
