Located along the Rhine river lies the city of Köln, Germany. Travel there and you'll find a refreshing beer they call Kölsch. This Ale beer is a staple and the people that live there are fiercely loyal to this style. After WWII this specific style was adopted by the city of Köln to be their own style. Kölsch beer is a pale, not sweet but not bitter ale that has a golden color and although it uses top fermenting yeast it's lageredafter fermentation to produce the clear and balanced flavor its famous for. Using one or 2 different malts and moderate amount of noble hops creates its light taste. Kölsch can be considered the original “Session Beer”!
