ABV: 4.8% | IBU: 25
This crisp, slightly dry and subtly malty brew has the delicate fruity aroma of an ale with the clean finish of a lager. Using German Noble Hops for bitterness and flavor, our definitive golden ale is fermented warm, then cold-conditioned like a lager. It uses a centuries-old yeast strain that was initially acquired after founder Tom Schlafly married his wife, who is a native of Köln, Germany—where all of the European Union’s Kölsch is brewed. Proud winner of the Gold Medal for Best German-Style Kölsch at the World Beer Cup.
