Varietal Definition
Kölsch is an appellation for a beer style originally brewed in the Köln area before the lagering revolution. Again, like an Altbier or Steam beer, it is warm fermented and then aged at cold temperatures. Kölsch is characterized by a golden color and slightly dry, winey and subtly sweet palate. This style should have a light body, with a low hop flavor and aroma with medium bitterness.
