One of my favourite go to thirst quenching beers in this stifling Okanagan heat.
I first encountered authentic Kölsch’s in 2010 during a trip to Cologne with James and Kaya. I remember drinking a few too many and then accidentally hitting Kaya in the mouth with a 500ml bottle. Then I passed out from shame on the grass in the park. Haha, what a story Mark. Gee, I hope there was enough Room for that joke. I’m sorry Kaya.
Appearance: pale gold, bubbly, quickly dissipating head, 4.5%
Nose: sweet malt
Palate: simple, refreshing, like a nice European pilsner
Finish: light malt, more like a Canadian pilsner
Overall: it has been so long since I had an authentic Kölsch that I don’t really know how it stands up to the authentic ones…
Rating: 3/5 Good
