Köln Lager 4.8%
This multi-award-winning Köln-style Lager pours pale and golden with a fragrant herbal hop aroma. Expect lemon citrus and green apple notes with a touch of bready maltiness. The crisp bitterness makes it eminently drinkable and its low carbonation makes it light on the palate and the perfect beer to enjoy with a meal. Look for the pear drop notes from the distinctive Kölsch yeast.
Named after Christa Päffgen under her singing alias Nico (of Nico & the Velvet Underground), who was from Cologne, the city of Kölsch! An obergäriges (top-fermented) lagerbier.
"We thought that the beer was very pleasant in every way. The nose was crisp and subtle and the maltiness was restrained and provided a delicious backbone."
"Easy-drinking, slightly hazed, straw-coloured lager with a sweet bready nose and a soft textured finish. Well balanced and you can't help think but that it's been well made to show such finesse."
"The flavour is bready, with a nicely balanced sweetness and a very long finish. It would be great with food, standing up to stronger flavours."
"The aroma is herbaceous and dangerously easy to drink for an ABV of 4.8! The palate is herbal, rounded, and the mouthfeel is pleasant. We felt we could drink a fair amount of this!"
