Kolsch Style Ale

Kolsch is a German style Ale traditionally brewed in the Cologne region of Germany. This beer is brewed with Malteurope 2-row barley(barley grown and malted in Montana!!), malted white wheat, and noble hops. It is fermented at a lower temperature (for an ale) and lightly hopped to create a very delicately balanced beer.
The appearance is a nice straw yellow. The aroma has a very slight hint of yeast fruitiness with a touch of noble hops. The flavor is very crisp. There is a mild hop bitterness that is in no way over powering. The body is smooth, crisp and light due to the high attenuation; yet it retains some malt and wheat character.
This is an ale but it has strong resemblance of a light lager. It could be considered the Pilsner of Ales.
