Kolsch is a German style Ale traditionally brewed in the Cologne region of Germany. This straw yellow beer is brewed with Montana grown and malted 2-row barley, 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 aroma has a very slight hint of yeast fruitiness with a touch of noble hops. 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.
