Kewl Day Kolsch

Source: Phil Bernie
Recipe added: 11/01/97

This beer duplicates the style extremely well. Wheat malt lends a very pleasant dryness to the finish after the initial sweet malt flavor. Lager yeast at room temperature adds a clean and refreshing palate. If you"ve ever been to Cologne or had an authentic German Kolsch you will think this one's the real deal!
