About Kölschlsch Beer:
Kölsch is a local beer specialty, brewed in Cologne, Germany. It is a clear beer with a bright straw-yellow hue, and it has a prominent, but not extreme, hoppiness. It is less bitter than the standard German lager beer, Pils. Furthermore, Kolsch is top-fermented at a relatively warm temperature (13 to 21C, or 55 to 70F) and then cold-conditioned, or lagered.
This manner of fermentation links Kölsch with some other beer styles of central northern Europe, such as the Altbiers of northern Germany and the Netherlands. The Deutscher Brauer Bund categorizes Koelsch as an obergriges Lagerbier.
