My Best Friend's Girl - Kolsch Style Ale
Kolsch is a pretty cool style. It's origins are found in Cologne Germany where Kolsch pubs & breweries are literally everywhere. Each one does their own take on the style, and there is a surprising amount of variability brewery to brewery with this simple, drinkable beer. Each brewery usually only brews the one beer, so when you walk in, you'll get served Kolsch before asking for a drink. Why else would you be at a brewery? Bam. Kolsch in your face. The bar staff keep the Kolsch rolling until you say stop, and mark on your coaster how much you owe at the end of your session. It's an amazing experience.
Traditionally served in Stange glasses, slender, narrow, delicate glassware; the style is characterized by light pome fruit notes (pear, apple), gentle doughy malt, and a crisp, dry finish. If you ever find yourself in Cologne, we strongly recommend dedicating at least a day seeing how many different Kolsch bars you can hit by foot before sundown. Mike's personal record is 8... or was it 9?
