Kölsch is a beer brewed in Cologne, Germany. It is a clear, top-fermented beer with a bright, straw-yellow hue similar to other beers brewed from mainly Pilsener malt.

- Brewer

The Kolsch is a style quite similar to a pilsner however instead of being brewed with a bottom fermenting lager yeast the brewers use ale yeast.  Similar to a California Common the Kolsch is a hybrid style, although it uses ale yeast it is still fermented at low temperatures which provides some light fruity character like apple or pear but more restrained than a typically fermented ale.
