Kirby’s Kölsch



Brewery: Muskoka Brewery

Type:  Kölsch

Kölsch is a clear, all-barley pale ale with a bright, straw-yellow hue similar to a standard German pale lager.[1]

Kölsch is warm fermented at around 13 to 21 °C (55 to 70 °F), then conditioned by lagering at cold temperatures.[2] This style of fermentation links Kölsch with some other central northern European beers such as the Altbiers of western Germany and the Netherlands.

ABV: 4.6%

Review: The first thing I notice after the bright sunshine color is an active carbonation.  Constant bubbling happening.  It’s lively it is crisp and sharp.  A classic lager/Pilsner mouthfeel with just a hint of extra flavour to keep things Muskoka.  Another rock solid beer from them.  Probably one of theirs that I am least likely to buy again since there are a lot of other people that do beers like this- (and do it better).  I’m thinking Beaus lug tread, Grolsch, lot 9 by Creemore.  Quite nice nonetheless!
