Lagered Ale (Kölsch)

If you want to beat the heat or change up what’s in your beer fridge, try a Kölsch.

WHY WE LOVE IT

Once upon a time, you had to travel to Köln, Germany, to sip the region’s famously dry, hoppy Kölsch ale. (The waiters who serve Kölsch keep replacing your empty glasses with full pints unless you cover your glass or ask for the bill.) Now get your hands on authentic imports and local picks at the LCBO. “It’s crisp and refreshing — a great starter beer. It’s fermented like a lager, yet it has some bitterness,” says Colin Brown, LCBO beer ambassador in Sault Ste. Marie. “I  recommend Kölsch if you want to try something different that’s not too hoppy.” 

 

YOU MAY TASTE

The smooth complexity of aged ale with a clean, easygoing finish. This light- to medium-bodied beer balances grassy hops and grapey malts.

 

SIP THEM WITH 

Savour Kölsch’s light bitterness and clean finish with a fruity summer dessert, such as a peach pie or tart.
