A Kölsch-style ale brewed in German tradition, this ale pours light gold in color with a big, frothy white head. It’s deceptively simple and classic, giving those cracker notes with some malt sweetness and dancing fruity esters that give both spice and fruity essence. It begins crisp and dry, but a sweet bread with spice rises through the experience, with more fruitiness over time. The beer is primarily crisp and, but with layers of complimentary flavors, including deceptive sweet tones in the form of fruit, melon, and strawberry flavors. While many Kölsch-style ales are subtle, burying the fruitiness in the aroma, KÖLD takes a bold, yet light-bodied, approach to the style.
KÖLD is a year-round beer, sold on draft, in 6-packs, and 12-packs. Fair State Brewing Cooperative also hosts nights of traditional Kölsch service semi-regularly, which keeps glasses full, cold, and fresh through the evening.
