A clean, crisp, delicately-balanced beer usually with a very subtle fruit and hop character. Subdued maltiness throughout leads into a pleasantly well-attenuated and refreshing finish. Freshness makes a huge difference with this beer, as the delicate character can fade quickly with age. Brilliant clarity is characteristic.
Characterized in Germany as a top-fermented, lagered beer. Each KÃ¶ln brewery produces a beer of different character, and each interprets the KÃ¶lsch Konvention slightly differently. Allow for a range of variation within the style when judging. Note that drier versions may seem hoppier or more bitter than the IBU specifications might suggest. Due to its delicate flavor profile, KÃ¶lsch tends to have a relatively short shelf-life; older examples and imports can easily show some oxidation defects. Served in KÃ¶ln in a tall, narrow 200ml glass called a Stange.
