Though this compared favorably to a wide range of Kölsch styles tasted at AHA, it seems to have a slightly over-bitter aftertaste in the bottles opened soonest after lagering in the basement. More mature had a smoother finish. I would suggest, and will try, a change to the bittering hops next time. BTW, the Yard Destroyer has calmed down - he eats only squirrels now.

Looking for a Kolsch recipe, and this has the best name origin I have seen. A jackass dog, AKA the "Yard Destroyer". I'm gonna use this recipe just because of the name. Let ya know how it goes. Thanks.
