Tasting notes #28: Kölsch

September 22, 2012

Aroma is fruity in a tropical way, mango and passion fruit, this character comes through in the taste too and dominates the soft grassy bitterness with its fruity sweetness. The hops used in the recipe came with a Brewferm Kölsch kit so no idea what they actually are, not similar to Saaz at all.  Also the yeast (Brewferm Top Ale) came with the same kit (the grain I used in an earlier brew) and is a cracker although it does not leave a tight sediment in the bottle but floats up. Perhaps the fruitiest beer I have brewed and the yeast definitely gets used again next summer.
