Columbia-Kölsch-Style Ale

Ice Harbor

Kennewick, WA

Style: Kölsch

Alcohol: 5%

IBUs: 20

Serving style: kegs and 12 oz. cans

Availability: Year-round in much of Washington


Appearance:   “Light golden color. Fluffy white head that calms down quickly.”

Aroma:   “Lemony and floral. There’s some hoppiness evident in the background.”

Taste:   “To me it has a nice balance of malt and hops. They’re both in there, but the taste finishes pretty dry and crisp.”

Food Affinity;   “Well, with that umlaut, Kölsch must be a German-style beer and I’ll bet that the crispness would offset the sweet fattiness of pork dishes like pig knuckle, but also would work with (not-overcooked) barbecued ribs. Otherwise, I like the idea of drinking this beer with battered fish.”
