Kölsch by Hoyne Brewing in British Columbia, Canada

About Kölsch by Hoyne Brewing

The efforts to make this as authentic as possible are remarkable: from Germany, Hoyne has imported Pilsner Malt from Durst Malts of the Hallertau region; they employ a specialized Kölsch yeast that ferments cool like a lager, but is actually a top-fermenting yeast, making it a true hybrid; they then age it cold in our cellar for a prolonged period of time, again like a lager.

Technically speaking, Kölsch is an Ale – but this conventional Kölsch process, which dates back to the early 17th century, delivers a bright and clear beer, with a straw-yellow hue that is endlessly drinkable and a perfect addition to our line-up of pilsner-style beers.4

Taste: Hints of white wine, gooseberries, a touch of honey, and subtle floral hops followed by a softly balanced malt background.
