KÖLSCH: THE REAL DEAL
While touted by the New York Times as their choice for “Summer Beer of the Year,” it’s delicious to consume year round. The Kölsch Konvention of March 6, 1986, signed by 24 brewers, restricts Kölsch beers to only being brewed within the city limits of Cologne, Germany. Anything else is a copy-cat with only a vague resemblance to the original product. As it says on the can, “It’s real Kölsch only if it comes from Cologne.” Our Gaffel Kölsch, the leading Kölsch brand, is brewed kitty-corner to the famous twin-spired Cathedral of Cologne, and is the standard bearer for this top fermented ale. Dry, light-bodied, soft and smooth with a touch of sweet malt, light fruit and citrus flavours. It refreshes with a pleasant bitterness on the finish. Enjoy chilled, on its own, or with salty snacks or Tex-Mex cuisine. It’s a deal too. From April 1 to April 24, you can save 25 cents per can.
