Country:  Germany

Style:  Kolsch

ABV: 4.8%

IBU:  20

Brewery:  Privatbrauerei Gaffel Becker

Glass:  Stange Glass

Tasting Notes:  Brewed in the only city that can legitimately call their beer Kolsch, Gaffel Kolsch is probably the best-known.  This warm-fermented, then cold lagered beer is straw coloured and has aromas of cereal and citrus.

Although the proper glass is a stange, my favourite way to drink Kolsch is in a meter of beer (a wooden shelf consisting of 10-12 beer glasses delivered to your table).
