New World Kolsch
|A Kiwi take on the German Kolsch style. The city of Cologne is known for its crisp, clean, refreshing golden ales that combine elements of lager and ale brewing techniques. We have taken the style and have injected some fruity New Zealand hops into the equation making for an unmistakably pacific tinged interpretation of the style. Kolsch style beers are popular in the brewpubs of North America where American brewers have taken their love of big hops and have introduced their own hop varieties into the style. We have taken our cue from the American brewers and have used two Nelson grown hop varieties Pacific Jade and Pacifica to give Pacific Blond a lightly herbal, citrus edge.|
Aromas of nutty malt, hay and herbal hops combine before a crisp dry palate with lemony hop notes and a long dry finish.
