Beer Description:
Firefly Kolsch is truly a summer beer. It is a crisp, thirst-quenching golden ale made as true to this exceptional German style as possible. 100German malts lend a flavorful, yet surprisingly subtle malt profile. Noble hops of the Tettnanger variety deliver a distinct, yet extremely smooth hop character. At McMenamins, we are utilizing a different yeast strain in one of our seasonal brews, a German Kolsch yeast. This yeast has a unique feature; it is a hybrid of ale and lager characteristics. It retains the flavor of an ale but imparts the smoothness of a lager. This yeast is what makes this brew one of the cleanest and most refreshing tasting beers around. Collect Firefly Kolsch in a jar, glass, pint or pitcher at your local McMenamins and add a little brightness and magic to your summer evening. Starts pouring June.
Grains: Weyermann Pilsner Malt; Weyermann Light Wheat; Weyermann Vienna Malt
Hops: Tettnanger (Bittering, Flavor and Aroma)
