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)

    Light gold color. Small head. Aroma is grainy, fruity and malty. A medium bodied Kolsch. Malts are mild and slightly fruity. Hops are mildly spicy. Nicely balance and flavorful, this is a very nice Kolsch. Slightly sprizty. Light and refreshing. Mouthfeel is full and round. Finish is clean. Aftertaste is slightly sweet.

    On tap at Boon’s Treasury in Salem, Oregon. Nice enough looking pint..a hazy golden , strw colour,small white splotchy head. Pretty subdued aroma..the scent there is is very floral. A nice malty statse to begin then the floral acspects of the beer show through, very fruity almost reminds me of peaches.Then there is a small hop aftertaste. Not to bad on the palate, thin enough to be drunk in large quantities but not watery. I found this very drinkable indeed..one of MacMenamins better brews IMO
