Ballast Point California Kölsch

Ballast Point California Kölsch has a a crispness that is prevalent in pilsners

For this German version of the pale ale, yeast is fermented at a higher temperature, then lagered at a low temperature like a pilsner, and with a prominent but not extreme hoppiness.

At only 23 IBUs, the German hops are noticeable but not as astringent as typical American pale ales tend to be. The ale yeast adds some fruitiness, and the mixture of wheat, Munich and American malts gives a crispness that is prevalent in pilsners. It's a well-balanced hybrid of lager and ale that is both refreshing and flavorful.
