The Kölsch style was developed in the 1800s in Cologne as an alternative to the bottom-fermenting lagers taking over the brewing industry in Germany. Best consumed fresh, this lagered ale offers subtle malt and hop aromas reminiscent of honey and pear, with light citrus notes. The name, Naked, plays on the stripped down flavours of this authentic-tasting example of the style.
