Red Spark is a clear, crimson, Kölsch-style ale with a delicate, creamy-white head.
An easy-drinking lagered ale, similar in flavour to complex pale lagers, Red Spark offers aromas of apple and pear, with hints of fresh herbs and honey. Its moderate bitterness is nicely balanced by its restrained sweetness, making it the perfect beer for sunny afternoons on the dock or warm evenings by the fire.
Reminiscent of the red and white flag of Cologne from where Kölsch ale originates, the beer takes its name from Cologne’s Rote Funken (Red Sparks), soldiers who wore bold red uniforms and served on behalf of the city state up until the 18th century.
