Terrible Swede the "Earthy" Lutheran Blog vs The Largest Filipino on Earth vs "The Fluffy"
Doctrinal differences are important to the Lutherans because at the root of every false doctrine is the devil, seeking to destroy the Gospel.

Attention: German Beer Experts!

What does 'kolsch' mean? The context is 'German Style Kolsch Bier'. Thank you.



  • The Germans call Cologne "Köln." Hence, Kölsch is an adjective describing that which comes from Köln or done in a style from the same.

    As far as what it means for beer, it's a light, top-fermenting, champaigne-like beer.

  • I hope you were hoping for a discussion because if you would have taken 3 seconds to google: "kolsch," you would have found: "Cologne's style. Golden top-fermenting, layered. Softly drinkable, with a delicate fruitiness 4.3-5.0 by volume."

    What beer did you find this description? I am intrugued, especially as I am drinking a semi-bland Michelob Amber Bock and am boring my taste buds to death.

  • Yup...a "kolsch" (damn! where's the umlaut?) is a beer from Koln, just as a Pilsener is a beer from Pilsen. They are both light, clear lagers.
