Brewers Description of :
“SommerBrau is a Kölsch style beer. Kölsch literally means the beer of Cologne, Germany. This beer style is a light bodied beer fermented using a special top fermenting yeast strain, which we import specially from Germany, brewing it true to style. It is brewed with 80% pale-malted barley and 20% malted wheat. The pinpoint bitterness of the German Tettnang hops and crisp finish make this beer perfect for summertime enjoyment: it is available seasonally from May through July.”Our Review:
The golden appearance of Gordon Biersch summer beer SommerBrau is slightly hazy with a decent frothy head and an aroma that is mildly composed of wheat, malt, and floral scents. Tasting exposes a semi-sweet almost neutral beginning with light malt base, hoppy drag, and a touch of honey. The hoppy tartness of SommerBrau expands toward the back with a real earthy tone.
SommerBrau is an excellent summertime beer. It is an unmistakable kolsch style beer which is crisp and refreshing. It is light with a good level of carbonation. Gordon Biersch summer beer is a great choice for your next summer vacation.
