An enthusiastically top cropping, lager-like ale strain from the Kolsch region. It is lightly fruity, crisp and clean, accentuating hop flavors well. Sulfur disappears with age. Kolsch (OYL-017) ferments colder than Kolsch II (OYL-044), is powdery and slow to drop clear (filtering recommended). Kolsch II is a little easier to manage.
