The ATF Sunshine Kolsch is a clean, crisp, delicately-balanced beer with a subtle fruit and NZ hop character. Subdued maltiness throughout leads into a pleasantly well-attenuated and refreshing finish. Freshness makes a huge difference with this beer as the delicate character can fade quickly with age.
Yeast is not included in the kit. We recommend using one packet of Fermentis Safale K-97 yeast.
To achieve the subtle fruit character it is important to use the recommended yeast or another German/Kolsch Ale yeast.
