Kölsch is a regional specialty of Cologne, Germany, and like Champagne, it is protected by “appellation controlee” or designation of origin protection, meaning that only beer from Cologne may be legally called Kölsch. Sünner is the oldest brewery in Cologne, and has been family owned and operated for six generations.

The beer itself is clear, bright straw yellow in colour, and with a prominent floral hoppiness, and a mild bitterness. The style has in the past been in direct competition with the Alt (old) style of Dusseldorf, as is one of the remaining traditional german styles of ale holding the fort against the commercial pressures of the increasing popularity of the lager style. The Kölsch style is often referred to as an hybrid ale as it is fermented with a top-cropping ale yeast strain, but at temperatures closer to that of a lager. The result is a clean tasting beer not dissimilar to a pilsner, but with more fruity esters, and a lighter bitterness.
