Paddy O Kolsch (5.5%)
A Kolsch is a light style of German beer that was officially "defined" in the 1980s. In the European Union, Kolsches have a protected geographical indication (like champagne), and must be produced in Cologne, Germany. This protection does not extend to the Americas, and many American breweries brew this style quite frequently.
This Kolsch in particular has a slightly floral taste, reminiscient of hay or grass. It is very lightly hopped, and light, crisp, and refreshing.
Musically, a light and ambient generative piano accompanies this one. Like the beer, it is folky and light, and harmonically we never really give weight to a home key. This simple musical ambience also pays tribute to the great composers Germany has produced: Bach, Beethoven, Handel, Strauss, and even Hans Zimmer for example.
