Do you want to make a good lager, but it cannot be achieved without refrigeration equipment? Try a Cologne beer!
History
Cologne beer (pronounced "koelsch") is a beer specially made by a brewery in Cologne (or Cologne moved to an English-speaking country). This beer style has existed for centuries, but it was not until Cologne that the Sünner Bünner brewery marked it as such in 1918. In the 1930s, at least 40 breweries produced Cologne beer. Unfortunately, the world war destroyed the Cologne beer industry in Germany, leaving only two breweries.
Since the EU’s special protection of Cologne in 1997, only 14 breweries have legally produced Cologne. This restriction is an extension of the 1986 Cologne Convention. The "Cologne Convention" stipulates that Cologne must be brewed in Cologne, light-colored, and top-fermented (Al-Aer), with a strong hop flavor and a filtering process. In short, this is a pale Ayer from Cologne.
This beer culture is also unique. People of all economic strata like beer. Karl Marx said that his revolution will never be held in Cologne because the workers and the bosses drink together. The beer is so anti-class that the brewery has agreed that Cologne did not carry "special", "extra" or other attachment labels when it was sold. Cologne beer is even welcomed by women.
But it tastes like lager!
Cologne is a kind of ale that tastes like Rag. If you give a glass of Cologne to beer drinkers who will not distinguish, it is very common to mistake this beer as a raga. It tastes very soft. It has a bit of sweetness, no malt aroma, and a very dry aftertaste. Some Cologne beer has a little fruity flavor, but it is very slight. Any fruity taste in beer is very subtle.
No hops aroma, hops flavor is very small. Low ester content, no diacetyl. These beers are usually between 4% and 4.5% alcohol volume fraction. The beer style guide lists alcohol levels of 4.4 - 5.2% alcohol, but I do drink a little lower than this range. The color of beer is wheat straw (3.5-7 SRM). Cologne is similar to the American Golden Al, but the aftertaste is more fresh and crisp.
Some commercial examples include Reissdorf, Gaffel, Alaska Summer Ale, and Harpoon Summer Beer Sünner Kölsch. The American version is "Cologne style" because it cannot be called "Cologne."
