Another classic German Style from Occidental, a brewery that proves that you don’t need to throw hundreds of pounds of fruit or hops or …. freaking donuts into the brew kettle in order to make a good beer. This brewery specialialized in simple beers brewed with tradition and they nail this light German ale almost perfectly. Pours brilliant golden with an aroma of honey bread and spicy hops. The flavor is almost spot on to what one would expect in Cologne. There is a touch of sweetness right off the top with notes of honey and biscuit and a touch of fruitiness. The spice German hops lead to a dry, mineral finish and make this a super refreshing option for something on the lighter side with a little extra flavor as well.
