Notes

Copy of Spring Kölsch, same grain bill, totally different hop profile, going for more fruity flavor with Citra and Crystal hops.

The mango aroma and flavor from the citra hops should be a really interesting match for the honey and smokey notes the Kölsch yeast imparts.

This is a good beer. Great with Pizza or a Hamburger on a hot day. Grandma liked it!!! :)
