Quackenbush Blonde

Our German style ale is brewed substantially similar to the Kölsch ale still produced by brewers in the German city of Cologne (Köln). Made with select German malt and a touch of wheat this beer is light in body and color with a smooth mouthfeel. The use of traditional German hops provides just the right amount of balance and floral aromas to the finished brew 4.9 ABV


The nose is subtly sweet from the malt and a bit floral from the late additions of German Select hops. Very subtle aromas.

Pouring a light golden yellow with a frothy white head. The beer leaves a beautiful lacing down the glass as it’s consumed with a minimal amount of head lingering on the beer.

A light bodied brew this beer has a smooth mouthfeel from the addition of wheat and finishes very clean due to the good balance of early hop additions.

The flavors of this beer are very subdued with a slight malty sweetness and a good floral hop balance. The light-flavor of this ale make it particularly well suited as a session brew.
