Tasting Notes: Hand crafted in small batches in the tradition of the top-fermented "white" (Wiess) beers of Cologne. A bit hazy in appearance, it offers full flavour and aroma as it is an unfiltered living product. Conditioned in the bottle. Best enjoyed when stored cold and drunk fresh. Pure delight, sip after sip.

Producer Details: Opened in 2018 by Ulli Schiefelbein, whose professional background is as a specialist in the Rule of Law. Essentially this means teaching judges and police officers, especially in less developed countries, about the principles of justice. Around six years ago he found himself in Baghdad without a ready supply of good beer and decided that he would just have to brew his own. By his own admission, Ulli's early attempts at homebrewing were not at all successful, but, as he points out, yeast isn't very happy at 46 degrees Celsius. Undeterred, Ulli set out to learn everything he could about how to brew successfully, even in those quite challenging conditions, leading him eventually to completing an IBD Diploma in Brewing. A year ago he found himself settling in Suffolk with his wife and decided to step up from a 50 litre homebrew kit to a 240 litre microbrewery. Ulli explained that it has taken him a year to work his way around all the legal requirements, only now being ready to release his beer commercially.

The beer itself is broadly in the kolsch style, although it is based on a pre-war recipe. This means that it contains some wheat malt, and it is unpasteurised, unfined and unfiltered, unlike the kolsch that is brewed by most commercial breweries in Cologne in modern times.
