Oregon Pub Crawl 2016 — photo 117 of 121: On my May 2016 visit to Zoiglhaus German Brewery & Pub, which opened in the southeastern Portland neighborhood of Lents in September 2015, I tried their Kicker Kölsch. According to the brewer:
“Brewed just like in Cologne: German Pilsner malt and wheat malt, German Magnum hops for bittering, Hallertauer hops for aroma and a spicy note. Fermented slow and cool with an authentic Kölsch yeast strain brought back from your Brewmaster’s studies in Germany.” Measurements: 4.9% ABV • 25 IBUMy notes from that day read: “Pretty good but I think I like their Lents Lager better. This has a taste I can’t identify ... a bit nutty? a bit something.... It seemed better after a few sips!” Camera used: Olympus OM-D E-M5 with Panasonic Lumix 12-35mm f/2.8 zoom lens.
