Open windows, warm breeze, blooming flowers—and Otter Creek’s Spring Ale, Kölsch style from Trader Joe's. As clear, crisp and refreshing as a mild spring day, this tasty beer will quickly disappear from your refrigerator. Like any classic Kölsch, Otter Creek’s spring ale is a simple, light beer with a balanced effervescence and easy grassy flavor
Otter Creek’s kölsch shares many characteristics of a light white wine. Soft fruit, a light, buttery body, gentle hops and a clean, dry finish are just what spring calls for in a beer. Very drinkable, a six-pack stands little chance of survival after a hot afternoon of lawn mowing.
Celebrate spring with a beer made in its honor. Otter Creek’s Spring Ale kölsch is a powerful thirst quencher. Its subtle notes of sweetness, hops, fruit and grain are as renewing as the spring wind.
