Sierra Nevada Brewing (Chico, CA)
"From Cologne to California, Kölsch-style beers are a favorite around the world. These light-bodied beers share the expressive character of an ale with the crisp, clean finish commonly found in lager beers. For our stamp on the style, Kölsch has a blast of floral and citrusy American and European whole-cone hops. This beer contains wheat malt to maintain the legendary drinkability of a classic Kölsch but adds a nod to our American brewing heritage and our love of hop flavor."

Try as I might, I just don't "get" this style. Not bad, but so unremarkable. Perhaps on a 90+ degree summer day, served ice cold after doing yardwork ...
