Share This Review

Der Chancellor is a German-style Kölsch brewed by Tequesta Brewing Co., and for the purposes of this craft beer, the lager was served in a pilsener glass from a bottle.


Pours a crystal-clear gold with a thin head of bubbly white froth that persists briefly. A steady stream of bubbles rises in the glass.


Aroma consists primarily of ester-borne honey and apple with a suggestion of floral hops.


A clean palate follows much the same. Beginning with noble hops, the taste transitions to sweet apple before finishing with a mild bite of lemon and peppery hops. An undercurrent of bready malt ties it all together.


Crisp mouthfeel has a light body with ample carbonation.


Overall, the Der Chancellor is easy to drink and makes for a nice refresher on those hot summer days.

About the Kölsch

The Kölsch is a top-fermenting lagered beer that originated in Cologne, Germany, in the 19th century to combat the proliferation of bottom-fermented pale lagers. Its color is a pale gold with excellent clarity. Medium-light to medium body that’s well-attenuated with a slightly crisp and dry finish. Malt flavor is bready and often slightly sweet. Traditional German hops lend a floral, spicy or herbal character with a bitterness ranging from low to moderate. The balance between malt and hops can vary widely. Alcohol level is sessionable. Should be consumed fresh.
