Ploughman's Ale

This ale is somewhere between a Kölsch and a Northern German Alt. It's slightly darker than a Kölsch, but not as dark as an alt. This is also a SMaSH beer meaning single-malt, single-hop.

I want this beer to be crisp and clean with a little more hop bite than the typical Kölsch.

On to the recipe.
