Homebrew YAK (Yet Another Kolsch)

I’ve been to Cologne, Germany a few times (Ford engineering offices there), and enjoyed some true German Kolsch.  The atmosphere of course is part of it, but I have been trying in vain to recreate the beer that my memory has put on high.  I haven’t gotten there yet, but this is another iteration on my journey.  I pretty much changed up everything from last time I made it.

Sweet aroma, slightly tart & crisp bite at first taste, which mellows quickly into a slightly sweet malt taste.  Finishes with slight hop aftertaste.
