Is Kölsch yeast lager or ale?

What makes a beer a Kölsch?

Kölsch is also characterized by its slightly hoppy aroma and its well-balanced flavour.
Does Kölsch need to be Lagered?
Kölsch does not need to be lagered, but it can be. Lager yeast is a type of yeast that ferments at a lower temperature than other types of yeast. This yeast takes a little longer to ferment, which results in a smoother, cleaner flavour. Kölsch is often brewed with lager yeast, but it can also be brewed with ale yeast.
