look: 4 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 4 | overall: 4.5

Golden body, high clarity, rapid streams of champagne bubbles swarm to feed two fingers of foam.

Smells fresh, clean pale malts and light fruitiness.

Main flavor is pale malt, bland wheat, a redeeming finish though. Slight residual hop in the finish, with an apple hint.

Prickly, dry mouthfeel due to moderate carbonation. Very easy to session, a fairly simple ale.

Notes: Bottle states "all malt ale" and "water, malt, hops" are the listed ingredients.

I have really been impressed with this Brazilian brewery to date and this golden or Kolsch whatever the style is also quite nice.Poured into my trusty Mackinac Island Cylinder glass a light to medium golden with a slight chilled haze to it a tight 1/2 finger white head atop wich was gone rather quickly.Very clean aromas a bit to clean for me just toastiness and a bit of residual sweetness and melon but I had to try to get that,a full mouthfeel for such a style not wimpy at all very solid and defining.A malt tilted brew in my mind on the palate somewhat toasty and firm with a hint of honey sweetness a bit of floral hop rounds out the finish.A nice after work beer after spending 8 hours in a hot kitchen,it has substance the only thing lacking in my mind is a fuller aroma still a nice beer.

Appears a honey golden tone with a white vibrant head fades quickly into nothing leaves minimal lacing all around my chalice. Aroma pale lightly toasted malts bring minimal sweetness touch of herbal hops with some floral accents pretty delicate. Flavor biscuit malts snappy hop bite grassy herbal natured of course malt finishes nice with some honey edged tones, pretty straight forward and solid golden ale. Mouthfeel is light bodied spritzy carbonation tickles the back of the throat a bit, I could use a mellower feel. Drinkability is decent but not something I would reach for regularly definitely a well made Kolsch style ale.

(Served in a strange)

A- This beer has a crystal clear golden copper body with a good carbonation of big bubbles. The thin snow-white head is creamy with not a bubble in it but fades to patches of thin film.

S- The smell of soft pale malt has a slight sweet note to it with a nice nougat note and a faint hint of corn that is quite pleasant.

T- The smooth slightly sweet pale malt flavor has a hint of honey malt and a soft sulfur sweetness. There is that great Kolsch taste that is almost like licorice but not quite. The finish is a soft green bitterness that balances out the malt flavor.

M- This beer has a medium-light mouthfeel and most of that is due to the tight fizz at the finish.

D- This beer has a light crisp good flavor with a great depth for such a light beer. This style is one of my favorites when it is done right but I rarely taste on that is done right, especially from the Americas. This is great summer time beer to enjoy at the back yard barbeque. I was surprised they label it as a golden ale but from the first sip I knew there inspiration.

Pours out a pretty thin head, despite an aggressive pour, which turns to a crown quickly. A coppery color, this is certainly a darker shade than most Kolschs I've had.

Aroma is fruity: pear, peach, lemon. And, at the risk of being repetitive, there's a little more malt presence than most Kolschs I've had.

And, wouldn't ya know it, the flavor brings in a heavier maltiness than most Kolschs I've had. But I'm not an expert on this style so maybe this is actually definitive of the style. I do know it's just what the doctor ordered for this muggy hot summer day. Lots of apple juice in the flavor, succulent white grape, caramel syrup and a wave of flowery sweetness in the finish.

Not what I expected, but better than I expected. Chalk another one up for this impressive brewery, who have yet to fail these tastebuds.

Pours out a golden (go figure) body with steady and slow bubbles. Head is thin and fizzles out after a while, leaving just a ring. Nose is so light with a faint cracker and honey thing going on. Kind of floral in the far background. Crisp, light pale malts mix with crackery wheat in the flavor. The hops have a floral and herbal quality (even giving off a touch of mint). Finishes dry. Mouthfeel is light and bubbly. Extremely refreshing and delicious. Highly drinkable. Definitely the best kolsch I have yet to try.

Came from a bottle at the bar. It poured out and settled with a golden, bronze appearance. It had a very faint smell of a fruit-like caramel aroma. That caramel aspect was definitely there in the aftertaste which was very syrupy. However, the drink is overall light before that aftertaste. It was very well carbonated and since it was light it felt drinkable. But it was that aftertaste that makes me feel this drink just did not know what it wanted to be, limiting any spectacular qualities.

Golden in color, with a very white fingers plus of head.

Smell is of malts, an a hint of tangy citrus. It's not bad, just faint.

Same with the taste: not very predominant, a little tart and malty.

Feel is average. upper light. Smooth.

An easy drinker, but desirability isn't extreme

Definitely the weakest of Eisenbahn's US offerings.

A Brazilian take on a localized German style, sounds interesting. Luminous pure gold under a quickly receding, milky white head. Subtle pear-like aroma. Soft, sweet, fruity flavor over some grain - slick sweetness holds everything together. Light and dry. This might be a little to upfront for a kölsch, but since its such an obscure style, I'll assume Eisenbahn used it as a starting point. Flavorful and light.

4.43/5  rDev +26.6%
look: 4 | smell: 4 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4 | overall: 5

Serving Type: Standard Bottle

Appearance: A beautiful golden, almost orange, colour that had little head.

Smell: A somewhat sweet smelling beer, apples perhaps? Melon? Very "crisp" smelling. On having another I also get a pineapple smell

Taste/mouthfeel: Fantastic. One of the most quaffable beers I've had. Crisp and very smooth. The tastes are all over the map w/ this one. Grapes and apples come through during the taste as does a sweet hops taste. Maybe a touch of bananas come through as well but in a great way. Upon drinking a few more beers I noticed a touch of pineapple too. Delicious

Drinkability: Fantastic. On a hot summer day(like today where I live) this is great. Very smooth and refreshing. I love this beer and will be picking up more in the future. I really wish I had picked up more than one because this is a great session beer. I could drink this all day...no problem

Edit: I'm re-reviewing this beer after trying a few more. Great tasting beer that goes down easy. Absolutely wonderful to drink and great tasting to boot.

Straight pour from 355ml bottle to stemmed tulip; best by date of July 7, 2011 printed on label

Appearance (3.0): Just barely hazy, warm golden color to the body. ½ finger head settling to almost nothing, just a slightly off-white ring of bubbles around the side of the glass and some scattered patches of head on the top. Hazier on the “disturbing” re-pour. Should be lighter, but still a decent-looking beer.

Smell (3.0): Very light lemon, light wheat—again, stronger wheat scent on the re-pour, but still pretty modest.

Taste (3.5): Lemony, again, over a soft wheat background. Mild hop note throughout, grassy and crisp. The yeast presence is minimal, this must have been a very neutral yeast. It's good, but not overly kölsch-y.

Mouthfeel (4.0): Light, clean, crisp; carbonation is light, but constant, leaving cute little bubbles across the tongue. Feels smooth and watery—no thickness, no oil.

Overall (4.0): This feels like a macro lager going down, but much tastier. That is to say, this is about as drinkable as it gets, not sustaining at all. It’s like lemony wheat beer with a super-neutral yeast strain—really not spot-on for a kölsch. This was enjoyable though, and it’s good to be reminded that not all Brazilian beers are watery AALs, and some are made with nice balance. This ought to be what all Brazilian beers are like: light, refreshing, but still tasty. Great warm weather beer.

Single bottle copped from Buy Rite on Oak Tree in south Plainfield for $2.99...
"Brazillian Golden Ale - All Malt Ale Product of Brazil" on the front logo sticker...
Nice, clear, light-copper, golden-amber appearance with a modest-sized foamy head that exhibited decent staying power before slowly dissipating and leaving a fair amount of lacing around the edge of the glass...
Sweet, earthy, grain aroma balanced with a seemingly nice suggestion of hops and malts...
Sweet, fruit and caramel-laden taste rounded out by a sugared-flavored suggestion of sweet fruits, canteloupe, and pears...
Decent, sweet mouthfeel balanced by a nice level of drinkability in part due to the lack of cloying flavors and modest 4.8% ABV...
Decent stuff and a sweet representation of the style...
Recommended...

look: 3 | smell: 2.5 | taste: 2 | feel: 2.5 | overall: 2.5

Poured from a 12oz bottle into a US tumbler pint glass.

A: The beer is a light gold color, with a thin white head that fades quickly and leaves a thin lace on the glass.

S: The aroma contains light malts, grain and a faint touch of hops.

T: The taste starts out a little bready with flavors of grain and a thin malt character that transitions into some malt sweetness. Then a very mild hops presence comes in but there isn't much balance. The after-taste is slightly sweet.

M: Crisp but not very smooth, light body, medium-to-high carbonation, finish is slightly sticky.

D: Not very tasty, goes down ok, not too filling, mild kick, not the best representation of style, this is just not a very good beer.

look: 3.5 | smell: 4 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.5

Pours dark tea-like goilen with a thin white head that vanishes to a thick ring.

The smell is bready with light floral/fruity notes.

The taste is of sweet grain and biscuity, slightly chalky notes. An appropriately (for style) restrained herbal/floral bitterness mixes with the sweetness in the somewhat crisp (though a bit too doughy) finish.

Light-bodied with a bit of a prickly fizz.

Not too crazy about the aftertaste, which has a sticky sweetnes. Still-in-all, it has a nice enough flavor while drinking it to be pretty good - and drinkable enough.

This is a decent kolsch. I've been fairly impressed with Eisenbahn so far, and this beer is no exception, though probably my least favorite as of yet (at least until I try the Defumada).

The beer pours to a yellowish gold color with an orangish tint. Thick white head with fairly weak retention that settles down to a film. Very little lacing is left as it recedes. Very little carbonation rising up from the bottom, even despite the etching in the bottom of my glass.

The smell is decent. Very clean. A hint of caramel with mostly pilsener malt and perhaps a hint of munich lending a bit of a bready aroma. Not a very estery ale, as expected from the lager fermentation temps. Just a hint of vegetal. So far, it seems right on par with what I would expect from a kolsch.

The taste is good. Very similar to what I would expect from the nose. Mostly dry with a tad bit of caramel sweetness up front. Crisp pilsener flavor with a finish of bready munich malt. Not too much in terms of hops flavor, just a very clean ale. Also a hint of a vegetal taste. Very light and easy drinking. Just enough flavor to keep it interesting without going out of style.

The body is light and crisp, though the carbonation is fairly gentle on the palate. The ABV is obviously light as well. Very clean finish with no aftertaste. Easy to drink. I doubt I would put down $12 for a sixer of this, but it was worth trying a single. I'll probably stick to the Escura if I'm going to revisit anything from this brewery, though there are still a few others to come before any revisiting is done.

Blonde-ish light gold with a nice full white head, nice active carbonation, and sporadic lace. Nice balanced grainy malt, fruity, and light hop aroma and flavor. Medium-light bodied and light creaminess.

Very impressed with this brewery since they can make my least favorite style and it's not bad...

Nice second Brazilian beer from the BOM club.

Pours a clean golden to copper color with a white head. In the aroma, a sweet maltiness and dry sugary hint. In the taste, somewhat malty and almost dry tea like. A smooth and lighter bodied mouthfeel, with a dry tea like aftertaste. Kind of like a golden ale, not huge on flavor.

look: 3.5 | smell: 3 | taste: 3 | feel: 4 | overall: 3.5

Appearance: light orange in color with a one finger head that falls apart pretty quickly.

Smell: light fruity sweetness is all that is detectable.

Taste: mild malt level with sweet green grapes, golden apples, soft grassy tones, and barely any bitterness. Very mellow flavor profile.

Mouthfeel: light in body. Lightly crisp from start to finish. Clean aftertaste.

Drinkability: easy to consume but a bit boring. This could have had a bit more crispness to improve refreshing qualities. Worth a try but there are much better beers in the style out there.

Pours a clear, dark gold color. 1/3 inch head of a white color. Poor retention and poor lacing. Smells of sweet malt, slight yeast, slight grain, slight metallic, and a hint of citrus. Fits the style of a Kolsch. Mouth feel is sharp and crisp with an average carbonation level. Tastes of slight citrus, grain, slight sweet malt, and slight yeast. Overall, average at best.

Pours out a dark golden orange with a minimal white head that drops quickly.

Smell. nice small malty sweetness with a touch of floral and some bananas.

Taste. Is richer in flavor, but still refreshing. More banana flavors come out, but i get a decent amount of sweet fresh red apples with some graininess to it. Is on the sweeter side, but not cloying. seems to also have a small touch of a spiciness and yeastiness to it.

Mouthfeel. body is crisp at a medium level. Carbonation level is high but not overly done.

Overall, a nice beer that i find changes up a good amount with the temperture. for $2 i think it is a bit excessive to think i'll get a sixpack of it, but it is still quite enjoyable.
