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.

Batch No. 09

Classic golden ale color, very thin, not a great amount of head - about one finger with a very vigorous pour. It smells very much like a lager, a lot of malt and I'm afraid a bit of an adjunct-like aroma. Tiny amount of citric hop presence.

This is a very quaffable golden ale, definitely light in body. The light amount of bitterness is on the low end, I certainly wouldn't mind that extra layer of complexity. Green-red apple, a little citric, and a definite adjunct flavor which is very unfortunate. It could be a lot of wheat, but it tastes like a beefed-up macro lager; only the slightest of grapevine flavors which brings down the mouthfeel as it is a little too thin for me.

Dry finish, style-appropriate. Fair carbonation, very clean and drinkable. I enjoyed it with pork and green vegetable stir fry, could be applied to many light dishes and some spicier ones as well. No points for complexity but a good session brew.

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 buy this great beer quite often. Beautiful golden colour, with a thin head but a nice lace that sticks to the glass and remains throughout consumption. It has fruity aromas and also reminders of wheat and barley. On mouth has a low bitterness, light body and some barley taste. A very round and smooth beer, great for pairing with sea food.

It's the only Kölsch beer I've ever had, so I don't have anything to compare it too, but I can say I really like this beer.

Pours a nice gold color, creating a nice head (not as thick and foamy as a hefe weizen, but still a nice head).

Smell's nice, mouthfeel is quite pleasing, and taste's good also, the wheat adds a nice touch to it. Try it if you have the chance!

Oh man. This was really a joy to me. This brewery is nowadays the best in Brazil, a little gem in the middle of some lousy macrobreweries...
This German-like beer turned into my favorite here since I started to drink it very, very often. I would say that the best about it is that it combines the complexity and flavors of the ales with the freshness and aroma of the wheat beers. This one is made from 4 different kinds of malt, including the wheat one.
The alcohol is pretty low in volume (4,8%), which, along with the wheaty flavor, makes it goddamn drinkable...

Appearance: Dark gold, very dense white head. Really something.
Smell: Fruity. Bananas, bread, barley...
Taste: Really good. Complex, refreshing, banana, malt, fruits...
Mouthfeel: It fills your mouth much better than any other refreshing beer.
Drinkability: I could drink that forever...

It matches really well with seafood, citric dishes, chicken and delicate cheeses. Recommended.

Great brew, extremely light, with a fruitty taste.

A - Really light, almost like a Pilsen, great head.

S - Fruitty smell, light hop and a bit of cereals.

T - Soft fruit, cereals and a just a bit of hop taste.

M - Pretty soft, the head is a bit too smooth, but the mouthfeel is light.

D - Damn drinkable, soft tastes, nothing too much exagerated, light smell also, goes well.

And this Kölsch must goes excellent with some light food, like fishes
Though I tasted it pure.

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.

A- light golden color with a huge fluffy white head. retention is great and it laces down the glass.

S- light sweet fruit aroma, yeast, malt, bread, grain

T- banana, malt, yeast, strong bread flavor, finish is light and smooth with just a slight hop tingle.

M- extremely smooth and slight chewy feel. light carbonation.

D- very easy to drink.

overall- got this with a beer of the month club i got as a present. VERY balanced and smooth flavor. This is the first of the style that i have reviewed, so i have nothing to go against. but with that said it is an excellent brew. if you can get ahold of it try it out.
