look: 5 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4 | feel: 4.25 | overall: 4.25
11.2 oz bottle poured into a Hinterland stange.
A - Reissdorf's long-lasting rocky white head crumbles away to a pile of creamy foam leaving chunky lace adorning the glass above the crystal clear golden yellow beer.
S - Subtle hints of noble hop varieties and their light floral characteristics greet the nose in tandem with soft mineral water accents which brighten the clean pale malt base. A pinch of apricot and dried mango add just the slightest fermentation character to the finish of this Kölsch.
T - Red apple slice and juicy Bartlett pear take the nose's fruit nuances to a new level, opening the flavor with a surprising punch. The pale malt base is soft and sweet, almost more pilsner-like than grainy base malt.
M - Soft and smooth, this Kölsch almost feels like wheat is in play with it's velvety feel. It's not crisp and clean like many other varieties. Instead, it lingers with an understated dryness and moderate carbonation tickle.
O - Between the bold fruit attributes of this Kölsch and it's softer Bohemian pilsner-like feel, this Kölsch exemplifies the difference each brewery has for this style but I personally enjoy the more crisp, clean versions a little more.

3.48/5 rDev -9.8%
look: 3.5 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.25 | overall: 3.5
Appearance: Extremely clean look. Transparent very pale yellow golden color. Finger and a half of head on the pour. Above average active carbonation in the glass while drinking.
Smell: Aromas of straw and hay hit the nose first. Sweet soft malt backbone is picked up but takes a back seat. Light tropical fruits compliment the straw tones very well.
Taste: Easy going biscuity malt front greets the drinker. That sweetness carries over into the body which adds some fruit and very mild bitterness. Bready finish that leaves a light pleasant sweetness behind.
Mouthfeel: Some lingering malt tones on the finish. Super easy drinking.
Overall: A simple yet well crafted beer. Biscuity malt is prevalent with some fruitiness to add a bit of complexity. Really easy beer to sit back, relax, and just enjoy.
