Pours a beautiful, crystal clear, golden wheat color topped by an egg-shell white head that has a soft texture and a perfect consistency. Served in a strange glass.
The aroma is a gentle hop aroma filled with fresh grass and herbs, followed by a hay-like malt aroma, which is simple yet elegant at the same time.
Reissdorf Kolsch is a perfectly-balanced beer with Noble hops up front, with a slightly bitter finish and sweet biscuit malts in the aftertaste.
Texture is excellent with a creamy mouthfeel and a lively carbonation. Finishes really smooth.
This has got to be the pinnacle of the kolsch style. Just a fantastic beer, and I wish that this was something more available in our area. I think this beer is a must try for any true beer lover. Just amazing!
Pair this beer with pretzels, landjagers and any kind of wursts!
Purchased at the Wine Source in Baltimore, MD.

3.48/5 rDev -10.1%
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.
