look: 4.5 | smell: 4 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 5

Appearance is clear yellow-orange with a nice off-white that is rather restrained but settles into a thin ring around the edge of the glass for the duration. Aroma is a complex mixture of flowery noble hops and malt that reminds me of graham crackers or crunchy ginger snaps. Taste is bursting with that same yummy malt that dances nicely with the noble hops. Medium mouthfeel also has a "mineraly" feel to it that leaves a semi-dry finish but the malt and hops still linger long enough for me to savor these wonderful flavors. Hop bitterness is also medium which put everything together spells balance. Right were a kolsch should be. With a restrained ABV of under 5% this makes a great session brew for hot summer days on the lake or beach. I've enjoyed this brew from a bottle many times but it's really something special on tap.

Serving type: on-tap

Surprisingly amazed at how tasty and smooth this beer is. Any BMC drinker would be completely blown away by Reissdorf Kolsch because it's somewhat similar to the flavors found in your typical cheapo Adjunct Lager, but a million times better. T

The richness and balance of flavor is truly superb. The color is brilliantly light yellow with a nice head, and the flavor/aroma is full of rich grain and smooth hops. High carbonation and light body. The drinkability is perfect. A very fine example of a Kolsch and really, awesome brewing in general .

Poured from a 500 ml undated bottle into a Reissdorf Kolsch glass.

Created a tall head with a vigorous pour. Clear straw color.

Fresh delicate aroma. Mildly metallic. I got a whiff of "feet" as it warmed.

Crisp "puckery" flavor. Nicely balanced. Smooth dry finish.

Mildly "prickly" mouthfeel. Smooth slippery swallow.

Very drinkable. Refreshing, cleansing.
