This is a delightful Kolsch, full of flavor and with a nice clean finish. Appearance-wise it looks like a pilsener but once you place under your nose you immediately realize it's a Kolsch (and a good one in fact). Probably my favorite example of this beer style.

Presentation: It was poured from a brown 500 ml bottle into a tall pilsner glass. There appears to be no abv printed on the label.

Appearance: The body is very clear with some visible carbonation and it has a bright golden yellow color. This is topped off with an average white foam head. The fades quickly leaving a wispy thin film layer that sets up at the edge of the glass and makes some lacing.

Smell: As I was pouring I was getting lots of floral and botanical hop notes with just the slightest touch of citrus. This is backed up by light pilsner like maltiness.

Taste / Palate: The flavor matches the aroma but with the light bready/cracker like maltiness up front and the hops finishing up. Overall it’s fairly clean and crisp. It finishes dry and the palate is light and refreshing.

A: Golden, crisp appearing Kolsch, with a nice bloom, which lingers for some time.

S: Malty like most of the style, but with nice herbal undertones.

T: Delicious, refreshing beer. Lovely hop to malt ratio. Some faint notes of vanilla?

M: Typical of style. Smooth, but not unsubstantial.

O: One of my favorite examples of this style, Reissdorf Kolsch is usually a very good value. I am usually able to find it for $3 to $4 for a 500ml bottle.

500ml bottle.

T: Slightly metallic, crisp, yeasty with clean malts, faintly fruity.

M: Light body and medium carbonation. Finishes dry and yeasty.
