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.

A: Pours a clear pale yellow under a one-inch thick pillowy white head which fades to a thin cap and rim leaving semi-rings and spots of lace.

N: Yeast, slight farmhouse, lemony citrus, bready malt is faint and not sweet.

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

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

O: Clean and crisp and refreshingly simple.

7 /12 - Back again. This time the dry crispness makes this a great summer quaff. I since learned that Kolsch style brews are meant to be served in smaller than usual sizes. Be sure to guzzle the first half as the colder the better, but it won't fail to impress.

05/15/12 On tap at Rattle n Hum, NYC. Nice & Clean with a full body. Good taste.

Out of a 11.2oz bottle at Mellow Mushroom in Fayetteville, NC. Poured into a rocks glass.
Decent head retention, even in the rocks glass. Poured a very clear yellow. Very crisp mouthfeel, slight sweetness. Low malt flavor. The crispness, hop profile, and even flavor was very suggestive of a Pilsner, dispite this being a Kolsch.
Really good beer. Easy going down. Expensive; Mellow had it at $1.32/oz
