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.

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.
