Consumed 9/28/17

A: Medium gold - crystal clear - pours with a medium size, bright white head, fades to a few wisps of a cap, maintains a small collar, leaves some streaks of lacing

S: Mild aroma - lightly bready and grainy - mostly pale, just a hint of caramel grain - moderately hoppy, for the style, and distinctively German - grassy with some spice - hint of pepper - some yeast

T: Clean and refreshing - grainy and lightly bready - clean pilsner malts - low sweetness overall - lightly grassy - some hints of yeast - touch of minerality and very light touch of fruit - very clean

M: Light body, medium carbonation, crisp

O: If you stare at this beer long enough, it drinks itself

Some consider Reissdorf Kölsch to an exemplar of the style. And I understand why. I don't think I've had an American-brewed Kölsch that quite reaches the cleanliness of this one... Although some definitely come close. The style may not be my favorite, but if you are looking for a Kölsch, this is not to be missed.

Pours a pale golden. Very bright. Some white wine aroma. It tastes like buttered bread. Not in a diacetyl-y way. Just that delicious buttered bread you eat way too much of before the nice meal you paid for.

L: Clear gold with a creamy white head. Moderate retention, excellent lacing.

S: Toasted white bread and biscuits with honey, sweet red apple, grass, lager-like crispness and cleanness.

T: Toasted white bread drizzled with honey upfront, followed by a very light grassy bitterness, a big sweet red apple note, and a crisp, clean finish.

F: Surprisingly medium-bodied, well rounded and filling with ample carbonation.

O: My first experience with a kolsch, and I enjoy it.

Always up for a Kolsch.

This one pours a clear pale yellow with a strong and lasting nearly pure white froth. Has a subtle aroma of dry straw, grain and lemon zest. Tastes of faint orange and lemon mixed with grain and faint hops. Has a soft and mellow core and finishes of dry and crisp.

The real deal.
