look: 4 | smell: 4 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 4 | overall: 3.5

Serving Type: Bottle to stange like glass.

Appearance (4.0): light golden and very clear. Upon pouring has a solid white head and nice carbonation action. However, the head does dissipate somewhat quickly.

Smell (4.0): Smells similar to a dortmunder, in that it has a slight white wine smell to it.

Taste (3.5): Taste good but maybe slightly underwhelming. I'd consider it session-able in that the taste would go with most anything.

Mouthfeel (4.0): Nothing wrong here.

Overall (3.5): Though most of my categorical scores were 4.0, I feel like this one only deserves a 3.5. Everything is solid but it seems to be a bit underwhelming.

Poured into a stange from the bottle, may have been slightly old. No skunk flavor, so at least it was taken care of.

Pours a crystal clear yellow with a large head that dissipated quite quickly.

The fragrance of this beer was lacking, but appropriate for a Kolsch. Pale malts, noble hops. Nothing more, nothing less.

Taste is sweet, with a slight bitter noble hop taste initially, and the beer finishes dry. Very refreshing. A great summer beer.

I imagine on tap the mouthfeel would be far better, or in a newer bottle. Great beer, great light taste. Basically a pilsner ale.

500ml Bottle

Reissdorf Kolsch poured a clear pale gold with a short white head that produced minimal lacing. The nose is mild, and clean with aroma of light fruit. The flavor is; pleasant, crisp, clean and refreshing. Light fruit, pears and green apples dominate with a hint of hops in the background. Mouth feel is very light and crisp with effervescent fizzy bubbles.

Reissdorf Kolsch is a very easy drinker that before you realize you have consumed the entire bottle.

Enjoyed this 12oz bottle out of a large snifter glass.

A: Pours a clear golden hue with a 3-finger, white, frothy head that slowly dissipates down the glass and ends in a solid lace.

S: Crisp and clean malty aroma with a slight hop scent.

T: Malty flavor with a slight tart bitter hop flavor. Finishes on the dry side of tart.

M: Medium body and medium carbonation.

O: Not a huge fan of Kolsch but this was by far the best I have tried. Wouldn’t grab it again but glad I tried it.
