Clear lightest yellow gold with soapy head. A: fresh and crisp malty character, citrus note, lightest wood note, grassy. T: taste is quite thin but refreshing. Maltiness develops alongside bitterness, again some grassy floral notes. Subsequent sips have a sweeter character. Nice deep lager bitterness in the finish.

Bottle: The aroma consists of mild bread, grass, fruit, and faint apple. It pours a transparent gold with a small white head that settles to a thin film outlined by a slightly thicker ring. There is minimal lacing left on the sides of the glass. The flavor starts with mild bread with some faint fruit. The finish has light grass, straw, and a hint of apple skins. It’s light bodied with moderate carbonation.

Tap from source in Cologne. Crisp lemon, malt and spice. Lacing coats glass as it goes. Slight urine and funk in the taste with clinging floral and spice.

The beer has a simple pilsener look. The color of the beer is a beautiful golden yellow. The beer is crystal clear. On top of the beer there is a nice layer of soft foam. The beer has a simple smell. I smell some lovely bitter hop aromas and a nice sweetnes of the malts. The balance is very good. The taste is pretty much the same. It’s just a nice beer, easy drinkable. Good.

Still not my favorite style, this one has hard to find flavors. Also drinks less well than other kolsch beers.

On Tap at Prost, Boise Another crystal clear golden beer with at frothy bright white head. More bready and mild than the Reissdorf, but still a smooth light malty beer. More of a dusty or unfiltered feel t the end.
