Bottle. Pours clear yellow with a small fizzy white head and some lacing. Aroma is corn, grass, biscuit, chemicals. Flavor is the same, lightly sweet, light grassy bitter. Corny notes prominent, a bit metallic on the finish. Light body. Not so hot.

3.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
Ridiculously clean & translucent - not to mention piss yellow - all like it’s supposed to be. Also, all the desirable aromatic aspects of an ultralight, w/o any of the unnecessary - clean with hints of corn and hay, and little else. Indeed, it tastes, as well, like the air above a cleaner sort of barnyard - full of a fresh grain harvest. More crisp a palate, and a touch more body than comparable brews. So easy to enjoy, not to mention drink.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Straw yellow, lots of bubble rising to the top. Almost champagne like carbonation. Refreshing and crisp. Pale malt flavor. Lacks a little kolsch sweetness, a little boring.

4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 15/20
Pours straw gold with a tall head of thick white foam that fell slowly leaving lots of lace behind and a cap and ring. Exceptional clarity and brilliance. Nose has a good sour bite from the yeast up first then a clean and mildly fruity smell. Apples and some faint spice. Pale malt with a honey sweetness. Light grain. Earthy. Taste is perfection. Refreshing with the apple as it comes over the palate fruity and sweet with plenty of smooth bread underneath. A touch of floral and even a little mint. The body is feather light and smooth. It ’s supple and rich. There is a deep earthy quality to the malt that I find spectacular in it’s straightforward simplicity. It’s dry overall and leaves with a touch of pine and a small bitter. There’s no lingering aftertaste except for the taste of minerals. It’s superbly clean. Very refreshing and a stellar example of the style.

Typical kolsch. Poured a straw yellow with a white head. Aroma was light butter and grass. Flavor was similar with mild grainy notes. Meh.

Some days just call for the simple beauty of a kolsch. Reissdorf’s does the tech. Clear golden-yellow body with a decent sized white foam on top and spotty lacing. Shows pale German malts and clean, bright citric and grassy hops. Light bodied, assertive carbonation and a nice semi-dry finish that is quite refreshing. Classic.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
A generally sweet aroma with touch of pale malt. Flavour has sweet, slighty sticky feel. Malty with only a light bitterness. Quite a soft mouthfeel although gassy enough to cause some loud burping!

A big disappointment: the carbonation, being far too strong, was so dominant over all other features it ruined my day. Now this surprises me reading that others found carbonation mild. A bad batch?
