Reissdorf Kölsch is the beer speciality from Cologne with a tradition starting 1894. A Kölsch with a pleasant, full-bodied, and uniquely light and sweet taste in premium quality, that is brewed for the adepts who prefer something special.

MAP (1133) - Lakewood, Ohio, USA - DEC 17, 2004
Grainy hoppy citrusy nose, rather decent for a Kölsch. Flavor is a plain grassy malt feel, with medium bitterness. The mouthfeel has a nice lingering spike to it. Not a bad offering, but nothing too amazing.

JorisPPattyn (8795) - Ursel, BELGIUM - DEC 14, 2004
draught, served ice-cold Very pale gold; collapsing yellowish head, very dense. "Herb" nose, bit of hops and little malt, bit of ’sulphur’ - probably very green-yeasty beer. Sweet, soft-grainy taste, again yeasty-fruity-estery. Probably even sweeter when warming up. Sticky-sweet MF, keeps sticky, smacking for a long time. This could do with some lagering. Very green, though not bad.

rauchbier (3699) - Isle Of Beer, Lincolnshire, ENGLAND - DEC 6, 2004
Bottle, from a supermarket in Köln. Gold, moderate white head and moderate condition. Trace hops in the nose, some fruity malt emerging in the mouth and a gentle sweet maltiness in the finish with a hint of hop bitterness.

hellomynameis (876) - Mayer, Minnesota, USA - NOV 18, 2004
Aroma is a bit hoppy with some citrus. This was pretty mellow. A bit of a bready taste with that citrus hops coming back for the finish.

(16.9 oz bottle, $2.79) Self-proclaimed on the label as "The Classic Kölsch," this beer is mildly sweet and bready, lightly bitter, but still fairly flavorful. The nose is an accurate foreteller of the flavor -- sweet and bready with only a slight bit of citrus and hops in the background. Medium bodied with a somewhat sweet, lingering palate that isn’t what I’d describe as clean or crisp. Dark yellow in color, not quite dark enough to be in the golden range, crystal clear, with a fair amount of tiny carbonation bubbles rising slowly through the beer. The whitish head pours to an inch thick, but maintains only a thin layer, leaving small dots of lacing here and there.

mdi (573) - Nebraska, USA - OCT 12, 2004
5ooml bottle no BBD, but no dust on the bottle! Very pale blond color, slight white head. Nice malt aroma with a sprinkling of noble hop spice. Its almost perfumey in its aroma. Light bodied but not thin. Hops are well done, adding a pleasant spice to the mellow malt. Finishes fairly crisp, w/ some bitterness. This is really well-done. Yeast adds just the right touch of subtle fruitiness. Light and refined, but flavorful.

Crosling (1864) - Fort Collins, Colorado, USA - OCT 4, 2004
Yellow. Aroma of apple, pear, straight grains and ginger. Bready malt and light grain in the back around fruit notes of apple and pear. The finish displays a lovely hop bite and a hint of starwberries. Very good for the style. I have a feeling this bottle has been sitting on the shelf for quite some time. I’d like to eventually review a fresher sample.

chriso (7513) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - OCT 3, 2004
UPDATED: SEP 18, 2005 Pale gold colour. Some malt in the aroma, with a touch of sulphur and hints of sweaty socks. The flavour is slightly lemony but, overall, I found it fresh, but a bit dull and lacking in interest. I guess I’m not really a Kolsch fan. Draught at GBBF 2004. [5/4/6/3/11] RE-RATE. On draught at GBBF, August 2005. Much more sprightly and zippy than last year. Guess the condition was better.

Purs a straw color with a big white head. Aroma is light and fruity sweet with some grassy notes. Flavor again is light and sweet. A little lemony. Light and crisp.
