Kolsch is a light and refreshing style, and Reissdorf is no exception to the rule--though it’s aftertasts is a bit more hoppy and bitter than fresh. I prefer Kupper’s, which is cleaner and ever so slightly fruitier. Still, not a bad brew--definitely preferable to most German lagers/pilsners.

Cable (286) - SE, Oklahoma, USA - SEP 19, 2005
Sampled from bottle. Pours brilliant yellow-gold with a creamy white head. Aroma is grassy and strikingly sour - much like a poorly made adjunct-laden lager. Uugh. Flavor is balanced as you might anticipate, with a small dose of grassy hops. No fruit from yeast detected. Somewhat bitter and unbalanced. Medium-light body with moderate carbonation. Pass on this one. Perhaps it’s better in Koln? No doubt this style of beer travels poorly.

500ml Bottle. Light and golden in the glass. White head loses itself immediately. Still good amount of effervescense bubbling to the top. Yeasty, hop, floral nose. Sweet hop flavor with a little dryness. Easy drinking with a subtle kick. Rolling over the tongue, sweet and delicious. Certain floral notes linger. I truly enjoy this style, but this is the first with a Cologne origin. The Germans don’t often dabble in ales, but when they do...Delicious!

Bottle. Poured a gold/yellow with a decent white head. Faint aroma of hops, not much else in the nose other than a clean smell I can’t describe. Flavors true to the style, mild sweetness, a little bit of fruit. Refreshing!

The hops (which I don’t know is a Kolsch signature or not) are skunky cabbagey but it smoothens out as it goes down. A golden color with medium head.

This is an excellent beer. By far my favorite beer i had in Germany. Besides koelsch that was freshly brewed at pubs where you could only get that beer at that pub It’s far better then its rival beer which is Alt beer from Dusseldorf. This beer has outstanding flaver. It has the look of a light beer but a strong and filling taste. Good head and gold in color.

A golden colored beer with white head. A light, earthy beer with a slighly bitter finish

Golden pour with a decent head, I think I bought it when I was thinking of Cologne, Germany. In retrospect, I probably shouldn’t have bought this beer, it doesn’t represent the best of what this kind of beer can be.

Pours a big rich white head, but it thins to nothing. Malty nose. Sharp on the tongue, then a clean finish. Bitter and crisp. Little hop character. Maltiness lingers throughout. Gotta love those Germans. A good quaff.
