There's a bit of a cooked corn smell to it, but not too bad. The color is a very pale straw, lots of carbonation and a head that thins quick. This has a nice fresh clean taste, hops are pretty low, but there is still that hint of corn. A refreshing beer on a hot day, like today, but I was expecting something more. A fine example of the style, which is sometimes scarce in this area, so take a grain 'o salt with that.

Bottle at Dusseldorf. Clear pale golden with white head. The aroma has notes of ash and hay, earthy, some vegetables. Bitter and sourish flavor with lots of ash, malt, earthy, some lemon. Light-bodied.

Poobah (470) - New Orleans, Louisiana, USA - OCT 19, 2017
Pale gold and clear with a thick, dissipating white head and a malty nose. Easy intro with a medium, crisp mouthfeel. Finishes bready, malty, and with some honey notes.

Draft at Craft Brewed. Pours a clearish gold with a finger of foam that lingers. Grainy nose, lots of fields of grain. Clean and crisp, faint sweetness. Light hops on the finish. What a Kölsch should be. Very enjoyable.

Piepenhenrich (1230) - Steinbach, GERMANY - OCT 7, 2017
Being brought up on Altbier it's hard to be objective on Kölsch. Among the Kölsch I had, I find Reissdorf to be among the best.

A really nice Kolsch, though not the best of the varieties I tried on my visit to Cologne. Light a crisp, hay and grass. Mild, bright bitterness.

Must have old beer. Really skunky. Was in cologne, drink the local brew. Very skunk. Old.

Draft. Golden pour. Aroma and taste of grainy malt, fresh bitters, herbs and a bitter grassy . Typical, but nice.
