In Cologne, the land of Kölsch style, this beer is simply a head above the rest. Kölsch is warm fermented like an ale but then cold stored like a lager. This provides for Kölsch’s light color and taste, not as bitter as other German pale lagers. The Reissdorf Kölsch is straw yellow in color, crisp and clean on the palate, with a snappy hop bite and lemon-like zestiness. An aroma of almost spring-like floralness is omnipresent. Brauerei Heinrich Reissdorf has a tradition dating back to 1894 in making this 4.8% ABV sessionable brew.
