Reissdorf Kolsch

Reissdorf Kolsch

Ratebeer 3.14 60th percentile
Beer Advocate B+

This was the real treat at the Tactical Nuclear Penguin Tasting Party. It was the direct opposite in taste to the Penguin. The Kolsch was light, grassy and flowery.

Taste +4

The nose was very faint but hints of topical fruits and fireweed honey could be noted. Every sip was very light, crisp and dry. The tongue was lightly graced with honey, bread and grasses. People really under appreciate a light and refreshing brew.

Aftertaste +1

It was very crisp and dry with a slight sweetness.

Alcohol Content -1 4.8%

Not all beers need to be strong to be pleasing to the palate.

Value +1

This was an uncomplicated and refreshing beer.

Ingame Enhancement +1

No one expected this brew to impress the beer geeks after the Penguin.

Overall 6/10

It was very light and refreshing. You could drink these all day long on a warm patio and be one happy person. I also had a Kolsch style at Spinnakers and found it just as refreshing.
