A: St. Erhard pours a clear burnt orange with a 2.5 finger head of tightly formed white bubbles, decent glass lacing appears as the head dissipates and the beer is consumed. No alcohol legs are apparent.

S: Sweet malt, caramel, lager yeast and mild floral, earthy hops round out the nose.

T: Follows the nose, sweet malt, caramel, lager yeast and mild floral, earthy hops round out the Very well done, but a bit on the sweet side.

M: Light-bodied with smooth carbonation and finish. Very easy to drink and refreshing.

O: St. Erhard, is sort of a cross between a Kellerbier and a Zwickelbier. Thus, I would classify St. Erhard as a modern interpretation of a Kellerbier because it is filtered, carbonated, less bitter, more malt forward and balanced like a Zwickel or Zoiglbier as opposed to a traditional Kellerbier. This was probably the aim from go especially since the beer was meant to enter the beer flavor dead zones of India and China. The beer palates in these regions are probably not ready for extreme flavors.

In a nutshell, though St. Erhard is not a pure Kellerbier, it is a quality brew that preforms very well as the flavorful, unoffensive gateway beer for new craft beer consumers as intended. This coupled with the sexed up, innovative packaging employing an anti-UV glass coating make St. Erhard and interesting beer worth trying. If available, I would drink this beer again and consider it an excellent session beer that would pair well with a broad range of food types.

St. Erhard has a very thick, rocky, off-white head and a clear, fairly bubbly, orange-gold appearance, with some thick, splotchy lacing left behind. The aroma is faint, but one can detect a standardized beer aroma. Taste is of medium-roasted barley malt, a subtle caramel, and mild, balancing hop bitterness. Mouthfeel is light and watery, and St. Erhard finishes crisp, clean, refreshing, mild, and drinkable. Overall, this is really enjoyable, and I think the drinker will like it.

.33l clear bottle. Best before 2013. Pours a translucent copper with no head, just a tight band around the edges and some soapy slicks. Nose reveals caramel, skunk and noble hops. Taste is watery and skunky with dull caramel notes and some earthiness attributable to hops. Mouthfeel is light in body (a bit thin) with an even, somewhat subdued carbonation. Overall, fairly bland and a little skunky. I continue to wonder why brewers bottle in clear glass.

Appearance: Dark golden orange like crisp look bright and clean. Head is thick silky white two finger going on two & half tall, slowly dissipates.
Smell: Nice fresh beer smell with malty, light fruity, slight hop smell.
Taste: Crisp, clean, refreshing, malty light sweetness, very light fruity, and slight hop flavor. Well balanced flavor.
Mouthfeel: clean, crisp, refreshing, not watery, somewhat silky.
Overall: This is a beer that ladies and the guys should enjoy. Not hopped up, not overly malty or sweet, just a well balanced beer and smooth. The flavor has an unmistakably German flare and is a good representation of the Kellerbier style.
