12oz Bottle, 2013 Release
This beer pours with about a finger of foamy white head. Despite the unfiltered nature of the brew, there is little cloudiness (I will swirl the next one, I know I can get those tasty yeasts to comply!). In the aroma you get lots of grain and bread; almost cracker-like. The flavor comes off as largely the same as the aroma, very bready, almost like taking a fist full of pale (pilsner?) malt in your mouth (this Keller bier is definitely infinitely tastier I am certain). Although the complexity is nothing like something with various adjuncts and a major ABV, this beer is very refreshing and really fits the bill when you want to have a few beers without feeling too bloated or drunk.

A: very cloudy, a sexy unfiltered-ness to it. With somewhat thick white foam ontop of a nice grainy tint.

S: sweet grains and corn husk, slightly bready. Hops and citrus hints come forward as it warms.

T:sweetness hits at first, leading into grain flavors, light corn and husk, followed up by a nice sharp bitterness which is a bit grassy and hangs on in the aftertaste.

M: thick and lush.fills the mouth without being heavy.

O: damn tasty. Only picked up a single and really wish i had more. Light in alcohol and refreshing, this is a great summer beer, or for anytime you want a nice flavorful beer that isnt going to wreck your taste buds or sobriety. This is only my second keller/zwickel, and i will definitely seek out more. I think this edges out fat head's example by being slightly more complex. Will buy again for sure and hope i can score some more before it's gone for the year.

On-tap at Columbus Brewing Company, Columbus, OH

A: The beer is crystal clear light yellow in color and has no visible carbonation. It poured with wispy lacing on the surface and a thin ring of bubbles around the edge of the glass.
S: There are light aromas of bready malts and yeast in the nose.
T: The taste has flavors of bready malts along with yeast. Although the beer is clear in appearance, you can definitely taste the unfiltered nature.
M: It feels a bit shy of medium-bodied, quite smooth and a bit thick on the paalte with a moderate amount of carbonation.
O: This is a very nice beer for the summer—it’s somewhat malty but still easy to drink.

On draft at Woodlands Tavern in Columbus. Pour was a super cloudy light straw with a tight white head. The smell is loaded with a sweet light graininess and no bitterness whatsoever. The taste is super drinkable, with the taste dominated by corn and grain. I love this German beer from what Ive learned is on of the better small breweries in OH.

Summer Teeth
Columbus Brewing Company
Style: Keller Bier / Zwickel Bier
ABV: 5.00 %

LOOK: Pours a clear golden color with a soapy froth reminiscent of frog eggs on a pond. Leaves an excellent display of lace. Appears attractive.

SMELL: Clean bready malts, a touch of wheat, grassy hop, a bit grainy, faint lemon.

TASTE: Fresh tasting, with more pale malt flavor lending notes of rye bread and biscuit, but not without a good dosage of noble, grassy hops that do impart a saaz-like spice note. Cracker like yeast/malt notes. Hop flavor chimes in faint citrus and finishes with a small bitterness.

MOUTHFEEL: Light bodied, crisp, Uber-Refreshing. Really does hit the spot.

OVERALL: A summer beer with plenty of flavor and character. Tasty, well made, actually almost like a high quality import lager. A beer like this is always welcome in the beer fridge.

Poured from a 12 oz bottle into a pilsener glass. Pours a straw yellow color, with a slight haze, capped by a fluffy white 1/2" lid.

Has a nice grassy aroma, with hints of lemon, mild malt, and cracker.

Smooth tasting, with a malty start. Grass, clover, lemon zest, and dandelion combine for a refreshing taste. Finishes with a mild bit of hop.

Light to medium bodied, this is a refreshing, but not a crisp, beer, that lightly dries the tongue at the finish. The feel is too soft for me to call this a crisp brew.

A nice summer lager, I could see hitting this a few times on a hot summer day. This beer is not hurt at all by serving it ice cold, still retaining all the taste and feel it has as it warms. Another quality beer from Columbus Brewing Company!
