i still think the price point to quality ratio of some of these german beers is profoundly awesome. this bottle was less than five bucks. a much thicker, denser german brew than i am used to here, hazy with yeast sediment and a flat looking tan orange hue. the beer is real heady, white and bubbly and lasting. german malty flavor here, with a warm yeast character and a speck of brown sugar in the finish. its definiely grain driven, but there is a light bittering hop in the finish with the sweetness of the grain that balances well, and the beer feels quite light for how dense it looks. creamy texture and a lot of carbonation help that. its maybe not the most dynamic malt profile in german brewing, but its definitely unlike american made beers in the same style, and i quite like it, different than what i am used to.

A beer that has a little bit of character--nice maltiness on the forefront of taste, with a little hoppy kick in the end. While I've enjoyed other kellerbiers more than this one, this good be a good start for someone who wants this type of lager but likes a little hops to be apparent.

16.9 oz bottle was poured into a hefeweizen glass.

Appearance: This beer poured a one finger head that reduced to a thin layer. It is a hazy yellow brown color with some vision of bubbles coming up through the glass. Spotty lacing down the glass as the beer was drank.

Smell: Doughy, caramel, lager yeast, grassy hops, and some sweetness.

Taste: This beer is like a mixture between a bock and a lager with some haziness to it. I dig it.

Mouthfeel: Smooth, medium bodied, a little sweet, chewy, and medium carbonation.

Overall: Nice lager/bock beer also know as a kellerbier. Will be revisiting this one again in the future.
