Sampled last night on 12/31/14. Comes in a 500ml (16.9 ounce) single bottle with a ceramic stopper for around $4.00. Bottle chilled down to 36 degrees F in my beer cooler and poured in to a handled-glass French jelly glass stein.

Pours a reddish-mahogany in color with a good 5-finger foamy/creamy head that finally settled down to around 5mm after a good while! I even poured it very slowly. Most I have seen I believe! A good amount of lacing was seen when sipped. Like a good German brew that was fresh on tap. The aroma is only of malts and yeast for the most part. Pretty much the same is said for the taste with just a very light finish of hops. Wasn't overdone at alll and actually just added some character to this brew. Don't think I have ever had this German style of beer either but was really good. Medium-bottled with perfect carbonation. Overall a great brew! PROST and BEST WISHES for 2015!

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.
