On tap at Lord Hobo.

Mönchshof Kellerbräu poured a cloudy copper, and was topped by a nice, white head that faded to a film, leaving patchy lace. The aroma was moderately malty with a light bit of hops. The malts were toasty, bready, and had a hint of caramel, while the hops were grassy with a light, bright, citric note

Toasty malts upfront let through a mild bready sweetness. The breadiness comes to the fore in the center, and meets the mild grassy and citric flavors from the hops. The hop bitterness appears in the finish and lingers, but isn't strong. Its presence is enough to cut the malts, and give a nice finish. This Keller Bier is crisp, and light with a seltzer like carbonation in finish and mild dryness.

I thought that this beer was very nice. It was crisp and light, but balanced.

500 ml Bottle with ceramic swing top cap

A: Nice light amber color, cloudy. off-white head that dies down after a minute. Some lacing.

S: Very light malt and yeast scents. Not picking up much hops. Hay.

T: Some malt and oak. Nothing too complex happening here. Straight forward clean flavors. A nice lasting slightly bitter finish.

M: Medium mouthfeel, light carbonation.

O: This is my first experience with a Keller beer. Let me say that I am not a big fan in general of Lagar beers, I really enjoy the complexity of yeasty flavors in ales. So that is why my ratings may seem a little low.

Having said that, this Keller beer did show some character, especially when it warmed up.

3.83/5  rDev -0.5%
look: 4 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 4 | feel: 3.25 | overall: 3.75

appearance: Goldeny Brown with sunshine cloudiness around the edges. A force to be recconded with sans head

smell: Some nice wood spices brings out a hint of Christmas with a bit of nuts

taste: You can really taste a cask like feel on the tongue almost like the barrels are still there in the brew

mouthfeel: A bit weak but then again what do I know. The flavor stays on the tongue but the body leaves quickly

overall: I like it, it was a nice surprise. Someone took some time on this recipe. Not my favorite but I would love this in the winter time.
