Brought home from a recent trip to Germany. 0,5 liter bottle.
Nice fresh smell of german hop, Grassy, saaz i guess .
Golden beer with very nice carbonation, a decent and creamy head.
Taste is pretty malty, quite sweet i would say, with only slight bitter notes.
Aftertaste is very mild and smooth. Light.
Overall seems to me very balanced crafted and decent for the style.

500 ml bottle with screw-on cap. Poured into a Weizen glass.

Color is cloudy orange, looks like a Hefeweizen. Two fingers head, left some lace.
Smell is dominated by yeast but you can also distinguish some bready aromas.
It tasted as I was expecting from the looks, raw and unfiltered. Aftertaste is short but pleasant.

I really enjoyed this one. It's a nice alternative for a Hefeweizen if you like unfiltered, yeasty beers but want something less fruity.

Deep golden color, lightly veiled, with a decent white foam, quite creamy. Some bubbles on the sides.
Quite malty smell, with strong notes of yeast. Abit of hop in the back, very light.
Malty taste, a bit too much, and so a bit too heavy. Again yeast taste.
Average body.
A bit of hop in the back of the aftertaste.

A: Pours murky straw-coloured with a white uneven head that dissipates into some lacings.

S: Yeast up front, then there's malt, an almost bready smell. Crisp-bread and floral hops with citric notes (mainly oranges). Very faint bitter hops.

T: Creamy butter notes. Not very strong in taste. Floral hoppy notes (a bit fainter than in the smell).

M: Thin body and moderate carbonation. A bit creamy mouthfeel. The aftertaste is very short, but holds some amount of bitterness.

D: This is my first ever Kellerbier, and I must say that I'm quite dissapointed. I've heard so many nice things about Kellerbier so I guess that this is a weak example.

On tap at Santa Rosa Argentinean Grill in Berlin.

Dark red-orange color with in inch of off white head.

Smell is very orangey, with a bit of cloves and noble hops.

It's a surprising beer to drink - very orange flavored with a touch of perceptible bitterness. Odd that orange is the primary flavor and little bitterness.

Medium-bodied and refreshing. A little "thick."

Interesting try.

Comes in a stout brown half liter bottle with a short neck, a screw-on cap and a gold and tan label featuring a sketch of the brewery building. Purity law applies. Best before 1/05, I opened it on 5/30/04.

Pours cloudy pale gold under a two finger white head with very good body and decent retention, leaving a touch of lace. When cold, there is no nose at all. Towards the bottom of the glass, a good deal closer to room temperature, a bit of malt shows up, but it is very subdued. The mouth is light and moderately carbonated. The taste is, well, watery. There's a bit of a mild malt base, but this brew is close to tasteless. A mild hoppy finish improves things somewhat, but even that doesn't linger long, leaving essentially no aftertaste, just the slightest touch of bitter. Zwickels can often be a bit thin, but this was excessively so.
