Order it at the brewery. In the hallway if you don't want to sit, or in the pub. An "Oooh!" is what you order. Recommended!

Sampling right now on 2/15/15. Comes in a single 500ml (16.9 ounce) bottle for around $5.00. Bottle chilled down to 36 degrees F in my beer cooler and poured in to a .3L boot.

Brew pours a hazy golden-yellow in color with about a half-finger white foamy head. A good amount of sediment is seen in the bottom of the bottle after the pour. Some sheets of lacing is seen when sipped. The aroma is mostly of sweet malts for the most part including caramel malts. Pretty much is said for the taste which also includes a hint of citrus, which is probably orange. Goes down easy with no bitter or hoppy finish. Smooth and well balanced brew. Medium-bodied with medium carbonation. Overall, a good brew.

From a 500 ml bottle (dated May 8, 2014) into a nonic glass.

A-The beer is murky and sort-of a rusty orange color. The head is almost white, dense, and about two fingers tall to start. Retention is pretty good. No lacing.

S-The smell is mostly subdued with suggestions of toast, caramel, and lightly malted grain. It is vaguely fruity with light hints of apple and pear. Not much in the way of hops.

T-Taste is similar to the smell. It is semi-crisp in flavor with toasted, bready malt flavors, a light caramel sweetness, and just a little bit of orange/citrus hoppiness.

M-The body is medium in heft with a bit of chewiness. The carbonation is moderate in volume and smooth.

O-I like this beer even though I did not taste the hops as much as the style suggests I should. The bottle was pretty old, so I can see freshness being an issue. Nevertheless, the beer has nice flavors, drinks easily, and doesn't beat your palate down with overwhelming booziness, sweetness, coffee, bourbon barrel, or whatever. I'd buy more.

Bottle purchased at Nathaniel Square Corner Store in Rochester, NY.

Pours a golden, slightly dark yellow, with a small, fizzy tight head, and a little bit of lacing.

Smells pretty bready, with some slight fruity lager yeast characteristics, and a bit of sweet grassy hops.

This isn't the most complex beer- but then again, neither is the style. It does have the gulpability factor- every time you take a drink, you come back to gulp more down really quickly. It's got delicious bready malt flavors, some grass, some slight skunk, a bit of fruity yeast, and just deliciousness all around.

This is light bodied, and exceedingly drinkable. There's a medium level of carbonation, and a bready mouthfeel.

One of the best kellerbiers that I've had. Awesome.

No bottle date

Look - Pours burnt orange with a good sized head that dissipates fairly quickly. Hazy, but not super hazy. Once the head subsides the left over bubbles become very uniform and very small. 4 paws.

Smell - Slightly spicy, yeasty, almost like a hefe but without the banana clove phenols. Biscuit, bread, slightly musty. A touch of sweetness. 4.25 paws.

Taste - Slight hop bitterness up front, that fades to give way to a bready malt character. There is a richness provided by the yeast as well. 4.25 paws.

Feel - Velvety smooth, almost chewy. Very little tingle, what is there is mostly on the back of the tongue. 4.25 paws.

Overall - This is my first kellerbier (other than Sierra Nevada's Kellerweis). I wasn't thrilled with the beer when I first sampled it, but it is definitely growing on me as I progress through the tasting. This would make a great hot weather beer, and if you like hefe's but are looking for something a little different this might be up your alley. 4 paws.

Pours a light golden color with a white head that sticks around. Slightly cloudy, and within the style guidelines. Unfiltered and I would assume aged in cave like conditions.

The aroma is funky, including noble hops, lemon, malts, grass, and tea. The taste starts off with a wall of bitterness upfront, giving way to a slight tartness. Plenty of malt and yeast notes, bready, with some lemon tartness pulling through as well. Solid herbal hop flavor lingers on with repeated sips, surely adding to the citrus flavor going on here.

Full bodied lager beer with a medium to high carbonation level, very nice and prickly on the palate. The finish is slightly dry, crisp and rather clean. Drinkable as any lager out there, this was easy to down the 1 pint .9 oz bottle.

Overall, this is a lovely beer, and one that certainly enforces the great beer reputation of Germany. I've had plenty of Kellerbier in the states and nothing has gotten me as excited about the style as this one. If I had a cave in my backyard you know damn well what I'd be doing, only difference is mine wouldn't taste this good. This is impressive stuff from Mahrs-Brau.

Lively head that recedes quickly. Pours a cloudy orange.
The nose is grains, toast, floral hops.
Tastes like tart lemon is very pronounced, some toast. floral hops come through at the end with some grass notes as well.
Mouthfeel is med-light, with high carbonation
Overall: this is my first kellerbier, and im glad to have tried this unique style. The beer is refreshing and drinkable with a nice combination of flavors.
