Poured on tap into a large tumbler at Churchkey DC.

Deep apricot orange body, with some great lemon highlights. Slow rising and long streams of thin carbonation. Lots of ring lacing while drinking, topped with a creamy egg white looking one finger head. Very nice looking brew if a little cloudy.

The nose just hits with thick deep bread yeast. Ripped up malt and chewy dough balls and hints of faint lemon. Dense dense DENSE. Complimenting spicy herbal notes which are soft accent this wonderful bready body.

Palate just fills with huge malts and doughy goodness. THick breaded action, and this unbelievably creamy mouthfeel. I've never had a lager this creamy in my entire life. Slight herbal spicy finish that just wants to peak out over this hot bread, with a mellow hop juicy quality to match.

Love Love love this beer, easily my favorite Keller I've had to date.

I believe this is my first Keller/Zwickel Bier! I've been waiting a long time to try this style and specifically this beer!

A: Very cloudy, golden-orange...like honey. Beautiful beer. Big, fluffy, pillowy head that settles into mounds of off-white foam.

S: Yeast, fruit, hay, grass, toasted malt. A hearty bouquet of German goodness.

T: Unique but delicious flavors. Part fruit, part yeast, part malt, with a bit of sweetness and funk even. Sometimes these German lagers have a bite or a distinct finish that makes them taste and feel German, regardless of the style. But this is missing that, which I like. It's just smooth and full of great qualities.

M: Creamy is an understatement. Great body. Unique mouthfeel. This is what the lagers of old probably felt like. Thick, rich, full-bodied, and full of yeast and vitamins!

O: I had high expectations for this style and this beer for unknown reasons. Just kinda knew it would be good. And I was not disappointed! An enjoyable and special drinking experience. Hope to one day try this style in Germany!

Mahr’s Bräu Ungespundet hefetrüb has an extremely lively, thick, off-white head, a hazy, sediment-filled, orange-gold appearance, numerous, fierce bubble streams, and fairly heavy lacing left behind. The aroma is of strong, bready, malt, cream cheese, slightly-turned milk, and iron-laced dirt. The taste is the same, with that overriding iron-dirt aspect. Bitterness is pretty low. Mouthfeel is light to medium and slimy. This beer finishes wet, turned, and strange. Overall, for those who enjoy ironized soiled, it should be a winner.

The beer comes in a golden hazy orange color with a fluffy head.

The aroma has some cracker bready malt, but dominated by sweet sweet honey and floral hops.

The flavor follows with a punch of pure honey tea sweetness in the front. It lingers with some cracker malt, and then turns into this bright floral grassy hop. This beer really shows off the wonderful characteristics of noble hops. The floral and honey characteristics combine so perfectly together.

It's a full flavored beer, but quite smooth and light to medium bodied. Super drinkable and something I could drink over and over again.

Pours a light amber gold color. Glowy. It's quite hazy from all that yeast, I assume. Yellowish white head. Puffs up nicely at first. Some lacing, decent retention. The aroma is all sweet, fresh grain. It smells like high quality malt. Not an off note to be found. Just light doughy flavors with a floral hop background. The taste is similar. There's a wonderful, bready malt flavor and a bit more hops than come across in the aroma. It's a bit drier than expected. It's got a good amount of sweet malt flavor, but it pretty much dries out by the finish, and the beer finishes clean and pretty crisp. Nice floral, grassy hop flavor throughout the taste. Some light fruitiness - apples, apricots, pears - but it really tastes more like straight, clean grain. Lots of flavor for the abv. Light mouthfeel but the flavor still fills out the palate. Carbonation seems a bit low, which probably helps with that creamy yet light feel. Very refreshing and easy to drink. I grabbed this bottle before it even hit the shelf - came off the truck at a local store two days ago - so it's pretty much as fresh as I'm going to find it around here, and it definitely shows. I'd love for more American breweries to produce beers like this. It's right and light, and there's not even a hint of an off note. Very tasty stuff.
