British Columbia (Canada)
3.8/5 rDev -1.6%
On tap at St. Augustines in Vancouver.
A: Slight white head over straw colored liquid with excellent clarity
S: Very muted, only the faint smell of yeast.
T: Floral, earthy, grassy and leafy hop flavors with biscuity and breast malt.
M: Medium viscosity and carbonation
O: I honestly have no ideas if this is the gold standard because the German beers that make it to Canada are almost always well past their best before date

On tap at the brewery.
Hazy straw color body. Nice fluffy head.
Nose is mildly floral, noble hops, grass, toasted grain.
Taste is wonderful. Very good malt flavor throughout. Cereal, whole grain bread, clean, crisp and a spicy hop finish. Just excellent. I have always loved the zesty hops of a good pilsner but always wished the malt backbone was stronger. This beer finally does that.
Mild and light enough mouthfeel to be easy drinking yet flavor is all there. Fuller than your typical pilsner. Excellent beer. This is one of my favorites from Brooklyn.

From 07/13/12 notes. Had on tap at The Gate in Brooklyn, NY. Served in a 16 oz. pint glass.
a - Pours a hazy golden yellow color with one finger of fluffy bright white head and moderate carbonation evident. Looks great.
s - Smells of bread, wheat, grains, and some earthy notes. Nice but not a ton going on in the nose.
t - Tastes of bready malts, wheat, floral hops, frains, spice, pepper, earthy notes, light lemongrass, and citrus. A step up from the nose; more going on and very pleasant.
m - Light body and moderate carbonation. Super smooth and easy to drink; could definitely have a few of them. Great body.
o - Overall a pretty good kellerbier. The nose is a tiny bit bland but the taste is very nice, and it is very easy to drink. Another nice beer from Brooklyn, and a good summer beer I'd have again.

Opening drink at a dinner at Black Market in Indianapolis with Garrett Oliver himself.
A really nice example of the kellerbier style, in my opinion. Fresh, clean, crisp pilsner malt. Floor malted, I believe he said. Both smell and taste were just balanced light maltiness and a noble hop finish. The taste especially had a pretty strong hop finish. Light mouthfeel. Overall a fantastic lager.

A- gold standard pours a hazy yellow body with a thin head of revising foam. Very thin lacing does cling to the edges of the glass. Very pilsner-Esque in the appearance department
S- very floral and bready almost simultaneously with a slight pepper scent. While trying to compare this to a surly hell, gold standard comes off a tad more spiced. Good scent
T- flavor of grassy notes coate the tongue with the same bready and bitter taste I like. Prickly flavors that are very tasty as they transition into a slight fruity taste
M- very carbonated and flavorful
O- a very drinkable brew that I'm impressed with from the light, crisp, and flavorful standpoint. Refreshing summertime brew from Brooklyn

On tap at Plonk in Houston, TX.
A: Pours a pretty much clear golden/yellow color. A bubbly two finger head gently rises, then recedes in a second. Light Lace.
S: Lagerish yeast, peppery spice. Grassy dry hops that leaves a lingering bitterness.
T: Follows the nose with earthy yeast and peppery spice up front. Light grassy hops that finishes dry and bittering.
M/D: A light to medium body. High carbonation, but a bit to much on the thin side for me. Easy enough to drink, but not something I care to come back to again and again.
Just kind of a standard lager for me. Nothing bad, but nothing that stands out either.

On tap at The Holy Grail Pub in Plano. The beer pours a golden color with a large white head. The aroma has a ton of malt in it, with a hint of grass and a touch of honey. The flavor is more of the same. There is a good bit of grass and earth from the hops, as well as a low amount of bitterness and a lot of nice grain and biscuit malt notes. Medium mouthfeel and medium carbonation. A very easy to drink, refreshing beer. Very well done.

Dark gold in color with an off-white crest of soapy foam. Cascading bubbles. 4.0
Dry pilsner-like aroma with some grassy German hops and a pale malt extending. 3.5
Very pilsner-like in the malts, but with a tangy lemony and soapy element to it. A little lime and honeydew rind in the flavor. Mild bitterness with a clean finish. 4.0
Well-carbonated with an easy body. Rockin' drinkability. 4.5

32oz growler from Beverage World. Served at around 40F.
Pours clear gold with a good white head that leaves nice webs of lacing and holds a light cap. Was hoping for more haze in an unfiltered lager.
Aroma is lemon citrus, floral hops, noble hops, light biscuit/cracker malt, a little grainy and herbal. Very good strength. Nice aroma for the style, good hop presence.
Flavor is more lemon citrus, crisp noble hops, grassy, herbal, some grain, light bready/cracker malt, moderate sweetness in the middle, good bitterness for the style on the finish. Minimal alcohol.
Mouthfeel is light/medium bodied, a bit oily, good carbonation.
Super-tasty lager. 100 degrees today and this is hitting the spot! Great aroma, tons of flavor and a hint more of a kick than standard in this style. Will definitely be getting another fill of this one while it’s around.

Served on tap at Cork City Pub in Hoboken, NJ
A: Pours a hazy light to medium golden yellow in color. The beer has a half finger tall fizzy white head that reduces to a thin ring at the edges of the glass rather quickly. LIght to moderate amounts of lacing are observed.
S: Light aromas of biscuit malts with earthy and grassy hops. There is also a very slight hint of light fruit (perhaps pear) and light amounts of sweetness.
T: The taste of the beer is similar to the smell, there is a solid body of biscuit malts with some light amounts of sweetness. There is an earthiness that is then take over by the grassy hops - there is a light amount of bitterness in the finish from the hops.
M: Medium bodied with moderate amounts of carbonation. Smooth.
O: Very refreshing and easy to drink, a nice example of the style. Great during this heat spell on the East Coast. The flavor gets a little more complex as it warms.

@ The Federal
Arrived in a tall pilsner glass, a clear, well-carbonated, golden-yellow colored body under a lasting white head that leaves some nice sheets of lace behind. Floral, grassy, spicy hop aromas over some light pils malt. Mild fruit and honey. Smooth, fresh noble hops and subtly sweet pils malt. Very refreshing...drinks more like 4.5% ABV. Crisp, medium-light body. I like this a lot more this time than the first time I had it. Not sure what is making this a Kellerbier, as it's clear, effervescent nature seems more in line with a good German pils. I could drink quite a bit of this if my wallet allowed such things...
