Got a swing top from EuroMarket for $3.50. The hopping is pretty mild, but there's a gentle spice in the finish and balancing bitterness. It's a maltier lager up front, with toasty biscuit, a hint of caramel, and clean grain. The hops build slowly in the finish with a citrus edge, but otherwise this is just a pleasant, balanced (and hazy) lager.

Local market just got this in and I figured I would try it. Pored it into a mug from the bottle. Resembled caramel in color. Very very smooth with a full body taste. A little bit of a sweet finish. Definitely worth going out of your way to find and try it.

Label description in German, then "BEST BEFORE 10 03 13" so a few months in code. Let's drop the brewery description in freetranslation shall we?

"The independent, Franconian variant of the cellar beer is brewed after old tradition. The untergärige (bottom-fermenting yeast), nature dim full beer is somewhat for pampered beer connoisseur. The nose takes easily sweetish honey note and fine fruit note aware. One loves it for its quite very drinkable taste and its mild, sharp type. This beer our fathers brewed already so."

Pampered beer connoisseur, lol.

Bright copper color, fully saturated with bright clarity. Tendrils of drippy lace in the glass, finely textured foam that remains in the glass for a good while.

Toasty aroma,malty with some mineral essence also. Feel is crisp and slightly sharp, though it smooths out quickly in the end. Pouring in the yeast adds a bit of fullness to the body. Toasty, nutty malt flavors, a hint of dried fruit leather in the aftertaste. Pretty drinkable, a nice traditional take on this historical style.

Leikeim Bier, picked up during a short trip to Germany.
0.5 l bottle.

Looks orange/light brown, with a fluffy nice head, good carbonation.
First smell is nice malty, bready. After that, some citrus aroma.
Equal is the taste: mainly malts, good ones... and citric hops that develope into a nice mild bitter aftertaste.
Very smooth brew. Bittersweetness, refreshing light body, but with the yeasty bits from the bottle, it's defenately flavourfull untill the end.

Nice experience.

1 pint .9fl oz bottle
Served in a weizen glass

A - This beer pours burnt orange in color with golden highlights. It is hazy with chunks of yeast suspended in it. A normal pour produced almost no head. The little bit that rings the rim appears to be off-white or beige.

S - I dive in nose first and get a snoot full of caramel and toffee. I also get a little bit of toast. There are no discernible hops.

T - The nose of this beer doesn't lie. Up front it is sweet with caramel and toffee. I even taste the toast. However, it does have a little bitterness on the finish to help cut some of the sweetness.

M - Moderate to medium

O - This is a decent beer. I am not overly familiar with the style, so I am not sure how it compares. It is a bit sweet for me, but not a bad way to start my Sunday.

A: The beer is hazy dark yellow in color with some amber hues and has a moderate amount of visible carbonation. It poured with a finger high off white head that died down, leaving a thin head covering the surface and lacing running down the sides of the glass.
S: Light to moderate aromas of yeast as well as biscuit and bready malts are present in the nose.
T: The taste is similar to the smell and doesn't have much in the way of bitterness, but there are enough underlying hops to prevent any sweetness. Some hints of
M: It feels light- to medium-bodied and slightly chewy on the palate with a moderate amount of carbonation.
O: This beer seems to be a little lighter compared to other Kellerbiers but is still quite flavorful and a good representation of the style.

This kellerbier is richly carbonated and produces a brilliant bright white head. This beer maintains great crown retention. The body is orangish gold, and is hazy from the left over yeast.

The aromas are close to typical pilsner: fresh hay and kind of lemony.

This brew has a unique flavor to it. There is a very toasty/maltiness to it, with a vegetable like finish to it.

Leikeim Kellerbier has a strong bite with all the carbonation, and is very refreshing. This is a great kellerbier, and is now one of my favorites.

Pours hazy yellow with dense white head that forms patchy lacing. Aroma is bready and toasty malt, yeast and hints of citrus.

Taste is rich malt with spicy citrus hops and faint feeling of wood and smoke, bittery citrus aftertaste. Mouthfeel is medium with high carbonation that make the hoppy bite more pronounced.

Despite high carbonation, rather uncommon in Kellerbiers I have encountered before, it enhances the taste in an interesting and pleasant fashion. I certainly liked it and would buy it again.

Very pleasing creamy amber beer.

Beautiful orange amber color with a slight cloudiness that gives the beer a frosty jewell-tone look in the glass. Quite creamy in the mouth, a pleasing effervescence. A bit woody or astringent on the tongue. Malty flavors dominate with hops coming forward later. Just a little tart and citrusy but well balanced by the malt.

I've been trying examples of Kellerbiers when I find them here in Germany. An interesting style that produces a lot of flavor for modest alcohol.

500 mL bottle,

A: Pours a hazy orange with a medium white head, leaves solid lace.

S: Notes of orange marmalade and bread, nice minerality.

T: Big mineral flavours, some earthy hops on the back end. Really no sweetness.

M: Very dry, crisp, a refreshing beer.

O: I enjoyed it, though it doesn't have the overall complexity I've found in others of its style. Worth a pickup though if you like kellers.
