3.57/5  rDev -12.5%
look: 4.25 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 3.5

Poured from the bottle into a pils style glass.

Deep caramel bronze and crystal clear. Some cola like sized carbonation sticking to the sides, not much, but some slow rising bubbles as well. Head is a fluffy off white to tan color, easily making a thick three finger head, with soapy retention. Nice looking brew.

Mild hints of clove and caramel on then nose, minimal herbality as well. Clean and a bit wet sensing, not much going on.

Palate comes a bit unexpected. Mild notes of thin caramel, through a slightly wet body. Light bodied and a bit of mild malt depth with not much going through it. Some toasty brown bread, but very fleeting finish. Mostly caramel and a fine sense of it.

Overall really not a lot going on here surprisingly, just a different take, but doesn't really grab me.

On-draft at Cafe Abseits on 4/8/2013. Served in a krug. Pours a translucent copper with a creamy, bright white, half-inch head. Nose expresses light malts and subtle floral notes - quite subdued. This beer is clean tasting with a light malt profile, a kiss of sweetness and a light, earthy hops character. Mouthfeel is light in body with an even carbonation falling shy of crisp and a trace of oiliness. Overall, a delicious, simple, easy-drinking lager with just enough character to keep you interested and going back for more.

Half litre bottle. This beer is still being brewed. Poured a fairly large head. Bronze colour, clear. No major aroma. Tasted a bit like the typical kellerbier but had some characteristics of a Helles. Corky, started sweet with a slightly bitter finish. Decent but there are better examples of keller/zwickel out there.

Apparently not retired. On gravity cask at Churchkey on 10.11.2010.

Pours a light golden color with a nice, thick white head and never ending lacing. Nose brought some nice pale malt along with some fresh, herbal hops. A bit of grass. Taste brought things together quite well, with the hop bitterness making itself more available than in the others I had at the event. Bready character was really nice, though it was a bit darker than some of the others. Quite tasty. Feel was light and refreshing. Very nice drinkability and perhaps the second-best keller that I've had.

Refreshing earthy malt aroma with hints of caramel and grassy hops. Foamy tan head actively fades to a thin film. Glowing golden beer holds streams of tiny bubbles. Bready malt flavors up front with a bit of caramel and butterscotch underneath. Herbal hops pick up towards the finish as does a moderate bitter bite. Body is solid and the carbonation is light, but somehow the beer manages to border on crisp. Refreshing, flavorful, and amazingly drinkable. I could sit in a biergarten for the better half of the day sipping on this beer.

Sampled on-tap at Cafe Abseits in Bamberg, Germany.

This vollbier or kellerbier poured a clear, dark amber color with slightly off-white foam which settled and clung to the glass. The smell was malty and lightly sweet with a sort of "malted milk" aroma. The taste was malty with some maltose sweetness, and a mild hoppiness overall. The mouthfeel was smooth and creamy with medium body and low carbonation. There was a touch of light malt sugar in the finish and it lingered a while. This was a very nice beer -- a bier typical of Franconia.
