Half litre bottle, nice golden colour. Looks like apple juice with bubbles. Very clear, never had a keller this clear. Foamy head, dosen't stay long. I can smell cork. Sweet taste with a slightly bitter finish, also notes of banana, pepper and sour dough. Smooth and drinkable. Very nice kellerbier from a very good small brewery.

.5L, best before 6/30/11.

Pours a clear, brilliant amber-gold with a nice three-finger head. Retention and lacing are above-average.

The nose is faint, with some woody hops and dry grains.

The flavor is surprisingly bitter and dry. The main component is grassy, woody hops. There is some grainy, lightly toasted malt flavor underneath, but not much. There's a refreshing bite to this brew, and the finish is dry. Mouthfeel is smooth though not too creamy, with medium-low carbonation.

Is this really a Kellerbier? It's not "trüb" or unfiltered, and, though it's bitter, the hop aroma and flavor are muffled, and the yeast doesn't come through. Tastes kind of like a bitter Märzen. Decent.

From a big barrel at Ol Baren in Copenhagen. For free. From notes.

A - Sort of a hazy light gold colour. Soapy 2 finger head leaving decent lacing. Bright. No visible carbonation.

S - Grassy with some citrus. Subtle but good.

T - Mild but quite fruity. Good hop shot. Grassy and citrusy.

M - Mild carbonation. Light body. Very smooth.

D - Quite good. Nice flavours and easy to drink. Mild though so it loses a few points, but I would prefer this to any lager.

Sampled on-tap at the brewery pub.

This kellerbier poured a clear, dark amber color with sudsy, tan foam that settled flat. The smell was minimally malty. The taste was malty but a bit bland. There was a hint of sweetness and some mild hoppiness in the finish. The mouthfeel was smooth with medium body and very light carbonation feel. There was a light aftertaste. This kellerbier was OK, but a bit disappointing.
