Nicely thick and creamy head, on a very pale transparent golden color body. I'm almost scared to bring this beer to my lips, as the head seems to be willing to last forever. Will I interrupt eternity? The smell is grainy, leaving me an impression of wet oatmeal that you get huge with the water absorbed, a little bit like infused tea leaves. Dry hoppy smell too.
The perfection of the head hid a very common beer... I should just have looked at it forever, and get myself something else in the fridge...
Grainy with a thick, 'raw' and unbalanced hoppiness. Almost mouth puckering. There is some fruitiness here, but it is way too light imho. A feeling of sourness too.
I'm gonna pour this one down the drain, and the head is still perfect...

Thanks to blutt59 for sharing this bottle. We can always count on Bob to share the rare German beers.

The beer pours a yellow color with a white head. The aroma is heavy on the wheat with some grass from the hops mixed in. The flavor is heavy on the wheat with some lemon notes. Medium mouthfeel and medium carbonation.

Sampled on-tap at Cafe Abseits in Bamberg, Germany. 5.5% ABV.

This kellerbier poured a gold-amber color with tan foam that settled. The smell was mildly malty and hoppy. The taste was mildly malty with good hop balance and a light fruitiness. The mouthfeel was smooth and dry overall with medium body and moderate carbonation. It was fairly clean overall. This was a smooth, clean, kellerbier.

.5L, 5.1% ABV. Can't determine best before as it's notched in two places in the month category. Seems fresh though.

Light amber with lots of sediment floating around. Head is compact but has some staying power.

The aroma is woody, spicy and hoppy, along with an earthy yeast character.

Very dry and bitter. Simple grain flavors, clean. Leafy, tea-like hops, some lemony character underneath, but overall a bit lacking in hop flavor. Finish has a big, lingering bitterness. The mouthfeel is smooth and soft, with low carbonation.

Drinkable and refreshing, but the relentless, tea-like hop bitterness makes this beer unbalanced.
