I hope I had a bad bottle, but something seems to have been off. Upon opening, the plum aroma was very pleasant. The pour was nice, light head. The appearance was crystal-clear with no sediment in bottle, which immediately conflicted with what I'd read about the beer. The color seemed a little off too, with a grey overtone muting the color. The taste was initially pleasant, sweet and fruity with mild carbonation, but the aftertaste was very unpleasant. I struggle to describe it, but dirty-chemical comes to mind. I couldn't finish it, and poured it down the drain. I wouldn't even let my dogs drink it because I was worried that it might have been a contaminated bottle.

I don't think this bottle was expired since the complete lack of sediment or turbidity tells me that what was filled into this bottle was not representative of their normal product. I wonder if a really old keg was used to fill it or if something went awry in the filling lines. Regardless, it points to questionable quality control and I will not be buying again.

This is appears to be my first authentic Kellerbier. I looked up the style to get some frame of reference. This one seems to fit the description for the most part. Pours a fairly cloudy, deep dark amber with a white foamy head. Aroma is mainly sweet with some yeast. Taste is very sweet. Like carmel and honey, with some toasted malt similar to a sweet, fresh baked dark bread. Also crisp like a pilsner, and a very faint hop bite. Finishes with a lingering candy sweetness, almost like some sort of sugar coated cereal. Nice lager.

Poured into a stein from a half-liter bottle. I'm not sure if this was the proper glassware but fack it.

I haven't seen too many beers with a color like this brew. It's got a pale brown body with blonde hues and a quite cloudy appearance. The head doesn't stick around long, but it does leave a frothy lace behind.

Molasses is big on the nose, as is what I would have to call butterscotch. I also get an oatmeal like aroma. It smells like a sweet breakfast.

Molasses continues its crusade to the tongue, but here there's some caramel joining, a light touch of hops that have a slight vegetable quality, and a strong dose of minerality.

Despite the heavy malt flavors, this beer is light and feels thin-bodied, but in a good, drinkable way. It's refreshing and has a stiff bitter finish that undoes all the preceding sweetness.

I'm still learning about these kellerbiers, but I enjoy this one. I think I need to delve into this style much more to learn just how well this beer represents it.

Appearance - this is dark for the style, copper brown body with off white head

Smell - honey, baked bread, whole wheat

taste - similar to the aroma - slight honey sweetness, baked bread, whole wheat

mouthfeel - medium bodied, medium to high carbonation, slight sweetness upfront, bready finish, clean and refreshing, keeps you wanting to come back for another sip

Overall - this was dark for the style, but a good beer. give it a try if you see it

Packaging: 500ml brown bottle, swing-top

Purchased: Single from Pour Vous, Hendersonville, TN

A: Clear, dark amber beer with 3 fingers of off-white head. Retention is good but there is not much lacing. I was expecting a cloudier beer than this based on the style notes.

S: Bready malts, plus spicy yeast and some earthy hop character. Nice

T: Caramel malts have some toasted flavor. Other tastes are woody and earthy hops.

M: The finish is fairly dry with a little vegetable unpleasantness in the aftertaste. Carbonation is average with a medium body.

O: All in all a good brew, but not very noteworthy. Would be better as a beer to have with a meal than all on it's own like I had.

Pours a rich amber with a nice two finger fluffy cream colored head. Nice, dark, somewhat see through. Looks appetizing!

Smells of nice nutty, creamy, honey, and cereal malts. Hard to pick up any hop notes, but the yeast is coming through.

Taste is first noticeable with that distinct cereal and toast note. Slight caramel malts with a touch of yeast. Again, it's hard to pick up any hop bitterness and is very subtle. Feels light and round on the tongue. Medium amount of carbonation in the appearance but feels like more. It has a nice amount of thickness for the abv of this beer. The drink-ability is pretty nice, something I could have with a meal or on it's own.

Overall, it's a great example of the style. This is one I would love to have on tap and something I could drink a lot of. Makes me want to explore the style even further.

Food pairings: Soft Pretzel, sausage, mashed potatoes, slow roasted beef
