yellow, with a moderate quickly dissipitating head. Some spiciness but a bit metallic-macro-like lager. Sweetish finish, Really nothing special. Not very drinkable, maybe as it was not very fresh. Light, a touch of toastiness, all didn't work too well for me.

Picked this up at Bruisin Ales in Ashville, consumed late July
Poured copper with 1 finger of eggshell colored head. Great clarity for a keller, minimal head retention & lacing
S: Bready with some caramel notes
T: Big-time caramel & breadyness up front. Some herbal hops & crackery notes as this warms. Finishes dry with hints of pecan
MF: Low carbonation. medium body & great balance
Drank very easy, was as good as as any keller I had out of the bottle in Germany

Slightly cloudy amber color with an off white head thats stiff, resembles airy Styrofoam packing, and good retention. Sweet light malt, honey, toffee, and tea in the nose. Soft flavors with lightly roasted malt, honey, and molasses. Slight organic, mossy, tea like notes mixed with floral, mildly bitter hop characters. Light body, a semi-smooth mouthfeel and a enjoyable fizzy carbonation. The finish is dry, bitter, a tad spicy at first but ends with a charred caramel flavor. Good beer, and highly drinkable.

Appearance: Attractive, rich honey color. Nice sized head, with mediocre retention. No lacing. My first kellerbier - surprisingly clear, for an unfiltered beer.
Smell: very light aroma, reminiscent almost of wheat germ, with just a bit of hop presence.
Taste: Fairly light flavor, grainy, with a bit of overripe fruit in the finish. Finishes dry. A bit light for me, mom was a fan, however.
Mouthfeel: thin, carbonation seems a little light.
Drinkability: Okay, paired well with a light grilled fish sandwich.

Clear with very minimal bubbles rising to the top, amber in looks.
Toasty, malty smell with that bread hint, it is very mild not overwhelming to the mouth.
Smooth, soft, and full
Quite pleasant and very drinkable example, though it really does not stand out.
The swing top gives it a nice touch.
Not worth the price at $10.99 per bottle though.
The date on the bottle is out of date but i wanted to try it anyway.

1.6pint bottle into a pint glass.
Pours a reddish brown with some off white head that quickly drops to nothing.
Smell is almost non existent, but I guess that is better than being offensive.
Taste very bready. Grain notes and a very yeasty quality. Different but not bad at all.
Overall, an interesting style. My first Keller bier and I enjoyed it. I can feel those vitamins working their magic!

Moosbacher Alt Kellerbier pours a dark amber color with an off white head that quickly dissipated from a half liter swingtop bottle that opened with a reassuring pop. Sweet malt dominates the aroma. There are more hops in the flavor than I expected given the nose. There is a very pleasant balance between the hops and the caramel malt. Enjoyable.

A: Poured a transparent deep amber hue, kind of caramel in color with two fingers of bubbly white head that dissipated to a thin layer of bubbles.
S: A very clean profile, with a slight malty sweetness, a bit grainy as well. Hints of caramel or a buttery undertone sit in the background.
T: Surprisingly subtle aspects of this beer make it somewhat enjoyable. The malt/grain is present up front, with a little bit of a sweetness in the middle that washes away into a dry and faintly hopped finish. There's a bit of a grainy character throughout, though, which is probably a by product of the yeast, but I consider that a positive trait of this beer.
M: Spot-on with the carbonation. A very light mouthfeel to a beer that hints at something heavier on the first sip. Well-done.
D: The lightness of this lager and the interesting grainy malt flavor are enough to keep me sipping at the subtlties, so I'd have to say it's a fairly drinkable brew.

German flip top. Gorgeous sepia brown with a small head that disappeared quickly, but left a nice foam along the edges of the glass. Lightly roasted malt in the nose with a touch of bitterness perceptible in the scent. Taste is all malt, with a nice fruity bitter hops flavor that balances the lightly carmelized taste of the malt perfectly. A bit on the thin side, but definitely not too thin, with delicate little bubbles. Very drinkable--and with a moderate ABV. Labeled a Kellerbier, but definitely has an Alt taste and color. Like the best of both styles in one. A great find that came in a 4-pack of large bottles.

Poured this beer from bottle into a tumbler at 48 degrees. The beer had a nice pretty amber color with a fine frothy head. The smell was fruity, bready and yeasty like dough or something being kneeded in front of your nose. The taste was slighly sweet, slighly nutty with a very smooth finish. Very drinkable well balanced beer I thought. I will buy again.

500 mL swingtop, best before date is notched 08/07. It pours a light copper with very active carbonation and a half-inch tan head that leaves decent lacing. The aroma consists of grains, molasses, and toasted, lightly smoked malts. It has a light flavor, but I can detect caramel, toasted malts, a faint smokiness, some sweetness, and light, spicy hops that contribute a mild bitterness. The body is medium and fairly smooth, drying, with lightly tingly carbonation. Overall an average German lager I'd say, almost reminiscent of a dunkel. Not bad, but not great.

Dark reddish brown color with a thin cap of hazy head. Body is completely clear and lacking in carbonation bubbles. Nose is bland and grainy and not very exciting.
Taste is more of the same, with a side order of metallic flavors and a decent malt backbone. Mouthfeel is a pleasant surprise with enough carbonation to turn this into a solid lager with a smooth, refreshing texture. Clean and refreshing with a yeast influenced aftertaaste.
Overall this is decent but nominally boring. Still, I could see draining a few of these on a hot day in Deutchland.

Appearance: Clear amber color, with a modest head, which quickly collapsed, and scattered lacing.

Taste: Toasty, bread-like malt flavor throughout, with a hint of caramel sweetness late in the taste, finishes with a dry and lingering mild bitterness.
Mouth feel: Smooth, soft, and full, with a hint of stinging carbonation.
Drinkability/notes: Quite pleasant and very drinkable example, though it really does not stand out.

soapy off white head, good retention, good lacing, semi hazy brown hue, a good amount of carbonation rising up from the depths, simply a nice looking beer.
caramel with a hint of nuttiness, a waft of smoke. this is interesting but not THAT interesting...
light tasting but somewhat full in the mouth, the hops are sorta dusty tasting in their bitterness, the carbonation is excellent, it makes it almost refreshing but also just prickly enough. the caramel tones are present but the wierd character mixes with it making this drink less like a traditional lager...I suppose it is from the yeast? it is almost like a strange tasting lager... yep, that's it. the nice lagering caramel tone is subdued by the yeast providing a different array of flavor.
interesting to try.. not something to go on a 4 day road trip for.

Flip cap pint bottle purchased at Spirits Unlimited on Route 36 in Middletown for $2.09.
Pours out a deep amber with a seriously rocky white head that left sheets of lacing.
Aroma of biscuit and caramel with a faint floral backdrop.
Taste was balanced and somewhat muted. Some biscuit and some sweetness with a trace of balancing bitterness that evoles into a nice dry finish.
Mouthfeel was a touch on the thin side, though clearly not watery
Overall a very drinkable brew and a nice one to keep on hand. Style wise this brew was very similar to some Marzen that I have enjoyed...

The beer poured into the glass crystal clear watery brown (the color of tea). The head was white while it lasted but quickly faded to nothing.
The aroma was fruity with a caramel presence similar to that of an English Bitter.There was an earthy character to the aroma and a bit of wheat.
The flavor was again, similar to that of an English Bitter. The flavor contained caramel and a bit of wheat but a substantial bittering level was present. The flavor also had more of that earthy character noted in the aroma, but was not as fruity and estery as expected.
The finish was heading toward dry with a lasting bit of caramel and bittering into the aftertaste. The body was just below medium with a fairly low carbonation level. The beer opened with a whoosh, but did not have a high carbonation level. This was more of an English Bitter than a German ale but had a nice bittering level. As a session beer this might be a good one if in the area.
0.5l flip top bottle. Use before 10 06 notches on label.

Taste/Mouthfeel: Slight watermellon and malt taste. Watery with a hint of creaminess to it.
Ap: There was a huge creamy head to this beer when poured. Very attractive.
Drinkability/Notes: This beer is not something you would search high and low to get but if you see it in the store, please try it. A nice alternative to the BMC beers.

Bottle Inspection: Another brown German bottle, only thing on the label I could read was 12/05. That I understand.
Aroma: Mild, almost absent. Hints of brown malt and mild spice, maybe nutmeg.
Appearance: Very clear light brown glass topped by an off white head that collared quickly.
Flavor: Mildly toasty, some light hops and a slightly smoky note. I worked hard to come up with even that: this is a seriously mild beer.
Mouthfeel: Medium body, low carbonation.
Overall Impression: I dont want to give the impression this is a bad or watery beer, but the taste was just very neutral. A pleasant little beer, one I could session without complaint, but there just no wow about it.
