Half litre bottle, poured into pint shaker.

A: The staggered pour resulted in a large foamy head, amber, it was slightly more cloudy than what I’ve seen people posting on Untapped. Didn’t look overly lively or keep much of the head.

S: Not particularly fragrant, but at different times there were notes of clove, banana and Kentish hops.

T: Strong hints of sour dough, finished with some fresh sharp hoppy bitterness,
which was slightly reminiscent of a Pils from north Germany.

M: Not much carbonation, slightly thick chewy texture.

O: If this beer was put in a wooden barrel and served in a traditional Bamberg drinking establishment, people would be very impressed. Held up well against bottled Kellerbiers from breweries with more experience of making them.

Pours a light Amber color with a nice two finger tan fluffy head that quickly receded to a nice lacing film. The aroma is sweet bready malt, with just a slight hint of oats like Cheerios, along with some light orange notes and some grassy hints. The oaty flavor stands out a little more in the taste, while the sweetness remains in the background. The mouthfeel was fairly full and creamy, very nice. Overall, this is my first time trying a Kellerbier, it's pretty nice. It's not too heavy in the taste, nor the alcohol, so as many lagers go, it would make a great session beer. I could easily drink a bunch of these!

Coppery amber pour with a head that dissipates quickly. Enjoyable and easy to drink!
