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. (774 characters)

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! (617 characters)

-upfront caramel and floral notes
-bready
-red apple
-quite hoppy for a kellerbier
-low carbonation (acc to the style)
-slightly sweet and rather thin on the backend

They mustve used a cleaner yeast for this,because even though it was unfiltered,it was pretty clear anyways.
Fairly o.k. Kellerbier (298 characters)

Amber color and clear. Small head but decent lace that leaves streaks and spots on the glass.

Malty aroma. Semi-sweet with a caramel presence. This smells like a light bock.

The flavor matches the smells. This is a hop heavy beer. Fairly neutral in all aspects--toasty malt with a bit of a hop kicker. Full bodied with ample carbonation. Hoppy finish that contributes to a bitter, but short, aftertaste. (413 characters)

From the bottle, it pours a coppery amber pour with a head that dissipates quickly. Light carbonation bite and somewhat sharp with a bit of hops in the taste. Enjoyable and easy to drink! (189 characters)
