4.23/5  rDev +9.3%
look: 4 | smell: 4 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4 | overall: 4

Poured from a half liter bottle into a nonic tumbler- pours an hazy copper color with less than a finger of creamy white head, modest retention and no lacing.

Smells like a keller or marzen to me- caramel, rich roasted malts, a little grassy noble hops, some yeast. Appealing.

Taste is also quite nice- sort of blooms outwards as it progresses across the palate. Starts of low key with a little grain at the tip of the tongue, then the caramel sweeps over the mid-palate with the roasted malts, catches a little kick of noble hops towards the end and finishes with the caramel coming through nicely.

Mouthfeel is pretty nice- medium bodied, somewhat delayed moderate carbonation (at first it feels smooth and then becomes a little prickly). This is a nice one- I would certainly get it again and I imagine that it would go very nicely with some pumpkin pastry/cake of some variety.

3.86/5  rDev -0.3%
look: 3.75 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 4 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 3.75

P: Pours a hazy speckled golden amber body. Capped with a beautiful bone colored half inch of milky head.

S: Sweet sticky caramel, praline, buttery aroma, wheat, orange bitters, sun kist grain and hints of chewing tobacco.

T/M: Raspberries hit the back of the throat on the initial sip and brings forth apple peels, tart lemon and orange swimming around a field of wheat. Strong metallic taste, ground spices and loads of b-vitamin bitterness. Has a faint similarity to rum and coke. Strong tobacco notes in the end like shoveling a hefty helping of Levi Garrett into your mouth.

O: I really liked this beer. I was on the fence when I purchased it but I'm glad I did. Taste was much more complex than the nose. Rich toasted caramel, spice, tobacco what more could you ask for.

4.19/5  rDev +8.3%
look: 4 | smell: 4 | taste: 4.25 | feel: 4.25 | overall: 4.25

500ml bottle poured into a .5L fest mug.

A: Pours a hazy tawny color with sediment particles in suspension. Big, bubbly, cream colored head has great staying power. Sticky and foamy clumps of lacing.

S: Sweet bready melanoidin aromas. Soft grass and hay smells. Slight floral quality too, like apple blossom maybe. Very yeasty and a little musty.

T: Sweet bready melanoidin flavors. Yeasty with a strong doughy character. Hay and dried grass. Hops lend a spicy and peppery nip. Mild, vague fruitiness for an instant. Sweet doughy and bready finish.

M: Medium bodied. Creamy and fluffy in the mouth with an airy but chewy texture I can only describe as doughy. Soft supporting carbonation. Perhaps reminiscent of a cask-type mouthfeel.

O: So this is Hofstetten's attempt at re-creating the beer brewed for the wedding of King Ludwig I; the first Oktoberfest beer. I'm really digging it. A raw, very yeasty, unfiltered fest-style beer. It's as quaffable as they come.

4/5  rDev +3.4%
look: 4 | smell: 4 | taste: 4 | feel: 4 | overall: 4

Pours a cloudy light amber topped by a giant white big bubbled head that calms down to a lasting cap.

Smell is light caramel and bread, floral hop, some estery orchard fruit notes, and just a hint of clove. Nice.

Taste is exactly like the aroma, with the yeast less tart and prominent, the fruit bolder, kind of an apple flavor, and a nice balance to it.

Light in the mouth, med. carb., very refreshing, excellent finish.

Really enjoying this beer. Though it doesn't taste like other Kellerbiers I have tried, if you dig the style you will dig this too.

A: Poured from a bottle to a mug. Had a brownish color and a cloudy consistency. There was a small amount of foamy head that lasted a fair amount of time. Almost no lacing to speak of.

S: A good aroma of malt, hops, and fruit.

T: Tasted of malt - a lot of malt (this is a German beer after all) - as well as some fruit (apples), a little bit of hops and some caramel. A well rounded, surprisingly vibrant flavor.

M: A well-carbonated beer with a smooth finish. Medium-bodied.

O: This beer doesn't break any new ground, but it is very well made and extremely drinkable.

This is a nice beer for a night cap. It has the nutrients, supposedly, needed for a good night's sleep and it tastes good.

Looks like a cloudy caramel liqueur with a medium sized white head. Foam dies down to a thin collar, minimal lacing. Swirling produces a bit of fizz but not much foam.

Fruity aroma. Orchards. Light toasted bread dough. Some light spice

Taste is sweet and more of an apple fruit. Malt is light but present to give it a nice body. It has a bit of zest to it, can't quite place it. Maybe some Noble hops here and there? Lack of body hints at low carbonation, but this has a nice fizz on it. Still, the lingering of film doesn't quite sit right with me.
Overall a good beer. Good for the night. I'd say a good apple pie would pair well here

look: 3.5 | smell: 4 | taste: 4 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 4

500ml bottle poured into my Southern Tier glass. Darker amber in color with a thin white head barely covering the top. Nice retention and decent lacing.

Aroma has crisp fruits mixing with some sweeter caramel. It's got some grainy, bready notes to it as well. Pretty clean, crisp and smooth aroma overall.

The taste follows through with a mix of light, crisp fruits and sweeter caramel and toffee notes. It's crisp in the finish and the light fruit flavors linger. Nicely balanced and very flavorful beer of the style.

The mouthfeel is medium bodied with carbonation being a little above average. Overall, it was a very solid beer of the style. Very clean, crisp and flavorful.
