500 ml bottle, from Vinmonopolet, Nettbutikken, shared with my son. ABV is 5.0%. Deep golden colour, slightly hazy. Moderate white head. Malty aroma, hints of brown bread and caramel. Good mouthfeel for its ABV. Soft flavour with a nice balance between the malts and the floral and herbal hops, a hint of caramel again, but not too sweet. Might well buy again.

Pours a hazy orange color with a medium top off white head that dissolves quickly.
Aroma is of nuts, biscuits, bread, honey, grains, grass and some herbal hop notes.
The taste is dry with some slight fruity and grassy notes allong with some bready notes in the background. I can sense some slight caramel notes there as well. It then finishes of quite bitter with some herbal hop notes. Aftertaste has a nice lenght. Smooth and clean mouthfeel with a medium carbonation and a medium body.
A quite nice example of a kellerbier. Nothing extraordinary, but taste fairly good and is refreshing.

look: 4.25 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.5
look: great looking lager, two finger rocky white head with good retention, beer is a super hazy rich amber colour, some sediment rolling around the bottom of the glass.

smell: that smells quite nice, fresh baked white bread, biscuity malt, lot of honey, grassy, caramel, lightly earthy, lightly floral, enticing.

taste: hmmm, not maybe as nice as i was hoping it to be, the malt flavours that are there are really nice, white bread and biscuit, nice bit of honey and floral grassy notes, light caramel sweetness, but there is definitely a metallic flavour on the finish, and the overall flavouring exactly explosive, light bitterness on the finish

feel: light to medium bodied, medium carbonation, clean and crisp.

overall: the weakest kellerbier i’ve had, not to say that i’ve had many but i’ve had a good few as of late, still alright but just lacking a bit.

Not sure if it is the overall style or just a fact that it is one of the oldest breweries in the world, but this is increadible beer anyway. So lucky to did the tour at the brewery and bring the variety six pack to go.

Hazy, dark golden color with beige head. Not much going on on the aroma, just some grainy malts and a light hop note. Taste follows with the grainy malts, some bread crust, light hop bitterness on the finish. Medium body with smooth mouthfeel. Overall it's a clean beer but quite boring.

A beer style did not know, good to spend thirst so nice. He lacks depth and complexity; but maybe this style is not asked.

500ml bottle - nice to see this Bavarian brewery's wares back on the shelves in Alberta - and having brought a few of their new to us friends with them!

This beer pours a slightly hazy, medium golden amber colour, with a teeming tower of puffy, loosely foamy, and bubbly ecru head, which leaves some streaky coalescing cloud-form lace around the glass as it lazily recedes.

It smells of bready and doughy pale and caramel malt, sodden breakfast cereal, stale clover honey, a weird phenolic yeastiness, buttery white crackers, and a weak earthy and weedy hoppiness. The taste is semi-sweet, grainy and bready caramel malt, more free-agent cereals, some plain apple and stewed pear fruitiness, more indistinct honey sugars, a still strange yeasty acerbity, ethereal rancid butter, and more generic earthy and leafy noble hop bitters.

The bubbles are fairly inert in their just trying to get off the ground frothiness, the body a so-so middleweight, and quite clammy and pithy in its wan attempt at smoothness. It finishes off-dry, all those wayward malty esters bumping heads, trying to figure out just where it all went wrong.

Yeah, something smells botched in Bavaria here - no engaging graininess, no day-saving hops, just a downtrodden example of an old-world style that, while I don't have enough experience to pick apart any subtleties of character, I at least know when there's rot in the system. Too bad, as this outfit's Asam-Bock is quite, quite good.

From the website; "The unfiltered and naturally cloudy beer from the oldest monestary brewery of the world. An old specialty which contains plenty of vitamins and mineral nutrients."

0.5l bottle is less than oone month old. Big head with Hefe like topography, decent enough retention and noticeable cloudiness with nice orange gradients and persistent carbonation. There is some yeast down there and i can´t resist throwing it in there in the name of the "organic setting".

Loads of bready malts and yeast, fruity notes, cheese, almost funk in the nose, with pepper in the background. It feels really fresh and natural, and even the hints of dyacetil make sense. Nose developes nicely as it warms.

Taste is fruity malts and yeast, with a pleasurable sweetness in the back which never gets too much. It finishes dry but yet tasty and delicious. Hops, for all the debate about the style, don´t make much noise, and bread in a glass applies. I understand it might look one dimensional and “bland” for some but it is not for me.

The body also reminds of a weissbier, with a mellow velvetiness and maybe a bit short on carbonation.

Actually growing on me after a few bottles, I´ve liked it in previous years but i am appreciating it more this time, and would love to see it around more as a regular. I am no expert on kellerbiers regarding hop intensity, yeast, etc, but i after a few years i think i get the big picture and this one might be the best i´ve had (not that many). Certainly gives Grevensteiner a run for its money.
