look: 4 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 5 | overall: 4.5

From estucerveza. In Bavaria glass. At dinner, with rice with meat. Ultradrinkable. A moderate amount of grassy hops with some earthiness that make it very moreish and pleasant

Half litre bottle poured into pint shaker.

A: Pale amber, hazy, small head, moderate amount of lacing.

S: Cork and hay, like a real country barn, became more pronounced as the beer warmed, some east Kent hop strangely appeared from somewhere.

T: Slight sour fruity bitterness, finished with some barley sugar.

M: Not much carbonation, thick texture.

O: A well made Bavarian Kellerbier, I would drink it again.

500ml bottle

A- Golden colour, a bit hazy, clearly unfiltered. Some carbonation bubbles can be seen reaching the frothy white head, which shows decent retention and lacing

S- Bready malt sweetness with a slight touch of earthy/grassy character, maybe a delicate lemon note

T- What the smell suggested. Bready malts, decently crisp/crackery. A quite bitter (at least for the stlyle) herbal/grassy feel, with a touch of an earthy note to it. Backfront, a slight touch of mild fruitiness (lemon is pretty much what i can get)

M- Light to medium body, average carbonation, overall a smooth and plain nice mouthfeel

O- It's quite hard to go wrong by picking a random bavarian keller from your bottle shop. This one exactly what you would expect, an highly drinkable and at the same time fine beer

Purchased at Wasana's Getraenke Oase in Idar-Oberstein

Very nice Kellerbier enjoyed in a cold ceramic mug

Aroma and pour were good as was the smell. Tight foam dissipated relatively quickly.

Slight earthy smell which actually translated well with the initial taste.

Taste was excellent with just a slight hint of sourness. Still very smooth on the palate. Overall excellent feel in the mouth with nice overall balance.

I am very fond of the keller biers and give the Goller an overall 4.0.

.5L swing-top, best by June 2011.

Pours a hazy gold with wisps of fine yeast sediment. Tight and creamy head, excellent lacing.

Aroma has some odd yeasty things going on. Notes of earth, gourd vegetables, wood chips and strange dough.

The flavor is better than the aroma, thankfully. Sturdy hop bitterness and grassy, earthy flavors. There are hints of the off-putting yeast and strange doughy character in here, though. Mouthfeel is chalky and low-carbonated, allowing the off flavors to sit on the tongue.

This is my third beer from this brewery, and there is something afoot. Maybe it's just that my palate doesn't agree with their yeast. Oh well, at least it looked nice in the glass. Note to self: avoid Göller.

Purchased from the Beers of Europe. Coming in a 500ml swing-top brown bottle, BB 21/08/08, served chilled in a weizen glass.

A: pours a trasnlucent light amber hue, coming with a very frothy white head with superb retention and lively carbonation. Looking great.
S: very light on the lemony sourness of a lager plus a faint breadiness of malts, topped with a mild apple-fruity touch of hops and some random yeastiness. True to the style, not very aromatic, and slightly like some English cask bitter.
T: a soothing taste mixed of light fruitiness and faint tea-leaves leads towards a quiet but slowly manifesting hoppiness that shows a decent level of herbal bitterness to match the yeasty wet bread in the end. The bitterness manifests itself even better with the relatively mild maltiness overall.
M&D: refreshing yet also soothing & smooth on the carbonation, this Kellerbier is truly enjoyable almost like a pint of good honest English bitter - balanced, bitter, comfy fizzy mouthfeel, plus an extra touch of lager's natural sour touch. All in all, a quaffable bier this is!
