A great discovery. A good German beer repeat, sure. Highlighting the taste in the mouth, great!

A: The beer is dark yellowish amber in color. It poured with a quarter finger high white head that died down, leaving a short head covering the surface, a collar around the edge of the glass, and some lacing down the sides.
S: Light to moderate aromas of apples and yeast are present in the nose.
T: The taste follows the smell, having flavors of yeast and apples, along with a little sweetness.
M: It feels light- to medium-bodied and a bit clean on the palate with a moderate amount of carbonation.
O: This beer is easy to drink, but doesn't seem to have as much complexities in the taste compared to other beers I've had in the style.

Comes out of the tap a clear, dark amber with a nice wheat head. Malty aroma has a powdery fruity overtone. Fruit, mainly apple with a little pear and a little banana and a little - cherry? - dominates the malty flavor, which is subtly sweet and has a hint of cloves. Smooth texture has firm body and a nice amount of fizz. Prosit (or prost, whatever).

This was my first "cellar beer" and I will always remember the fun of drinking from its earthenwear mug. (My bartender always had to ask if I was done!)

The particles in the unfiltered sediment must give you superpowers - I've felt weak ever since my favorite Hoff stopped carrying it.

Beyond that, its body is satisfying and thick, with a beautiful long tail and a hearty aroma.

On tap at Wurstkuche in Downtown Los Angeles, CA.

Yeasty, light, rotten apple-ish (in a good way), but nothing too impressive. Sedated like the Beatles on LSD, but not as colorful.

A bit above average.

This is an excellent kellerbier.

Pale copper, it has medium off-white head slowly shrinking.

Aroma is nice, rich yeasty bread, bread crust, herb, lemon.

Taste is juicy, yeasty bread, herbs, hint of lemon with a full body and full but lively feel.
