Tried on-tap at Ma Che Siete Venuti A Fà in Rome.

Pours a deep golden colour, very clear, which is surprising for a kellerbier. Body is lightweight. Head is great though: bright white, frothy, huge and persistent, leaving chunky German lace. Carbonation is fine but minimal. Really, it looks the business.

Grainy characters on the nose, giving bready, earthy notes. It's quite clean and very German in genesis. It's lacking some of the sharper character I like in a good strong kellerbier, but it's still pretty decent.

Smooth entry on the palate which is walloped by a slight underattenuated sweetness. Malty, worty characters come through on the midpalate with a slightly yeasty finish. Some weizen banana characters come through as well, along with, finally, a dusty-cellar hop presence to provide a little bite.

Feel is smooth. Not bad, but the flavour could use some crispness to match it better.

Overall, it's really not bad. But it's a bit weird though, and not what I've had in the past from German-brewed Kellers. That's not necessarily a bad thing, but I guess I came in with different expectations.
