Notes: The sixth of 7 beers celebrating a literary classic, and one of our favorites, Leaves of Grass, by Walt Whitman. This is our take on a German-style Kellerbier. Rustic grains, including pilsen malt and maize, offer classic bready notes and a light haze. Herbal, noble hops and tangy rye malt add a light spiciness.

Bells calls this a rustic lager, based on the German kellerbier style. The pour is mostly clear with some sediment, nice head generation at first recede to cap, aroma is slight, malts and grains mostly, taste follows with a very nice grain base but hops show up as well. Medium carb, well crafted Lager. If you like Lagers, you will dig this one, I did!

12oz bottled 03/04/20 (3 weeks ago) poured into a snifter at just above fridge temp 5% ABV. The beer pours hefe-hazy in a light amber color with nearly white head. The head recedes to a thin ring and leaves a little lacing. The aroma is grainy with corn, barley and rye. The taste follows with big rye, corn and malt character with a little yeast flavor and mild earthy hop bitterness. The mouthfeel is soft from the yeast yet sharply carbonated, thin bodied and dry in the finish. Overall, very good. Very unique and enjoyable to my taste.

Decanted from an 12 oz (355 ml) bottle into a Captain Lawrence, muffin top pint; bottled 03/03/2020.
A: Pours a hazy, bright, more straw than golden color with polished gold highlights, a solid, one finger, white head, rim+ retention, and sudsy lacing.
S: Yeasty. Aromas of barley grain, dried grasses, pepper, and citrus (lemon).
T: Dry. Flavors follow the nose. Balanced bitterness, though leaning that way and on the peppery side.
M: Light bodied with moderate carbonation.
O: Listed on the label as an "Unfiltered Rustic Lager." Based on the overall picture, Kellerbier makes more sense. Just one more in a series of great beers.
