No canning date

Pours a cloudy golden copper with over a finger of semi-thick white cap; excellent retention, with foam a consistent presence on the surface throughout.

Aromas of deep grain, raw wheat and rye, gritty earthy tones, dark bread, and a subtle sweetness rising quietly for a soft finish; earthy, balanced, defined, and confident bouquet.

Taste brings a gritty grain profile upfront, with various grains, straw, and light grass, which eventually gives way to a subtle earthy sweetness toward the finish; smooth, straightforward, and drinkable profile.

Mouthfeel is light-medium bodied with a fluffy medium-high level of carbonation; approachable, with a good mid-palate crispness, and a slight bit of hefty carbonation to carry this one through.

Solid Kellerbier that is easy to enjoy and simple to digest; good profile and well-structured; solid option for the style.

Can at Stoddard's Fine Food & Ale, Boston, MA

A: The beer is clear yellowish amber in color. It poured with a finger high frothy white head. The beer got hazier as it poured out from the bottom of the can.
S: Moderate aromas of yeast are present in the nose.
T: The taste is very yeasty and has hints of grainy malts.
M: It feels just about medium-bodied and very chewy on the palate with a moderate amount fo carbonation.
O: This kellerbier is packed with aromas and flavors of yeast—much more than compared to other beers in the style.

Serving type: can

From 16 oz. can brewed in Germany and canned in Connecticut!
Moderate pour yields a one inch eggshell head over an rusty amber body with some nice lacing. Nose of biscuit/bread with a bit of lager yeast. Taste follows aromas with a nice touch of sweetness. So nice with a bit of spice on the nose as well as the palate. Very good feel and overall a real nice offering from all those involved on both sides of the Atlantic. Cheers!!!

Poured from the can into a pokal style glass.

Deep rich orange and chestnut brown body with excellent hued edges of color. Looks like a bock, but with a lighter more orange color. Rich lathery faint tan head, very creamy top easily making controlled three fingers of dolloped suds, and touch of crown like lacing and a thick soft puck. Beautiful looking brew.

Aroma is a wonderful bakers dream. Touches of earth and mostly woody caramel, with a hint of almost smoke. Slight sweetness sort of somewhere between rauch and sandlewood. Real nice touches of bakery dark bread, and even hits a little spicy.

Real excellent palate. Light bodied but full of flavor. Rich tasting light notes of caramel and soft bakery like yeast. Touches a spicy bread character, not quite rye but with splintery almost oaky like qualities. Real excellent bitterness and a particular unique dryness that is very much like altbier but without the fruity quality. Exceptionally clean to match.

A real winner of a keller, I could drink a ton of this stuff. Lacks a little bit of body, but is far too unique in flavor to say anything critical if at all.

Poured into a Seattle Beer Week pint glass. Pours a lightly hazy, medium to dark coppery amber with a two finger white head with great retention and lacing; looks great. Aroma of grainy biscuit malt, brown bread, hints of caramel; inviting. Flavor is bready biscuit malt, mild molasses, brown bread, hints of caramel, spicy and earthy. Finishes with light grassy hops and lots of lingering biscuit malt. Medium bodied with slight creaminess and sharp carbonation. I've had a few domestic keller biers that I enjoyed and this, appropriately is one of the better ones I've tasted. The malt is rich and moderately complex and leaves a quite full aftertaste for its ABV. For a low to medium powered lager, it has a lot of flavor. I liked this a lot. I'd like to try another style from this brewery.

A really solid kellerbier. It pours a dark straw color with a nice off-white head. Bready/biscuity flavor with just a touch of spiciness from the hops. Full mouthfeel, slightly creamy.

From the slightly out of date bottle, it pours a hazy coppery amber with a modest head that sticks around a while until diminishing to a thin layer. Lacing. Primarily malt in my stuffy nose. The mouth enjoys the creamy feeling of the beer and malty taste with some bitterness. Yum!

From Labirratorium. In Bavaria glass. After dinner. 1 month before bbf. Rancid aroma and taste and a bit watery but with a good dose of herbal hops to keep it interesting.

L: gives cloudy deep copper color.small white head that disolves rapidly like it should with this beerstyle.

S: herbs,caramel, malts, citrus fruits, candied sugar and floral notes.

T&F: start of with a creamy mouthfeel. The flavours follows much off the nose. Fruity and dry up front with light malts on the background. I sense both citrus fruits and something that reminds me of peaches in the flavour. In the middle I get more of that grassy feeling before it finishes of with a hoppy bitterness that stays long Inn the aftertaste. A little to hoppy in the finish for my taste

O: An interesting beerstyle to sample. It is a good and enjoyable kellerbier, but I think is better examples of the style out there.

Pours a clear, amber-bronze color with a small head, collapsing to a small sheet of lacing.

Offers a mix of coppery malts, walnut shell and lighter earth. A tart whiff completes the aromas, focussing entirely on its whole grain maltiness in an enjoyable complex way.

Has a medium carbonation, while drinking very smooth, due to a softening coalition between profound malts and a silk aqueous quality, complimenting the malts truly well.

Tastes of earth coated, old orange peel among rich, bright malts, signified by nutshells, young, scented earth and wild honey, opening the palate to a subtle fruitiness. A coppery note accentuates this foundation surprisingly well, without shifting the focus on itself, instead a blend of more earth and slightly sweetened toffee adds an additional layer to the taste. Finishes with a nice dryness among toffee and a gentle minerality.

Great beer, convinces by its perfectly put together complexity, while remaining easy drinkable.
