From the slightly out of date bottle, it pours a hazy coppery amber with a modest head that sticks around a while until diminishing to a thin layer.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.

Served cool from 500ml bottle into pilsner mug. Lover the flip-top.

A) Hazy copper colour, white head quickly fades. Yeast sediment in the bottle.

S) Nothing huge, light biscuit malts.

T) Dry, good quality malts are evident, hop bitterness is muted but definitely there on the aftertaste.

M) Lightly carbonated, goes down very easily inviting the next drink straightaway like every good German lager does. Bonus points here.

O) Yet another excellent German lager. The style is different enough from pilsener, helles, etc., to seek out. In my experience this is one of the best of the style.

On-tap. Pokal glass. @Homo Sibaris (Barcelona). Bright amber color. Veiled appearance. White froth, close crown. Lasting thin layer on top turns wider as the glass is swirled. Herbal & yeast lager aromas. Smooth sweet malty upfront followed by well balanced hoppy tendency. Medium body. Moderate carbonation. Clean bitterness lingers into a dry finish.
