Never had a kellerbier before, so this was somewhat of a new taste experience for me.

Appearance is hazy, style appropriate based on my reading. More cloudy than hazy if you're thinking like a NE IPA kind of thing. It's just a little murky, even after letting it sit for a bit after the initial pour. Saturated golden in color like a traditional pale ale.

Aroma: kinda funky actually, there's a definite yeast note. Its somewhat bready in that regard.

Flavor: malts tend towards the sweeter side, hop balance is tempered quite a bit by that.

Mouthfeel: just a bit sticky, it's actually closer to a robust IPA than you would ever find in a standard pale ale. Not sure if that is a kellerbier thing or something unique to this particular brew.

I liked having one of these but I might have been a little bummed with a six pack. Everybody should give it a shot, you might find it pretty drinkable and enjoyable.

Two Roads Brewing Company "Miles 2 Go"
12 fl. oz. brown glass bottle, "PKG 10OCT17 15:07" and sampled on 12/04/17
$2 @ Weis, Conshohocken, PA

Look: Very hazy golden body (it's unfiltered) with an orange sheen beneath a short head of white that falls shortly and leaves little lacing behind.
Smell: Yeasty with lightly toasty and grainy malt and an apple-like fruitiness.
Taste: The fruit comes forward in the flavor and is clear amidst the sweetish grainy malt. A moderate bitterness balances it and some of the lightly toasty grain found in the nose appears midway and then into the finish. It lingers shortly with some sweetness, fruit and a touch of spicy hops.
Feel: Medium-full in body with a fine, gently crisp carbonation that lends a little zing before it warms to become smoother.
Overall: An enjoyable beer that's perhaps a little full and sweet but which also offers a great malt component and yeasty fruitiness, and a surprising 6.2% alcohol by volume.

Hey, this isn't an American Pale Lager, it's a Kellerbier! This uncommon (in America, anyway) style of beer is a form of smooth, sometimes strong, unfiltered/uncleared lager originating in Germany. Been looking forward to trying this one, since Two Roads has been nothing but solid lately. Didn't want to go all in on a six pack until I knew it was of high quality, but now I'm really craving more!

Pours a naturally cloudy, very hazy orange color with no head retention or lace to speak of. Hmm, I'm kind of surprised this doesn't have much going for it from the initial appearance. I mean, even the recent gose-style beers from 2R have had head retention, which I found unusual. This one just looks like a still beer. I do like the color, though.

Nose is slightly-lemony and strongly-doughy with a protein-filled, oat-like overtone that fills my sense of smell. Almost sourdough, but not quite... freshly-picked/cut apple, light apricot and somewhat muted notes of wheat and rye-like spice. This is perfectly evocative of what a kellerbier should be like from the nose alone... a complex mélange of clean, fruity and spicy elements that only an unfiltered beer can provide.

Incredible flavor on this one too, and so complex for something with no adjuncts! Deep oatmeal cookie-like maltiness with surprising dark fruit (raisin/plum), apricot, apple and grape skin notes. A complex herbal-focused hoppiness provides an open-ended finishing aspect to this lager. This deserves to be savored and enjoyed slowly to get the most out of it, unlike many modern lagers (esp. hop focused "IPLs"), as it has a really complex and deft handling of malt that I rarely see these days. It tastes like fresh grown barley, almost like Grape-Nuts cereal... intense and very earthy.

Feel is similarly excellent. This beer feels almost effortless on the tongue, but it has a lot of character... from the moderated carbonation to the hefty body that drinks like a much bigger, bolder beer, this is a near-perfect example of the kellerbier style, adapted to 2017 brewing standards in the US. I'm a big fan of this one and will likely revisit it very soon. I've heard it's a form of "Winter seasonal" for them (probably a rotating seasonal selection alongside their other offerings that come around during colder climes), and I have to say... this kind of lager is potentially the most apropos for the Winter season itself. It's rewarding, hearty and full of flavor, maltiness, character and spice without being itself dark or "spiced." Highly recommended!
