From the bottle, it pours amber with a small head, quickly diminishing to barely a ring. Malt in the nose. The mouth enjoys the bready and some caramel malt flavor . Drinkable.

Bottle shared by Lyn Friday night, thanks for the opportunity!
Deep golden color with a frothy white head. Rich malty aroma and flavor with plenty of bready pils and caramelized malt sugars present. Very tasty.

Half litre bottle,

poured into handled Alt Bamberg handed mug.

A: Pale amber, hazy, medium head, moderate retention, plus a few floaters.

S: Cork with real farmyard style aroma, lots of hay.

T: Very bready, notes of wheat and slightly sour fruits.

M: Minimal carbonation, smooth, slightly thick texture.

O: Nothing overly memorable but a fairly solid offering.

500ml bottle served in a pilsener glass (thanks Rian!). Pours a burnt-orange hue with a translucent clarity and a fluffy, one-inch, bright white head. Clean nose - cereal grains and a light, grassy quality as well as a touch of malty sweetness at the back. Taste follows nose with a bit more cereal grain sweetness and sour mash at the back and just a kiss of noble hops in the middle. Mouthfeel is light and lively with a pleasant carbonation and a crisp finish. Overall, a very good kellerbier in my opinion and all the better for it being fresh. I've become such a fan of Franconian beers and this beer did not disappoint.

Had this on tap in Bamberg, and while I am a fan of the dunkel from this brewery, this one did not hit the spot. It was served in a stone krug, so I can't say much regarding the appearance besides that it had very little foam which lingered for quite some time. The smell and taste honestly reminded me of American Lager; not much except for sweet, grassy, weak malt. The mouthfeel wasn't great either; heavily carbonated for a Keller. I am a big fan of the style and have enjoyed other samplings from this brewery, but this beer really missed the mark.
