12 ounce bottle into dimpled mug, bottled on 3/19/2015. Pours lightly hazy golden yellow color with a 1 finger dense white head with good retention, that reduces to a thin cap that lingers. Light spotty lacing clings on the glass, with a light amount of streaming carbonation. Aromas of light lemon, cracker, bread, herbal, grass, light pepper, and yeast earthiness. Nice and pleasant aromas with good balance of pale malt and earthy hop notes; with solid strength. Taste of light lemon, cracker, bread, herbal, grass, light pepper, and yeast earthiness. Light-moderate earthy/spicy bitterness on the finish; with lingering notes of cracker, bread, herbal, grass, light pepper, and yeast earthiness on the finish for a good bit. Damn nice balance and robustness of pale malt and earthy hop flavors; with a great malt/bitterness balance and zero cloying flavors after the finish. Light-moderate dryness after the finish. Incredibly clean on lager flavors with zero estery yeast notes present. Medium carbonation and body; with a very smooth, crisp, and slightly sticky mouthfeel that is nice. Alcohol is very well hidden with zero warming present after the finish as expected of 5%. Overall this is a damn nice kellerbier style. All around great robustness and balance of pale malt and earthy hop flavors; and very smooth and crisp to drink. A very enjoyable offering.

(Re-reviewed 6-19-15. Pilsener glass. Bottled 15104.)

Had on tap at Market 65. Served in an Imperial/Nonic pint glass. (Pilsener glass).

Appearance: Pours a hazy gold with 2" of white head. Dispersed quickly to 1/4" head that lingered. Little effervescence visible. (Continuous streaming bubbles in 2015).

Aroma: Light, airy, salty and bready. (Clean, sweet, bready pilsener malt in 2015).

Mouthfeel: Soft; not as slick as the last time I had it (bottled). More effervescence on tap than bottled, but low by any measure.

Taste: Clean, slightly tart arrival. Malty with a hint of citrus across mid-palate. Really firm bitterness on the finish. The strength of the finish was really surprising given how light the beer comes across otherwise. Balanced. (Very classic German malt character).

Overall: A really clean and quaffable summer brew. A little lacking in depth to make it a regular, but much better than the last time I had it bottled. I could see this being my go-to beer for neighborhood barbecues. (Willing to make it a regular buy; very nice refreshing maltiness).
