Poured from the bottle into a pokal style glass.

Creamy khaki to off white topped colored head on the pour. It forms very fluffy and nicely, with some very good retention. Body color is a muddy but pleasant chestnut looking brown, maybe a bit of orange color thrown in there too. Very very fine carbonation as well.

Very nice nose. Quite a good fruity sense off this brew. Smells almost like a bit of strawberry character which is quite nice! Light classic touches of caramel but not sweet sensing, almost more of this raspberry fruit tangy quality which is quite a bit impressive.

Nice palate if a little less than I was expecting. Light bodied nearly wet with a good sense of minerality, but not holy supportive of the passing flavors. Mid palate has a touch of herbal spice and clove, nearly comes off minty in a way. Finish just barely hints at some creamy fruity qualities, strawberry and raspberry particularly. Clean, particularly tangy fruit, but finishes quickly.

Interesting keller with some neat unexpected flavors, but seems to not really last on the palate. A bit more body to this and we have a real neat tasting brew.

Pours a cloudy brown color. Remains cloudy even after its had time to settle. Thin off white head dissipates leaving no residual head but sticky tan lacing is left along the glass.

Smell is rather bready with some nutty malts, a hint of spice, and some lager yeast. Simple but good.

Taste is somewhat bready with some roasted nut notes. Spicy finish with some grassy floral notes. Surprisingly complex flavor for a rather simple beer.

Feel is thick and almost chewy. Mild carbonation. Smooth and somewhat dry finish.

This is really a nice kellerbier - surprisingly complex given its simplicity. Ill definitely revisit this one in the future.

Hazy amber colour, with a normal head that fades leaving a good lace. Aroma is weak, I only detect some grains and caramel. Medium body, correct carbonaton. Taste of caramel and fruits. Correct beer, but nothing special.
