3.82/5  rDev +15.8%
look: 3.75 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 4 | feel: 4 | overall: 3.75

Pours a clear dark yellow with soft, fine head.

Smell is bready and slightly perfumed with notes of rye and citrus.

Taste is rich and bready with notes of oats, crackers, citrus and a nice, firm bitterness and a bt of creaminess.

Mouthfeel is medium, well carbonated.

Overall, a really nice kellerbier, which I assume has improved since the first review here.

Poured from fridge temp. Pours a yellow color with quickly dissipating head. Nose is lemon, orange, pine, resin, bread, wheat. Taste is fairly mellow. Some pine and orange - not much else. Mouthfeel is dry and light. Overall, a pretty decent beer.

2.51/5  rDev -23.9%
look: 3.75 | smell: 2 | taste: 2.5 | feel: 3 | overall: 2.5

Pours a filtered, golden-amber color with a small, froth head.

Smells almost completely muted, with just the faintest hint of sweetened dough being recognizable.

Has a lively carbonation among a body so light, that, just as on the nose, almost no flavors become recognizable.

Does not provide any taste evolution at all, while the beers straw flavor turns thin and thinner, creating a watery taste.

This reminds me of why I turned away from industrial made Lagers, as this taste nothing but boring and dull. The annoying thing about it to me is, that this got brewed by a small operation I had put high hops in.
