BEER INFO

Brewed by:
Mahr's Bräu

Style: German Kellerbier / Zwickelbier

Alcohol by volume (ABV): 5.20%

Availability: Year-round

Notes / Commercial Description:
If you say A, you have to say U as well. Unspoiled, unfiltered and outrageously good. Stop a U, as we say. After all, you do not have time to order forever. And what comes to the table when you order "a U"? A very special, yeasty beers specialty with full-bodied-soft-malty character. Pleasantly tart and low in carbon dioxide, it is a beer that is just as good for a snack as it is for a relaxing end to work. Has there a "cult beer" said? Well, we should be right. Oh yes, "a" U, of course you can say. But experience shows that it rarely stays with one.

Hops: Hallertauer Perle

From the 500 ml. bottle with an expiration date of 04-02-19. Sampled on April 14, 2019, so not too far off.

Bronze-amber pour underneath a lingering cream colored head. It is unfiltered so there is a bit of fog.

Sweet cooked caramel malts are the immediate sensation on the nose and a sort of floral background. Also a slight cellar mustiness.

Medium body and smooth.

The taste has a sweet malt forward character and a mildly biting floral hop finish that lingers for a moment on the palate. Definitely has that German feel.

Many thanks to Snowcrash000 for this beer!

A - Hazy amber pour with some yeast particles sunk in the bottom of the glass.

S - Toasted caramel malt and earthy spice aroma.

T - Balanced straight through with sweet toasted malt up front, some earthy citrus and finishes very balanced.

M - Thick and velvety on the palate.

O - Very much an underrated beer. Diggin' this beer.

Lovely bronze body, slight haziness. Two finger soapy off white head that dissipates to a ring around the glass.
The aroma is surprising, a little bready, a little bit of honey. Grainy for sure and floral.
The taste is malty, grainy and with a touch of honey sweetness that is balanced out by full but delicate floral hops.
Soft, smooth mouth feel. Almost oily. This finish is seltzer-like and is dry as it gets.

Cleaner than expected copper orange bier with a thin white foam that recedes leaving only a ring around the edge of the glass.

Smells like Germany in a glass... but a mildy tart version. Bready yeast, sweet and toasted caramel, dried floral hops and a faint berry like tartness lingering in the background.

Taste follows very closely. If anything, it smells like it would be a tad more tart, but it's actually more sweet. Honey soaked biscuits oozing with wildflower honey.

Feels unexpectedly more crisp,dry, and bitter, yes bitter! Superbly easy to drink.

A wonderful brew. Not what I was expecting with the tart aspect, and maybe that element is just me, but I like it. It works. This is remarkably drinkable and feels very high quality. I think I'll have another. Prost!

Purchased in Bamberg. Taste is roasted grain, and pilsner malt. Light body, high carbonation, sweet. Great summer sipper. I will have to get this again. Very clean.

Pours an unclear dark yellow with a thick crown of soft head.

Smell is clean, crisp and bready. Some herbal notes and floal hops.

Taste is superbly clean and crisp. Smooth bitterness and a bunch of herbal and floral notes circle the terrific crackery malt base. Hints of toffee and leather, and a long finish.

Mouthfeel is medium, soft and smooth with sharp carbonation.

Overall, just a terrific kellerbier from one of the best German breweries.

Pick up a bottle during recent visit to Austin, had never come across it before.

Poured from a bottle into a tall hefe glass. Nice initial head and lacing, atop slightly cloudy golden yellow. Grassy smell and taste. A nice earthy bitterness. Enjoyed it and will look for other beers from this brewery.

A - slightly hazy tan to auburn, soft pillows head

S - metal, grain

T - toasted biscuit, mild toffee, caramel...a gorgeous, albeit it light malty taste. Noble hops keep things balanced, slightly spicy.

M - super crushable, almost addictive

O - a super balanced lager. Not too malty, not too hoppy...likely falling on the Zwickel side. Delicious!

Pours a cloudy very hazy brownish tinged orange color. Thin off-white head dissipates quickly leaving no residual head.

Aroma is a very fragrant array of bread, grain, some yeast, and a hint of citrusy hops.

Taste is very bready with some grain and citrusy hops notes. A bit skunky. Slightly bitter hops on the finish have a hint of a citrusy flavor. Some earthy bitterness lingers on the finish.

Feel is light to medium bodied. Mild carbonation. Semi-dry finish.

I'd love to try this one fresher - while note bad, it does seem suspect that this is an old bottle and with no dates, I have no way of knowing one way or another. That being said, its a solid beer.

This keller bier has nice bite to it. The hops bring a fresh character to this. Dark orange/copper in color with not much head to speak of. It’s unfiltered, so it’s pretty hazy.MOuthfeel is a little light for this style, but it’s still pretty good.

500 ml bottle into lager glass, bottled on 5/16/2017. Pours slightly hazy deep golden amber color with a 1 finger dense off white head with great retention, that reduces to a thin cap that lingers. Nice spotty soapy lacing clings down the glass, with a fair amount of streaming carbonation retaining the cap. Aromas of big cracker, bread dough, toasted biscuit, light nuttiness/pepper, and herbal/grassy earthiness. Damn nice aromas with bready malts and light-moderate earthy hop notes; with great strength. Taste of big cracker, bread dough, toasted biscuit, light nuttiness/pepper, and herbal/grassy earthiness. Light herbal, grassy, peppery bitterness on the finish. Lingering notes of cracker, bread dough, toasted biscuit, nuttiness, pepper, and herbal/grassy earthiness on the finish for a while. Incredible complexity and robustness of bready malts and light-moderate earthy hop flavors; with an awesome malt/bitterness balance, and zero cloying/astringent flavors after the finish. Lightly increasing dryness from lingering bitterness. Perfectly clean on lager flavors, with zero yeast notes present. Medium carbonation and body; with a very smooth, creamy/bready/grainy, and fairly sticky balanced mouthfeel that is fantastic. Zero warming alcohol as expected of 5.2%. Overall this is a fantastic kellerbier! All around outstanding complexity and robustness of bready malts and light-moderate earthy hop flavors; very smooth, clean, and refreshing to drink with the mellowly bitter/drying finish. Amazingly rich and clean Pils/Munich malt flavors, with solid earthy hop presence and balance. A highly enjoyable offering, and spot on style example.
