Hazy deep orange color with frothy beige head. Aroma is mostly grainy with a hint of earthy hops. Taste follows with the grainy notes and some earthy bitterness. It's not really malty or sweet, quite dry actually. Medium body with medium to low carbonation. Overall it's a quite rustic feeling beer.

From 2012: Aroma sort of smells like butterscotch, color is amber, with lasting off-white head. Tastes like caramel and bread, slight metallic tinge. Just average...

What a surprise, I thought I did not like kellers because I've drank a terrible one years ago.. This one is actually nice!
It has a hazy orange color and a whitey foam somewhat dense, with some big bubbles on top.
Smell and taste are yeasty and filled with cereal notes; a nice fruity character and a subtle hoppy character are also found.
Body is at good level and carbonation balances; bitterness in the end is pleasant.

A sweet aroma with some subtle herbal and floral hops coming through. It's an opaque orange. Nice herbal hop flavor with some sweet malt and richness from the yeast. Finishes dry and quick.
Quite nice. Worth checking out, but perhaps not one of the best.

A: The beer is hazy dark yellow in color with some amber hues and has a moderate amount of visible carbonation. It poured with a finger high off white head that died down, leaving a thin head covering the surface and lacing running down the sides of the glass.
S: Light to moderate aromas of yeast as well as biscuit and bready malts are present in the nose.
T: The taste is similar to the smell and doesn't have much in the way of bitterness, but there are enough underlying hops to prevent any sweetness. Some hints of
M: It feels light- to medium-bodied and slightly chewy on the palate with a moderate amount of carbonation.
O: This beer seems to be a little lighter compared to other Kellerbiers but is still quite flavorful and a good representation of the style.

1 pint .9fl oz bottle
Served in a weizen glass

A - This beer pours burnt orange in color with golden highlights. It is hazy with chunks of yeast suspended in it. A normal pour produced almost no head. The little bit that rings the rim appears to be off-white or beige.

S - I dive in nose first and get a snoot full of caramel and toffee. I also get a little bit of toast. There are no discernible hops.

T - The nose of this beer doesn't lie. Up front it is sweet with caramel and toffee. I even taste the toast. However, it does have a little bitterness on the finish to help cut some of the sweetness.

M - Moderate to medium

O - This is a decent beer. I am not overly familiar with the style, so I am not sure how it compares. It is a bit sweet for me, but not a bad way to start my Sunday.

Local market just got this in and I figured I would try it. Pored it into a mug from the bottle. Resembled caramel in color. Very very smooth with a full body taste. A little bit of a sweet finish. Definitely worth going out of your way to find and try it.

Label description in German, then "BEST BEFORE 10 03 13" so a few months in code. Let's drop the brewery description in freetranslation shall we?

"The independent, Franconian variant of the cellar beer is brewed after old tradition. The untergärige (bottom-fermenting yeast), nature dim full beer is somewhat for pampered beer connoisseur. The nose takes easily sweetish honey note and fine fruit note aware. One loves it for its quite very drinkable taste and its mild, sharp type. This beer our fathers brewed already so."

Pampered beer connoisseur, lol.

Bright copper color, fully saturated with bright clarity. Tendrils of drippy lace in the glass, finely textured foam that remains in the glass for a good while.

Toasty aroma,malty with some mineral essence also. Feel is crisp and slightly sharp, though it smooths out quickly in the end. Pouring in the yeast adds a bit of fullness to the body. Toasty, nutty malt flavors, a hint of dried fruit leather in the aftertaste. Pretty drinkable, a nice traditional take on this historical style.

Date: Best before 10/03/13
Glass: Ayinger willi glass

Leikeim's kellerbier is a solid version of the style, featuring strong toasted bread and yeast notes with noticeable, but not imposing, yeast presence. The style itself is rare to encounter, and that this is available in some areas and $3 for a 22oz bottle should be a cause for happiness. A good-tasting, high-value kellerbier that I hope is around for a long time to come.

Pours a 2cm head of off-white, small to medium-sized bubbles. The foam has above-average retention, eventually receding to a thick ring around the glass and a single large island of wispy foam. Lacing along the sides of the glass is substantial, literally cobwebs of the stuff. Body is a pale brown color and opaque when out of the light, light brings out a reddish-orange center with yellow highlights to the beer, still opaque from suspended yeast. Carbonation is visible, but sluggish.

Aroma has a solid mixture of yeast, toasted bread, and a bit of toffee. Generally pleasing: assertive, but not overly so, with modest complexity.

Tasting opens with some general malt sweetness/smooth toffee-ness, mineral elements, and yeasty toasted bread. Mid-palate of modest bitterness, toasted bread, and slight toffee, which leads to a close of largely the same, with a heavier toffee presence. Aftertaste of yeasty, toffee-bread malts with a mid-level European hop bitterness hovering around every aspect.

The beer is medium-bodied, with medium-low carbonation, that results in a super-smooth and semi-bubbly mouthfeel, which is just a pleasure to drink. Finishes semi-dry, with modest stickiness across the palate.
