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...

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.

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.

500 mL bottle,

A: Pours a hazy orange with a medium white head, leaves solid lace.

S: Notes of orange marmalade and bread, nice minerality.

T: Big mineral flavours, some earthy hops on the back end. Really no sweetness.

M: Very dry, crisp, a refreshing beer.

O: I enjoyed it, though it doesn't have the overall complexity I've found in others of its style. Worth a pickup though if you like kellers.

Got a swing top from EuroMarket for $3.50. The hopping is pretty mild, but there's a gentle spice in the finish and balancing bitterness. It's a maltier lager up front, with toasty biscuit, a hint of caramel, and clean grain. The hops build slowly in the finish with a citrus edge, but otherwise this is just a pleasant, balanced (and hazy) lager.

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.

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.

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.

Very pleasing creamy amber beer.

Beautiful orange amber color with a slight cloudiness that gives the beer a frosty jewell-tone look in the glass. Quite creamy in the mouth, a pleasing effervescence. A bit woody or astringent on the tongue. Malty flavors dominate with hops coming forward later. Just a little tart and citrusy but well balanced by the malt.

I've been trying examples of Kellerbiers when I find them here in Germany. An interesting style that produces a lot of flavor for modest alcohol.
