Pours a crystal clear orange to golden color with a huge, stable head.

Smells of toasted grains, lighter hay and dried noble hops. Has an additional note of grass to it, together with salted crackers.

This drinks perfectly refreshing with a light and well carbonated body.

Tastes of caramel covered straw and white bread dough, highlighted by a noble hop dryness. Atop its well balanced foundation settles a vivid carbonation, toning down the sweeter malt aspects in this effectivly. Finishes with an unforseen rusticness, a lighter toffee sweetness and just a glimpse of maintaining, leafy hops.

Very enjoyable and easy drinking, this exhibits an intriguing balance together with a very well-witted flavor composition.

Pours a clear, pale mahogany coloration with a large, foamy head slightly visible carbonation. Smells of quite toasted, grainy, bready malt and just a hint of herbal hops. Taste is quite dominated by the toasted, bready, caramel malt and ligher notes of toffee, dark fruit and licorice, with little hops coming through except for some light herbal/earthy accents, while there also is a slight estery spice presence to this, with just a hint of clove. Finishes bittersweet, with a light/medium bitterness and some toasted malt and estery spice lingering in the aftertaste. Smooth mouthfeel with a medium body and carbonation.

Quite a nice Dunkel that remains quite drinkable despite a surprising malt complexity, with some light herbal/earthy hops and estery spice balancing things out. This seems much more like Munich Dunkel than a Kellerbier to me, by the way.

From the bottle, it pours a lovely golden amber with a large thick white head that lasts as long as you enjoy the beer. It is nice in the nose, with a bit of malt, maybe a touch of caramel malt in there. In the mouth, a smooth, easy to enjoy malty brew. Yum!

An incredible dense chain of medium sized bubbles are rising to the top through a light amber colored very clear body forming a luscious multisized bubbled pillowy head
aroma noble spicy hops with a bready Munich malt aroma with even some caramel
nutty malt, some roast resulting in roasted hazelnuts a sugar coating, carried towards a spicy hop finish that is more spicy than bitter, lasting longer the bitterness dominates and is even a bit scratchy asking you to take another gulp. just a touch of metal
The plenty but well integrated carbonation makes this refreshing without becoming burpy or prickly
I had this before and was not impressed, but this time I am with this surprisingly well working Bavarian lager that seems to straddle between Dunkles and Helles.

Poured from the bottle into a pils style glass.

Deep caramel bronze and crystal clear. Some cola like sized carbonation sticking to the sides, not much, but some slow rising bubbles as well. Head is a fluffy off white to tan color, easily making a thick three finger head, with soapy retention. Nice looking brew.

Mild hints of clove and caramel on then nose, minimal herbality as well. Clean and a bit wet sensing, not much going on.

Palate comes a bit unexpected. Mild notes of thin caramel, through a slightly wet body. Light bodied and a bit of mild malt depth with not much going through it. Some toasty brown bread, but very fleeting finish. Mostly caramel and a fine sense of it.

Overall really not a lot going on here surprisingly, just a different take, but doesn't really grab me.

On-draft at Cafe Abseits on 4/8/2013. Served in a krug. Pours a translucent copper with a creamy, bright white, half-inch head. Nose expresses light malts and subtle floral notes - quite subdued. This beer is clean tasting with a light malt profile, a kiss of sweetness and a light, earthy hops character. Mouthfeel is light in body with an even carbonation falling shy of crisp and a trace of oiliness. Overall, a delicious, simple, easy-drinking lager with just enough character to keep you interested and going back for more.

Half litre bottle. This beer is still being brewed. Poured a fairly large head. Bronze colour, clear. No major aroma. Tasted a bit like the typical kellerbier but had some characteristics of a Helles. Corky, started sweet with a slightly bitter finish. Decent but there are better examples of keller/zwickel out there.

Apparently not retired. On gravity cask at Churchkey on 10.11.2010.

Pours a light golden color with a nice, thick white head and never ending lacing. Nose brought some nice pale malt along with some fresh, herbal hops. A bit of grass. Taste brought things together quite well, with the hop bitterness making itself more available than in the others I had at the event. Bready character was really nice, though it was a bit darker than some of the others. Quite tasty. Feel was light and refreshing. Very nice drinkability and perhaps the second-best keller that I've had.

Refreshing earthy malt aroma with hints of caramel and grassy hops. Foamy tan head actively fades to a thin film. Glowing golden beer holds streams of tiny bubbles. Bready malt flavors up front with a bit of caramel and butterscotch underneath. Herbal hops pick up towards the finish as does a moderate bitter bite. Body is solid and the carbonation is light, but somehow the beer manages to border on crisp. Refreshing, flavorful, and amazingly drinkable. I could sit in a biergarten for the better half of the day sipping on this beer.

Sampled on-tap at Cafe Abseits in Bamberg, Germany.

This vollbier or kellerbier poured a clear, dark amber color with slightly off-white foam which settled and clung to the glass. The smell was malty and lightly sweet with a sort of "malted milk" aroma. The taste was malty with some maltose sweetness, and a mild hoppiness overall. The mouthfeel was smooth and creamy with medium body and low carbonation. There was a touch of light malt sugar in the finish and it lingered a while. This was a very nice beer -- a bier typical of Franconia.
