This beer is in many regards a standard Kellerbier of the Bamberg region. What sets it apart from any other beer that I had so far of this type is its hoppy aftertaste that is herbal and also peppery. Not sharp but long lasting. Like green pepper pepper. I am not sure if I entirely like this but it gets my points for standing out. It could grow on me.

Pale amber colour, tiny head, clear. Grassy aroma with notes of Saaz. Tasted bittersweet and peppery, uncomplex. Finish was long and peppery. Smooth mouthfull, body was slightly heavy for a Keller/Zwickel, low carbonation. Uncomplex rough and ready country style beer. Didn't stand out in a good or bad way.

From the bottle, it pours a clear amber with a modest head. Grass and a touch of malt in the nose. The mouth gets the same, with a late hop hit that leaves of a bit of flavor in the mouth. Feels nice!

Sampled on-tap at the brewery pub in Merkendorf.

This lager poured an amber color with white foam that settled. The smell was mild with a bit of maltiness detectable. The taste was tangy and somewhat zesty with nice maltiness and good hoppiness in balance. There was a slight taste of caramel malt. The mouthfeel was smooth and dry with medium body and low carbonation. It was malty throughout, but with a mild and lingering hoppy finish. This was a very enjoyable beer.

Pours a clear amber color with a small, bubbly white head.

Smells of old apricots, wet hay and lime zest, together with a whiff of dried grass.

Has a light, refreshing mouthfeel with a perfectly fitting medium carbonation, tied together by a late herbal dryness, which balances out the malts.

Tastes of slightly tart, toffee malts with a nice rustic note to them, gently entangled into lemon zest. Develops a pleasant, herbal, slightly fruity dryness, balancing the malts.
Finishes with even more gentle hop presence and its initial malt foundation.

Clean and inviting with a nice hoppy peak to it, perfectly balanced, light balanced and refreshing.
