This is more like a light watery bock style. A little bland.

I hope I had a bad bottle, but something seems to have been off. Upon opening, the plum aroma was very pleasant. The pour was nice, light head. The appearance was crystal-clear with no sediment in bottle, which immediately conflicted with what I'd read about the beer. The color seemed a little off too, with a grey overtone muting the color. The taste was initially pleasant, sweet and fruity with mild carbonation, but the aftertaste was very unpleasant. I struggle to describe it, but dirty-chemical comes to mind. I couldn't finish it, and poured it down the drain. I wouldn't even let my dogs drink it because I was worried that it might have been a contaminated bottle.

I don't think this bottle was expired since the complete lack of sediment or turbidity tells me that what was filled into this bottle was not representative of their normal product. I wonder if a really old keg was used to fill it or if something went awry in the filling lines. Regardless, it points to questionable quality control and I will not be buying again.

This is appears to be my first authentic Kellerbier. I looked up the style to get some frame of reference. This one seems to fit the description for the most part. Pours a fairly cloudy, deep dark amber with a white foamy head. Aroma is mainly sweet with some yeast. Taste is very sweet. Like carmel and honey, with some toasted malt similar to a sweet, fresh baked dark bread. Also crisp like a pilsner, and a very faint hop bite. Finishes with a lingering candy sweetness, almost like some sort of sugar coated cereal. Nice lager.

Poured into a stein from a half-liter bottle. I'm not sure if this was the proper glassware but fack it.

I haven't seen too many beers with a color like this brew. It's got a pale brown body with blonde hues and a quite cloudy appearance. The head doesn't stick around long, but it does leave a frothy lace behind.

Molasses is big on the nose, as is what I would have to call butterscotch. I also get an oatmeal like aroma. It smells like a sweet breakfast.

Molasses continues its crusade to the tongue, but here there's some caramel joining, a light touch of hops that have a slight vegetable quality, and a strong dose of minerality.

Despite the heavy malt flavors, this beer is light and feels thin-bodied, but in a good, drinkable way. It's refreshing and has a stiff bitter finish that undoes all the preceding sweetness.

I'm still learning about these kellerbiers, but I enjoy this one. I think I need to delve into this style much more to learn just how well this beer represents it.
