A: The beer is clear light amber in color and poured with a two finger high beige head that has good retention properties. A moderate amount of carbonation is visible.
S: There are aromas of caramel malts in the nose.
T: The overall taste is rather malty and has flavors of caramel in the flavors--somewhat similar to that of a märzen--along with some notes of bready malts and yeast and hints of spices. There's a light amount of malty sweetness and hop bitterness.
M: It feels medium-bodied and smooth on the palate with a moderate amount of carbonation.
D: The beer isn't that difficult to drink but I couldn't see having more than one of these in one night.

A - Pours with a small head of off white foam on top of an amber-brown body with light haze. The head settles at a moderate pace but leaves little lace on the glass.

S - A lightly fruity aroma with some toffee and red apple notes.

T - Lots of bread and toffee up front with red apple yeast notes. Some caramel and more apple in the middle as well as a bit of spice in the finish.

M - Medium-thick body, moderate carbonation, and a balanced finish.

D - Oddly, this seems more like an English winter warmer than a German beer. Even so, it is quite pleasant, if not overly complex, and it is certainly drinkable enough.

Now this an odd beer,it is a zwickel/keller beer for sure but it also has some fest beer qualities to it,making for an interesting hybrid in my mind.Poured into a half liter stein a hazed copper color with a nice fluffy white crown atop that left broken rings of lace as it settled.Toasty with caramel and anise spice in the nose,not much presence but the malt qualities are distinct and nice.Quite dry and toasty at first on the palate with some of that central European iron-like quality,then some honey and caramel malt creeps in the finish.I like this beer but I cant define it,a hazed marzen/fest beer maybe?

On-tap 11/7/09 at Track 84, in Warwick, RI, served in a stange glass.

A: The beer is a light coppery brown color, with a large off-white head that fades slowly and leaves a thick lace on the glass.

S: The aroma is of light caramelized malts, citrus, lager yeast and a touch of hops.

T: The taste is estery up front with flavors of caramel and some spice. Then some lager yeast and light malt breadiness comes in. The hops presence is mild but complementary.

M: Smooth and crisp, light-to-medium body, medium carbonation, finish is clean.

D: Tasty, goes down easily, not too filling, mild kick, good representation of style, this is nice milder beer with a good amount of flavor and substance to make it worth drinking for a while.

500ml bottle poured into my Southern Tier glass. Darker amber in color with a thin white head barely covering the top. Nice retention and decent lacing.

Aroma has crisp fruits mixing with some sweeter caramel. It's got some grainy, bready notes to it as well. Pretty clean, crisp and smooth aroma overall.

The taste follows through with a mix of light, crisp fruits and sweeter caramel and toffee notes. It's crisp in the finish and the light fruit flavors linger. Nicely balanced and very flavorful beer of the style.

The mouthfeel is medium bodied with carbonation being a little above average. Overall, it was a very solid beer of the style. Very clean, crisp and flavorful.

Draft at Cafe Berlin in D.C.

Transparent, orange body with a half inch of white head. German lager and fresh hops aroma. Similar flavor. Fresh, quaffable, delicious.

A - Honey amber, medium head. nice ring of lacing that holds up through the whole beer.

S - Sweet crisp nose with a ton of sweet honey. Malty and light, some light molasses and hints of sugary covered dates. Sugar cookies and faint grain.

T - Chewy malt, mildly bitter grains. Light and crisp, a very nice balance between sweet/bitter.

M - Light bodied, perfectly carbonated, mildly viscosity. A bit chewy and semi dry. Very drinkable.

O - Great balance and smooth flavors, an enjoyable German style celebratory beer.

Poured from the bottle into a nonic pint glass.

A good but hazy amber body hinting to dark brown to just under the head. Head color is an off tan with some foamy like retention. Head is fairly small though.

Off the pour was a smell of ripping barley grain. Closer nosing senses less of that, and more grain malt muted sense. Light brown bread and yeast and a typical sense of dough.

Taste is light due to a noticeable wet feel. Following the nose of brown bread but with a watery texture. Palate senses weakened malt and prickly carbonation. Finish brings some bread yeast sense.

Overall not that great but certainly not horrible. Other Kellers were more interesting to me, but I could have this again no problem.

Poured into a Celebrator pokal. Pours a slightly cloudy medium coppery amber with an active half finger off-white head that dissipates slowle to a thin film which has good retention, no lacing. Pleasant aroma of caramel malt, light stone fruit, and aromatic herbs. Flavor of toasted and bready malts, mild dark fruit, somewhat sweet. Finishes with mild malt, apples and light hops. A quite nice flavor progression and great flavor combination. Medium bodied. First European example of this style; glad to have tried it and looking forward to drinking this again.

This is a nice beer for a night cap. It has the nutrients, supposedly, needed for a good night's sleep and it tastes good.

Looks like a cloudy caramel liqueur with a medium sized white head. Foam dies down to a thin collar, minimal lacing. Swirling produces a bit of fizz but not much foam.

Fruity aroma. Orchards. Light toasted bread dough. Some light spice

Taste is sweet and more of an apple fruit. Malt is light but present to give it a nice body. It has a bit of zest to it, can't quite place it. Maybe some Noble hops here and there? Lack of body hints at low carbonation, but this has a nice fizz on it. Still, the lingering of film doesn't quite sit right with me.
Overall a good beer. Good for the night. I'd say a good apple pie would pair well here

On tap at Max's today.

The beer pours a copper amber color with good head retention and lacing. Really don't get much on the nose... just some sweet malt and a hint of burnt toast. That's pretty much it. The nose is more of the same, with a hint of pepper and light dry citrus. The light hoppy bitterness is sufficient to keep the malty sweetness in check. Mouthfeel is medium bodied, with a fairly long, malty and burnt toast finish.

While nothing spectacular I suppose, this was still a pretty tasty beer.

On-tap at Beachwood BBQ,

A: Pours amber with a moderate white head, solid retention, fair lace.

S: Dominated by the minerality, with a hint of sweetness.

T: The best way I can describe this is as a keller-marzen. Classic sweet Munich malt flavours are matched with some great minerality, very tasty.

M: Dry at parts, but the residual sweetness is a tad much at times. Carbonation is nice and soft almost cask like which I liked.

D: I love kellerbiers because I know I'm always going to get an interesting brew, this is another one of them.

This was in a wooden cask that was tapped at the Bier Garden's Oktoberfest celebration. A dark auburn brown body with a two-finger tan head that died quickly and left little lace patches. Has a bitter hop smell as well as some oakiness, natch, and a touch of spicy citric notes. The beer is smooth and creamy thanks to sitting in that cask but still has a sharp twinge from carbonation. The malt base is sturdy and gives off breadiness and a touch of sweet caramel - the hops are dominant and there is a citric, spicy taste that is crisp that dominates the beer. Was enjoyable and worth a try.
