First time I try a kellerbier. It's a very interesting style.
It pours a lightly hazy golden body with a nice head. The smell and taste are a lot on honey, floral and grassy hops, clover, orange zest. Very mellow and balanced. The hop, malt and yeast characterisrics are well integrated and bring a bold beer. The bitter sweet profile is enjoyable and the beer stays drinkable all the way. Its creamy mouthfeel goes well with the whole thing.
Very nice

Huge biscuit notes, some bread crust and slightly hay like with a layer of herbal hops. Hint of sweetness in the finish. Could drink a few of these in one sitting.

Served in a Munique glass, it pours a murky and pale yellow tilting towards an orange hue. It forms a three-finger head, creamy and frothy with excellent retention.
Nice lacing and very good carbonation visible.

Upfront lots of bread in the bouquet, biscuity. Hay, a slight yeasty funkiness, and a faint citric fruitiness.
Not very assertive.

A tight beer with character.
Upfront a very freshening carbonation and some initial and mild sweetness reminiscent of bread and malts. Grass and hay then make its appearance along with some overripe red apple, almost sour.
This beer is unbalanced tilting towards bitterness, and the finish is long and dry.
Light + body, pleasant carbonation,

A style that I would love to try some more, and definitely a very nice beer.

500ml swing-cap bottle poured into a mug.

Cloudy orange amber color with massive silky off-white head compiling with plenty of small effervescences that withstands with great retention, it slowly subsides to a layer of eternal foamy crown and leaves lots of lacing along the glass-side, high visible carbonation with some floating sediments.

Malt with a big bready aroma, honey, toffee, chalky yeast, sourdough, acidic, a little bit musty, yeasty sourness, and fruit preserve reminds me of apple, peach, and raisin.

Sweet bready malt as a foundation of the flavor structure, yeast plays an important role at the front stage providing sourness, tartness, acidity, fruitiness, and wee mustiness. Hop is still there through carefully notice with a deep sunken bitterness behind the palate.

Medium body with smooth mouthfeel and some lively carbonation generating a bit crisp and nicely refreshing feel, dry finish.

Good beer indeed, I have no expectation at first but it is surprisingly good with a wide variety of aromatic scent and tasty palate.

500ml swing top bottle poured into tulip 7/4/16

A slight haze in a golden orange body, tiny particles throughout, lots of tiny bubbles popping up from everywhere feeding a short lived two finger foam that leaves a few partial rings
-second pour is completely hazed and the foam seem to retain better, lots of sediment towards the bottom half of the bottle

S bruised apple, some hard to place spice, bread dough, wet leaves, almost musty, some pie crust and maybe a little filling to go with it

T earthy, lots of honey I didn't really notice on the nose, still has a spice apple pie filling but not as strong as the nose

M has some body for lager, tiny bubbles fluff it up, slick on the palate and just a little sticky on the lips, leafy, earthy finish lingers

O enough going on to keep you from getting board and very drinkable, something I could session on a hot day

One of the better lagers I've had recently, its not boring and smashable for sure, I'll grab this again when in the mood for a flavorful lager
