The two fingers of head that sits on top of its peachy amber body is light and fluffy and recedes rather quickly. The sides of the glass bare no lace. Despite its haziness you can still see that it is well carbonated.

Fresh grassy tips poke out of its zesty orange center. Lemon rind and white pepper make things a bit more interesting. There's a rich, spicy breadiness prominent throughout with a streak of caramel. It's not overly pronounced but its spicy and bready nuances make for a good smelling beer.

The taste is more sweet than I had anticipated. The caramel is sturdier and the breadiness is more rich. A dash of spiciness adds some prickliness but as with the lemon peel, these qualities remain on the edges of its flavor profile. A musty earthiness is the more encompassing impression.

Perhaps it has something to do with it making the long trip from Germany to Halifax, I found this beer very under-carbonated. It explains why I found its sweeter, weightier qualities more prominent. It's light to medium bodied with a bit of slickness. For me, this was its weakest quality.

Again, my own expectations let me down. I was thinking this would be a staple and reference point for the style given its origins and I found it to be a lackluster example in terms of flavor, complexity and feel when comparing to other interpretations of the style I've had in the past. If I ever got the opportunity, I'd be more than willing to try this fresh to see how it compares.

Cloudy, golden-orange color with a large, off-white, bubbly head of thick foam. It smelled of grains, bread and yeast. There was a touch of clove aroma, too. It tasted of sweet grains, bready notes, yeast and clove.A light bodied and very easy drinking beer.

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

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.
