look: 4 | smell: 4 | taste: 4 | feel: 4 | overall: 4.5

On tap at the Castle;

Tapped a hazy clouded gold with a tight sticky 2 finger white cap that laced the glass in draining.

Aroma was pungent bread dough aromas with some subtle honey-citrus and grassy wild botanical tones.

Profile: sturdy bready malts in the front give a rich medium body and creamy mouth feel...ample German noble hops to balance; herbal-spicey tones...mid palate we get some of the complexity of an unfiltered full-of-life lager....hoppy bready sweetness is joined by the herbal bittering and some citrus-raisin tones....finish is crisp and a tad dry with medium bittering and a wonderful bread dough aftertaste.

Impression: This tastes like my favorite Munich helles but much more full of life...fresh, rich malt and yeast flavours, bright crisp hopping...well balanced and drinkable...if this was on tap all the time at my local watering hole I'd rarely stray from it as a favorite session lager.

Brown flip-top 0.5 litre bottle, best before Dec 2007, drank July 2007.

Poured into a straight sided Berliner Kindl half litre glass.

Poured the lot in and watched the sediment cloud the whole glass, the head soon left to leave a rim around the glass with bubbles coming to the surface and exploding. It is a dirty straw colour and doesn't look too inviting.

The aroma was of orange groves and farmyards, maybe I should see a doctor?

The taste is of dry cardboard which has been soaked in K9P.

The mouthfeel is fizzy and slightly sour in the aftertaste, nothing else.

I have had beers from this brewery many times over the years and have tried Kellerbiers (in both Munich and Bamberg) before. This bottle however is just about the worst German beer I have ever tasted. A great pity because I had been looking forward to drinking this beer for some time.

500ml bottle poured into my Spaten Seidel


A: cloudy honey gold colour, 3 finger creamy thick head with aggressive pour. head retention is average, but lacing is pretty good.

S: very fresh bread malty. I also get this coppery metal smell of it. Almost like a salty beef or something. The more i smell the sweeter it becomes with a syrupyness with some nuttiness.

T: lots of malt in the taste aswell. The metallic meatyness is still there. the sweet honey.nutiness is not so apparent. Very well balanced. Malt lingers long after in the aftertaste. No real hop profile

M- medium to high carbonation, thick body, filling!

D - I am starting to adore this beer style, it really is so filling and bread like, a meal in itself. Flavours are well balanced, a real favourite of mine, could drink all day.

Coming in a 500ml brown bottle with a swing-cap, BB 23/09/06, served chilled in a pint-size weizen glass.

A: as I choose to disturb the yeast-sediments in the bottle, it comes in a murky, dark orange honeyish hue, quite like a weizen; the white beer head is frothy at first, slowly settling down to a thin carpet sustaining throughout the drink; gently carbonated.
S: due to the yeast-sediments floating in the beer, the fore-note smacks of a faintest banana-ish fruity aroma as in Weizen, underlined by slightly ashy and floral hops, restrained caramely as well as roughly-crushed grainy malts with a touch of honey hovering in the background. Overall the aroma is really understated, but a malty theme is definitely there for graps.
T: very smooth-textured chewy and malty grist on the palate and underlined by a slightly lemony edge of hops; a fillingly salty-sweet bready and bitter-sweet grainy flavour of endless flow of malts prevails on the palate, but at all times enjoys a balance with hop presence (without any strong flavour though) to lift up the body a bit... An interesting, faintly spicy and sharp touch bites the sides of the tongue, with more lovely chewy, slightly doughy-sweet grainy aftertaste to linger...
M&D: just medium-bodied but retaining a sound and solid body throughout... This is only my third time to try this beer style, and I find this example rather balanced and smooth on the mouthfeel, due to not only the soft carbonation successfully achieved in bottle-conditioning, but also a balanced profile with a malty lead on the flavour and necessary hoppy intervention to soften the body. A "liquid bread" in all but name. Not bad at all!

Orange-brown color, very turbid.
Less than one inch of foam, quite ugly, and quickly falling. Not very beautiful apperance at all.
The smell is malt and caramel, but there are some other unpleasant flavour in the background, difficult to recognize.
Malt ans sweetness in the taste. Not good.
Light in body.
In the aftertaste: it slips away, leaving just some mal, caramel, and a hint of fruit in syrup.

*Reviewed on 07.07.2005

The beer is golden, sligtly hazed brown with a medium white somewhat thick head, excellent head retention for all 60 minutes and a nice lacing effect. Fresh smelling beer with a light malt smell.

The taste is where it is at, a wonderful aftertaste is the exceptional part, also contains a mellow malt taste, with hints of weak lemon. A little harsh at times but it was a pleasure in the mouth. It feels a lot heavier than a typical beer with this alcohol level. Not sure if it is the new taste of an unfiltered beer or what, still a worthy candidate as #1 in a session.

Final Thought: This beer has a very unique and original taste and comes from one of the most respected breweries here in Munich.

A cloudy golden-tea color. very active beading. Creamy, tightknit head that lasts and lasts.
Malty nose - Swee corn? Cot and maybe a little hop presence Taste is good - light malt, and a smooth full bodiedness, well rounded. Very refreshing w/ a slight tart endong that compliments the sweetness of the malt. Very drinkable and full mouthfeel. A good bier.

Pours a cloudy pale gold under a one finger white head with good retention and outstanding lacing. The mild malt nose is accented by a touch of citrus. The mouth is very prickly and medium bodied. The taste is smooth and malty, without the edge one usually finds in an unfiltered beer. There's a hint of sweetness in here, too, but the main experience is barley. A very mild hoppy finish leaves a refreshing aftertaste. Very drinkable.
