Hazy yellow with minimal white head. Aroma is candy, sugar, grassy hops. Whole aroma combination is somehow flat. Taste is mostly citrussy sour and a little sugar sweetness. Mouthfeel is grainy with much non aggressive carbonation, medium body. Overall ok, pretty standard.

Bottle from The Beerhive. Hazy pale golden body with a thin white head. Steady carbonation. Very faint lacing. Aroma of green apple, foam banana sweets and sponge cake. Flavour of apricot, straw and grass. Thin to medium body with a watery texture. Lively fizz. Clean and refreshing.

Sampled @ Ayinger am Platz, Starkbierzeit 2016. Opálos, beleszagolva érződik a pincebeli jó kis fingszag. Íze dohos, szűretlen, semmi sallang, tiszta keller íz. Nagyon könnyű, habos-kovászos nemespenész.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Slightly darker than golden, a bit hazy, some carbonation visible. Average head and persistence, some lacing. Aroma is cereal, white bread, slightly herbal/grassy and slightly fruity (lemon, maybe apple). Taste closely reflects the aroma, slightly on the sweet side, balanced by a hint of bitterness in the dry finish. Light body and just a bit of crispness, very easy but still pleasantly soft on both tongue and palate. Not impressive but well done

UPDATED: MAY 21, 2016 I bought this beer in Munich, Örterer Getränk Shop Leopoldstrasse. For the style, it is in my point of view, a good one. At the nose, the smell is discreet herbal. The body is yellow and clear, white and thin foam, average carbonation. The taste is a bit watery, a bit metalic, but it is acceptable, malty touch and hop giving herbal notes and bitterness, well balanced. It is a perfecy beer after the job. I drank it again in Paris, I could notice one side creamy and there is one side creamy, few wheat or discreet touch of banana, great for the style because it is not so easy to make a good kellerbeer.

Draft at the freaking brewery, or restaurant at least. Hazy yellow golden color with a two finger white head. Nice subtle aroma, grassy, malty, honey. Flavor is nice, malty and rugged. Slight grassy hops but not bitter. Lighter with a smooth feel, soft carbonation. Great for the style.
