A mass-market brewery simply could not make a beer like this. Unfiltered, unpasteurized, and bursting with flavor, it has phenomenal body and freshness. Hazy to the eye, and full on the palate.

6 week brewing time. Barley, yeast, hops and water.

Draught at Ottakringer Braukulturwochen, Vienna, shared by Werckmeister, thanks!
Yellow, hazy body, with a big, creamy, lacing, white head.
Light aroma of grass, flowers, slight citrus, sweet malts.
Tastes of grass, flowers, citrus, some herbs, some sweet malts.
Medium, slick mouthfeel, with a lively carbonaton.
Finishes medium bitter, grassy, floral, a bit zesty.

Nice. The nose is too light, but the taste is good, clean, fresh and with nice floral notes. Nothing special at all, but a refreshing Helles, perfect for summer.

Bit weat in aroma! Looks perfect thick foam. Tastes sweet and slightly sour. Simple but long-term relationship.

Hazy yellow color with small head. Grassy hops, a bit citrus, grainy. Taste is refreshing, grassy and slightly bitter. A nice Helles, doesn’t feel like a Kellerbier though.

Auch von diesem Lager kann man sicher keine Weltherrschaft erwarten, aber gewisse nette Nuancen offenbart es doch. Malz und Hopfen sind Einklang, während die Trinkbarkeit mehr als leicht ist und die Süffigkeit überzeugt. Getreide hält sich zurück, eine gewisse Fruchtigkeit ist im Hintergrund durchaus zu vernehmen.
