COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
A crisp unfiltered Kellerbier. This traditional Bavarian style originated from the small artisanal breweries of Franconia, where Kellerbier is still a favorite beverage in the local beer gardens.

JaBier (4995) - Capital City, Ohio, USA - MAY 9, 2010
Sample at CBC. Clear yellow pour with a medium white head. Malty nose, but something is off. I originally described it as toilet water, but it’s actually more like pool water. Very chlorine heavy. Flavor is creamy and butter with some grassy hop for balance. Flavor isn’t too bad for a summer session beer, but the nose definitely needs some work.

hopscotch (9489) - Vero Beach, Florida, USA - SEP 13, 2009
Bottle… Hazy, straw-colored ale with a small, fizzy, white head. The bouquet is of pale malt, stale white bread and lemon peel. Full-bodied with laid-back carbonation. The flavor is of biscuit malt and earthy hops. Mojave-dry finish. Thanks to DragonStout for the bottle!

JCB (3999) - Durham, North Carolina, USA - AUG 26, 2009
12oz bottle from BeerVirgin72 - thanks, Dawn! I found this a very refreshing brew, almost a more clean and spicy version of the yeasty, sedimental Kellerbier I’m more familiar with. Maybe a cross with a pils if that makes any sense. Hazy pale gold, nice carbonation, medium mouthfeel. Nothing world-beating about this beer, but I enjoyed it.

BuckeyeBoy (2863) - Boise, Idaho, USA - AUG 22, 2009
Bottle Pours out a cloudy straw topped with a foam white head. Aroma of light lemon zest and some sour notes. Taste a little of the citrus along with a little wheat.

IndianaRed (2585) - Boise, Idaho, USA - AUG 22, 2009
Bottle pours a hazy dingy pale yellow Spicy sweet lemony aroma. Slightly skunky lemony light grain flavor. Very high carbonation and a soft wheaty after taste with a surprisingly bitter trailer.

JoeMurphy (41) - Ohio, USA - AUG 13, 2009
A pleasant enough lager, smoky taste of crisp bittering hops, just enough body for a summer beer that doesn’t go all the way to lawnmowerland. They say it’s unfiltered, but you could read the newspaper through the bottle I poured... a difference between bottle and tap, perhaps?

Pours a light golden color with a nice white head. Very fuity smell. Taste crisp, but not much to it.

dkoonce (911) - People’s Republic of Athens, Ohio, USA - JUL 17, 2009
On tap at Brew Week in Athens. Light om color, with no head. I’m expecting the typical fruity wheat beer. But, this is actually quite smooth. Some fruity notes, but not overbearing and not cloying.
