Ernest (6573) - Boulder, Colorado, USA - MAY 16, 2013
Bottle. Head is initially large, frothy/creamy, off-white, mostly lasting. Body is light amber. Aroma is lightly malty (toasted grain, cookie), lightly to moderately hoppy (apricot, flowers), with light notes of mandarin orange and peach. Flavor is moderately sweet, lightly bitter. Finish is lightly sweet, moderately bitter. Medium body, velvety texture, lively carbonation. Another solid entry from this brewery. Nice fruity nose, but kind of quiet as with their other beers. Nicely balanced and textured. I wish these brews had a more lively nose, but at least they’re clean and tasty.

JoeinDahlem (1366) - Berlin, Berlin, GERMANY - APR 10, 2015
Bottle. Only lightly hazed red-orange, suspiciously clear. Whiffs of diacetyl and oxidized caramel, ripe blood oranges and vodka. Has a month left but maybe not well kept. Leans sweet and fruity with a quick snap of mild bitterness, finishing tangy and sweetish. Does have an interesting juicy aspect but if you put Naturtrüb on the bottle, why not mean it?

KyotoLefty (7232) - Kyoto, JAPAN - APR 1, 2015
Bottle from Landbierparadies. Pale amber color, orange tints, tall, fine head. Herbal, flowery nose, candy. Sweet and fruity flavor, candy, oranges, flowery hops. Good bitterness. Too much candy-like sweetness is unconvincing. Decent peppery hop finish though.

Moravius (753) - Berlin, GERMANY - JAN 13, 2015
Flasche (als „Friedel-Bräu Kellerbier“, 50 cl, MHD: 05/2015) von Hopfen & Malz, Berlin. - Goldbraun, leicht trüb; sahniger Schaum. - In der Nase frisch grasig-würziger Hopfen, Karamel und eine schwach muffige Note. - Im Antrunk hopfenwürziger Hopfen und Karamel, auch etwas Nuß. Durchschnittlich rezent. Abgang malzbitter mit zarter, an grüne Äpfel erinnernder Säure, wenig hopfenaromatisch und etwas dumpf. Längerer, streckenweise unschön dumpf bitterer Nachtrunk. - Stärker karamelbetont als andere Kellerbiere, aber unsauber und mit deutlichen Defiziten im Hopfenbereich. Kein guter Vertreter seines Typs (ist ja auch nur ein umetikettiertes Lagerbier).

As Friedel Zentbechhofen Kellerbier. Many thanks for this bottle to Pivnizub & MoritzF. Pours hazy orange golden with a nice sized white head. Aroma of malt, little bread, grassy hops.

pivnizub (9165) - Bochum, Porúří, GERMANY - AUG 19, 2014
Bottle:Light amber coloured, hazy, big rocky off-white head;fruity-yeasty nose with a caramelly touch, also "green" aromas detectable, a slight hoppy touch as well;drier moderate bitter-sweet flavour, relatively soft and nearly medium bodied; slightly dry rural dark-malty and bitter finish. Only mediocre by franconian standards…
Earlier Rating: 2/4/2008 Total Score: 3.3
Bottle (purchased at the Brauerei): "Pale copper" coloured with a huge fluffy off-white head, a bit unclear, sweet-malty (toasted malt too) aroma with a good touch of a franconian barnyard and distinctive traces of hops; moderate to stronger bitter-sweet flavour, medium bodied, soft MF; lingering hoppy and toasted-malty finish. Another franconian goody.........

Beerhunter111 (9866) - Hasborn, GERMANY - FEB 5, 2014
Trübes bernsteinfarbenes Zwickel mit geringem Schaum. Geruch hopfig grasig, Geschmack angenehm herb, minimal säuerlich, süffig.

kappldav123 (5368) - GERMANY - NOV 22, 2013
Bottle (gusher!) looks good. Beer in the glass very zippy, huge head. Starts mild, malty, modest yeasty-dry. Mild sourish notes, hints of caramel. Finish still mild, but not washy, a bit metallically. Okay.

Idiosynkrasie (4640) - Bielefeld, GERMANY - NOV 9, 2013
500ml bottle [gusher!]. Cloudy amber colour with huge, frothy to macropore, diminishing, minimally lacing, off-white head. Grainy, strawy, bready-yeasty doughy aroma, a touch of hay, a puff of an efflorescence of lemon zest. Taste is minimally sweet malty-spicy, a touch of caramel, a touch of hay, a fresh, minimally tart touch of lemon and lemon zest; lively carbonation. Nice Zwickel - sadly a good deal of it was lost on the floor.

rosenbergh (8245) - Tampere, FINLAND - JUN 4, 2013
500 ml bottle. BB 12/10. From landbierparadies.com.
Clear hazelnut colour with a huuuuge fluffy white head. Nut, chocolate, wood, dryness, malt and mild hops in the aroma. The flavour is very dry nutty and woody with chestnut, milk chocolate, hoppy bitterness, malt and mild citric notes. Absolutely tasty. This is one of the tastiest beers with Lager written on the label. Very soft carbonation. Nutty and hoppy aftertaste.
