COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Note: physically brewed at Trabelsdorf until Dec 2010 and known as Beck-Bräu Kellerbier.

Gänstaller Bräu Kellerbier Mandarina is the same as Gänstaller Bräu Kellerbier, confirmed by brewer Andreas Gänstaller. Bavaria Mandarina hops have been used in his Kellerbier for years, replacing Spalter Select for late hopping. The name change was to feature the hop name at pubs.

3fourths (8455) - Boulder, Colorado, USA - OCT 20, 2009
UPDATED: MAY 31, 2013 first had on draft at Beck Brauerei in Trabelsdorf before Andreas left to start on his own. since then I’ve had it twice more at the Zoiglstube in Strassgeich. I rate it around 4.3-4.5, but give it a 5.0 because it’s a personal favorite, one that I dream of drinking every day. notice the ratings drop off the further you get from the brewery (and in bottles too, which Andreas has stopped doing for this beer in recent years). If you want a taste of the best kellerbier in Germany, make the effort and travel to Bamberg and then Strassgeich. the old rating: heavy cloudiness, light copper in color. nose of creamed semi-sour peach skin, snappy/woody/pine-nut hops. creamy and rich texture, exceptionally well structured with tight carbonation and a soft, silky mouthfeel. pear skin, grapefruit rind, prickly and spicy yeast... expertly crafted.

DSG (7536) - Tel Aviv, - SEP 24, 2009
UPDATED: FEB 11, 2010 [9/7/09] Botte sampled at my hostel in Brussels. Slightly hazy golden-copper color with a white head. Aroma is grainy with some malt, cooked vegetables, yeasty notes, a bit oh hops and buttery notes. Sweetish flavor with some husky graininess, yeast notes, vegetables, light sourish notes and a slightly drier finish. Medium-bodied.

VEry nice and refreshing, a little boring and not so hoppy, I like the keller ones.

jerohen (2053) - Bussum, NETHERLANDS - AUG 15, 2009
Bottled, thanks to caesar for sharing. Hazy orange coloured, thick white head. Herbal keller aroma, pretty nice. Bitter thirst quenching flavour. The beerstyle is very nice and underrated imho, but there are better examples out there.

caesar (5530) - Bunnik/Utrecht, NETHERLANDS - AUG 13, 2009
Bottled. Hazy orange color, thick off-white head, some yeast floating around. German aroma, herbal, floral, hoppy, slight dusty, like a good kellerbier. Taste is reasonably bitter, good malty background. Very decent kellerbier.
