4.5 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 17/20
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.

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.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
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.
