2.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Bottle… February in Franconia (2011)… Clear golden lager with a mid-sized, fluffy, white head. The nose furnishes cereal grains and spicy, musky eastern European hops. Light to medium-bodied with a watery mouthfeel and active carbonation. The flavor is perfectly balanced and provides cereal grains, sourdough bread and spicy hops. Finishes crisp and fairly clean, but a touch grassy. Refreshing on a hot Florida day, but overall this one is basically a Franconian lawnmower beer. Carefully and cleanly brewed, but a lawnmower beer nonetheless. Thanks go out to erlangernick and Koelschtrinker for making this month of Franconian lagers possible!

4.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Apparently not retired. On gravity cask at Churchkey on 10.11.2010.
Pours a light golden color with a nice, thick white head and never ending lacing. Nose brought some nice pale malt along with some fresh, herbal hops. A bit of grass. Taste brought things together quite well, with the hop bitterness making itself more available than in the others I had at the event. Bready character was really nice, though it was a bit darker than some of the others. Quite tasty. Feel was light and refreshing. Very nice drinkability and perhaps the second-best keller that I’ve had.

Great fresh bread, cereal, sweet wheat/oat multigrain aroma. Quite a lot of herbs in the aroma, really fresh stuff. Bready flavor, sourdough, grassy flavor. Lacing sticks to the side of the glass, really sticks around. Medium brown color, lovely. Delicious fresh beer (best before Nov 2010).

Bottle. Sour milk, barnyard malt aroma. Hazy yellow-brown color with large head and moderate effervescence. Barnyard, hay malt flavor with light grassy hops finish. Excellent - a great bottled Kellerbier.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
0.5 L bottle shared with Rune and Gunnar@Plan B, København. Big lasting blond head. Clear, brass colored body. Soft, doughy malt aroma. A scent of grass and hay from the hops. Taste has a crisp and clean malt profile, slightly sweet, with toasted notes. Subtle hop bitterness, just enough to deal with the malts. Well-bodied. Easy drinking, balanced and harmonius.
