P: Pours a hazy speckled golden amber body. Capped with a beautiful bone colored half inch of milky head. S: Sweet sticky caramel, praline, buttery aroma, wheat, orange bitters, sun kist grain and hints of chewing tobacco. T/M: Raspberries hit the back of the throat on the initial sip and brings forth apple peels, tart lemon and orange swimming around a field of wheat. Strong metallic taste, ground spices and loads of b-vitamin bitterness. Has a faint similarity to rum and coke. Strong tobacco notes in the end like shoveling a hefty helping of Levi Garrett into your mouth. O: I really liked this beer. I was on the fence when I purchased it but I’m glad I did. Taste was much more complex than the nose. Rich toasted caramel, spice, tobacco what more could you ask for. Serving type: bottle

DuffMan (9593) - the land of bitumen, beef & beer, Alberta, CANADA - FEB 18, 2014
Bottle, shared with Parksy. Very hazy deep golden/orange. Nice wheaty biscuit malt with notes of quince and hay. No real hop presence. Very nice session ale.

EithCubes (5633) - New Jersey, USA - FEB 9, 2014
Bottle, seems to be my 4500th rating at RB. Nose is sweet and very malty, earth with rich caramel, light spice, very sticky toffee, slight fruit. Some nice and strong Bock overtones -- very inviting. Pours a beautiful clear amber with avg carb and a sudsy beige head. Medium body with light but firm bitterness, touch of minerality, feel somewhat flattish but still sticky, lots of caramel/toffee and earth, brown sugar, toasted malt in combination with fresh, rounded earthy hops with light spice and almost a touch of funk. Mild but very nice fruitiness, and clean and refreshing with only about half of the usual lager crispness. Seems to be (ahem) stronger than its gravity would suggest, but there’s a lot to like here, and I like this much better than their Saphir Bock. Heavy, though.

Golden in color, light haze with a light head. Nice easy drinking Kellerwiez. Nice beer I like the flavor it was crisp in the finish.

Cuso (7817) - Bratislava, SLOVAK REPUBLIC - OCT 12, 2013
Bottle from trade with Geiserich, many thanks. Orange golden color with huge white head. Strong malty aroma with honey. Sweet biscuit malty taste with honey, bee wax, light grassy hops in finish. More bock than Kellee beer, but overall OK beer.

overall - meh. a solid oktoberfest, but just unimpressive with respect to complextity. definitely "swillable" but nothing spectacular.

Nate (4200) - Indiana, Pennsylvania, USA - OCT 4, 2013
On tap at Pizzeria Paradiso (Dupont Circle). Pilsner malt sweetness. Beany noble hops. Brewed tea, sweet nutty character. Coppery amber clear with wispy frothy off-white head. Medium body with medium carbonation. Starts moderately sweet with pilsner malts, brewed tea, and a neutral fruity character that had notes of Hawaiian Punch. Light nutty bitter finish and smooth after, with light carbonic after bite.

Iphonephan (6254) - McLean/Jackson Hole, Virginia, USA - SEP 20, 2013
From a 50 cl bottle at home. Pours a hazy copper with a bubbly off white head. Malty nose. Some flavors of caramel and tropical fruit. Not much hoppiness. Smooth, crisp finish.

Elwood (3336) - Leesburg, Virginia, USA - SEP 9, 2013
Serving: 500 ml. bottle from State Line Liquors. It pours a hazy ruddy amber color with a frothy off white head. The nose is sweet with florals and perfume. Slightly sweet on the tongue with biscuit, caramel, and honeyed melon flavors. Interesting. Medium body with lower carbonation and a lingering finish. I can see the Oktoberfest comparisons but definitely different.
