500ml brown bottle. It pours an interesting orange color with a thick off-white head that lasts a good while. The smell is pretty grainy, liek fresh bread, there is also a kiss of grassy and lemony hops. The taste is definitely interesting, it is very citrusy with a nice hop bite, not very bitter, though not sweet. It has a bit of yeast twang to it. The mouthfeel is a bit overcarbonated, but it helps it be a bit more drinkable. It is a good beer, the best Kellerbier i have had as of yet. Serving type: bottle Reviewed on: 08-10-2010 22:18:09

Some spicies in the aftertaste liuke vanilla and honey. Drinkable and OK one but i expexted more. Where is the "huge ammount of hops?"

Hofstetten Brauerei, Ausztria St.Martin Mühlkreis, csapolva Sötét aranysárga színe van, belül pedig úgy gomolyog mint ha egy nyári gomolyfelhő költözött volna bele. Habja enyhén tört fehér, vastag, krémes, kemény és igen kitartó. Illata fűszeres, malátás és kissé csípős. Tartalmas íze van, tele malátával, komlóval, teljes kiőrlésű kenyérrel, élesztővel, kis karamellizált mézzel, borssal és egy kis földdel. Közepesen testes és szénsavas. Utóíze fűszeres, komlós és kiszárítja a szánkat. Egyszerű egy pincesör és mégis remek, könnyen iható és tartalmas.

Pours a light amber color with an off-white head. Aroma is malty of toasted malts, caramel, and some bread. Flavor is the same, nothing really exciting.

Sampled on 1/13/2011. This kellbier pours a slightly hazy deep orange copper gold color from a 50cl bottle. Small to medium sized white foamy head with nice retention and good lacing. The aroma is caramel, fruity, bready and sweet. A medium bodied Kellerbier. The malts are caramel, fruity and sweet. The hops are floral and citrusy. It’s a little hoppy for a Kellerbier, but it kind of works. Nice carbonation. Has a nice earthy, mineral taste as well. Works well against the sweet malts. Very drinkable, would work well as a session ale. Mouthfeel is full and round. Finish is clean and smooth. Aftertaste is slightly sweet.

UPDATED: OCT 14, 2010 500 ml bottle picked up for me by beastiefan2k. Chg No 31902091 printed on back label. Pour is a cloudy hace orange golden with a noisy two inch white head that falls with soapy lacing. Pretty. Aroma is mildly sweet malt, along with an earthy dirtiness and mineral note. Taste is the mild biscuit sweetness of the malt, followed close behind with a nice toasted grain and finishing with the earthy mineral. A spicy / grassy hoppiness is present throughout. The sweetness returns, and lingers some in the long finish. Palate is unfiltered, medium to light bodied, an almost creamy mouthfeel that is paired with effervescent carbonation that along with the mineral, dries the beer out nicely. Easy drinking, fun beer.

Bottle at Churchkey, courtesy of Rory and Ollie from Northern Ireland, thank you gents! Very malty, slightly syrupy beer, resembles a barley wine. Decent enough.
