3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Sampled on 9/1/08. This Kellerbier pours a medium orange gold color from a 50cl swing top bottle. Medium sized white foamy head, with decent retention and nice lacing. The aroma is cereal and grain, a touch herbal and floral. A medium bodied ZKL (Zwickel/Keller/Landbier). How is that for an abbreviation? The malts are cereal and grainy, bready and a little caramely. The hops are spicy and floral. Nice balance. Good carbonation. Kind of a run of the mill German lager, well its much better than that, but very drinkable. Mouthfeel is full and round. Finish is clean and very smooth. Aftertaste is slightly sweet.

3.2 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle from Liquid Solutions. Gold color with a 3-finger firm white head (which left rings upon dissolution). Aroma is lightly bready with a fair amount of noble hop. Medium body with creamy carbonation. Flavor is lightly sweet malt, a tad yeasty/bready, and the hop is not so strong as expected. Quite strong in flavor and aroma, but it is not intense, just really there. A very tasty thing in a non-intensive way.

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Head is initially average sized, frothy, white, mostly lasting.
Body is clear medium yellow.
Aroma is lightly to moderately malty (toasted grain, cereal, husks), moderately hoppy (herbs, flowers), with a light note of honey.
Flavor is moderately sweet, lightly acidic, lightly bitter.
Finish is lightly sweet, lightly acidic, lightly to moderately bitter, slightly husky.
Medium body, watery texture, lively carbonation.
Like the other Innstadt beers I’ve tried, the malts are fairly crude and husky. Nice floral/herbal hop punch in the nose, though, and a nice lasting head.

Flip-top bottle: Straw golden coloured, slightly hazy, smaller stable white head; stronger sweet-malty and a bit grainy nose, herbal-hoppy aromas in the background; robust sweetish flavour, light to medium bodied; sweetish-malty finish with a delicate, but nevertheless distinctive hoppy "tail". A tasty, hearty Bier
