The naturally-cloudy Mönchshof Kellar beer is the result of Mönchshof's centuries-long brewing tradition and of the love of traditional beer brewing. This amber color, mild beer appeals to lovers of unfiltered beer, the way it used to be. A tradional Mönchshof beer specialty.

Unfiltrierte und milde Biere treffen verstärkt den Geschmack von Deutschlands Bierkennern. Mönchshof, die feine Spezialitätenmarke aus Kulmbach, greift auf diese alte Brautradition zurück und erweitert ihr Sortiment in diesem Bereich. Mit seiner appetitlichen bernsteinartigen Farbe und dem ausgewogenen, vollmundigen Geschmack spricht das neue Mönchshof Kellerbier (Alkoholgehalt: 5,4 Prozent, Stammwürze 12,4 %) vor allem die Freunde unfiltrierter Zwicklbiere an. Diese durften selbst „mitentscheiden“, wie die Mönchshof Bierspezialität künftig schmeckt. Neben dem außergewöhnlichen Geschmack sorgt vor allem eine originelle Gastronomieausstattung für ein besonderes Bier-Erlebnis. Der Gast genießt seine echte Kellerbier-Halbe im salzglasierten, nostalgischen Mönchshof Kellerbier-Krug. Auf Wunsch serviert Mönchshof Kellerbier in urigen 2-Liter-Humpen zum Selbsteinschenken für die gesellige Tischrunde, die ihre Striche auf einem gemeinsamen Kellerbier-Filz eintragen kann. Auch zuhause kommen Bierkenner in den Genuss von naturtrübem Mönchshof Kellerbier. Im gut sortierten Getränke- sowie im Lebensmitteleinzelhandel ist die neue Sorte in der beliebten Bügelverschlussflasche in der Spezialitätenecke zu finden, leicht zu erkennen am Etikett mit den urigen Holzfässern. Burnished gold, almost copper hue. Slightly Hazy amber color with a bubbly, white 1-inch head that settles to a thin film over the top. Lots of carbonation is present, and there is nice lacing on the glass. The color on this beer is great. Aroma is very bready and grainy with a good amount of herbal and spicy noble hops. A bit of a toasty quality and something almost like a slight fruitiness. To me this is the perfect lager. The malty grain flavor is exactly what I think of when I think of German lager. There is a hint of mature sweetness here. It is not sweet like candy or fruit but like the sweetness that you can taste from a carrot or ear of corn only after having abstained from artificial sugars for a week. I can not see any way that you could make this taste better. This is one hell of a German Keller (Basement) brew. It is tasty enough to remain interesting throughout the night, but it is light and simple enough to avoid commanding your attention or burning out your tastebuds. Seriously, seriously drinkable!

Deep slightly hazy full gold. Beige head dissipates to a thin cap that leaves lovely lace. Rich, pure lovely malty goodness on the nose. There is a warmth to the malt that I’ve rarely encountered. Absolutely captivating. Medium full in the mouth. Again, intense, pure malt flavors dominate. There’s some mineral supporting, and some bitterness keeping it in check, but this is all about the malt. Such a gorgeous balancing act. Very low carbonation gives a velvety impression as the malt seeps into every corner of your mouth. I could drink this beer forever.

Pours a mostly clear very dark gold toward amber with a decent sized, fluffy, tight bubbled khaki cream head that hangs out and leaves some intricate webby foamy lace. Some sediment dispatch leads to a glowing cloudy redness. Nose involves rich malt notes of toffee, raisin and cookies, some leafy herbal hops, a delicate floral note, and some intriguing dusty cellar notes. Quite sweet, a fair bitterness. Medium bodied, creamy, soft, with a lingering herbal bitterness. This is exactly what I want right now.

rampmaster (642) - Alden, New York, USA - MAR 18, 2011
Presentation: It was poured from a brown 1pt .9oz swing top bottle into a tall mug. The label has no other info. Appearance: It has deep amber to copper colored body with a heavy haze and visible carbonation. A two finger, creamy light beige head sits on top and hangs on well. On the way down the glass it makes lots of cool sticky lace patterns. Smell: The nose has notes of bready malt and bready yeast with leafy hop notes and a light mineral edge. Taste/Palate: There is a clean lager character running up the middle of the tongue with mellow bready malt and yeast notes coming in from the sides. A flash of leafy/herbal hop flavor and bitterness finishes it off with just the slightest hint of something mineral like. On the palate it has a solid medium feel with smooth mellow carbonation. Notes: Overall this is a very enjoyable beer.

pittsburghkid (8) - VALPARAISO, Indiana, USA - DEC 27, 2009 does not count
Had a case of this. Very good for the style. Low marks must have been a bad bottle. Tastes very similar to fresh keller beer in germany. Not overpowering and not bland either. Shared several bottles and none skunky or rotten. Got it direct from Germany so I am sure that helped. nice appearance with a dark golden color, slighly hazy, poured with minimal head.

Without doubt a very (very) drinkable beer; we always have this at home. I find it goes very well with cheese and red meats, although this might be just my personal opinion.
