Die naturbelassene Bierspezialität. Wie einst von unseren Vätern gebraut.
Brauart/Biergattung: Untergäriges, naturtrübes Vollbier
Eine eigenständige, fränkische Kellerbiervariante, die genussreiche Bereicherung für den Bierfreund. Schaumgekrönt, natürliche Hefetrübung, messingfarben mit Orangetönen – ein Aussehen, das das Herz eines jeden Bierkenners höher schlagen lässt. Die Nase nimmt leicht süßliche Honignoten und feine Fruchtnoten wahr. Schneidig, dezent bierhefig und recht süffig im Geschmacksprofil. Eine milde Herbe begleitet den Ausklang.
Der authentisch, fränkische Kellerbiergenuss – schmeckt nicht nur auf dem Bierkeller.

Chopper925 (264) - Gross Gerau, GERMANY - NOV 6, 2014
Bottle. Cloudy amber yellow color, with a medium white head. Aroma is malty, bready. Taste is rather sweet, slightly bitter, too sweet for my taste. Medium texture with a medium carbonation, mouthfeel is ok. Aftertaste is again sweet and bready, could be a bit more bitter.

BlackHaddock (4563) - Shropshire, ENGLAND - SEP 9, 2014
Shared 500ml flip-top bottle: BBD 3 Oct 14. Cheers mat, drank on 8 Sep 14 at the Shrewsbury bottle exchange. Poured a cloudy off-yellow with a white head. Yeast esters rule the slightly malty nose, lightly baked biscuit and bread notes under the yeastiness. The taste is similar with the yeast again taking centre stage. A mild hop bitterness towards the end, but this is almost semi-sweet in nature. OK rather than marvellous, but refreshing and easy to drink.

GoufCustom (972) - HONG KONG - SEP 3, 2014

500 ml flip-top bottle bought at Biorganic’s booth at HKCEC in Wan Chai during HKTDC Food Expo 2014.

Cloudy hazy dull amber honey colour with thick layer of yeast sediments; Oen and a quarter finger head and crumpety off-white foam which lasts for 90 seconds; Very good sticky lacing and quite fizzy carbonation; Quite fragrant aroma of malt, with barley, light honey, molasses, light bread, yeast and strong strawy grass; Mid to light sweet taste of malt, with light barley grains, molasses notes, light wood, light spices, bread, strong yeast, lemon, bitter hops and strawy grass; Light body, thin but slick palate; Mouth feel is full-on Keller with pretty dull malt taste in thin slick body, slightly grainy, sweetness is fairly low with molasses only in notes. Very strong but rotten yeast overwhelm the light bread and pretty potent lemony hops with slight cardboard. Oh well… Hoppiness is strong strawy grass in nose, lemon and straw in taste. Good light and solid bitterness balance the sweetness quite well for lasting mid to light astringent and malty finish; Quite dry after taste. Very yeasty and bitter-sweet to mouth.

Comments: There’s lots of yeast in this one, which should have been true to the style but unfortunately it tastes really off-putting and almost ruin the overall pictures. Luckily its maltyness stands tall, strawy but solid hops to match and low sweet taste. It would have been a real good Keller, but until then, it barely passes the mark.
