COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Dieses naturtrübe, ungespundete Kellerbier ist eine traditionelle, fränkische Spezialität. Seinen unverwechselbaren Charakter erhält es durch feine Hefe und die besonders lange Lagerung in den Kellern der Brauerei. Gut gekühlt ist das St.Michaelsberg Kellerbier ein wahrer Hochgenuss.

Bottle from State Line. Turbid deep gold pour with 1-finger off-white head. Nose is grainy pale malt, some hopcitrus. Tastes pale malty, with some honey and hopcitrus flavors. More prominent Saazy hoppy notes emerge as it warms.

nuplastikk (4399) - Madison, Wisconsin, USA - FEB 23, 2008
500ml bottle. Golden-amber color. Noteworthy lack of carbonation hiss upon opening the bottle. The beer poured with a hyper-minimal head as well. The taste is mildly and enjoyably malty sweet, with a very faint hop presence somewhere way in the back. All around a pretty good beer, but I’m assuming something is not going right on the bottling line.

ryan (3186) - Beltsville, Maryland, USA - FEB 20, 2008
Bottle from Chevy Chase Liquors. Hazy amber body that shows little carbonation when poured resulting in a tiny white head. Lightly sweet nose with apple juice, very light herbal/grassy hops and a touch of corn starch. The flavor is lightly sweet and lightly bitter with light lemon, some grassy hops, honey, hay and dough. Medium body is soft with very light carbonation. Not what I picture when I think of Kellerbier. I hope this was just an old bottle (though other ratings are similar). I’m cutting it a bit of slack on the rating just to be safe.

Radek Kliber (6470) - Toronto (Can) Krotoszyn (Pol), POLAND - FEB 20, 2008
Bottle 500 ml
Appearance: Light amber weak rocky top. Yeast sediment found at bottom .
Nose :Hoppy , citric with fresh hay like aromas. Refreshing farm like harvest feel, light spiciness at finish.7-
Flavor/Palate : Quiet soft, quality malt sitting up front/ Gently, satisfying character. Silky with distinctive soft hop bittering. Yummy traditional lager. Subtle superb qualities sneak upon you. One of those brews that grown on you as you drink. At the end you will be in love with it.

3fourths (8032) - Boulder, Colorado, USA - FEB 16, 2008
500ml bottle. Pours hazy light honey amber with close to no head. Nose of old red apples, slightly moldly and dank, with some toasted corn, toasted barley, and a light sweet honeycrisp apple note. Texture is bright, vivid, juice-like, but fresher than it smells, with more of a grassy, dry hop presence, amplified in the finish. Dry and pasty aftertaste reminds me of some English bitters. I think my bottle is a little old, but it’s still quite good.

RblWthACoz (964) - Brooklyn, New York, USA - FEB 12, 2008
Pours a clear copper with basically no head. Mild, clean nose. Very smooth flavor profile that carries a back tone that is sweet in nature that eventually kicks it up a bit and blows up in the mouth. Nice leaft edge. Nothing crazy, but smooth. Feel is smooth with a consistent carbonation and the liquid is good as well. Very easy to drink. Could go on this all night with no problem.

kmweaver (3207) - Petaluma, California, USA - FEB 8, 2008
Draft, Rustico. Another surprise beer on tap at this place in Alexandria, VA. Pours a hazy, orange-amber color; khaki head that soon disappears. Plenty of juicy oranges and minerals in the aroma; dripping tree fruit. Slightly medicinal fruit character in the mouth; medium mouthfeel; chewy oranges, tons of minerals and bready malts; very drinkable; nice finish: dry, showing minerals and citrus. Pleasant beer.

argo0 (11535) - Washington DC, USA - FEB 4, 2008
(50cl bottle) The tiniest off-white head assembles on the rim, to top a hardly hazed amber body. Aroma is medium sweet, bread, caramel, some toast, light floral. Taste is medium sweet, herbal/grapefruit, some floral, caramel/bread/honey. There;s a dry resinous feel to the light-medium body, minimal carbonation.

notalush (4856) - Denver, Colorado, USA - JAN 30, 2008
Bottle - headless, almost completely still pour - golden beer with fine suspended particles - it sure don’t look like much - fruity, honey-sweet aroma, with loads of dried herbs, flowers, some european hop spiciness - light and easy to quaff - nice balance of biscuity malt, dry, spicy hops, light honey and floral notes - gets some ambiguous fruitiness near the end, and the hops almost become peppery - an interesting beer.
