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.

a strange brew that has no head and very little carbonation; probably unlucky and got an odd one. cloudy copper hue with fruity aroma of herb and malt, it has caramel flavor and is light bodied.

500ml. Orange-copper with a one finger head that tries to last. Aroma is spicy corn and Juicy Fruit gum. Flavor is spicy caramel, smoky-grilled corn and then some bittering herbs and molasses on the end. Pretty nicely balanced, but the flavors are just not the greatest match to my tastebuds. Light-medium body is fairly smooth, with a dry finish.

puzzl (3259) - New York, New York, USA - JAN 24, 2008
Tap at Blind Tiger. Cloudy yellow pour definitely has some filtering going on, though certainly not too fine. Wheat hull flavor, touches of mint sprigs, sage. Aroma is herbal, euro hops. Finish is very clean. Tasty.

Tap at Blind Tiger. Pours amber with no head at all. Has a vaguely fruity and bready aroma. Can’t really put my finger on it though. The taste is similarly confusing to my palate, though not in a bad way. Some earthy hops and breadiness start, then that fruity taste I can’t identify comes in. Average palate with a clean finish. I must say I liked this quite a bit, though my rating may not entirely reflect that.

Draft at the Blind Tiger. Not very carbonated, but smooth and drinkable. Hard time describing it, breadiness maybe?

Oakes (15805) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - JAN 14, 2008
Bright orangey-amber colour. Beautifully toasty nose with herbal accents. Light hop - earth note. Very fresh grain character. Probably too much carbo and not enough bitterness for my kellerbier liking but a good brew.

EithCubes (5633) - New Jersey, USA - JAN 12, 2008
Bottle. Wonderful grassy hops aroma, as dusty as anything I’ve smelled, with a strong malt base and a healthy dose of citrus. Pours a deep golden bordering on orange, with a quickly-spent white head. Taste is mainly malty, a touch of grain and more citrus, dries out quickly and finishes with a big blast of bread. A bit musty and cellary, has that great Kellerbier tang I look for. Lighter side of medium-bodied, smooth and relaxing, with just enough spritz to be refreshing. Straightforward but well-made and drinkable in huge quantity. Great stuff.

beerking99 (199) - Virginia, USA - JAN 12, 2008
Pours a bright orange-amber color, with significant haze and almost no head. Haze is appropriate for a keller bier, as is the very low carbonation. Aroma is bready, slightly yeasty, with some significant hops character backing it all up. Yeasty/breadiness is spot-on for kellerbier style. Am I in Franconia? Flavor is more spot-on for a kellerbier too, with some significant malty sweetness (munich malt?), breadiness and a touch of of yeasty character. Hops are apparent throughout, and even dominate in some areas, but never take over. Body is on the low side of medium, but definitely medium. Finish is sweet malt with a good balance of hops as well. This is a great session beer, in the Franconian style. It has some of the yeasty characters and very low carbonation expected from a unfiltered kellerbeir lager like you will find in any village in Franconia, Germany. This is even a bottle conditioned beer.
