Kellerbier means cellar beer in German and refers to an all-natural beer straight out of the aging tank, and normally carried up from the cellar in a pitcher. Our straw-colored, medium bodied and hoppy lager is not filtered and has not had anything added for clarity. It is naturally carbonated and slightly hazy with yeast, which helps to keep it fresh. Please store it in a cool place, perhaps in your cellar!

On tap at the Manaynk Brew Pub. On the menu as ’Bill’s Elixir’. Poured a medium and lightly hazy yellow color with a small sized white head. Aromas and tastes of mainly grass with a light citrus aspect. Thinner body.

Rastacouere (6174) - Montreal, Quebec, CANADA - OCT 18, 2005
Diminishing white head leaves a mostly clear golden hue all alone. Very interesting toasted pils malt aroma with soft complementing breadiness. The saaz hops procure a reasonable grassiness and a really crisp, fitting floweriness. Faint diacetyl becomes noticeable in mouth, but the dryness of the attenuated palate and medium body welcome it with open hands. Crisp and bitter finish, peppery and fresh.

Again not a very good beer from Manayunk, I tried to avoid their booth at the Stoudt’s MicroFest but for some reason I went over anyway, clear golden color, minimal head with little lacing, body was too thin, too bready, not enough hop character

egajdzis (6105) - Pennsburg, Pennsylvania, USA - JUN 1, 2004
Poured a clear gold color with a small white head, but nice lacing. Toasty, bready, light malt aroma. Light malts, some citrus, and a nutty (almond) taste. An OK keller, though I thought it was missing alot of somethings to make it good.

Bottled. Good example for the style. Had a little fruit flavor. Good drinkable brew.

Braudog (6342) - Yorktown, Virginia, USA - APR 8, 2003
UPDATED: JUL 18, 2007 This beer is as yellow as they come and is slightly cloudy. The scent is somehow acidic but not at all unpleasant. It has an excellent balanced fruity, crisp, malty and drinkable character. Outstanding.
