3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Unfiltered lager vom Lagertank "zwickelt"
.5L glass served on tap at Brauerei Mittenwald (from 2012 notes).
Clear golden yellow with ample fine carbonation and a large white head that has excellent retention and very good glass coating.
The aroma is a simple but quite appetizing toasted malt with light yeast; very bready. These are also primary characteristics of the taste, but a balancing bitterness and some herbal and spice notes reveal a substantial hop contribution.
M: smooth but also lively and crisp, with somewhat aggressive carbonation. Dry finish.
O: even with somewhat limited experience, I am confident this is a stellar example of the style. Excellent with or without food.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
(draught at the brewery tap) Hazy, pale golden colour with a mid-sized foamy white head. Moderately sweet and yeasty malty aroma with fresh herbal and slightly grassy hops. Bitter-sweet flavour, light to medium body, crispy on the tongue. Slightly yeasty and subtle fruity palate; good balance between the malty body and a present hops character; quite dry and mildly hoppy finish. 04.VIII.09

Vom Fass at Postkeller Mittenwald 25 Jun 07. Golden colored. Hazy. A good-looking "blume" - reduced to a small head in a couple of minutes. A bit carbonated. Sweet malty and fruity impression throughout. One of the best Kellerbiers during our holiday i Bayern.
