yellow, with a moderate quickly dissipitating head. Some spiciness but a bit metallic-macro-like lager. Really nothing special. Not very drinkable, maybe as it was not very fresh. Light, a touch of toastiness, all didn’t work too well for me.

Swing-top bottle: Copper coloured, thin and a bit lacing white foamy layer; sweetish malty nose with a touch of caramel and dried fruit; initial slight sweet maltiness; light bitter-sweet flavour; longer lasting finish: combination of dry bitter tones with maltiness. Not great, but goes down well.......

Bottle from Super Saver. Dark straw pour with 1-finger off-white head. Aroma of caramel malt, fruit, hopcitrus. Very maibocky aroma and flavor, with the fruit and hopcitrus taste, and caramel malt notes. This one gets a bit tart as it warms up.

2 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 7/20
Body is medium amber.
Aroma is lightly malty (toasted bread), with a strong note of DMS.
Flavor is lightly to moderately sweet, lightly bitter.
Finish is lightly sweet, lightly to moderately bitter, unclean.
Medium body, watery texture, lively carbonation.
Whew, not much in the nose but a chemically vegetable brine stink. Off aftertaste as well. I certainly hope this was a bad bottle/batch, rather than being representative. The Weissbier was not very good either, however.

2.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Bottled: A clean rich golden hue topped by a fizzy head that left good lacing upon the glassware. The aroma has notes of herbal and grassy hops, bready and sweet syrupy malts and a hint of earthy yeast esters. The taste starts with most malt sweetness with support a quick dash of mild fruit with just a drop of hop bitterness. Rather straight forward and lacks much depth but is a quaffable bier and an easy way to start the days drinking activities.

Savannah, Ga. - Habersham Beverage Warehouse - 500 ml flip top bottle. Dark copper pour, light white head. Fresh lake water aroma, hints of caramel. Nutty, somewhat sweet flavor with some vegetable notes, caramel and a back end of mint. Stays strong to the finish - does not peter out. Mouthfeel is strudy and somewhat thick. Very drinkable and belly filling.

Being only my second kellerbier, i had no idea what to expect and found this intresting. Aroma is fruity, fresh and grassy hops also. Taste is similar very very drinkable. Assuming this is unfiltered as it was cloudy.

Pouring a deep dirty gold body with a short-lived creamy head, this has a bready, caramel malt aroma topped by an earthy, herbal hopping. I was impressed by the creaminess of this lager. The malts taste like lightly honeyed toast and the hops become more herbal, mildly bitter. A good sessionable brew.
