3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
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.......

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.

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.

bottled. dark browny amber copper. anzac biscuit aroma, pretty weird kellerbier, some rotten fruit sourness and very little of the fresh, lightly tropical, hop taste i would associate with kellerbiers

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.

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.

Like "theshocker" we also didnt have the "Alt" written on the label. Willblake brought this new brewer to Jimmacks place. Pretty decent stuff, but not great overall. This one pours a relatively clear deep gold with a thin lasting head. Aroma starts off a bit bland when cold, but as it warms, some light fruity esters come out and a nice floral herbal hop character comes through backed up by warm bready pils malt. Light caramel sweetness in the flavor with a mild hop bitterness in the end- not much else going on, except it tasted a bit fresher with more body then the harpoon kellerbier. ps- Jon rewrote my notes to give this beer a 4.5 and said "it rocks:" So I guess he either really liked it, or just wanted to mess with me.
