2.6 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
50cl fliptop, Bayrische Bierprobe variety 6pack, bb07/2015. Tired caramels nearly punch through the soggy cardboard of a dirtfloor broth. A dull, far cry from Franconian splendour and spice.

2.6 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 11/20
Bottle. Clear orange amber with a small bubbly head. Aroma of hay, bread and yeast. Sweet malty flavors, soapy notes, light herbal bitterness. Light-medium-bodied, light carbonation. Drinkable, but not very exciting.

2.3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
"Meh. One I’ve passed on probably a hundred times but decided to give it a shot. Decent spicy yeast character and a touch of hops, but also some biscuit malt (which doesn’t go well here) and dare I say a touch of cardboard. Add the slight over-carbonation and there’s just not a whole lot to get excited about here."

2.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Bottle: Pours iced coffee color, with a non-persistent head. Malt-forward aroma, the palate is kind of dead: slightly carbonated tea flavor. Overall, I haven’t tried other brands in this category, but if they taste the same, I am not into the Kellerbier style.
