3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Half-liter bottle from the brewery. Virtually no carbonation in an amber-colored beer poured into a Steinkrug. No bubbles. Rather aromatic: biscuit, herbs, dark honey. Tangy, dusty bitter, with mild caramel streak and then rolling through a lasting bitter aftertaste. Not sure why the bottle is flat, but it tastes more interesting than most bottled Kellerbiers. Still not as lively and tasty as the stuff from the Anstich at the mouth of the cellar, at the Schmausenkeller. Special place with a massive playground. Bring the tots.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
From gravity barrel at Schmausenkeller in Reundorf. Moderately hazy golden yellow with a short but fine white head and slowly cascading carbonation. Aroma is moderately yeasty / doughy, sulfuric and hoppy in the nose with notes of flowers and apricot and lemon. Quiet malt is toasty and cracker-y with faint sugar cookie notes. Medium body and enjoyably rich, light to moderately sweet, sticky and lasting mouth feel with moderate to strong finishing bitterness for its size. Fresh and lively, just a tad doughy and soapy in the same way as the Lieberth / Rittmayer Haus Kellerbier, but remains lip-smacking and succulent and the fruity-floral hop expression is nice.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle looks a bit old but okay. Beer in the glass zippy, nice head. Fruity-sweet aroma. Starts intense hoppy, spicy, grasy, strange notes of sorrel and some herbs. Finish more balanced. Still those interesting sorrel notes. I like it!

2.4 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
500ml bottle. Hazy orangey golden colour with gigantic, foamy, faily lasting, moderately lacing, white head. Muggy, grainy, aroma creates a cowshed atmosphere with adjacent long drop. Taste is dry, grainy, spicy strawy with a cautious tart touch, salty. Somehow extreme, unintelligible, quite strange.

1.6 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 5/20
Hellorange, trüb mit reichlich Schaum. Ein modrig-säuerliches Aroma, fies! Die Modrigkeit kommt auch im Geschmack vor, wenn auch die Säuerlichkeit abgemildert. Zwar gibt’s auch etwas Hefe und Malz zu erschmecken, aber das alles unter dieser modrigen-säuerlichen Decke. Ekelhaft!

0.9 AROMA 1/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 1/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 2/20
Head is initially small, frothy, white, mostly diminishing.
Body is hazy medium to dark yellow.
Aroma is a strong note of butter/diacetyl, light note of lemon juice.
Flavor is lightly to moderately sweet, moderately acidic, lightly bitter.
Finish is lightly sweet, moderately acidic, lightly to moderately bitter, very unclean.
Medium body, watery texture, lively carbonation.
Whooooooaaaaaaa. FASTEN YOUR SEATBELT FOR THE DIACETYL EXPRESS!!! Holy crap. This is THE most diacetyl-ridden beer I have ever had in my entire life. The aroma is NOTHING but butter...no hops, no toasty malt, nothing. Absolutely insane. Just like a big glass of artificial movie theater "butter" (sans popcorn). Sour and gag-inducingly dirty in the mouth. Un-freaking-believable. How the hell was this considered ok to bottle and sell???
