4.3 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
UPDATED: MAY 23, 2013 Draft at the Keller (on two occasions).
Head is mostly diminishing.
Body is medium to dark yellow.
Aroma is moderately malty (toasted grain/bread, cookie), moderately hoppy (herbs, flowers), with notes of honey, lime zest, pineapple, spearmint.
Flavor is moderately sweet, lightly acidic, lightly to moderately bitter.
Finish is lightly sweet, lightly acidic, moderately to heavily bitter.
Medium body, velvety texture, lively carbonation.
Remarkably tasty, and very pilsner-ish...quite herbal/spicy-hoppy with very assertive (but very clean) bitterness. Impossible to stop drinking due to the superb balance and wonderfully fruity-honeyish aroma. I think I actually prefer this to the Witzgall, but both are excellent. Also tried from bottle (purchased at the keller), and while a little less explosive in the nose, it’s still excellent...which is a relief considering how much inconsistency I’ve been finding from sample to sample in many other brewers.

In botte al whynot ad alassio... Una delle mie birre preferite della franconia.
Il velluto iniziale che ti lascia in bocca da’ spazio a un finale secco e amaro...

Gravity pour at the keller. Tea leaves, hay and grassy hops. Taste is rich cereal, leafy hoppy bitterness. Bready malts softened this brew. Palate is a little more rich but very smooth. Very good, in my top three.

4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
My Bottom Line:
Quaint herbal and grassy hops wade in this Kellerbier’s soft cereals, creating a most süffig pint.
Further Personal Perceptions:
-A veil of foam covers the apparently blond brew.
-Bitterness is rather light.
-Hops could be better defined for this to be a top brew in the area (in my tastes).
-This is balanced and as easy drinking as can be.
-This and the Lieberth brew close by obviously share the same water source. Super soft stuff.
On tap at their keller.

Vom fass at the keller. Really grassy, tea leaf dominated aroma, light but present keller funk, wet hay, fresh bread dough. Taste is dry, grainy and grassy, tea-like grassy hop bitterness, so tasty. Palate is light and refreshing, my favorite kellerbier.

(At the Keller, in a Krug) Lasting white head. Malty and herbal aroma with grassy notes, and a hint of fruit. Sweetish malty flavour. Well hopped and a good, refreshing finish

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
On tap at Roppelts Keller, Stiebarlimach. Malt and hop on aroma, perfectly full and drinkable in mouth, slight but building hop sting on finish. REally good, best beer of day so far.
