UPDATED: DEC 4, 2013 draft at Brauerei Roppelt in Stiebarlimbach, as Roppelt Lagerbier. hazed pale gold body with a creamy and fine white head. cheesy and musty and spicy German hop nose reminds me of Ganstallar Zwicklpils, though much less yeasty. astoundingly soft velvet texture with fine creamy carbonation. musty, grassy, cheesy, lightly spicy hops character with a full dose of fruit nectar and jelly. very hop-focused experience, which is somewhat un-Bavarian. lemon and lime oils, perfume / potpourri, grasses / herbs all dance with energy. snappy crisp to the back-end of an otherwise perfectly soft malt body. juicy, bitter, fresh and endlessly drinkable.

Again in November 2013, it was limp, watery, fruity, apple-y / green. Probably 3.2 level stuff. I’ll keep the 4.4 high water mark but say it varies like a lot of Franconian beer, more than you would think initially.

Klares goldenes Bier mit einer ordentlichen weißen Schaumkrone, hohe Karbonisation. Geruch angenehm hopfig, malzig, leicht floral, würzig. Geschmack sehr malzig, dezent hopfig, getreidig, würzig, lecker!

Pours a clear yellow golden colour . Dry earthy and grainy malty aroma. The flavour is grassy hops, earthy dryness, grainy malt and some citrus notes.

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... Grandissima beva!

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.

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.

Christian (11391) - Odense, DENMARK - JUL 30, 2013
(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

On tap at the Keller, cloudy orange brown with a thin head and a lightly peppery, malty and orange juice nose, very faintly tart and nutty, bready, lightly bitter and refreshing.

harrisoni (14353) - Ashford, Kent, ENGLAND - MAY 25, 2013
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.
