Erzengel (7889) - Wuppertal, GERMANY - JAN 19, 2014
Auf meiner Flasche steht "original Hefetrüb" - aber das Bier ist absolut klar - nirgendwo auch nur die geringste Spur von Hefe in der Flasche zu finden... Die Farbe ist schön Dunkel-Bernstein - sieht gut aus (ich hab’ ihm trotzdem im Aussehen nur 3 Punkte gegeben, weil ich nirgendwo Hefe sehe....) Der Geruch erinnert an frisches bis moderiges Buchenholz. Der Geschmack ist schön rund und in Anklängen auch Holzig. Aber insgesamt doch sehr flach. Leicht süßlich malzig, aber viel zu wässrig....
Test vom 22.1.2008, Gebinde: Glasflasche Noten: 3,10,11,9,12,10 - 9,40

Bought at Biershop-Bayern: Sonnenbräu Keller-Bier. On the bottle’s back label it states, "classically brewed following the Reinheitsgebot of 1516 using aroma hops and Fränkishe (Franconian) brewing barley." This place is more of a Gasthof/Hotel/Restaurant, and their website gives zero info about their beers. There also seems to be plethora of Sonnenbräus in Germany, like in Mürsbach, in Lichtenberg, and Rebstein in Switzerland. I guess what makes it a Kellerbier is that it’s Hefetrüb, or yeast-cloudy. Anyway, it’s 5%, yellow-tinged light amber color, perfectly clear, so don’t understand the "cloudy" part on the label. my usual indication of the use of either Münchner/Melanoiden malts. The aroma is both little bread-malty & lightly hoppy, so they were right on the aroma hops, probably Tettnanger, Hersbrücker or another noble hop. The taste is both malty and lightly noble-hoppy, nothing terribly wowing, but really really easy to drink. There’s no one flavor that overpowers, and they blend together very well! Also the mouthfeel is neither too thick or too thin, maybe exactly in the Goldilocks zone needed to make a very süffige (pleasant to drink, drinkable), creamy beer. Damn, I’m usually not a Pils fan, but this is maltier than a Pils and less hoppy than, too. But then again, the warmer it gets, the bitterer the aftertaste. I can really dig this beer.

Dedollewaitor (15575) - Odense, DENMARK - JUL 7, 2012
Bottle @ Getrankenmarkt close to Ebermannstadt. Pours cloudy golden with a small egg white head. Nose is a bit odd. Eggs and meat. A bit like Bolognese. Mildly spiced/herbal. Flavor is mild yeast, grass and grain. Dry hoppy and yeasty finish.

oh6gdx (25452) - Vasa, FINLAND - NOV 10, 2011
Bottled (from landbierparadies.com). Deep golden colour, mediumsized white fluffy head, that leaves some lace. Aroma is malts, caramel, rather grassy and herbal hops as well. Flavour is grassy, hayish and floral hops with some slight sweet maltyness coming through as well. Pleasant, though a bit "one dimensional".

Miksu (5046) - Jyväskylä, FINLAND - JUL 5, 2011
0.5 l bottle, thanks Anssi and Teemu! Hazy yellow orange color. The aromas of toasted bread and nuts. Nutty and toasty notes are dominating the taste with honeyish and fruity notes. Medium to full body.

Koelschtrinker (17680) - Köln (Cologne), GERMANY - JUN 7, 2011
Der Geruch ist recht muffig aus der Flasche, aus dem Glas dann malzig süßlich. Es präsentiert sich zurückhaltend mit malzigem Unterton. Leicht wässrig und einigermaßen süffig ist dieses Bier nur Mittelmaß. Test vom 13.11.2005, Gebinde: Glasflasche Noten: 11,9,9,8,6,8 - 8,50
