Bottle from Beers of Europe. My first Kellerbier. Hazy amber colour with a thin off-white head. Aroma is fruity, hoppy and with some background malts. Taste is hoppy, malty, fruity and some caramel. Dryish with a long bitter finish. Low carbonation, smooth and very drinkable. Great creamy mouthfeel. This is impressive; delicious.

3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
My first Kellerbier. Cheers, (glass is raised) to many more.
The nose consists of herbal, spicy and fruity hops with a little bit of bready malt in there as well. Hidden is a medicinal cherry sweetness. It smells nice.
I read a lot about the style before sampling this beer. Kellerbiers are unfiltered lagers, hoppy, have low carbonation and are similar to a bigger version of a helles lager. This beer definately fits into the deScription.
Raw and earthy. Pretty delicious. Low carbonation. The malt is grainy and has some caramel notes. The hops are fresh, versatile and alive and provide fruity and herbal notes. Hints of woodiness. Low bitterness.

3.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Pours a murky rust with a large white head that fades slowly. Aroma of yeast, tea, and grassy hops. Flavor of tea, grassy and spicy hops, a little sweet malt. This beer is refreshing. Somewhat mild but with enough flavor to be enjoyable and interesting.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
This pours a nice copper color but the minimal white head is gone in a flash.
Malty aroma with a pleasant hop accompanyment.
The flavor is malty with a bit of hop bitterness that doesn’t overpower the sweet malt profile. A tad thin and undercarbonated, but not bad.

3.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottled: Hazy coppery hue with short head and some lace. The aroma has notes of buttery and caramelized malst, aromatic and grassy hops, ripened apples and pears, and earthy and woody yeast esters. The taste starts surprisely hoppy and fruity, a bit of a bite. Undertones of mild malts and a hebral nature follows. The feel starts great with a sharp edge but then gets a bit bready and loses focus. Quaffable enough but doesn’t produce any notable characteristics.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle pours a bit of a prune juice color with a slight haze and a small off-white head. The aroma is bready and floral. The flavor is hoppy, bread like, sweet, caramel, and malty. The palate is fairly rich and cleansing; a bit dusty. Overall, this is a good beer and a first in the style for me. Not bad.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Caramel colored hazy body, immediately fading off-white head despite generous carbonation. Rather sweet aroma of toasted bread, caramel. Very hoppy (orangey, herbal). Fairly low carbonated medium body. A bit grainy on the palate. Very long finish, dry and mineral. Bitterness has quite a sharp acid bite, very refreshing. A bit disappointing initially, but it manages to grow on you and was a real bargain at 2$ a 0.5L. Glad to have tried this style at once.

A hazy orange beer with a small disappearing head. The aroma is of caramel and grain, and so is the flavor before it end on a dry notes. Thanks to Rasmus for this one.
