3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Transfer from BA review on 3-21-12 -
Served in 10 oz chalice glass
Appearance – Served a hazy yellow color with a large white head that faded fast. Upon fading a little lacing was left on the glass.
Smell – The smell is more citrus hop with a nice bit of wheaty bready aroma mixed with a pepper spicy aroma and an ever so lighter tropical fruit aroma.
Taste – The taste is a bit of sweeter wheat malt up front. The hop flavor really then starts to come into play. Very lemony citrus in nature with a bit of pine. There is a nice peppery flavor that comes more toward the end of the taste. The mix of the peppery lemon and wheat go on to take the brew to its taste finish and leave a rather crisp flavor on the tongue as an aftertaste.
Mouthfeel – The mouthfeel is on the medium to lighter side with a good level of carbonation. It is rather good for the style, but nothing of extraordinary greatness.
Overall – This was a refreshing brew that was very easy to drink. Good for a nice sunny warm day while sitting and lounging around outside.

Good example of a pilsner, possibly a little more on the bitter/hoppy side than expected.

I haven’t rated this yet?! Anyway, I rectified that with a new pint at The Brass Tap - U Square. Pours a completely clear, brighter gold with a small white head. Very clean - pale and pils malts, straw, grass, maybe a hint of lemon zest. Light-bodied, with moderate carbonation and a clean, refreshing mouthfeel. Great pils. This one didn’t quite hit the spot like it has in the past, but I’ll re-rate when I get another because I wonder how fresh it was.

Drier and crisper than a Bohemian Pilsener with a bitterness that tends to linger more in the aftertaste due to higher attenuation and higher-sulfate water. Lighter in body and color, and with higher carbonation than a Bohemian Pilsener. Modern examples of German Pilsners tend to become paler in color, drier in finish, and more bitter as you move from South to North in Germany.

My Bottom Line:
A herbal hop zing pierces this Kellerbier’s wet hay, as whispers of citrus fruit and honey create even more merriment.
Further Personal Perceptions:
-A creamy sheet of foam covers the hazy straw, lacing beautifully.
-If I have to find something to improve, I could say the body could be drier.
-The nose is surprisingly awash in malt aromas.
-This is not as slender and elegant as many German Pilsener, which is why I dubbed it a Kellerbier. Feels more rural in its intensity and flavor display.
On tap at Armsby Abbey.
