3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Amber with a glow and a little haze. Ok, slightly fruity w a full, ale-like body and a little bit of fruitiness.

4.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 18/20
Tap at The Local Taphouse, Sydney.
Very refreshing - Fruity (with a capital F) - light on the tongue - impressed. I’m not a Euro ale kinda bloke but this is very enticing (to me). If this beer was a German girl in a pub, I’d siddle over and start a conversation (friendly not a pick-up).

3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Pours an orange colour with a white head. Aroma is malt, grain and some some bready notes. Taste is light to medium sweet leading to a dry finish. Pretty good I thought.

UPDATED: AUG 29, 2013 Fantastic to see a kellerbier, and also to see an Australian micro that doesn’t use Australian malt.... or Galaxy hops!.... This seems like it was a good potential beer, but had issues with yeast - shocking aroma of (what I think is) acetaldehyde spoils the whole thing. Once that dissipated a bit there was some quality bready, oily, maltiness, spicy and minty hops and rye in the finish. Fairly sticky and sweet at first but dry in the finish. Lovely lacing on a hazy copper beer. Clean up the aroma and this could be a great beer. [2.3] rer8: been meaning to give this another go for a while. well the aroma is much better now - malty, faint german hops, bit of dms. authentically bavarian tasting - malty and caramelly upfront but finishing very dry, not too bitter but certainly balanced enough, with pleasantly herbal hops - dryhopped? touch of dms/diacetyl but not too much - adds to the rustic kellerbierness of it. i’ll be getting some more of this stuff - flavoursome beer.
