zenkis (677) - Ogre, LATVIA - MAR 4, 2013
Pours hazy yellow to orange. Aroma is hops dominant, herbal but in a pleasant not annoying way. Also light malt sweetness is notable. Taste is semisweet, a bit sour with medium hops bittery, but huge presence of herbal tones in flavour. So it is hopped well, but not in the IPA way, strange. Flavour is balancedin a stange, undisturbable way Medium body, dry mouthfeel and finish. So far best from this style (kellerbier) what I remember. Liked a lot.

light cloudy pale yellow color, medium sized white head, slight herbal and malt aroma. Flavor is malty and bitter in the finish. Nice one!

stevoj (2952) - Boise, Idaho, USA - DEC 7, 2012
Pours beautifully with a nice think fluffy jead, however aroma and taste leave a lot to be desired. Cloudiness of a keeler is thre, but aroma is faint and sweet/citrusy. Taste is also on the very light side, like a helles lager without the hop presence.

vipinvelp (2882) - Velp, NETHERLANDS - DEC 1, 2012
Cloudy light yellow with decent white head. Aroma is light citrus, almost like a weizen. Taste is not to outspoken, some light bitter citrus. Short fresh aftertaste. (Velp 201212)

cfrancis (2729) - Ottawa, Ontario, CANADA - SEP 19, 2012
Pours a hazy light gold with a small fizzy white ring. Aroma is faint, but grassy grains of malt. Taste is malt forward and grassy. Would like more from this.

#1026 "Zischke Original ist ein süffiges, untergäriges, ungefiltertes, naturtrübes Kellerbier Pilsener Brauart mit einem Stammwürzegehalt von 11,3%. Der Alkoholgehalt liegt bei 4,8%, die Farbe ist mit 7 EBC vornehm blaß. Seinen besonders spritzigen Charakter erhält es durch die Hefe und den hohen CO2-Gehalt." Soweit die Selbstbeschreibung. Wer nicht gleich zu Beginn belämmert aus der Wäsche schaun möchte, sollte dieses Bier NICHT aus dem Glas , sondern gleich aus der Pulle trinken. Das Aussehen ist einfach grottig schlecht; eigentlich mag ich eine naturbelassene Trübe, aber hier sieht es doch sehr hellgelb-milchig-trüb aus; wenn das Auge mittrinkt, bin ich gerade blind geworden! Die Beschreibung Kellerbier Pilsener Brauart ist schlichtweg gelogen, denn der Geschmack hat aber auch garnichts mit einem Pils gemein; citrusartige Fruchtigkeit, die durch die Hefe gerade noch rechtzeitig abgepuffert wird, das Malz verhindert schlimmeres. Spritzig? Hoher Co2-Gehalt? Definitiv nicht. Als Durstlöscher ordentlich, als Süffiger Charakter allenfalls ausreichend. Enttäuschend! Test vom 4.11.2006, Gebinde: Glasflasche Noten: 3,6,8,8,12,7 - 7,00

Very bitter for a Kellerbier, not quaffable enough. Aromas of hay, straw and buttermilk.
