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

Bottle ( Swing Top) Bought on our Rhine holiday in August 2012. Yellow and slightly cloudy.Some sweetness and a medium body. Pleasant if uninspiring.

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

MichaelAwesome (5135) - Wanne-Eickel, North Rhine-Westphalia, GERMANY - AUG 8, 2012
0,5 l swing top bottle. Unspectacular kellerbier with a kind of bitterness I don’t like. Nice in colour but no special aromas. Below average.

Cloudy gold, fluffy white head, spicy hop aroma, crisp bitter and vanilla palate with wheat notes, pepper and caraway in the dry bitter finish.

33cL bottle. Same overall rating as the Dunkel, seemed more "natural" though, so it scored higher. Taste was typical for the style, not too crisp. Aroma was really really good, palate was cleaner than the dunkel as well. Good beer!

From BA (Oct 2007). This half litre flip-topped bottle was obtained during a beer collecting trip in Germany (June 2007). Drank 7 days before its due date. Poured into a Hoegaarden Grand Cru glass (twice). Slightly hazy look, which gives the beer a dull golden hue to it. The second pour was obviously a little more hazy. The clean white head falls away very swiftly, it started three inches high and before I had lifted the glass it fell to less than half an inch. Aroma is good for a kellerbier, slight sourness, which flows into the taste and some wheat, even though it has none in it. A little dry and weak tasting, but still some flavour of yeast and hops combine to give the beer a different taste to this breweries normal pilsner beer. The dry sourness does stay in the mouth, but the overall feel is only average, the brewer hasn’t pushed any boats out. This is a run of the mill kellerbier, I was hoping for more from an old Pilsner brewery I used to support when living in Germany.
