Apparently not retired. On gravity cask at Churchkey on 10.11.2010.
Pours a light golden color with a nice, thick white head and never ending lacing. Nose brought some nice pale malt along with some fresh, herbal hops. A bit of grass. Taste brought things together quite well, with the hop bitterness making itself more available than in the others I had at the event. Bready character was really nice, though it was a bit darker than some of the others. Quite tasty. Feel was light and refreshing. Very nice drinkability and perhaps the second-best keller that I’ve had.

Bottle. Sour milk, barnyard malt aroma. Hazy yellow-brown color with large head and moderate effervescence. Barnyard, hay malt flavor with light grassy hops finish. Excellent - a great bottled Kellerbier.Tim Webb (470) - Bristol, Gloucestershire, ENGLAND - MAY 1, 2017

Bottle. Malty aroma with a hint of chocolate. Dark tan in color. Medium malt flavor with forward hops - a bit on the light side. Overall an enjoyable beer
On draught at Eckerts / Hotel Nepomuk in Bamberg. Served at 12 C. Love at first bite. Maybe it was the temperature that allowed so many flavours to be unlocked at once. I had it bottled at JoeinDalhem’s home a couple of days earlier at fridge temperature and it did very little for me though it got better with the passage of (warming) time. In full flood like today this is a great beer for its weight. omhper (25750) - Tyresö, SWEDEN - SEP 23, 2008
UPDATED: DEC 18, 2009 Bottled. Clear bronze colour, near no head. Hay-like nose. Doughy and bready with soft but firm and chewy mouthfeel. Mild floral hops, growing late hay-like bitterness. Wonderfully well balanced. The malt character is just lovely - so much depth!

Draught at Café Abseits, Bamberg, Bavaria. Bronze colour, small creamy head. Dusty aroma. Dryish with some boiled vegetables and dense malt profile. Well light if flavour, and not as firm as I’d like it to be. Some late bitterness.
.5 liter bottle at spuyten. Pours a slightly hazed light copper with a nice lasting off whtie head. Aroma is full of nice fresh toasty malts, bready, wtih a good herball and almost slightly vegetal hops- a bit grassy. Sweet malt flavor, carapils, lgith vienna toast, fresh bread and malts and douhgy. Crisp clean finish. Nice.
