From a Christmas selection. 330ml bottle. It's bottle conditioned with a thin layer of yeast at the bottom. Pours golden with a haze. Fruity easy drinking sweetish beer but with little hops. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

A lot of information on the labels, only the drinktemperature isnt here. Cloudy golden beer with short white head, smell is light sweet and grass, taste is light sweet, malty, flat carbonation, thin, light body, not special, boring (I have 0.33l bottle with best-before 29.08.17)

JorgeLee (2047) - Greater London, ENGLAND - APR 3, 2017
Bottle, advent calendar. Light golden yellow, white foam. Bready malts, slight spice hop, moderately fresh, low to medium bitterness. Not the cleanest, and yet slightly appetising.

500ml bottle. Hazy golden with one finger white head. Fruity yeasty aroma with citrus, orange, slightly doughy fresh baked bread and light malts. Taste is white bread, light fruity yeast, light citrus and light orange. Light mouthfeel, medium carbonation and smooth light bready aftertaste.

From a sixpack of different Bavarian beers received as a gift from a colleague, cheers Glenn! Now apparently with a different label (different picture and name changed to Kellerbier Hell, to distinguish it from the Dunkel version, I assume), at 5% ABV. Densely moussy, irregularly lacing, egg-white, creamy head, fairly stable and only slowly showing gaps in the middle, crowning a straw blonde beer with somewhat greenish hue, equally hazy as is to be expected from a Kellerbier, with tiny pearls of carbonation rising up here and there. Rather unusual aroma of cooked Brussels sprouts (clearly something sulfuric that should not be there - even reminiscent of H2S when warming up), damp cloth, soggy sandwiches, melting butter, dough, raw spinach leaves, potato starch, hot camomile tea, chalk, straw, unripe banana peel, pond water, rubber. Soft, rounded onset, minerally notes (as in magnesium-rich sparkling water), some very restrained fruitiness (hint of pear) due to the yeast and in that sense logically less neutral than a filtered lager, but lacking a bit in refinement compared with the great Franconian Kellerbiere; carbonation is medium. Some basic grainy sourishness underlies a more mellow, bready malt body, mouthfeel remains soft, smooth and notably soapy, overall impression is dryish, as expected from the style. The finish brings an extra touch of breadiness due to the yeast, lingering soap or butter flavors and floral hops, providing a light bitterness accentuated by the minerals. Pale malt sweetishness with a yeasty touch remain dominant after swallowing. Very thirst-quenching and even appetizing beer, but the heavily sulfuric stinky sprouts in the nose are not the most elegant impression Ive encountered in a Kellerbier so far - this is not the most appealing representative of its style, Im afraid. Still passable for its quenching qualities alone.

Cloudy beer poured into a dimpled mug. Citrusy taste followed by notes of malt. Full body mouthfeel for a light beer. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
