COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
An unfiltered lager that has a fine balance between malt and hops. Red lagers are traditionally unfiltered (kellerbier), and are found in small breweries throughout Bavaria. Brewer Todd Leopold brought this overlooked style back to America after he finished his studies at a brewing school located just outside of Munich.

A sour edge to this that I don't care for, but the spiciness is intriguing and its very fresh tasting.

Draft at brewpub. Poured clear brown with an average frothy off-white head that was mostly lasting with fair lacing. Moderate toasted malt aroma. Medium body with a smooth texture. Medium sweet flavor with a medium sweet finish of moderate duration. Sweet drinkable beer.

There was a little bit going on here beneath the sour, musty yeast. Namely, a smidget of cereal, a pinch of toast, a partial bread crumb, and a grain of earthy hops. The yeast is simply too much for this beer.

UPDATED: JAN 19, 2006 a nice hazy oragne appearance with large white head....aroma of a watered down and bland pale ale...flavor is the same witha touch of hops (pure citrus and lemon concentrate)...somewhat yeasty; okay palate....thanks to the Leopold Bros. for making a drinkable beer...FINALLY

Draft at the Leopold Brothers Brewery. Appearance was a white head, sparse lacing, uncarbonated, transparent, and a yellow hue. Malty and toffee aroma. Sweet, malty and chewy flavor. Mouthfeel was sticky, gummy, thick and dry. Medium bodied.

This draft brew from the brewery poured a small sized head of unnoted finely sized long lasting white colored bubbles that left behind a fair lacing. The body contained very soft carbonation, was transparent and orange in color. Its aroma contained notes of malty orange peel . Its mouth feel is initially tingly mild with a strong tingly crisp palate and a aftertaste. Its flavor contained malty hoppy notes and was. A very average brew.

Ah the first Canadian to rate this fine brew. I was impressed I liked it. Mild aroma nothing striking but flowery. Looks red nice frothy foam that was huge and pillowy. The colour was orangy yellow and cloudy. The flavour was really hoppy and citrusy.

Yeasty and tangy, this one is hard to put a real read on. But I liked it. Ya gotta give a big score for effort on an unfiltered Kellerbier, though, don't you?

A very interesting red lager. Pours out to a reddish-gold in the glass. Aroma is that of malt with a slight yeast smell. Taste is quite malty, but not overbearing. The hops are there, but not to the extent of say a Bell's Amber. A nice, quaffable offering that would go good with a burger or steak off the BBQ.

3.3

Bottle. One of the two bottles currently available from this brewpub. Not much red in the color (golden) but a nice foamy white head. Some berries in the aroma. A nice malty touch to a red lager. Not a whole lot of character, but this style does not expect much.
