4.3 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
UPDATED: MAY 23, 2013 Draft at the Keller (on two occasions).
Head is mostly diminishing.
Body is medium to dark yellow.
Aroma is moderately malty (toasted grain/bread, cookie), moderately hoppy (herbs, flowers), with notes of honey, lime zest, pineapple, spearmint.
Flavor is moderately sweet, lightly acidic, lightly to moderately bitter.
Finish is lightly sweet, lightly acidic, moderately to heavily bitter.
Medium body, velvety texture, lively carbonation.
Remarkably tasty, and very pilsner-ish...quite herbal/spicy-hoppy with very assertive (but very clean) bitterness. Impossible to stop drinking due to the superb balance and wonderfully fruity-honeyish aroma. I think I actually prefer this to the Witzgall, but both are excellent. Also tried from bottle (purchased at the keller), and while a little less explosive in the nose, it’s still excellent...which is a relief considering how much inconsistency I’ve been finding from sample to sample in many other brewers.
Bottle from Hopfen und Malz, Berlin. Light pale with small ring of foam. Grassy malty aroma. Taste is surprisingly more complex. Sweet orange cream and malts. Finish brings in some hops. Wow, really cool Kellerbier! Would come back to this one for sure. SinH4 (6113) - Garching b. M?nchen, GERMANY - OCT 13, 2017
Bottle, my 1000th Bavarian beer. Poured into a Stein, but it looked like it was slightly hazy yellow, with a creamy white head. Aroma is delicately malty, grassy, citrusy, orange peel, a bit nutty. Taste is typical Franconian sweetish pale malts, orange and citrus, grassy, herbal, again a bit nutty. Super velvety mouthfeel with low natural carbonation. One of the many pinnacles of Landbier that Franconia has to offer, this is a true gem of Lager. Can't wait to have it on tap at the brewery soon! kerenmk (5038) - Tel Aviv, ISRAEL - OCT 6, 2017

Draught @ Akkurat. Pours a slightly hazy yellow color. A grainy and hoppy kellerbier with a rough feel to it (in a good way). Notes of citrus, herbs, flowers and orange cest. Light mouthfeel.

Balanced, hoppy and fresh lager. Modern. martythesmarty (391) - SWEDEN - FEB 25, 2017
Draught. Pours hazy golden with a white head. Really sweet aroma with notes of butter. Taste has sweet notes of flowers. Ritzn (1709) - GERMANY - OCT 10, 2016
Aroma is grainy, sugar and wheat. Taste is artificial grainy sweetness and citric sourness. Light and easy to drink. Full body though. Ok but too grainy for me. FinnIckler (784) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - OCT 8, 2016
Tap at braustelle brauhaus. Pours golden. Smells of grain. Taste is dominated by grains, medium tarteness. Finish is long and grainy again. Good Moravius (1403) - Berlin, GERMANY - SEP 21, 2016
UPDATED: SEP 28, 2016 Bügelverschlußflasche von Hopfen & Malz, Berlin. - Orangegelb, gut trüb. - In der Nase frisches, leicht brotiges helles Malz und keß orangenfruchtig-krautiger Hopfen. - Antrunk mild keksmalzig, weißbrotähnlich. Milde Hopfenaromen von Orangenmarmelade und Zitronenschale. Fein perlend rezent. Trockener Abgang mit ordentlich orangenschaliger aber ein wenig „leerer“ Bittere und schön kellerigen Anklängen. - Gut herbes, fast ein wenig asketisch wirkendes Kellerbier, das etwas fruchtiger sein könnte.
