VsXsV (4560) - Stockholm, SWEDEN - DEC 13, 2017
Bottle thanks to SinH4 through Nische. Big ups to the both of you! Light hazy light golden liquid with medium, fluffy egg shell white beer. Aroma of floral, herbal hops, light tea, light grain, bread, light nutty malt and very light fruity yeast esters. Taste is dry and light to medium bitter with notes of floral hops, mineral, light herbs, light grain, bread and soft yeast. Great, mellow maltbase with a minerally hop bite. Medium bodied with medium carbonation. Truly great Kellerbier. Absolutely lovely.

Massive thanks to SinH4 for fulfilling this major want & side thanks to Kraddel for logistics. #11300. BBF 06.01.2017 – BBF date should be very short. 500 ml. bottle. Low hazy thick creamy white head. Nose is bitter oily corn, orange peel oil, good quality bitter vegetable oil, not an off-flavour, low oily weeds, weed oil,… Massively drinkable fully cornbread, hop flowers, dandelions, good vegetable oil, fluffy corn, flowers, oily weeds & grass in the finish, oily weeds lingering, graham cracker, floral, white grape juice almost,.. Oily & stupidly drinkable. I still lack the vocabulary & experience for this stuff but this has further increased my interested & it is tasty stuff for sure. Lingering doughy, weeds oils. The more I drank of this the more I liked it, stuff like this needs a proper sessions. It has the perfect balance of sessionability to the max & changing unique flavours, every sip brings some new nuance. This is massively impressive. I think that I could just keep drinking this & adding tasting notes. End of the bottle kept me wanting only for more. Damn.

Thnx to SinH4. I had to promise to drink it very fresh. I chilled it as soon as I had the bottle, and opening it a few hours later. FRESH ! Pours unclear blonde, small white head fades rather fast. Smell is full, malty, medium-low intensity. Taste is creamy, bitter, intense pilsner malts, very intense, that is ! Bitterness provides a backbone, but doesn't overpower, and fades fast. it has a noble-hops character. medium to medium low mouthfeel, suitable for the style. Carbonation is very , very fine, and rather high in amount, but it works, given the size of the bubbles. Very, very drinkable indeed. Very clean fermentation profile. perhaps a very mild minor touch of DMS in the style, too little to be sure for me, and it's of course allowable in the style to have a minor touch. Very well made.

Super fresh bottle, courtesy of SinH4. Thanks Stefan! Slightly murky golden body with a stable, very active white head with great rendition. The aroma is full of floral notes, a bit grassy, spicy with light citric hops, some yeast, half dark bread. Starts out with light, juicy sweetness, but then it becomes quite dry as soft, but medium bitterness is transported by the bubbly carbonation. Creamy, medium body. Nice, grainy finish with a light touch of minerals from the water. This is depressing. It's so close to the lagers you grew up with. It is simple and very easily drinkable. At the same time, it just gets some things right that others don't.

kerenmk (5269) - Tel Aviv, ISRAEL - OCT 29, 2017
Bottle at Witzgall, Hallerndorf-Schlammersdorf, 6.10.17. lear gold with a foamy white head. Hay, minerals, slightly floral and rather malty aroma, sweetish taste, some (?) juice, malt and a little bit of earthy hoppiness. Quite balanced but nothing too outstanding.
