Impression: First one came in a cool old Krug so no visuals. Second one in glass is unfiltered chestnut with a rocky off-white head. Nice mix of grain and roast in the nose with a touch of hops. Even though I’m not a huge roast fan, I love it in this beer. It just mixes in so well with the dry hoppy palate. In many ways, this is a classic Kellerbier to me. It’s supremely dry and yet only mildly bitter. Not sure you get beers in the 5% range like this anywhere else.

Next beer or back to the beer list.
