Kulmbacher Kellerbrau (8/10)

German brewer Kulmbacher produces this unfiltered lager.

It pours a cloudy coppery brown, which is not surprising for an unfiltered beer. The head is a bit more than finger thick. It is off white in color and creamy looking. Thin rings of lacing are left behind on the glass.

The aroma is a mix of malty caramel sweetness and alcohol.

The flavor is exceptionally well balanced, neither especially malty or overly hoppy. The flavor is consistent from the first sip through to the aftertaste, which is very mildly bitter.

Beer Advocate rates this as "very good" or 85/100. I like it, and agree that it is a very good (but not great) beer.

I've seen this beer for sale at Kenny Road Market, The Anderson's General Store in Dublin, Giant Eagle Market District in Kingsdale, Whole Foods Market in Dublin, and Whole Foods Market in Upper Arlington.

ABV: 5.4%
IBU: unknown, estimate 18-20
My Rating: 8/10
