Review - Harpoon Brewery's 100 Barrel Series: Kellerbier
"Our Kellerbier is made in the German style that is traditionally matured in un-bunged wooden barrels in caves. The lower alcohol and low carbonation accent the balance between the generous amounts of German malts and hops used to make this beer. Surprisingly thirst quenching, this beer goes wonderfully with many different food styles, or by itself." -- Harpoon Brewery
This beer forms a nice fizzy light-brown head, with excellent lacing on the glass that lasts throughout the beer. The beer is a sparkling clear dark amber color with tiny bubbles. The Kellerbier has a light bread scent, as well as a hint of hay. It has a moderately hoppy aroma, with a bit of orange. Initial taste is moderately bitter which carries right through to the finish, which lasts a long time on the mouth. The Kellerbier has medium body on the palatte, leaving a dry texture, despite soft carbonation. There is a slight metallic, and somewhat chalky feel left in our mouths.
