Weihenstephaner 1516 Kellerbier

This 5.6% ABV unfiltered Kellerbier is from the Weihenstephaner brewery in Freising, Bavaria, Germany. It is brewed to celebrate the 500th anniversary of the Bavarian Purity law mandating only water, hops, malt and yeast in German beer.

The beer pours lightly hazy, dark honey golden in color. There is a tall, and very thick, head of white foam. The aroma is bread, honey, straw, wildflowers. The taste follows the aromas, very bready, a touch of sweetness along with the flavor of honey, a light dusting of straw, before coming to a dry and fairly bitter, grassy, finish. The beer drinks exceptionally easy, with a sharp tingling of carbonation. This is a delight for lager lovers.
