Kellerbier means "cellar beer" and this style was developed during, if not before, the Middle Ages. It is a smooth, unfiltered lager which has a strong hop aroma and cloudy appearance. A generous amount of caramelised malt is used, which accounts for its deep amber to reddish colour. Traditional Kellerbiers are matured while the yeast is still active, in wooden casks which do not have the bung tightened. This means gas that is created by the sugars fermenting is able to escape through the bung hole, and the result is a beer with little effervescence.
