3.9/5  rDev -0.5%

A-Slightly hazy golden with a medium bright white head that reduced slightly and left nice lace.

S-Musty grassy hops and a bit of sweet biscuit.

T-Slightly apple fruitiness with a sharp spicy bitter finish. Balanced well with a healthy dose of biscuity malt.

M-Medium-light body, quite sharp and crisp with a lingering herbal finish.

D-A nicely done brew. This one is a bit less earthy/fruity than I like. More pilsner-esque than I prefer...would like more "rawness".

On tap at the brewpub in Philadelphia. Pours a slightly cloudy cloudy gold with a thick white head. Aroma of raspberries and wheat malt. Flavor of wheat malt with a slightly sweet finish. Sweetness increases with warmth. Crisp and clean. Nice kellerbier.

On tap at Triumph Philly on 2/23/08.

A - Couldy golden/straw-colored body with unfiltered appearance. Half-finger white head quickly diminished but left some amazing lacing around the glass.

S - Aroma is a bit lacking. I detect some mild grassy hops, a bit of lemon zest and fruity yeast. There's also a faint bready/biscuity malt presence and some honey as well.

T - Very strong hop presence with lots of grassy hops and bitter lemon rind. Hops dominate but are held in place by a sturdy biscuity maltiness.

M - Medium body with just a slight oily texture. Carbonation is pretty spot-on... not too much, but enough of a presence to leave a nice prickle on the tongue. Finish is a bit dry and crisp.

D - Very nice unfiltered pilsner with plenty of hops. Nose was a little weak, but this brew made up points in the taste and mouthfeel departments.

Pours hazed golden with a thick white head that stays around and leaves plenty of broken rings of lacing on the glass.

Continental-type, floral hops shine through over a musty aroma and some graininess.

The taste is of Continental-type, floral/hay-like/grassy hops with a touch of mustiness with a firm, grainy malt backbone. Finishes crisp and dry.

Light-bodied, smooth and crisp.

This is a very well-crafted brew and a wonderful example of the style.

Oh man, it's great to walk into a brewpub and find a good keller bier. In my mind, this is like the lager version of the Belgian saison. It's pale, a little funky, and wonderfully drinkable. The malt is a touch sweet, but still has the depth of a great pilsner. The the hops roll through some great herbal, earthy, pine flavors with a little extra something from the yeast. Yummy, try this beer.

Slightly cloudy and hazy, deep golden-yellow color, with a large white head that became rocky. Head dissipated after a bit, but stuck around for a good while. Ample carbonation, there was always a coating on top, and left some very nice lacing on the glass.

Aroma of spicy hops, grass, hay and a note of earthiness. Not overwhelming, but pleasant.

Taste is sweeter than a pilsner, with the malt having a more pronounced effect on the flavor. Light malts, followed by a bit of spiciness from the hops; finishes clean and crisp.

Somewhere between light and medium bodied; a very pleasant beer to drink. Quite well done.
