Strong, malty aroma has a decided yeasty overtone. Pours a bubbly clear yellow with a fairly thick ivory head. Crisp, refreshing fruity has good malty, fruity and yeasty notes, a grassy hop bitter undertone, maybe nothing special but definitely enjoyable. Smooth texture lacks firmness, and fizz leaves something to be desired. Still a decent pilsner.

12 oz. brown bottle into a foothills glass

A: Dull hazy amber orange color. Like apple cider. No clarity. Minimal off whit foamy head. Not much carbonation visible. A bit of lace as drunk.

S: Sourdough bread and fruity hop scent. Nice.

T: Snappy bitterness from the hop giving way to a very good balance with the malty sweetness toward the end. Finishes bitter but clean. Malt more evident as the brew warms. Quite good and highly drinkable.

M: Light but not watery. More carb tingle than is visible which I like. Kind of cardboardy with a stiffness and the most minimal stickiness. I like this a lot.

O: Keller Pils is a pleasant surprise. Especially since, unless I misread the stamp, this beer appears to be pretty damned old but my fault for not seeing that in store. This is good enough IMO to buy regularly but at $10/6, I likely will only revist it if on special. It is very good though.

Pours a lovely hazy golden straw. It's a touch thinner this time around, but the nose is still lemony barnyard with a hint of hoppy goodness.
Has a nice full mouthfeel for its weight, and tastes on par for the Americanized style. Typical German Pilsner, but the drying hop finish sets it ahead. If your a Prima Pils fan give it a whirl.
Crushable. This sixer doesn't stand a chance...

Pours hazy and yellow with a scant head that fell fast and did not leave much lace. Nose is grass, sweet malt and lemon grass. Taste is dry, a touch buttery and a bit of lemon. Finishes with a slight bitter, some peach flesh and lemony notes. Coarse texture and a good mouthfeel.

12 oz bottle into a pint glass.

A: Pours a cloudy golden color. The head is a finger high, eggshell in shade, and quite fluffy. The retention is about average for the style, too. Some streaks of lacing are left behind - nothing significant, though.

S: Hrm, quite promising. The noble hops are there (subtle, but they're definitely there), along with some malty sweetness, white wine notes, and a bit of buttery diacetyl. Seems to be a well-rounded beer: not only are the notes balanced within one another, but both the hops and malts are equally perceptible.

T: The initial hop burst is equally grassy/bitter and peachy at the same time. Malts enter the picture near the back end, along with some peppery and lemony notes. It's reasonably deep/layered for a pilsner: it goes from fruity on one sip, to peppery, to malty, and all the way back to fruity. No doubt, this is better than the average pils.

M: Have I ever said how much I love the crisp bite of a good unfiltered beer? I don't like the coarse finishing texture that much, though. A beer like this should be very drinkable...and it absolutely is, so no real complaints otherwise. Good carbonation.

O: I could genuinely session this. This has enough flavor to make me want to take my time with it, but is still immensely drinkable. Would be great in the summertime, natch.
