A 12 oz bottle at home on May 25, 2010.

Pours a slightly cloudy staw color. A thin white soapy head. Lotsa fizz.

Smells like... Budweiser. Some very light grains.

Everything is mild in the taste, a slight bitterness. A moderate balance of sweet in the middle which morphs into an odd metallic flavor for me. Dull finish.

Very light mouthfeel.

Lawnmower beer.

I have tried to be fair to this beer and I admit that I do not have a lot of experience with this style. I am a huge fan of the Southampton Double White!

Foamy white head that leaves some ring lace. The beer is hazy straw yellow color.

Slightly skunky, smells like a soured micro-brew.

Too similar to the macros for me, although to their credit there is a good hop finish to this beer. Thin body with a high level of carbonation, even for the style.

This beer pours a clear bright yellow with a thin head and minimal lacing. It's aroma is mainly lemons with cake and a hint of vanilla. The flabor leads off with lemons followed on the palate by birthday cake and a bubbly champagne-like snap. The finish reveals a note of hop bitterness but is balanced. The mouthfeel is light and refreshing. Southhampton Keller Pils is a good brew, recommended.

Ah crap, is this really a summer seasonal? Shame on me for buying a bottle with no freshness date. But also, shame on Southampton for not providing one and shame on the Fridge in Lancaster PA for selling this so far out of season.

a: Mostly clear pale golden, pours with a short lived fizzy head.

s: Sweet dough, minerals, plus a fair amont of fruitiness; pears mostly.

t: If this is old it held up ok, sort of. A bit too sweet, almost sugary, vague flavor. Nice breadiness and hint of minerals.

m: Sweetness makes this feel heavier than it should.

o: Probably pretty good fresh, oh well.

Reviewed solo, served out of a pint glass.

Appearance: I fear the worst, fizzy yellow with 1 finger of white head.

Smell: I get light malts with a hint of pilsner yeast.

Taste: Opens with a distinct hop profile that is later joined by an almost stale yeasty grain profile that I get with pilsners. There is that classic pilsner aftertaste.

Mouthfeel: Light bodied, with moderate carbonation and clean other than the pilsner aftertaste.

Drinkability: I would have this again on a warm summer day, I recommend this to those seeking a mildly hoppy and distinct open with a classic pilsner finish.

Thanks to for this extra.

A: Pours lighter straw color with a quarter of white head.

S: Very light malt aroma.

T: Light malt and minimal hops until the finish when they turn a little grassy.

M: Light body with average carbonation.

O: First beer from them.
