3.81/5  rDev -2.6%
look: 3.75 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 4 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 3.75

Honey amber with lots of trailers of bubbles and shaving cream froth that rims.
Fresh dark honey with some bread dough and butterscotch.
Lots of toasty malts, a touch of yellow apple, a bit of caramel, a bready yeast hit and earth and spicy hops.
Caraway finish and cut hay linger.
Light, round, crisp.

First Zwickel. This threw me at first because this seems to strip out everything interesting about Keller and leave a toasty O'fest-type beer. As you get into it, though, you get the same balanced, even bitterness, and easy drinking as in a solid English session bitter.

Missing the depth of character I look for from an unfiltered lager, but has a thing of its own going on.

4.26/5  rDev +9%
look: 4 | smell: 3 | taste: 4.75 | feel: 4.25 | overall: 4.5

Poured from a 500ml bottle into a pint glass

Best before: 18/12/2014

A: Has a brownish amber colour, a small head which disappears quickly. Shows little carbonation

S: Can't smell much more than roasted malt

T: Tastes of malt and has a little bitterness with it

F: It is very light in body and the carbonation stays on the tongue for quite some time

O: It is SO awesomely drinkable. I really enjoy it. It definitely compares to a lager but it is much more malty and tasteful. I'll go and get a caste tomorrow!

look: 3.5 | smell: 3 | taste: 2.5 | feel: 2.5 | overall: 2.5

500ml bottle. Fluted mug. Deep brass color, veiled apperance. Off-white froth creates a close, thick & lasting head. Sweet maltiness, hints of honey & Noble hops to the nose. Sweet malts & floral hoppiness at first sip. Light to medium body. Moderate to high carbonation. Dense to watery texture. Sweet sensation is kept by green fruit & floral slight flavors just at the edge of cloyiness. Sweet finish. Herbal & floral infusion on the aftertaste.

look: 4.5 | smell: 4 | taste: 4.25 | feel: 4 | overall: 4.5

appearance: Nice brown to amber color, meaty head that screams backbone. NIce color blending that goes from dark at the top to light at the bottom. Really loving it.

smell: Hearty and robust smells that your can really feel the roasted barley. Really fills up your nose and says step up to something with a back bone.

taste: Fruit on the side with a nice sweetness, barely a bit of the hoppiness at the end just as it says good bye down the hatch. Slight smoke at the end to make you think of a warm place after a cold wet day.

mouthfeel: Not as much backbone as the smell lends for but great and full enough at the end to give it substance.

overall: A great brew deffinately one you should pick up if you see it. Almost woth goign well out of your way for. Really liking this brew.
