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.

On tap at The Back Abbey in Claremont, CA.

Pours a clear orange with a foamy beige head that settles to a partial film on top of the beer. Small dots of lace form around the glass on the drink down. Smell is of malt, fruit, and grassy aromas. Taste is much the same with grain and grassy flavors on the finish. There is a mild amount of hop bitterness on the palate with each sip. This beer has a lower level of carbonation with a slightly crisp mouthfeel. Overall, this is a pretty good beer with some nice grassy hop aromas and flavors that make it easy to drink.

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.
