Pours a slightly foggy amber or bronze color. I believe this is my first Keller Bier… if that is actually a style with in itself. Slightly malted on the nose as well as some fruit aromas. The taste is just excellent, just the right amount of hop bite, with a nice malt backdrop, and nice fruit flavors / green apples I think stood out? All that and more can be tasted on the palate...balanced very well…. I agree with Thrasher “I would kill to try other Keller type beers”…Overall an excellent brew!

Cloudy amber lager with ample head. Not sure if this is a pilsener, in fact I think keller should be its own category, although I suppose it could also be considered an unfiltered pilsner. This bottled sample is slightly damaged, either from age or travel; otherwise it would get 5's on taste from me. This is a terrific beer, full and malty in the mouth with just the right amount of hop prickliness. Roasty apple and whole grain (oatmeal?) bread flavor, simple clean finish; a great all around beer. Would kill to try other keller type beers; to me it's more satisfying and versatile than a pilsner.

Presentation: 500ml European style brown bottle. No freshness date, but the label has this cool picture of a knight on a horse who's sticking the end of a flag banner pole in a dragons mouth. He's kicking that dragon's ass actually.

Appearance: Pours a rich amber to light brown, naturally cloudy liquid with an ample amount of thick, creamy off-white head that sticks and slides on the glass.

Smell: Extremely aromatic melding of toasted malts and hops. Touch of fruity cherry-like aroams.

Taste: A rich brew of complex dry malt qualities. Toasted flavours, earth, caramel, raw grain, faint hay and wood. Extremely light touch of butter (diacetyl) and there's an underlying malt crispness to the brew with an even more sublte tartness that is nearly undetectable (oxidation from aging). Sweetness is light, a watery caramel-like flavour. Smack of fruitiness that segues to a pronounced and distinct hoppy character which is bold, but not overly bitter and perfectly balances and complements the dry malt profile with a strong tea-like herbal spice consistency. Alcohol notes pull thru as the beer warms. The overall beer is actually light on the palate, low in carbonation with smooth mouthfeel. Finishes with earth flavours.

Notes: Unfiltered, unpasteurized, unkraeusened and unbunged. Keller Bier is an age-old recipe, allowed to settle ungespundet (unbunged) in solid oak barrels before being tapped.

One of the most unique and flavourful beers I have yet to try. Certainly at the top of my list for lagers. A god brew. All bow and pay homage.
