Pours a cloudy off-golden color, with a white fluffy head that dissipates slowly. Some lacing.
Smells of earth, malt, subtle hops and a hint of citrus. But not overpowering.
Taste is sweet malt, with some hints of citrus, and just a slight hop finish. A hint of hops in the after taste with lingering malty sweetness.
Mouthfeel has some creaminess up front, some carbonation and a full-bodies finish. Very smooth, and easy to drink.
A very nice beer. I was a little surprised that this is a Keller beer. It reminded me of a Helles, but the unfiltered style gave it some interesting subtle notes. I will buy this beer again.

Had a bottle sample of this at work the other night,I guess it's taking the spring seasonal spot next year with the Noble Pils becoming year around.Poured lighter hazed golden with a well formed 1/2 finger sticky white head atop.Some honey malt in the nose and that is basically it,faint lemon as well.Sweetish honey flavors at the onset with some firm toasted grain flavors,a smattering herbal hops in the finish with faint lemon.Not bad I think it is a good selection for a spring seasonal,its lighter but with a little substance.

A fair straw, with an orange underbelly. Sparse head with tight-ish lacing. Strong malt nose with a fair amount of overripe orange. A bit of lemon. Pretty good. Some tang at the outset with a grainy backdrop. The tang gives way to a strong, bready malt presence. Some nuttiness and some almost... graham cracker lays fat on the tongue. End mouthfeel could be a bit cleaner, but it's an eminently drinkable and flavorful beer.

A - Pours a hazy golden brown with two fingers of white head. Head has pretty good retention and leaves some spotty lacing.
S - Light bread aroma accompanied bit some citrus, some grassy hops and faint florals.
T - Nice bite of noble hops, some citrus, mostly orange peel and bread malts.
M - Mouthfeel is on the lighter side of medium, with a bit of bitter dryness on the finish.
O - Pretty enjoyable. I haven't had many in this style, and I like Surly Hell quite a bit more, but I would drink this again. It's an easy drinking, but still flavorful brew.
