4.75/5  rDev +23.7%
look: 4 | smell: 4 | taste: 5 | feel: 5 | overall: 5

Appearance – This one gave off a beautiful white head and the bier was a thick, cloudy dark orange.

Smell – The grain and malts here at the nose work together so well that it's hard to distinguish the two components. There's a light, aromatic sweetness to the nose that gives this KB a wonderful bouquet.

Taste – To me this is the perfect lager. The malty grain flavor is exactly what I think of when I think of German lager. There is a hint of mature sweetness here. It's not sweet like candy or fruit but like the sweetness that you can taste from a carrot or ear of corn only after having abstained from artificial sugars for a week. I can't see any way that you could make this taste better.

Mouthfeel – This is one of the smoothest beers I have ever had from a bottle. It's a bit bigger than light-bodied but not yet medium. It leaves a wonderful aftertaste and is a pleasure to slide around in the mouth.

Drinkability – This is German Keller Bier at its best. You won't find a better sample stateside.

PS: I grilled up some big, fat Italian sausages and some Hungarian, Anaheim, and Thai red peppers with white onions and tossed it all in between a couple split brotchen and used this KB to wash it down. Man that was tasty.

look: 3.75 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4

A-Poured into a small snifter with a two finger slighty off white head that fades quikly to a thick creamy cap with a nice hazy walnut color.

S-the nose is syrup and molasses, rasins, dates and dryied fruit.

T- Rasins, Dates, Prunes, Resin, fermented fruits and a hint of mint on the back end.

M- Light and heavy all at the same time with a slight bite on the sides of the tounge on the finish.

O- not a bad beer would be great to talk over with friends would purchase this beer again

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

500 ml Bottle with ceramic swing top cap

A: Nice light amber color, cloudy. off-white head that dies down after a minute. Some lacing.

S: Very light malt and yeast scents. Not picking up much hops. Hay.

T: Some malt and oak. Nothing too complex happening here. Straight forward clean flavors. A nice lasting slightly bitter finish.

M: Medium mouthfeel, light carbonation.

O: This is my first experience with a Keller beer. Let me say that I am not a big fan in general of Lagar beers, I really enjoy the complexity of yeasty flavors in ales. So that is why my ratings may seem a little low.

Having said that, this Keller beer did show some character, especially when it warmed up.
