3.43/5  rDev -10.7%
look: 3 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3 | overall: 3.5

Poured from a 500ml swing top bottle into a pint glass. Bottling code which appears to be Julian and if so would be 5/24/12 so guessing that's bottled date as this just entered the TX market. It was a very cloudy honey color with slight carb streams. It had a small head that quickly dissipated into a very thin collar. Minimal lacing with none sticking.

My first keller bier so nothing to compare to as to style. The aroma was caramel malt, light fruit and bready malts. Good lager aroma to it. Smells sweet. The taste follows the aroma with a bready and caramel backbone and fruit and yeast highlights to add some character to it. It is pretty sweet but, for me, stops short of being too sweet. Light and bit watery mouthfeel. Could use some more carbonation as well.

Overall, an easy drinking lager that hits the spot if you are looking for something smooth with moderate flavor (i.e. not wanting a hop bomb). Recommend if you can get it especially since this is one of the rarer styles and hard to find (I know - been trying for several yrs). New to TX market. Rotation - would like to try on-tap at least once. Not sure if I'd buy again in bottle unless the mood struck me.

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.
