4.21/5  rDev +6%
look: 4 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 4.25 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4.5

500ml to mug.

Appearance - Copper-orange color with some haze., White head starts at a couple fingers, ends as a swirly cap and thick ring.

Smell - Grainy malts, bread crusts, toasty malts, some pale malt toffee-like sweetness, light herbal and fruity hop. Kinda straight-up lager but nice, no real off-flavors or adjunct noticeable.

Taste - Great mix of toasty, grainy, sweet caramel malt. Very clean taste. A decent hop fix of herbal/grassy/spicy. Finish of buttery crackers and light fruity tones.

Mouthfeel - Smooth and malty, somewhat big feeling but great body, crisp, medium carbonation.

Overall - Probably one of the best straight-up lagers I've ever had, very clean, great flavors and body, little hop bite. Freshness may be imperative for this kind of goodness.

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

500ml brown bottle purchased from Healthy Spirits in San Francisco. I love a good kellerbier, so I'm always a little on the hunt for more.

Pours a pleasantly hazed golden colour: not as cloudy as some, but definitely unapologetically unfiltered. Head forms a fine crest of white that is a little disappointing in that it settles down quickly, and doesn't sustain any lace. Carbonation is fine, and it looks as though there's a little weight to the body. Looks decent.

Nose is also fairly good. Muted leafy hop characters blend with a distinct husky grain note which makes the beer feel quite raw and organic. There's a touch too much sweetness to my mind: beyond the sweetness of the grain there's a suggestion of honey. But mostly it's fairly clear and pleasant. Quite good.

Taste is also pretty solid. The structure is mostly bready malts with husk overtones leaving a little bran and flour dankness on the palate. Hops are a little muted, although there is a touch of that slightly phenolic or astringent bite on the back that you only seem to get in a keller and not in a pils. There's a touch of the sweetness from the nose, but the bite on the back manages to deal with it fairly effectively.

Feel is smooth, perhaps a bit heavy without the hop character to create some crispness on the back.

Overall: it's fine. It's decent. It's a reasonably well crafted beer. But a keller can be truly great, and this misses some of the aspects that can do it.
