decent pils here, but they call it a keller pils on the menu. i was under the impression that the keller part indicated that it was an unfiltered example of the style, but this beer is almost perfectly clear on the pour, and looks super light in general, even for the style, more pale straw color than yellow or golden, and quite minimalist. aroma and flavor are great, you get just enough of the lager yeast on top of the light crackery imported pilsener malt, and just a dash of spicy earthy hops to finish, very understated overall, but very well made. i think pils is a funny style, in that the very best ones almost all taste the same, its brewed to a standard, so the better it is, the closer they seem to be to uniform, something i have not observed in other styles to this degree, so while this is very good, its also kind of samey, which is more the fault of the style than the recipe. i was hoping for a little more grain and yeast character given the keller in the name, but hard to complain about a good clean pils like this one.

Braumeister Pils pours a very nice cloudy yellow with a nice white head. The nose has hints of toasted grains and nice amount of hops. There is some sweetness, typical for the style. A very nice pils with a good carbonation and a dry crisp finish. Perfect of the style.

Pours a pale yellow with a solid head that lingers well. Lots of lacing on the glass. Smells of pilsner hops - this version more floral. Taste is consistent with the smell - floral but with a bit of piney background. Compared to the Prima option at Victory this has a little less "pop" but still good.
