Nice blend of Pilsener malt and citra hops.

In a Brooklyn Octoberfest Glass: semi-clear honey color with a 4F head. Good retention.

Nice combo of citrus, lemon and Pilsener malt in the aroma.

Taste is not as strong as the aroma- light fruit and malt.

Light MF, moderate bitternfinish.

I really enjoyed this beer on a day during early evening. Well-done combo of citra and Pilsener malt.

Bottled two months ago. Very clear lemon yellow with an inch of fluffy head. I guess they filter this variety, no noticeable yeast has settled in this bottle - but that doesn't line up with the description of Keller Bier style - not sure what happened with this bottle. Smell is slightly lemony. Taste is lemony with substantial bitterness in the pilsener taste. Feel is well balanced, refreshing with moderate carbonation - bitter aftertaste is a little puckering. Overall, this is pretty good although more bitter than I would like and somewhat lacking in other pilsener tastes.

Hazy, light gold color. Modest head which leaves nearly no lace (a couple of small spots).

Berry like sweetness. No notable hop nose.

Much better hop presence on the tongue. The sweetness is muted as a flavor and the pilsner malt is solid and soft. Nicely done for the style except the hop flavor is stronger and more biting. Good body with a slightly higher than average carbonation. Good bitter finish and aftertaste.

12oz. bottle served in a nonic. Pours a hazy straw gold with a loose, quarter inch, off-white head that slowly dissipates into a soapy slick. Nose expresses citrus kinda hint of skunk. Taste consistent with nose with the addition of an earthy hops bittering at the finish. Mouthfeel is light-medium in body with an assertive carbonation. All and all, decent but nothing overly impressive here.

Love the stubby bottles. This is a solid beer. Clean, crisp straight-forward beer. I could drink a ton of these!
