Tasted On: 10-10-2013
Freshness: Not indicated
Packaging: 500ml brown bottle, swing-top
Glassware: Seidel
Purchased: Single from Pour Vous, Hendersonville, TN

A: Clear, dark amber beer with 3 fingers of off-white head. Retention is good but there is not much lacing. I was expecting a cloudier beer than this based on the style notes.

S: Bready malts, plus spicy yeast and some earthy hop character. Nice

T: Caramel malts have some toasted flavor. Other tastes are woody and earthy hops.

M: The finish is fairly dry with a little vegetable unpleasantness in the aftertaste. Carbonation is average with a medium body.

O: All in all a good brew, but not very noteworthy. Would be better as a beer to have with a meal than all on it's own like I had.

Pours a rich amber with a nice two finger fluffy cream colored head. Nice, dark, somewhat see through. Looks appetizing!

Smells of nice nutty, creamy, honey, and cereal malts. Hard to pick up any hop notes, but the yeast is coming through.

Taste is first noticeable with that distinct cereal and toast note. Slight caramel malts with a touch of yeast. Again, it's hard to pick up any hop bitterness and is very subtle. Feels light and round on the tongue. Medium amount of carbonation in the appearance but feels like more. It has a nice amount of thickness for the abv of this beer. The drink-ability is pretty nice, something I could have with a meal or on it's own.

Overall, it's a great example of the style. This is one I would love to have on tap and something I could drink a lot of. Makes me want to explore the style even further.

Food pairings: Soft Pretzel, sausage, mashed potatoes, slow roasted beef

Poured from the bottle into a stange glass.

A very dark Keller, and quite clear actually. Dark brown chestnut like amber, with a light coffee tan like head of about a finger. Settles to a nice puck very slowly. This looks more like an Altbier to me though. Maybe something new variety wise here!

A nice aromatic caramel, but very light and clean. Light sweetness of clove sense and nutmeg, very light brown spices and brown toasted bread. Interesting.

Very light palate, with a clean clove and sweet caramel flavor. Lightly carbonated with a the mid palate forming with some good toasty aromas and sweetness. A solid palate fills with a little bit of raisin character and dark dried fruits. Kind of a nutty brown ale sense to this also, with dark fruit estery tastes.

This sort of reminds me of Dampfbier a bit but a lighter sweetness which is more noticeable and a good fruity character to it also. However, this is not what I normally want out of a Keller.

Poured from a bottle at das bierhaus, Burlington vt

Pours a deep amber with red hues. Little bits of light brown dissipate immediately. Great color. No bubbles

Very mild aroma. Light fruit and toasted nut with whole wheat bread.

Taste starts watery, then hits with flavors of whole wheat bread, slight toffee and a hint of raisin. Finishes with a lovely caramel/mild stone fruit flavor.

Light bodied, low carbonation, one of the cleanest finishes on a beer I've ever had.

Very nice, easy drinking beer that I'd gladly indulge in again.

look: 3.75 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.25 | feel: 2.75 | overall: 3.25

Appearance: Not much of a head (though it left several shards behind) and the liquid is clear but what is most notable is the color - the best comparison is the color of Scotch

Smell: Yeasty, with a strong caramel character

Taste: Malt heavy, with toast and caramel flavors dominating the front end; a smidge of grassy hop influence arrives in the middle, but the finish is a return to the form anticipated up front

Mouthfeel: Medium body with low carbonation

Overall: I can't get very excited by this beer - way too malty for my palate and the mouthfeel was flabby

Pours dull copper with a scant head, but good lace.

Honeyed malt and some grassy notes , as well as some caramel in the nose.

Malt forward, a bit thin and watery, but sweetness of malt helps. Mild bitterness, some sweet bread, a little fruit. Mild soft malt and light bitter in the finish.

Medium body, but seems thin.

Overall, ok. Highly drinkable as there are no harsh edges. Would tire of these after two, but still worth trying.

Poured from 500mL swing top bottle into a pint glass.

Appearance: medium brown hue with a haze-free body and a moderately strong effervescence. Head pours a finger of frothy ivory foam but dissipates pretty quickly. Not too bad.

Smell: sweet caramel malt aroma with a light dose of noble hops. Mild, but actually pretty well-composed.

Taste: caramel malt flavor with a lagery character. There's a hint of something plasticy right at the beginning; it's kind of off-putting.

Mouthfeel: medium-light body with a decent level of carbonation and an active, refreshing texture, if not exactly creamy. Not bad.

Overall: an interesting beer, worth a try if you're into the style. That weird flavor right up front, though, is a bit of a turn-off for me. There are better examples of the style.

Poured from a poptop covered brown bottle. Large bubbled head that settles to a single layer of tight foam. Some spots of lace on the glass. The broth is light brown and crystal clear.

Strong iron smell. There's a mildly sweet caramel malt aroma as well.

Lots of malt sugars in this beer--like dissolving a malt ball in the beer. Very little hop. The body is thin, the carbonation high. The iron is also in the taste. Think watered down Scotch Ale, even though this is a lager.
