Bottle sample at Schouskjelleren in Oslo. Supposedly fresh, it smells and tastes of stale fruit and old yeasty powder and it is noticeably oxidized. Sweet, a little bitter, low acid leaves it flabby. Notebook paper becomes so strong to render it undrinkable, and the lifeless hop expression and peaked malt leave you unfulfilled. Such a poor example.

0.5l bottle. This is a blurry kinda golden looking one with a nice big just off-white head with a good retention. Smells quite hoppy and fruity compared to what I think of when I think Keller bier. Grassy earthy hops, some citrus tones and a little bit of herbal flowers. Smells quite nice. The mouthfeel is surprisingly full and almost oily while the carbonation level is just above average. Gliding in the mouth it has a nice grassy earthy hop flavor. A little bit of sweetness is definitely detected here and it’s extremely lightdrinkable. Not over exciting but still a fine specimen of its genre IMO. 07.08.2013

Lightly hazed pale golden with a thin off white head.
Nose is tarte fruit, bitter orange, earthy.
Taste comprises orange pith, light pine, grapefruit, melon.
Medium bodied, fine carbonation, dry finish with subtle hop bitterness.
Tasty enough but a vastly hopped up take on the style.
