3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
500 ml flip-top bottle bought at Gorgeous Wine & Cigar in Yuen Long.
Cloudy hazy amber brown colour with some dirt-like yeast sediments; Two and a half finger head and crumpety off-white foam which lasted for 3 minutes; Excellent, beautiful sticky lacing and near zero carbonation; Fragrant aroma of lager malt, with honey, light musty, floral nectar, molasses, thick bread, yeast, light lemon and light grass; Pleasant, mid to light sweet taste of full malt, with caramel, light floral nectar, molasses, dark bread, biscuits, strong yeast, fairly light lemon and light grassy hops; Mid to light body, quite thick palate; Mouth feel is pretty fulfilling malty lager, quite thin body, not much carbo, very easy to gobble down; Good essence of floral, honey nectar and light molasses, plus strong yeast and breadyness as if I am drinking a sweet dark bread. Yummy! Hoppiness is light lemon and very l;ight grassy hops in nose and tasse. Bitterness comes in notes for a malty juicy finish; Quite dry after taste, very easy to mouth.
Comments: This is an all-round solid Keller Bier - good colour, great head and beautiful lacing, malty and nectar-like taste dark bread palate, and notable yet low key hoppiness. Highly drinkable and enjoyable, grab one when you see ‘em!
