4.4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
Pours clear gold yellow w/ bone white head that lasts until about halfway through the glass, leaving faintest lacing on itís way down.
Smells of grassy green slightly bitter citric hops...mostly Saaz, though there must be a few others. Itís a great mild, yet assertive smell--perks the nose right up.
Crisp Crisp peppery hop bite up front. Tongue gets a little nipping, and then itís a crispy smooth washing across the tongue of fresh-cut green citric goodness, followed by a soft bready malt backbone. After the liquid has passed the mouth the tastes dissolve into a dryness with an ever-so mild bitterness. Wonderful dry finish.
Body is medium to low, making it light and airy-effervescent in the mouth. Drinkability is enormous due to the hoppy addictive taste, the slim but substantial body, and the wonderful dryness at the end of each sip make this one highly quaffable. My current favorite pilsner.

Rerate: Canned version from TomDecapolis. I had to rerate this b/c I know this is a fresh version and it was damn good. Pours a nice clear gold with lively carbonation, medium pure white head which is long lasting and leaves nice streaks of lace. Aroma is fresh bready pils malt, and light spicy noble german hops. Flavor is really nice and malty upfront, but nto too sweet, and finishes with a nice clean bitterness. Very full bodied for the style, yet still finishes a bit dry and crisp. Very refreshing. One of the best pilsners I have had. Thanks Tom.

Big bright yellow pour...fluffy white head. Nose is full of spring grass, light hops, a variety of grains. Not shabby considering it spewed forth from a can. Flavor is nice...light citric hops, nicely bitter, tangy citrus flavor. Thin bodied, but smooth...medium carbonation. Not my favorite style, but this was good.

3.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Can from Tom Decapolis. Aroma sparks of a hoppy orange flavor. These qualities are inherent in the taste along with a sharp bitterness which I associate with the pilsner style. Its a bit rougher than Pilsner Urquell but tastier. It is pretty dry and the only think I dislike is the slight pine flavor which seems more dominant as this beer reaches room temperature. This one definately is making me want to visit Sly Fox.

UPDATED: DEC 15, 2005 Original Rating (7-4-7-4-14=3.6): Slyfox Keller Pils: Grainy cereal malt aroma features herbal and leafy hop tones and a light sulfury note. Clear golden body is topped by a decent and lasting white head that leaves some lace. Herbal, leafy, lightly spicy hops with grainy, cereal malts and fair finishing bitterness that balances it all out. Light, refreshing body with lively, strong carbonation. Sampled at GABF 2005.
Rerate (6-3-7-3-13=3.2): Mildly toasty, grainy malt aroma. Hazy golden body is topped by a low, fine bubbled, white head that lasts well. Assertive bitterness to the spicy, herbal hop flavour with a clean, fresh malt profile that is lightly grainy. Medium light body with lively carbonation that engages the tongue. Sampled on tap at the brewpub with beerbuzzmontreal, egajdzis, Eyedrinkale, MartinT, Rastacouere and Yowie.

Draft. Poured light golden with a thick white head. Less sparkle then the Victory but thatís ok. Smell had citrus, lemon and saaz hops. Good maltiness in the taste and citrus mouthfeel. Really good Pilsner.

A very enjoyable draft beer on a hot 92 degree day in Philadelphia. Cloudy rather than brilliantly clear, rich golden color with a good head. Taste is more bitter than a modern Pils, with a good salty Czech hops finish.
