Visit an Old World lager brewery and the brewmaster will insist that you enjoy a "keller" beer direct from the aging tank. To a brewer this is beer at its purest: unfiltered, nuanced and gently carbonated. Southampton Keller Pils is just such a brew. And each year we make it with a different hop variety to create a unique interpretation of the pilsener style. Enjoy!

notalush (5449) - Denver, Colorado, USA - JUN 1, 2010
UPDATED: JUN 6, 2010 [Update - I tried the bottle version today for comparison, and the six packs are just as good as the draft version - it would seem that Phil has really hit his stride brewing on a larger scale] Growler from Big Z - pours a lightly hazy pale gold - soft, dry, herbal, grassy aroma - really wonderful and crisp - a bit of malt sweetness up front, followed by some light toasted graininess, but the star of the show here becomes the hops - dry, crisp, medium-bitter - malts become dry and crackery to compliment this - peppery, grassy finish - a fantastic pils.

Chronoflash (76) - New York, USA - MAY 31, 2010
A hyper clear straw colored body below a paper thin white head. Nose is very corn & grainy, with an acidic/citrus sting of hops (or is it floral?), light and clean smelling. A smooth, light-medium body (surprisingly), crispy clean mouthfeel and good, high carbonation. A coriander, orange peel, Lemon twang accompanies a moderately bitter finish on this classic pilsner.

12oz. Bottle: Aroma of pils malts, grains, cereal, and light hops. Poured yellow in color with a tiny, white head around the edges. Slightly hazy. Lightly sparkling. Flavor is medium to heavily bitter. Tastes of pils malts, grains, grass, Saaz hops, and a hint of flowers. Light to medium body. Dry texture. Average carbonation. Pils malt, grain, and light saaz hop finish is bitter and dry.

Beerlando (3342) - Orlando, Florida, USA - MAY 28, 2010
Draft at Redlight Redlight. The pour yields a lightly hazy, medium golden colored body. From the base, a wide column of slowly cascading micro-bubble streams feed a small, smooth head of off-white foam. Jagged, tattered lines of lacing scar the glass. The nose is delectably fresh and crisp, showing notes of lightly toasted white bread, cracker, dry, softly-sweet dough, and a healthy balance of lightly peppery, floral hop character. Flavors are the mirror image, again centered in excellently balanced, yeasty, bready dough as the malt base, with dry, crisp, spicy floral hops as the bittering counterpoint. There’s a nice, grassy zestiness in there as well. The palate sports a medium-light body with a softly lively carbonation, drinking as clean and crisp as just about any American made pilsener that I can recall. This is an excellent session beer. I could easily drink a boot of this stuff.

ChainGangGuy (4565) - Marietta, Georgia, USA - MAY 27, 2010
16 ounce pint - $6.00 at Taco Mac in Kennesaw, Georgia. Appearance: Served up a clear, yellow body with a finger-high cap of white suds and the standard laceworks on the way down. Smell: Pils malt with a delicate graininess to it and hop scnets of sliced lemon, unidentified spices, and distant cut grasses. Taste: Minimal sweetness from the pilsner malts. Slightly chalky, grainy dough character. Light lemon rind fruitiness. Grassy, spicy noble Hallertau hops with a good degree of complimentary bitterness. Lil’ squeak of acidity. Dry, grassy finish. Mouthfeel: Medium-light body. Medium carbonation. Drinkability: A good, quality pils and a refreshing way to beat the heat here in miserable, muggy ole Georgia.

GodOfThunder (1248) - Orlando, Florida, USA - MAY 26, 2010
Draft at redlight redlight. This is about as good as it gets for a Keller in America. Crisp, packing full flavor and delicious. Grain, corn and some dried grasses in the aroma. Nobel hops through the palate. Great beer.

dagimp (847) - Philly, Pennsylvania, USA - MAY 24, 2010
From a 12oz bottle into a pilsner glass. Pours yellow clear with a moderate amount of head. I thought these weren’t supposed to be unfiltered? This one certainly seemed crystal clear. Aroma of honey and mild hops, a little skunk too. Taste is smooth and crisp with a tiny amount of hops... I was hoping for a little bit more. A little skunk and some grass round it out. A very solid pilsner and worth drinking.
