COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
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!

Butters (3966) - Richmond, Virginia, USA - SEP 18, 2010
Sampled at the Richmond Gathering XII. Very clean, crisp, and spot on for style. I’d rather have the tuppers. But for an american brewery trying the style, this is damn good.

maniac (3800) - Baltimore, Maryland, USA - SEP 18, 2010

mansquito (4196) - Nueva York, New York, USA - SEP 2, 2010
Brooklyn Beer and Soda ($10): Pours golden with white head. Skunky aroma coupled with hops. Don’t know if this beer has been sitting too long... maybe seeing as it is a spring seasonal. In any case, it tastes fine. Vegetal aspects might be getting the best of it by now. Doughy feel to it. Very, very crisp. Exactly what I need right now considering that I have been cleaning my overly hot house all day.

elgiacomo (745) - Ringgold/Fort Oglethorpe, Georgia, USA - AUG 29, 2010
12oz bottle. If I’m reading the codes correctly, this is best by Aug 30, 2010 and was bottled May 3, 2010. Pours lightly hazy pale straw gold with a small white head. Aroma has some citrus/lemon, also grassy, floral, and herbal with some grain. Good strength. Flavor is some citrus, mostly lemon, herbal and floral hops, some grainy malt, light bitterness with some fair sweetness, finishes relatively dry. Mouthfeel is light to medium bodied, slick, medium carbonation. Very easy drinking, crisp and refreshing, particularly considering it is 1 day from the best by date. Will definitely nab a fresh sixer next spring!

jarow (237) - Massachusetts, USA - AUG 27, 2010
Bottle. Pours a hazy golden straw color with a foamy white head. Nose is sweet, grassy, with some citrus and a hint of a sour aroma. Taste is more grassy hops, some yeast, earthy malts. Finishes short and crisp, medium bitterness fading into a more earthy aftertaste. Great surprise for a bottle I picked out completely at random - a thoroughly tasty and enjoyable beer.

AtlAggie (241) - Atlanta, Georgia, USA - AUG 25, 2010
On tap. Straw/wheat color, slightly cloudy. Very refreshing beer, good carbonation, grassy hops, very slight sweetness, lingering grain on the finish. Really nice flavor and complexity for the style, very drinkable. Well done.

Nena (963) - Seattle, Washington, USA - AUG 24, 2010
Golden pour with a short white head. Herbal hops on the aroma, but the nose was mostly dominated by a metallic, rancid nuts. The flavor was less dominated by that trait, with bready, biscuity malt become apparant, grassy, floral hops crisply finishing it out. Refreshing moderately white body. I wish I could stop tasting this funky off flavor in most of the lagers I try.

after4ever (6731) - Brier, Washington, USA - AUG 21, 2010
12 oz. Thanks ben! Pours crystal clear pale gold. Loose white film. Nice earthy leafy grassy nose. Crisp lightish body. Earthy grassy mid palate. Long grassy finish. A little crackery. Refreshing and delicious.

riversideAK (5738) - Shoreline, Washington, USA - AUG 21, 2010
Nice sweet grassy nose, bready and fresh. Pours hazy light golden, fizzy white ring around the edges. Clean and grassy, light lemon, bread. Nice carb, very drinkable and refreshing.
