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!

jbruner (2715) - Athens, Georgia, USA - OCT 24, 2013
Pours a carbonated hazy golden yellow from the bottle with no real head or lacing. Aroma is nice bready grain and pils malt. Taste follows, clean and crisp. Pairs nicely with a big burley cheese, but otherwise just an easy drinker.

superspak (3005) - Michigan, USA - OCT 7, 2013
12 ounce bottle into lager glass, no bottle dating. Pours moderately hazy golden straw color with a 1-2 finger dense and fluffy white head with fantastic retention, that reduces to a nice cap that linger. Light spotty soapy lacing clings down the glass, with plenty of streaming carbonation retaining the head. Aromas of lemon, pear, apple, grape, floral, grass, light pepper, cracker, bread, light honey, and herbal/yeast earthiness. Very nice aromas with good balance of malt, hop, and yeast ester notes; with good strength. Taste of lemon, pear, apple, grape, floral, grass, biscuit, light honey, light pepper, and herbal/yeast earthiness. Slight earthy bitterness on the finish; with lingering notes of light fruits, floral, grass, biscuit, light honey, light pepper, and herbal/yeast earthiness on the finish for a good bit. Very nice balance of malt, hop, and yeast ester flavors; with nice flavor robustness and no cloying flavors after the finish. Medium carbonation and body; with a very smooth and lightly crisp mouthfeel that is good. Alcohol is very well hidden with minimal warming present after the finish. Overall this is a damn nice unfiltered pilsner style! All around nice balance of flavors; and very smooth to drink. A very enjoyable offering.

Hands-down the best pils I’ve ever had - everything about this beer was just what I wanted - bright and drinkable - light and refreshing. Fantastic.

Southampton Keller Pils. Serving: 12 oz. bottle from Total Wine Sterling. It pours a hazy light gold with a sustained, soft white head. The nose has a bit of yeast, grass, and biscuit. Nice depth of flavor with a slightly bready and cracker notes. Nice grassy bitterness. Light to medium body with a medium finish. An outstanding pils.

Bottle into a goblet. Nice golden hay pour with a thick white head that leaves moderate lacing. Floral, grainy, grassy aroma. Taste is nice and doughy, cracker, floral, grass. Thick almost chewy, but in a good way. Smooth, lightly crisp finish. Pretty nice!
