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!

otakuden (1783) - Vero Beach, Florida, USA - JUL 21, 2013
Appearance: Golden cereal grains and orange with a light haze. The white head fades into a thin white collar surrounding a broken layer of white.
Nose: Herbal, bready, yeasty, and orangey with the bitter zest of orange skin in the back. Freshly baked whole grain breads still slightly warm to the touch with a golden brown crust. Wheat grass. Dried herbs in the bread.
Palate: Bready, yeasty, grassy, nutty, whole grain seeds and cereal grains, and wheat grass. Chewy mouthfeel thanks to being unfiltered, hence the light haze. Bitter bite in the back of dried grass and herbs. Finishes dry, thirst quenching, and thirst inducing. Table crackers and toast underneath for support and some crisp crunch.
Final Thoughts: Brilliantly balanced flavorful Keller Pils from the genius brewers at Southampton Publick House. Southampton brews clean beers that are perfectly to style without being boring or underwhelming. In fact, they are over-achievers, raising the bar for other brewers who dare to brew in the same vein. Delicious.

maxwelldeux (3812) - Everett, Washington, USA - JUL 19, 2013
Bottle. Pours a hazy dark golden color with a smallish white head on it. Nose is nice a light, with the sweetness of a lager aroma and just a hint at some citrus in there. Taste is crisp and ever-so-slightly sweet as well. Very easy summer drink with just a hint at some citrus.

nealblind (918) - Seattle, Alabama, USA - JUL 13, 2013
Orangey hazy pour. Some white head. Aroma of beans, honey, wheat and barley. Sweet boozy flavor like a barleywine. Some tart mouthfeel and some soft particles smoothing it out. A very nice level of effervescence. Seems higher than 5% because of how big in flavor it is with a slight alcohol burn.

TURDFERGUSON (3969) - Durham, North Carolina, USA - JUL 13, 2013
Bottle at home. Also had this on tapas BCTC several years back. This is a really solid unfiltered pils that I am psyched is to see on the shelves around here. Grassy, biscuit malts, very little graininess, very clean and bright.

durhambeer (2500) - Durham, North Carolina, USA - JUL 11, 2013
Bottle from Sam’s Quik Shop in Durham. Nice to see these beers again. Pale straw gold with a white head. Nose is a bit soapy and floral at first, but then more subtle aromas emerge, including fresh croissants and a hint of almond paste. Taste adds grassy bitter notes. Solid.
