COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
We brew the strongly hopped Keller Bier traditionally according to an age-old recipe and then let it mature unbunged in deep vaults. Naturally cloudy; with bottom-fermenting yeast rich in vitamins, this very drinkable beer is frequently enjoyed out of a stein.

Cloudy indeed with a yeasty/grassy nose. Toasty, malty flavors dominate, but there are some hoppy notes in the finish. Very smooth throughout.

UPDATED: MAY 9, 2005 Sampled at the Southside Beer Expo. Nice to finally encounter this minor style. A nice little noseful of German hops for what appears to be your standard lager. Low carbonation as advertised, but still enough to give this a light zing. Malts seems a little "aged," in a good way.

Unfiltered and a light color but this hides a little extra hops than expected. Small head and a sweat aroma. Yeast makes most of the flavor stand out here which makes this a decent sipping beer.

Hazy deep golden in color with an orange hue and a small off-white head. Aroma ia flowery and bready. Flavor is bready, with toasted malt,a hint of orange and citrus, finishing somewhat bitter,acidic and astringent.

Volgon (2763) - Manchester, New Hampshire, USA - JUN 7, 2004
Cloudy orange with a small rocky white head. Sweet malts, full bodied, rich sweet (fruit-like), yet bitter flavor with way more characteristics than the aroma. An excellent beer with some interesting character.

Silphium (3188) - East Lansing, Michigan, USA - MAY 2, 2004
This is a pretty boring beer. I’ve had plenty of beers that tasted like this, but apparently this is a "Keller"bier. The body is a fairly clear copper, with a minimal off-white head. Aroma and flavor are dominated by earthy (fall leaves) hops, with a touch of toasty malt balancing the coveted flowers. Unfortunately this pairing fails to intrigue this rater’s palate. Boring and not worth seeking out; a disappointing example of a new style for me.

UPDATED: JAN 9, 2005 This is a great German beer to have in a bottle. Has a large creamy head and is a light, cloudy amber. Lots of lacing. Sweet caramel, apples and a little orange citrus are smelled. The taste both sweet and dry. It has cherries, vanilla and some oak. It also has the underlying orange-cream that strong IPA’s tend to have. Overall, a creamy medium mouthfeel. I am looking forward to having this again. I have had this a few more times since my initial rating. I still think it is a solid beer.

Hazy amber with a small white head. An intersting aroma of musky hops and bready malt. The flavor is equally as interesting, very earthy and malty with a good balance of hoppiness. Hard to believe that this is brewed in Germany, reminds of an English bitter. Very unique, I like it.

First rating of this unique style. Hard to tell if it is "good" for the style, but I'll try. Tea-colored pour with little to no head. Not much of an aroma other than a faint whiff of olive oil. Pleasant mouthfeel with an earthy, slightly hoppy flavor. Faint citrusy notes add some complexity to this one and a little bit more enjoyment. If it is supposed to be a hoppier version of a Helles, they have accomplished that. but not much else. But overall, not a style I will seek out.

Aurelius (4530) - Tallahassee, Florida, USA - APR 21, 2004
This was my first in this style, so bear with me if i get something wrong. Good label, looks just like freshly poured tea -- a woody red/green/brown. Interesting aroma -- some sugary notes, some graininess. Not a terribly deep flavor profile -- fairly dry with some citrus sweetness and acidity, zippy hopping. Light body, toast-grainy on the lips. Feeble carbonation.
