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.

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 (3167) - 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 (4178) - 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.

rauchbier (3610) - Isle Of Beer, Lincolnshire, ENGLAND - APR 14, 2004
Bottle, from Fabeers in York. Amber bronze, almost no head, low fine natural condition and strangely free of haze if you discount the small fly that died happy in my glass. Initial sulphur snatch in the nose, turning to a lightly toasted yeastines with a solid background of hops. Dissapointingly insipid in the mouth with traces of caramel and malt plus a low hop note. Slight roastiness in the finish with a gentle hop and yeast bitterness. Give me a Mahrs Ungespundet Hefetrub over this any day.

DanielBrown (3814) - Birmingham (via Leicester), West Midlands, ENGLAND - APR 12, 2004
Bottle from the Crierion, Leicester. Alarming red colour, but seemingly a lager - no head. Smells like blood orange. Taste is slightly less than I had anticipated. A thickish German pils taste, with extra metal and malt. A very lingering taste, thick, sharp and dryish. Not as different as I expected - just a souped up Pils really.

thegreenrooster (3210) - St.louis, Missouri, USA - APR 10, 2004
Pours a dark and hazy brown. No head at all. Flavor is very bready and the hops are a presence. I can get a lot of orange peal in this brew. Very nice and a different style.
