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.

Slightly hazy, reddish brown, with little or no head. Nice hop nose with some fruit, peach and malt. Dry, light but dancing on the palate. Crisp but brief finish some lingering fruit. No bitterness but definatly some hop charachter. Great beer!

Falconseye8 (542) - Evans, Colorado, USA - JUL 12, 2004
Nice combination of Malt and Hops. Different from any other German beer I’ve had. A wee bit of lemon and you could have confused me into thinking this was a German Hefeweizen. Crisp, clean beginning, middle and end.

YourDarkLord (1800) - Urbana, Illinois, USA - JUL 12, 2004
Murky amber with a frail white head. malty and yeasty aroma. Thin bodied and lightly carbonated. Flavor was earthy but not in any sense appealing.

JoeM500 (1906) - Crown Point, Indiana, USA - JUN 29, 2004
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.

Terminus (3316) - Las Cruces, New Mexico, USA - JUN 26, 2004
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.

dirtymike (2016) - Manchester, New Hampshire, USA - JUN 12, 2004
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.
