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.

duff (5484) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - OCT 24, 2004
Cask@JDWetherspoons, Holborn, London. Cask conditioned exclusively for JDW Oktoberfest. Cask lagers i’ve decided are a good idea! Dry bready start. Apples and pears. Wholemeal bread. Grassy and bitter, slightly herbal/grassy hops in the finish. Dry very more-ish finish. This is really tasty stuff.

haddonsman (1234) - Derby, Derbyshire, ENGLAND - OCT 24, 2004
Cask at Standngn Order, Derby, JDW Ocktoberfest. My first Kellerbeir as well and it’s a great introduction. Hazy gold (love how the pump clip warned you it’s supposed to be hazy), had a fruity maltiness that I wasn’t expecting, crisp hops developed towards the finish, glad I tried it.

chriso (7513) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - OCT 20, 2004
Amber colour. Faint grassy hop aroma. Marked tangy and spicy hop favour. Just a touch of underlying malt. Fresh and clean. mellow finish. Quite nice. Cask (handpump) at Lord Moon of the Mall (JDW), Whitehall, London.

DrGonzo (625) - Somerville, Massachusetts, USA - OCT 19, 2004
Pours a rusty copper color with minimal head. Beautiful aroma featuring layers of hops, fruit. Flavor is on the sweet side, oily feel, with a sour bitterness and bite at times. Overall, enjoyable.

Joeh (2049) - Buckinghamshire, ENGLAND - OCT 13, 2004
Cask conditioned @ Oktoberfest, JD Wetherspoons, High Wycombe. When hand pumped out of the cask this beer looks very much like a bitter, and could probably pass for one. However this is a fairly typical kellerbier, malty, fairly yeasty. Notes of caramel. Nice.

whaleman (2178) - North Wales, Pennsylvania, USA - OCT 12, 2004
Hazy golden-copper body with a dense load of fine suspended yeast and a loose soapy white head. Buttery, nutty malt nose with a light floral hop aroma and notes of yeasty bread dough. Flavor is fruity and worty with a tangy zing and delicate bittering hops. This beer is considerably maltier than expected. A prominent tea element builds up and detracts.

Cornfield (5570) - Oak Forest, Illinois, USA - OCT 11, 2004
UPDATED: AUG 20, 2005 Poured a hazy, medium brown color with almost no head. Fruits & malts in the aroma. Smoooth mouthfeel with sweet malt tastes and hints of dried fruits. Likeable dry, bitter finish. Refreshing brew.

DeepBlack (386) - Derby, Derbyshire, ENGLAND - OCT 8, 2004
From the Babington Octoberfest at the Wetherspoons in Derby on draught. Light brown European beer served from the Cast in the British style. Fruity & dryish tasting this had a distinct Lager smell to it. And you could defiantly taste the alcohol in the beer (though it’s not all that strong) Served a bit to cold too

JonMoore (2052) - Loughborough, Leicestershire, ENGLAND - OCT 7, 2004
Bottle from Beers of Europe. My first Kellerbier. Hazy amber colour with a thin off-white head. Aroma is fruity, hoppy and with some background malts. Taste is hoppy, malty, fruity and some caramel. Dryish with a long bitter finish. Low carbonation, smooth and very drinkable. Great creamy mouthfeel. This is impressive; delicious.
