3.3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
[Cask at Wetherspoons] Deep amber colour with moderate but dissipating head. Aroma is caramel and grain followed by floral and slightly fruity hoppy notes. There is also a slightly buttery note which isn’t entirely pleasant. Fairly full-bodied and malty on the palate with more caramel and a dry finish. I would have preferred this beer if it had been more hoppy and slightly cleaner (without the buttery note); all the same, not a bad beer and in excellent condition for a Wetherspoons.

3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
500ml bottle poured in a mug.
A: Pours an reddish amber color. Bit cloudy. Head is white, small and bubbled when poured. Retention is not bad with some nice lacings left
S: Dominated by caramel malts and bread. Yeasts and grassy/earthy hops
T: Follows the nose. Caramel malts, bread, yeasts and hops. Reminds an English bitter or even an APA. Dry on taste with a nice flowery hoppy bitterness
M: Extremely light body. Medium fizzy carbonation. Moderate bitter aftertaste
O: The first Keller I’ve ever had and it was quite a surprise. I was not expecting such a light bodied and, at the same time, quite hoppy beer from Germany. Recommended
