Light hazy amber colour with a small off white head. Mlaty light spicy aroma with a faint sweetness. Dusty flavor with a spicy / yeasty note, very dry finish. Scubatrip (610) - Annandale, Virginia, USA - JUL 6, 2005
Out of the bottle, a nice reddish color. Malty aroma. Slight taste of spices, a little bitter. BuckNaked (1230) - Ann Arbor, Michigan, USA - JUL 6, 2005
Bottle: Copperish amber, mostly clear, small light beige head that lasts for a little bit with some good lacing. Aroma: medium hops (though the hops seem to be low alpha acid hops), caramel, malty sweet syrup, nuts, light yeasty wood, and a hint of very sticky sweet earth. Taste is lightly spicy hops immediately, then caramel, earthy sweet malt, sweet lager yeast, light nuts and sugar. There’s an almost acidic, though maybe more bitter feeling in the mouth while drinking this beer, which is quite refreshing. Medium bodied, moderate-lively carbonation, crisp & light mouthfeel. jimmack (1223) - Nutley, New Jersey, USA - JUL 2, 2005
500ml bottle. Hazy amber color with a small white head that quickly dissipated.
Mild aroma of hops, caramel and nuts reminds me of a brown ale. Flavor was drier than expected, with the hops in front and some caramel malt in the background. Quite enjoyable, my first Keller. frankenkitty (2012) - Oak Lawn, Illinois, USA - JUL 1, 2005
A small and frothy head over a coppery-amber body. No visualization of "cloudiness". Decidedly malty aromas were dirty-caramel with an underscore of lemon hops. I’m hard-pressed to describe the flavor in words... experience it for yoursellf... bittersweet/sour & flat with earthiness. Palate was light-to-medium bodied with a dry-creaminess, although a little on the thin side. If others of this style are similar, I’m anxious to sample.

River-sedimented and red-orange with a watery head that settled thin. There’s a sugary-caramel aroma. Tart alcohol flavors rule the day, but settle as you go. Cooked sugars, not unlike a Belgian strong ale. fiulijn (20427) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - JUN 12, 2005
UPDATED: JUN 21, 2011 2011-02-16, bottle from Getränkemarkt Grimm Schweinfurt (probably 6 months old), 5-4-6-2-11=28pivo (2685) - GERMANY - JUN 11, 2005
Hazy copper color; generous head. Light malt aroma, very light vegetables too. Some malt flavor, dry but with a round mouthfeel, dry caramel too; the malt is more present than in the average bottled beer, but the dryness turns into a strange metallic feeling in the end; low carbonation, as promised; correct bitterness, and also the feeling of heavily refined sugar in the palate. Easy.

Amber color; creamy head, hazy, persistent. The aroma, grassy, with brewers malt, is inviting. The mouthfeel is quite dry, there is some cereals flavor, strong bitterness, and an ashy final, therefore not as interesting as expected in the beginning. Beyond everything, I really miss an aromatic Continental hop here...

Hazy amber color, thin creamy head. Light aroma of hop. Some malt; sweet caramel taste, strong bitterness. Quite good.
Fresh hop and grassy nose, hazy pale copper color, low frothy head. Thin caramelly malt that turns quickly to a high res hop bitter - nice! Watery body but kinda fun, so overall enjoyable. YogiBeera (2569) - New Jersey, USA - MAY 29, 2005
Murky orange color, small layer of a head. Malty and actually a very bready nose with some banana hints. Hoppy - long lasting and medium intense. Kicks on the back of the roof. Nice one! Ray1975 (251) - Broken Arrow, Oklahoma, USA - MAY 23, 2005
Poured a cloudy amber color with very little head. Aroma is light hops, nutty and a bit of malt. Flavor is malty with a bit of hops and some must... Thin mouthfeel with little carbonation.
