cmacklin (1014) - Lethbridge, Alberta, CANADA - APR 24, 2016
341ml bottle. (6% ABV) Pours a hazy copper with a large, frothy, long lasting, off-white head that laces nicely. Sweet aroma of caramel malt, grain and mild fruit. Sweet flavour of caramel malt, grain, grass and a hint of stone fruit with a mildly bitter, hoppy, metallic finish. Light body with an oily texture and soft carbonation. Ok.

Pretty good Keller - because it is the first I have tried. Has some nice sharp hoppiness with some bitter malts.

33 cl bottle, Calgary, AB, Canada via coop. Slightly hazy amber. Frothy head. Sweet yeasty aroma. Brown sugar and metal flavour. Sharpness from the hops. Long tingling metal finish. For the price Creemore Keller is much better.

herrbrown1974 (427) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - MAY 25, 2014
On tap at the brewery. Orange reddish tint, darker than most kellers. Thick tan head. Low carbonation. It was pretty much true to style. Bitter fruit maltiness, a little chaulky in the mouthfeel. Tannic and mildly bitter. Drinkable but otherwise not exceptional.

mcberko (16053) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - MAY 18, 2014
On tap at Wild Rose, pours a hazy orange with a small white head. Aroma brings out very mild herbal notes and subtle toasted malt. Flavour is likewise very subtle, almost nonexistent, with light toasted notes and herbal notes. Drinkable enough, but no body or character. Very boring stuff.

DuffMan (9920) - the land of bitumen, beef & beer, Alberta, CANADA - SEP 9, 2013
Bottle, shared with my wife. Medium amer with rich golden highlights and a chalky long-lasting head. Toasty caramel malts, slightly chewy, with a tangy hoppy finish. Very nice considering I was expecting a sweet grainy mess. Yes very nice for the style.

BillKismet (3954) - Seattle, Washington, USA - JUL 19, 2013
UPDATED: AUG 20, 2013 A beautiful pour. Stately red-orange with puffs of carbonation emanating off the bottom of the glass, and blowing a beige foam cover. Tightly wound aroma with nuances of melanoidin and cider with fruitiness pinched off by a note of pepper spice. The body tastes a bit green, and could perhaps benefit from 3-6 months more aging. Tannins are present, and although not badly out of balance, they are more distracting than I would desire. Otherwise, this is a nicely balanced brew, crisp, straightforward, yet with enough complexity and mystery to keep it interesting. Slightly nutty and tannic finish.

pintbypint (3438) - Edmonton, Alberta, CANADA - MAY 23, 2013
On tap at Underground. Pours orangey gold with haze. Good looking white cap, nice creaminess. Good streaky and clingy foam. Nose is of mild grains - rather weak aromatics. Taste has a light toasty malt note, grassy hops. End has a bit of grassy bitterness. The body is light, smooth off the tap, carbonation is pretty tight. Not feeling bock exactly, but enjoyable and approachable anyway, i just wish this beer had been more aromatic.

Pours a cloudy copper with big soapy off white head that lasts and leaves great lace. Aroma is cereal, grassy, herbal, spicy yeast, mildly fruity and a bit of hay mixed in there. Flavour is grassy, mild crisp bitterness, cereal, and a spicy yeasty touch that mixes well with the bitterness. Refreshingly session-able.
