Green Man Keller

Green Man Keller 4.8%

Poured from a 500ml bottle into a glass mug.

Note before review: Keller is, for a strikingly simple style of beer, a style I have never tried and rarely see. Keller is simply an unfiltered lager.

Beer pours a hazy gold with a thin white head that quickly dissolves to nothing. Aroma is quite complex with notes of sweet fruit like bananas and apricots, lemon and fresh cut grass, and sourdough yeast (especially after I emptied the bottle into the glass). The taste is mild, with a gentle citrusy bitterness balanced by a mild sweetness. Biscuity and yeasty around the edges (again, especially after I emptied the bottle). Body is on the lighter side with very gentle carbonation. A surprisingly clean finish for a beer with so little carbonation. All and all, a nice drinkable lager. Flavorful without overwhelming the palate, light but not watery, and clean on the finish.
