Impression: Finally an unfiltered Keller Märzen though to look at it, you could mistake it for a Weissbier. It’s quite effervescent and there’s some yeast in the otherwise malty nose. It’s balanced enough and quite quaffable at 5.6% . The underlying hops kick in as it warms and reveal what might be better described as a sublime Festbier. I’d take this over anything at Munich’s Oktoberfest.

Next beer or back to the beer list.
