Green Man Keller (500ml Bottle)
Keller is a very rare style in New Zealand. It is a lusciously rich Lager which is really quite simple to make because it is what we don?t do that makes it so full of flavour. We don?t filter it and we leave it for up to two months before bottling. A Keller beer will often appear cloudy due to the sediment (which is full of organic vitamins). Pour this beer straight from the fridge, cold from the bottle into a large glass. SILVER MEDAL winner at the NZ International Beer Awards in June 2008.
This rare German beer style dates back to Medieval times and is a naturally cloudy, unfiltered and unpasteurised lager. It is full of vitamins and overflowing with flavour.
Three related, minor, lager styles most common in Franconia. Essentially, these are hoppier versions of a helles, served with natural carbonation and unfiltered - they are the lager worlds answer to real ale. Kellerbier will on average be hoppier than zwickelbier. There is also Landbier, which is more malt-accented, may be filtered, but is similarly lacking in carbonation. Gravity is standard, hop rates ranging from 22-40 IBUs, the colour from pale to reddish-amber and the palate should be balanced with a hop accent.
