Drink: Berthold Keller Premium Lager

Size: 500 mL tallboy
A 500 mL European lager for $2 sounds too good to be true, but Keller proves the Hoochsavvy maxim: cost doesn’t connote quality.
Opening with faint, sour malt on the nose, it is amber on the pour and has ample carbonation to generate a healthy head (the affixed, delayed photo notwithstanding).
Sitting slightly maltier than more premium lagers (think Corona, Stella Artois, Tuborg Gold), it is nonetheless light and has a clean finish with only a bit of film left on the palate.
Replace your Canadian/Brava/Coors-drinking buddies’ brews with this, and become fearless in beer pong; for the older at heart, pair with fish and chips, or as a great hot tub beer.
Because of its low cost and easy drinkability, this beer is an official Hoochsavvy POWER PERFORMER!
