KEO Lager has been produced on the island since 1951. This clear, gold lager has a two-finger head of white small bubbles. The unpasteurized brew smells weakly of both malt and hops, but the taste is very good. Smooth and malty, I can imagine drinking this beer sitting on a cliff patio at some restaurant on the Med's coast - and will one day. Although bottled and imported, this brew tasted like it was bottled the same day I sampled it. It was crisp and refreshing with notes of bitterness and heavy carbonation.
