I've been looking a smaller keg for a while but after some mixed reviews from other 1.75gl brands of kegs, I still hadn't gotten one. I knew if this one was rather crappy, that the customer service here would take care of me, so I figured I might as well get one.
The keg lid seals easily with no need pressurize while closing the lid. I was afraid of this problem as some of the other brands have had this issue.
The welding was great. No burs, no sharp edges to slice open my arm during cleaning. It was completely smooth inside which helps tremendously with sanitation. Overall construction of this keg is great and I have zero complaints so far.
I highly recommend this keg for small batch brewers, high abv beers, or a very easy portable keg system. One side note is that the posts are the smaller size of socket for ball lock kegs, so if you only have the socket for the bigger ball lock kegs, you'll have to get another one. Sure you can use a wrench, but it's kinda difficult on these rubber handle style kegs.
