Beer added by: Sammy on 06-23-2009

Kellerbier is an unfiltered, medieval German beer known for its naturally cloudy appearance. Served straight from the brewmaster’s cellar, it was a true honour for special guests visiting a brewery to be offered a taste. These days we happily make it available to one and all. Our Kellerbier is wonderfully aromatic with a hint of citrus and spice imparted by German whole leaf hops. Not too many breweries make Kellerbier, but then, we've always done things a little differently.

A- Definitely what it should look like....that being cloudy and deep gold in color, with orange and red hues.....great amounts of suspended yeast contained in this one! The head is modest and dissipates quickly, which is what it should be. What remains is a large, singular and thin patch that hovers right in the middle of the liquid that centers some small lumbering columns of fizz rising up. Lacing is underwhelming too, with the little bit of patchwork on the side of my glass slipping back into the brew with fury! Decent looking enough overall.

S- Well balanced aromas of sweet malts and yeasty biscuit defining the general smell with the finish of fresh leafy hop bitterness that hits my nasal cavity with a ting. There is a buttercrust bread quality that keeps everything very smooth and mild overall, however, the aromas are clearly defined.

T- This is a very flavorful brew overall! The flavors follow the aromas closely in terms of balance......sweet caramel like malt is the foremost flavor, with hints of almond nuttiness, dry yeasty biscuit and Earthy and cleansing, albeit very mild, woodiness. The finish is clean yet distinct with subdued but noticeable leafy hop presence. There is a lingering dark, almost burnt toffee flavor that is quite enjoyable on the palate for several minutes.

M/O- This is a highly enjoyable beer that I have no problems with as a session brew, and/or this would make a very well rounded mealtime beverage. I find it to be medium, heading towards full bodied and with pleasant fine carbonation that lasts throughout the taste, helping to burst the overall flavors onto the palate. It certainly has a nice freshness to it that, as the definition of this style suggests, should be there. If this was available to me at the stores, I'd most certainly buy this on a regular basis. Great job Creemore!

Poured from can. Some citrus hops aroma. Cloudy amber appearance with white head. Light bitter taste. Light body, oily texture, average carbonation. Overall a very nice and refreshing brew.

look: 3.25 | smell: 2.75 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.75

appearance:
pours and orangey haze, one finger head, didnt expect a foamy mountain or anything, given that the style is more suited to a short head, obviously unfiltered, pretty cloudy,
orangey , almost golden brown.

smell:
very faint. doesnt have a nose to speak of really, but no nose is better than a foul one.
slight hint of grain, but it dissipates much like the head, very quickly.

taste:
this is where it gets interesting, its sharp, and malty, not bitter what so ever
until the after taste , which is nice and bitter, and short enough to keep me wanting it.
has a hint of vegetable, maybe carrot, but not over powering, very tastey.
not over stated in any way.

mouth:
sharp, as the taste, but not overly so. very lightly carbbed, which is unexpected.
no rising bubbles or anything.. very light. very drinkable.

overall:
me and the unfiltered beer have a mixed history, i dislike alot of beers in this style , but i respect creemore, and have greatly enjoyed their other offerings. I purchased a sampler type box of three sorts of creemore, this is the only i havent tried and Iam already a big fan of the pilsner , and the pretty average lager didnt leave any lasting impressions, but i recall it being quaffable, and not at all off putting, just lacking charectar maybe.. anyway, not sure if they sell this keller seperate from the sampler, as I've never seen it. but it was the deciding factor for me, creemore is a great brewer, my only complaint is that its slightly "simple". the pilsner is the best of the offerings, but given a couple of others to experiment with, my thoughts may change in this. this keller is great, and though Im new to the style, I like it alot.

473 ml can purchased from LCBO for $2.80 CDN. Been looking for this awhile every since I had the hacker-pschorr kellerbier, and enjoyed greatly. Served well chilled into pint glass.

Appearance - bright clear orange hued beer. Significant amount of visible bubbles. Wonderous frothy 2 finger head with good retention time and tons of sticky lacing. Really attractive.

Smell - earthy aroma with a coarse grain smell. Pleasant and slightly dank but like with my other limited experience with this style of beer, hard to nail down aromas.

Taste - earthy flavour, some some slightly sweet melon-esque flavour. Peppery on the aftertaste.

Mouthfeel - smooth feel and moderately dry finish, but just coarse enough to give it a substantial presence. Medium - low carbonation.

Overall - a really nice beer in the style that is bright and lively. Good full flavour and well rounded. A repeat purchase.
