Availability: Year-round

Notes/Commercial Description:
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.

Hazy copper with a rocky, coarse head. Nose is caramel, herbal hops and rough graininess. Dry and fairly bitter with lots of nuttiness and hint of anise. Raw toasted graininess and the bare hint of citrus round out the flavours. A bit of a slick body with a sharp carbonation. Fairly drinkable.

Creemore Springs is a microbrewery located in Creemore, Ontario, which opened for business in 1987.The brewery is known for avoiding the use of preservatives during its brewing process with no pasteurization afterwards. Water used in the production process comes exclusively from an artesian well which is trucked from the source to the brewery daily. Creemore Springs was acquired by Molson on April 22, 2005. In 2009, Creemore Springs applied for planning permission to expand its plant by 60% in order to triple their brewing capacity to 150,000 hectolitres per year, but as of March 2011 the plan was being opposed by some local residents who planned to take their case to the Ontario Municipal Board.

On this occasion we tried their Kellerbier in a 473 ml can. Kellerbier is 5.0% alcohol by volume and is brewed in small batches using a direct fired kettle, with German whole leaf hops added late in the process. Kellerbier poured a cloudy amber colour (it is an unfiltered beer) with just over one centimeter of off-white head that did not dissipate quickly. There was very little lacing down the glass. The best characteristic of this beer for me was the aroma, floral hops and yeast with a bit of spice...very nice. The mouth feel was neither thin nor creamy, with some tingling on the tongue from the carbonation. Kellerbier's taste was pretty much as advertised by the aroma, starting with the hops and a slightly yeasty flavour, finishing with a moderate, dry bitterness. I would certainly drink this beer again.

As a quick aside I love the brewery's motto: "Proudly 100 years behind the times". If only we could buy its Kellerbier at 100 year old prices!

M- Very good. Nice balance between creamy and carbonation

O- Pretty good. Appearance and mouth feel really bring this one up

Food Pairing

This nice little beer paired well with... cured meat and cheese.

Big off white head that seems to have a tint of yellow to it, recedes really slowly above a thick farmers honey golden copper colored beer.

Lightly sweet grain malt and light grasses in the aroma of the unfiltered Kellerbier.

Lighter sort of sweet malt grain taste with a touch of some bitterness probably from the hops coming through.

A lightly dryish aftertaste that harbors just a bit of the sweet tastes with it with this medium bodied offering.

This beer has some sweetness to it but not enough to be overbearing or unpleasant and even though this isn't my favorite style of beer this was quite drinkable.

Tasted at the Mondial de la Biere in Montreal:

Cloudy amber; ample head that leaves ring lace.

Earthy and malty aroma. Some farm to the nose.

Sweet berry-like malt up front. Good white pepper hop in the swallow. Complex full body with a low carbonation.

Serving type: on-tap

3.28/5  rDev -15.9%
look: 4 | smell: 2.75 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3 | overall: 3.25

Serving Type - 473ml can poured into stein.

Appearance - A very pretty Beer. Pours with 2 fingers of bright white head that fades pretty quickly, leaving behind a low to moderate amount of lacing. The beer itself is a cloudy golden orange colour. That doesn't do it justice, but it's really quite a unique colour.

Smell - Mostly bread and orange peel. Not a whole lot going on here.

Taste - Like many lagers, its quite bready. There is also some light orange peel, coriander and a faint grassy hop taste. Towards the finish there is a distinctive alcohol taste.

Mouthfeel - Nothing special really. Medium-high carbonation. Medium body.

Overall - 3.25/5 Sidenote: This was difficult to review as I've never encountered this style of beer. Would love to find more of the same though.
