Notes & Commercial Description:
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.

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.

473ml can into nonic. packaged on april 22, 2014. enjoyed on june 1, 2014

a: hazy golden orange with three fingers of quickly-diminishing head from an aggressive pour

s: almost no aroma? i'm just getting hints of grass, yeast, and floral hops

t: that's more like it. really clean malt flavours, with some mild leafy bitterness (almost like an iced tea), yeast, and slight lemon as well. finishes sour with subtle apple flavours. really pleasant stuff

m: medium body, medium carbonation

o: a clean-drinking, easy-going beer. extremely lacking in the aroma department but it tastes great
