BEER INFO

Brewed by:
Creemore Springs Brewery Limited
Ontario, Canada

Style: Kellerbier / Zwickelbier

Alcohol by volume (ABV): 5.00%

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.

Pours a beige, hazy body, with a good amount of fluffy and creamy off-white head at the top. The scent is fairly light, with some noble hops and faint maltiness coming through. The taste has distinctly rich and spicy malts throughout it, with a pop of bitterness at the back of the palate from the hops. The feel is really smooth, with spot on carbonation levels. Might be too easy to drink...

Sharp almost sour mouthfeel. Nice bit of funk here.

clear golden amber colour with a couple inches of head that fizzes away.

sweet malts on the nose. fresh whole grain bread. grapes, light fruit.

malts at the front with the slight sweetness and green apple. in the middle it gains more depth with rye bread and grains. finish comes in with surprising hopy bitterness that was on the nose. Finish is nice and long with the malts coming through again. Warm alcohol on the back of the throat.

Body feels very light and smooth at first but changes after a few seconds in the mouth to gain body.

Overall pretty impressed. Very nice balance between malts and hops with nice grainy and fruit flavours. Drinks easy but plenty to enjoy in each sip. Worth seeking out if you enjoy a crisp balanced brew with enough complexity to hold your attention!

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

s: grass, apple, leafy-floral hops and hints of spices

t: really clean caramel-like malt flavours, followed by a prominent floral-spicy hop presence. smallest hints of lemony citrus fruits. finishes slightly sour with subtle malty-spicy flavours. really pleasant stuff

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!
