Creemore Springs Kellerbier

This lager is advertised as being unfiltered and generously hopped. “Kellerbier” refers to a method where German beer was brewed straight in a brewmaster’s cellar using aromatic hops often used late in the brewing process. It is a type of cask beer.

Because Creemore’s kellerbier is unfiltered, as per the tradition of a kellerbier, the head is very thick and off-white. The body is reddish amber and opaque, similar to many wheat ales. The aroma is a little grassy, but a little sour. It’s the only turn off here for myself. The flavour is hoppy with spice and citrus notes to it. The finish is very spicy and hoppy, but just below the point where one would say the kick is too bitter. An excellent new choice available at your LCBO. According to the Beer Store’s website it is not yet available there. To read more about kellerbier, you can go to this article from the German Beer Institute.
