COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
"Since the middle ages the folks in rural Germany have enjoyed a fresh locally brewed beer, straight from the brewer’s cellars known as "Kellerbier". Kellerbiers are unfiltered so the beer is naturally cloudy, distinctly flavourful and refreshing. We brew our kellerbier in small batches using our direct fired kettle. Special German whole-leaf hops are added late in the brewing process, producing a beer that is wonderfully aromatic with a hint of citrus and spice on the palate."

TheJester (1779) - Peterborough, Ontario, CANADA - AUG 21, 2009
473 mL can. Looks like regular Creemore, only cloudy. Great lacing, as with the original. By the end of the glass, there was some grainy sediment in the bottom. Grainy/earthy/herbal aroma. Flavour has grainy malt, spiciness, a little thin caramel, and a slight bitterness. Quite full and flavourful for a lager. Another solid beer from Creemore.

Rastacouere (6119) - Montreal, Quebec, CANADA - AUG 19, 2009
Fizzy dark golden bordering on light orange. A small slice of white foam stays atop it all and does not last much despite the active bubbling. Grassy, softly earthy and lemony nose shows more hop character than anticipated. Leafy and fruity on the palate, it’s almost juicy in terms of flavours, yet bright and crisp in terms of carbonation. Not so yeasty, farmy, floral, pils malt focused like top German examples, but fresh and bright nonetheless, leaning more towards the tea-like/lemonade/peach nectar/apricot juice side of things, but refreshing and hugely drinkable. I’d kinda stopped following Creemore Springs since a few years, but this is a most honourable new product. Lingering fruity, citrusy and herbal bitterness

italarican (1470) - Winston-Salem, North Carolina, USA - AUG 13, 2009
Thanks to the Queens RB crew! Pours a transparent orange with no head. Yeasty aroma with some mandarin oranges and grains. A bit pungent. Flavors of peach, lemon, wheat, and hops. The hoppy finish is a bit stale and flat. The peach was a nice surprise.

jercraigs (7456) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - AUG 5, 2009
2009-07-31. Golden body with a foamy white head. Lightly yeasty aroma, bit floral, light zesty citrus. Flavour has a light bitternes, zippy floral hops, muted pale malt base. (6+) Average palate. Solid example of the style, quaffable, but not really my cup of tea. Can from LCBO

Can at BCTC 2009: Golden pour with a white film of head. Biscuity malt nose with some peppery noble hop character. Light body with a crisp dry flavor- biscuity and softly sweet malt character with a balancing noble hop presence. A very nice and German feeling lager.

UPDATED: MAY 8, 2010 473mL can shared by matt7215 at our casual Saturday afternoon mini-tasting. Thanks Matt. Sampled side-by-side with Trois Mousquetaires Kellerbier. This one pours an only slightly hazy orange with a small white head. Where’s all my sediment? The aroma is definitely akin to everything I expect from Creemore. Corn, grain husks, sweet malts, but with a lot of citrus, tangerine, and a touch of dry hoppy yeastyness. Flavour is very smooth, mild carbonation which is good. Very sweet upfront, all the usual Creemore flavours but with some dry yeast and minor hop elements chiming in. Very simple actually, qutie drinkable though even as a fan of good lagers I don’t completely comprehend the hype around this one. That said, I’d still buy it semi-regularly if possible, and I’m happy to see a more obscure style being produced in Ontario. Filter it even less and I’d like it a lot more. EDIT: 2010 version is actually much better. Same elements but richer and better done. More noticable hop activity in the aroma and flavour, this tweaked version is one of the best things being done in this province IMHO.
