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."

Can, LCBO 8 Pack. Pours a very nice hazy golden yellow with an attractive creamy white head with great lacing. A few streaming bubbles are present as well. Very inviting fresh aroma - bread, biscuit, wet trees in a forest (I’m stretching, but that is what it smells like - so fresh). Taste - terrific. Surprising hops right up front, giving way to fruity malt, and an interesting spicy hop finish. Mouthfeel is very reminiscent of fresh Creemore lager, soft and actively carbonated. That finish is something else - now I’m getting honey and citrus to go with the spiciness. Wow, there is a ton of flavour here, what a great job Creemore (and thanks for leaving them alone Molson)! They knocked this one out of the park, not sure a lager could get any more flavourful.

One of my favourite beers in recent memory. Why? Cause its was so pleasantly balanced. It had nice spicy hops but not too much to make it just a sipping beer. It was light enough to be able to enjoy more than one at a time. If anyone has had the Tankhouse by Miss St. then I’d say its like a lighter less bitter version (and that’s not knocking the Tankhouse).

Draught at Victory Cafe and cans from the brewery. It has a rich copper hue with a hazy body, and a remarkably fresh and enticing aroma that holds notes of toasted grain, dried grass and juicy hops, along with a hint of yeast. The body is lightly carbonated, and while the flavour seems a bit muted at first, giving the beer a few minutes to warm allows it to open up considerably, revealing a perfect balance between sweet, caramelish malt and pleasantly bitter hops, with a delicate suggestion of lemon zest in the finish. The yeast is also noticeable, but not overpowering, it just adds a well integrated depth and richness to the flavour. An excellent beer all around, and one that I hope Creemore Springs brings back, as I couldn’t get enough it if for the few weeks it was available this past summer.

Canette de 473ml. Bière dorée-orangée, pas filtrée. Houblonnée à souhait, très agréable en bouche, mordante avec beaucoup de caractère.

UPDATED: JUN 25, 2011 Amber-gold pour with very satisfying head retention and some lace. Well-rounded, hoppy mouthfeel with an underlying bready taste makes this a very enjoyable beer for a hot summer night. Possibly my favorite from Creemore and I’m glad to see them bringing out interesting styles. Re-rate one year later: got a bunch of this on tap. It’s cloudy as hell. I love it. This is some fresh beer for sure. Lace and head are sticky and thick. Hop presence is alive and fruity with definite bubblegum and gummy bear auras. Hops are a key factor here. All-around this beer is fantastic. Dark honey/amber colour and bombastic taste make this a stellar release by Creemore. Hats off for sure.

473ml can, consumed 6 days after packaging. Poured a hazy orange-gold lager in the stein, Frothy 2 finger cap with good retention and glass- lacing properties. Pungent aroma of fresh bread and herbal-woody noble cones with a musty-earthy undertone. Sturdy malt spine, ample body, creamy mouth feel, round mellow character and tons of flavor. The front side of this beer assaults the senses with a big malt blast titrated by succulent herbal leafy hop balance, mid palate it mellows and the rounded aged character is evident, bready hoppy finish. A faithful interpretation of this German lager style. Extremely fresh, flavorful and mellow. I wish all premium craft lagers could satisfy this substantially with so much fresh flavor. I can see me going though my 4 cases rather fast. Sad that your average lager quaffer is unaware of how much flavor is removed by filtering.

MrManning (2009) - Hamilton, Ontario, CANADA - JUL 22, 2009
Can- Deep hazy gold with orangey hues. A rocky and sticky cap sits atop the liquid, and leaves nice lace. Yeasty, citric nose that leads to fresh and pungent hops, bread crust, perfume. Flavours are fresh and bright. Lots of citrus, bready malts, fresh green hops, markedly spicy, with a floral/herbal quality. Medium bodied, with a subdued sweet fruity finish, and a pleasantly astringent bitterness that lingers. Complex, rewarding, and very drinkable. Excellent.

1st off I would like to thank molson for leaving creemore alone and letting them creat some outstanding lagers. Slightly hazy amber pour, beautiful nose of soft bscuitymalts and some really nice zesty slightly citrucy hops. Wow this beer is so smooth and soft I could exult drink this all day! Outstanding!

473 mL can. Pours a nice orangey-gold, with a frothy white head. Sharp hop aroma, with a hint of flowers and citrus. Very hoppy, though also very smooth and mild. Doesn’t have the insane hop kick I was expecting, but the hops are certainly there and just counterbalanced by a smooth honey and citrus finish. Excellent balance found. Not an extreme beer, but has a great everyday beer quality to it.

Beer Snob (501) - Ontario, CANADA - MAY 17, 2010
Orangey with a bit of haze. Smells like springtime! Hint of citrus, touch of herbs. Light aroma overall. Absolutely delicious as well. More robust than a lager, yet more refreshing than most ales. Goes down really smooth, but leaves a lingering taste that fades beautifully. Really great stuff, perfect for summer.
