The one thing I hear mentioned a lot in craft beer circles is that Creemore Springs has maintained there high quality even after being purchased by Molson.
Their Kellerbier is certainly a bit different than the safety net Molson generally likes to stay in. For one thing it is unfiltered, meaning it will be cloudy and could have some sediment in it. Secondly, it has far more flavour than a standard lager.
From what I can find, a Kellerbier can be either top or bottom fermented which is kind of strange as those would create very different flavours and mouth feels, making me wonder why they aren’t two different types.
This specific variant is bottom fermented for sure.
The glass is my Old Tomorrow glass.
You can purchase Kellerbier at the LCBO for $2.90 a can and it comes in at 5% ABV.
Appearance: Unfiltered, thick white head. Light orange colour.
Aroma: Orange peel and a soft spiciness. Unbaked bread dough.
Taste: More of that orange peel but way less bitter. Some soft pepper notes. Super light mouth feel.
Aftertaste: A strange citrus bitterness.
Overall: Somewhat unique and great for the summer.
