Boshkung Brewing Co (Minden Hills ON) North Country Kellerbier 5%

OO Grade: B-

Almost too honest backcountry.

Surprising to see a kellerbier than clear and pale, which can make someone frown at having something olfactory ethereal.  Not totally the case, some leafy German hops make the barley disappear, with only a very fine wet autumn leaves reach the inner nose.  Fortunately, the intensity is cranked up once the taste spuds are hit with the same hops almost becoming dusty, counterbalanced by a milky mouthfeel.  For those who relates NorthCountry with direct, too honest people, the name is wisely chosen.
