From the Wavemaker website:

Pouring a hazy golden yellow, this unfiltered, Franconian-style lager is very expressive while maintaining a very smooth, easy drinking finish. Plenty of fruity yeast esters present from a warmer-than-usual lager fermentation, finishing very crisp.

I admit I had no idea when this popped up. From looking it up, it seems to just be a very loosely defined style/naming convention adopted in the German countryside. I'm expecting something darker than a Kellerbier but lighter than a Dunkel or Marzen. I'm also expecting it to be unfiltered and hoppier than neighbouring styles. Anyone know more about this style than I do? I got all that from 5 minutes on Google.
seangm wrote: Fri Dec 02, 2022 10:44 am As far as Landbiers, I've had precisely one actual German landbier from Privatbrauerei Einsiedler. It was filtered and definitely more commercial, but right as you described between a kellerbier and dunkel with regards to malt. It was coppery in colour with a solid malty backbone and touch of fruitiness. Hop character was present, actually a bit earthy. It seems to be a rustic lager but open to interpretation, as some other commercial German landbiers are a lighter golden, looking closer to a kellerbier or even helles.

So I guess what I'm saying is, what to expect is a bit of a mystery lol

I havnt had it in probably 18 months or so…but it was pretty damn tasty when I grabbed a bunch of cans last. Easy drinking and satisfying. Probably the best beer I’ve had from Wavemaker.

There’s a good number of 3F Intens Rood in stores now, and it looks like pretty wide distribution.

Online pic and listing says "online exclusive" but it's not available online and is in 20 stores. Okay, thanks LCBO.

HAH, I noticed that. I think it WAS an online exclusive in the past, maybe they re-used the listing?

Not many stores have it, but those that do mostly have a lot. Peterborough, for example.

I picked up a couple of bottles of the 3F Intens Rood. Also noticed an Ontario classic back on the shelves (or perhaps i just haven't noticed it) in the form of Saint Andre Vienna Lager, though now called Bohemian Lager.

Didn't St Andre disappear for some time? Or am I misremembering? I recall it used to be on tap at C'est What years ago.

Lol I remember drinking it on tap there close to 20 years ago when dating my ex who lived at Church/Esplanade. It was my go-to before I even had a thought of what craft beer was.

And yes, it's only $2 for a tall boy. Picked up a couple for nostalgia's sake a week or two ago at the LCBO by Wilson/Dufferin. Cool is brewing it these days (not sure if they always did, but I don't believe so).

Oh, I love that too! We used to get LTM beers fairly regularly, but I can't recall the last time I saw one.

It holds up great over time too, I'll get a few of these!
