3.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Can from brewery” pours a clear lush deep copper with red highlights. A decent sticky 2 finger cap and moderate carbonation. Pungent aroma of toasty-sweet malts over the earthy notes of noble hops clean malty nose to it. Flavour is intense but on target for the Altbier style – big chewy toasty bready malts in front in remarkable balance with the woody/herbal noble hop bite, clean toasty-nutty finish with increasing bittering to a beautiful well balanced finale and light hop aftertaste. A flavourful, robust, easy drinking German amber ale, hard to fault that. This is probably the best commercial Altbier in Canada as good or better than German commercial Alts. Another solid offering from Creemore who keep me coming back.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Pours deep red amber with a nice pillowy off white sudsy head. I’d give it a 5 for appearance... but it’s filtered. Nose of caramelized bread pans... yeast...even a little whiff of smoke and mild berry. Initially came across as a bit sweet, but it’s passable. Clean bready malts, with hints of smoke, cocoa, dried cherry, and some minerals. Hops are quite mild. Earth and tea tannins. Cut dried grass. It’s an altbier but it doesn’t taste like they would make it in the past. Too refined. It’s good though.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
341ml bottle stolen from my step-dad (thanks!) Pour is mahogany. Caramel, roasted grain and nuts, hay, mineral water. There's a faint spicy hop presence, a crisp, bitter finish, but I give this a passing grade mostly for being unremarkably drinkable. I'm with Tiki below: I don't mind these guys, but their product line could use some diversity.

3.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 15/20
Olfactif discret composé de noisettes, de grains, d’une touche de beurre et d’herbes fraiches. De couleur ambrée très foncée, presque brune, elle développe une mousse épaisse, dense et persistante. En entrée de bouche, les noisettes dominent, laissant par la suite l’effervescence s’activer et s’étaler jusqu’à la finale d’intenses notes herbacées aux tons de persil et d’herbes amères. Équilibrée et délicate, cette bière est tout à fait dans le style.. Une vrai bière de soif.

Another sad visit to my local LCBO & the only thing I haven’t tried is this CreeMolsonCoors offering. It’s decent & nice -- like a visit to granny’s house! -- & i like it fine enough: sparkling mouthfeel & crisp finish make this enjoyable. Still, im not a big fan of their heavy spring water & honestly don’t find a lot of nuance & diversity in their stable.

Another quality brew form one of the premier Craft Brewers in Canada (IMHO). Different can then what is pictured, but I believe it is the same brew.
Drank directly from the tall can.
Smells a little too hoppy. A little off putting
Pours a caramel colour.
Taste is similar to Creemore Kellerbier, but with more of a hop taste. It is present, and just at the point that it is offensive. Small aftertaste
Good amount of carbonation
Overall I was very impressed with this brew. I will be puchasing again, but not before the Kellerbier or the Urbock.

Just another solid beer from this great brewery that has to get tagged as a major due to ownership. Creemore’s beers share nothing with their "parents"
Altbier is a great fall beer tasty full and rich. Not a beer for a hot day although that would still be OK.
A darker ale with some residual hoppiness. Love it

473ml tallboy. Poured a generous amount of creamy off-white head. Good lacing and retention. Has a dark coppery appearance. Aromas of wheats and grains are there, not too offensive. Flavours are all over, good balance of hops and malts, nutty, a bit yeasty. Some bitterness on the palate. Not bad.
