3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
473 ml can. Pours a dark gold/light amber with a large pillowy white head. Aromas are acidic woody malts, a little bit of dank basement. Tastes are dry tinny malt, a touch of alcohol, maybe some bitter nuttiness. Dry and crisp on the palate, strong carbonation and a medium dry/bitter finish.

One of the reviews below uses the adjective muted and I fully agree. This beer could be excellent if the existing flavours were amped up - donít change them, just give us more, more of the same malt, more of the same hops. Considering that it is marketed as an alt and a collaboration, I am surprised at the relative restraint of the palate even as compared to Creemore Lager itself. A missed opportunity, in my opinion.

Dark amber pour. Nice beige foam nose is faint but malty sweet. Flavour has a touch if bitterness but not much. Ok beer

1.6 AROMA 2/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 6/20
Brown with a white, lacy, thin disappearing head. Smells of caramel, sulfar, dirty socks and earth. Medium oily body with medium carbonation. Tastes like club soda, corn, caramel, malt, and a bad chemical finish. Blah

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Rating #895 - January 9, 2014 - 1oz. Sample from GranvilleMolsonCoors Rep.Pours golden amber color with a frothy white head . Nose is barnyard grasses, earth. Earthy spicy hop character dominated by an old-style malt forward beer. Medium carbonation. Taste is a hint of toffee, caramel with dominant maltiness, mild grassiness. Not as good as DDCís altbier but not far off. Would love to experience a German original in the style, not just well-made (to my young mind) Canadian copycats.

Tall can. Pours clear amber, off-white head. Nose is noble hops, cracker and pils malt, caramel. Flavour is crackery/biscuity, sulphur, mineral water, some bitterness in the finish. Alright, with a surprising similarity to their regular lager.

I had 2 cans. Both were far too metallic. Iím giving it a little slack assuming it was related to the batch. Will re-rate when Iím confident the supply is from a different brew.

473ml can from the LCBO. Pours a clear copper with a generous beige head. Nose is muted cereal and malts with caramel and nuts. Lots going on but all quite muted. Sweet with hint of bitterness. Medium body with lively carbonation and rather short finish.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Pours a deep rust red, with a huge frothy head. Aroma includes graham crackers, and notes of pine, dough, and yeasty. Tasting notes include light malts, toffee, and a piney bitter finish. This is a decent beer, however the palate is a little week. Although enjoyable, it is a weak example of the style.
