Very refreshing. Strong mango aroma (remarkable, really!). Flavour is peach, mango, and citrus... exotic and impressive. Hops are strong, bitter and obvious. Carbonation is very noticeable. A bit of a sweet corn flavour underlines the whole thing - I usually dislike that, but the fruitiness and uniqueness of this beer make it its own. Interesting and worth trying for sure.

Really crisp lager with lots of hops and some spice. Extra refreshing, smooth, and very drinkable. Not huge flavour but it’s real good for what it is.

Poured from can. Orange copper colour. Hazy that poured wonderful with decent head. Very inviting!! Hops aroma with some citrus. Very unique. Full flavor with lots of hops and can still taste a bit of the citrus. Refreshing and great for summer!!

Orangey with a bit of haze. Smells like springtime! Hint of citrus, touch of herbs. Light aroma overall. Absolutely delicious as well. More robust than a lager, yet more refreshing than most ales. Goes down really smooth, but leaves a lingering taste that fades beautifully.
Really great stuff, perfect for summer.

473ml can from LCBO (Dundas/Mavis)
This is a nice beer by Creemore. Unlike most people, I don’t get a whole lot of citrus from it but predominantly HOPS HOPS and more HOPS. Appearance is a very pretty clouded amber color, pours with a thick foamy head that lasts for a little while. Some moderate lacing in the glass. Would definitely buy this again, missed it last season and am glad to have snagged a few cans this time around.

4.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Draught at Victory Cafe and cans from the brewery. It has a rich copper hue with a hazy body, and a remarkably fresh and enticing aroma that holds notes of toasted grain, dried grass and juicy hops, along with a hint of yeast. The body is lightly carbonated, and while the flavour seems a bit muted at first, giving the beer a few minutes to warm allows it to open up considerably, revealing a perfect balance between sweet, caramelish malt and pleasantly bitter hops, with a delicate suggestion of lemon zest in the finish. The yeast is also noticeable, but not overpowering, it just adds a well integrated depth and richness to the flavour. An excellent beer all around, and one that I hope Creemore Springs brings back, as I couldn’t get enough it if for the few weeks it was available this past summer.

Can [473ml]. Pours a slightly hazy golden-amber with an average size lasting foamy white head. Nice aroma of biscuity malt, citrus fruit, floral hops, some sweetness and yeast. Great refreshing flavour of biscuity malt, a surprising amount of floral hops (in a good way!), fruit (citrus and peach), a hint of spices and a nice, dry bitter finish. Medium bodied, almost creamy mouthfeel. Not only is this the best Creemore beer, it’s one of the best beers made in Ontario -- Please Creemore, make this again!

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
16 oz can. Pours a clear dark gold body with a one finger frothy white head that left some patchy lacing. Lightly toasty and bready malt with just a light floral hoppiness, maybe a touch of yeast. Pretty simple and straightforward, but there’s a bit of softness on the finish that may be from the yeast. A little toasty with crusty bready malt, very light bitterness on the finish. Lighter bodied with a nice almost creamy softness and light carbonation. Not bad, but certainly no reason to seek it out other than for the style. Toward the bottom of the style for me.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Can: Poured a bright lightly hazy copper color lager with a large foamy head with average retention and some lacing. Aroma of dry caramel malt with floral undertones and some clean crisp hops. Taste is a well balanced mix between some floral malt with notes dry caramel and a light green hoppy finish. Body was quite full with good carbonation. Very well done though additional hops would have benefited this beer as well as slightly less filtration.
