473 ml can from LCBO (last one!), served cold in a tulip glass.
App.: Hazy dirty amber with a large light tan froth.

Palate: Medium body and carbonation.
Flav.: Lots of apricot/peach, biscuity malts to a lesser extent, some of the the Saaz hops, though not much, a little wet hay and a bit of black tea; dry with fair bitterness and a pleasant lightly-roasted malt finish.
Beautiful. I wonder how much influence Molson-Coors has on the wee town of Creemore...

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
473ml can, seasonal beer that caught my eye as I was leaving the LCBO
Pours a hazy golden colour with a decent light tan head. The aroma is very rich, malty and hoppy at once, a really nice blend of smells. The taste is very rich and flavorful. Very nice malt start which quickly turns into a more notable hops kick. They really have a nice hop blend in this beer and it translates nicely into the palate as well. A very full mouthfeel with the lingering hop bitterness.
Good work Creemore, keep em coming!

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
UPDATED: APR 28, 2012 473 ml can from the LCBO. pours a slightly hazed amber with a small white head. poor rentention but minimal carb. aroma of creemore house malt bill, slightly more hops then regular creemore (very fresh green hops), very fragrent but not totally exciting. the flavour is more polished then the aroma. natural progression from the malt to the hops and again the hops are very green and fresh. id filter it less (if possible) and hop it more. a nice beer though, great for the summer.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Pours a hazy orange colour with a thin white creamy head. The aroma is a little musty, insense, caramel, citus, floral hop. The flavour is strange, and interesting, has a hint of that mustiness in it, some caramel sweetness, vegetable broth, hops, ends on a mustiness. The mouthfeel is creamy.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
This beer poured a dark orange colour with a nice big white head. To the nose there are scents of hopps, citrus, vegetables and pepper. First taste was smooth and very flavourful. Flavours of bitterness/hopps, vegetables and a little spice. Finish is hoppy with flavours of grass and a little caramel. Palate is lingering creamy (???) with hopp / bitterness receding.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 14/20
50 cl can, Mulmur, ON, Canada, via the brewery. Slightly hazy copper colour, frothy head. Spicy aroma, slightly watery-er texture than I hoped for, although the mouthfeel was very nice with a smooth, velvety carbonation (if that is possible). Seems to be something in between the pilsner and their classic lager, a nice summer offering.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
473 ml can - pours a hazy (but not as hazy as I was expecting) amber honey colour with a good sticky head. For aroma, I get much of that familiar Creemore nose, but fuller and fresher - a bit of sulphur, light fruit, and a touch of hops. Flavour is similar, with a yeasty, bready component. A very nice beer, but I’m not as blown away by it as others. Similar to, but better than, the regular Creemore lager, and certainly better than the pilsner. However, if you are not a fan of the Creemore house flavour, steer clear.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Can (473ml). I hear great things about this one ... Hazy amber, average white head (4-). Solid aroma - light cereal/biscuity malt, a lot of floral/herbal bitterness - almost makes it to 8/10 but there’s a little more alcohol on the nose than I would have expected, but that’s a minor quibble. Taste - very, very nice - fresh grassy/herbal bitterness and perfectly balancing biscuity malt - I get that little bit of lemon zest too - yummy. Light, chewy, nice dry aftertaste - frankly, WAY better than what the normal Creemore has become over the past 5-6 years (I know, I know - "Molson hasn’t changed anything!" - bullshit).

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Dark amber. Real hazy mabe opposed to cloudy. What I think of as European malt taste. Almost a hint of cinamon. A hint of lemon near the end. A noticeable but restrained hop presence. Solid lager with plenty of taste. Nice that it is in a 500ml can.

1st off I would like to thank molson for leaving creemore alone and letting them creat some outstanding lagers. Slightly hazy amber pour, beautiful nose of soft bscuitymalts and some really nice zesty slightly citrucy hops. Wow this beer is so smooth and soft I could exult drink this all day! Outstanding!
