3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
In short: A pillowy nourishing, refreshing and hoppy golden lager. Superior tasty session lager.
How: Can 473ml. Consumed fresh a few weeks after receiving it from HogTownHarry. Thanks a lot Harry.
The look: Partly cloudy golden orange topped by a medium white head
In long: Pleasant nose of hops that are between leafy and tea-like. Reminds me of some Sterling based beer I’ve had, I might be wrong though. A smooth pillowy body with a nice marriage of the malts and yeast giving the beer a nice doughy and bready character. Taste of citrusy dough, fresh white bread, floral notes, some grass, tree leaves, apricots. Some unusual but not unpleasant vegetable notes (I did picked up carrot !?!). Overall this beer feels nourishing and refreshing. Very sessionnable. In my country where we make shitty cars and female swimmer have less testosterones than I do, it is nice to find something that truly feels german.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
500ml Can: I first tried this at the launch party at Victory Cafe, managed to find some cans in store tonight to try it again. Pours copper and cloudy, a very large foamy white head, excellent looking beer. Aroma is sour lemon, brown sugar, fresh bread, hops.. wow, really nice. The first sip is bready, peach and a hop bite on the tip of the tongue, chased with a distinctive tea character. Second sip I guzzled, grabbed some great hop bitterness with an almost Meyer lemon character, right back into that tea chaser. This is truly the lager for ale drinkers, tons of flavour and character, just an excellent job.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Amber colour with an aroma of hop and citrus. Taste is superb. Citrus playing on the palate with the hop bitterness on the way down. A winner for Creemore, wish I bought more than one.

4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 16/20
473 mL can. Pours a nice orangey-gold, with a frothy white head. Sharp hop aroma, with a hint of flowers and citrus. Very hoppy, though also very smooth and mild. Doesn’t have the insane hop kick I was expecting, but the hops are certainly there and just counterbalanced by a smooth honey and citrus finish. Excellent balance found. Not an extreme beer, but has a great everyday beer quality to it.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
473ml can acquired in trade with Sammy (thanks!). Poured a medium and cloudy golden color with an averaged sized off white head. Aromas of earthiness, floral hops, and citrus. Tastes of floral hops, lighter earthiness, some citrus, and graininess.

2.4 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
Pale amber-gold pour. Nose is a bit sulphurous. A touch of light breadiness as well. Softly earthy and a little bit sweet. A bit of DMS towards the finish. Meh.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Can - 473ml. Superb hazy amber body with a generous white frothy head. Decent malty/hoppy aroma with some herbal and caramel hints. Its fresh hoppy taste carries citrusy and herbal notes. Ends with a good bitter finish. Good introduction to the style.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
[2456-20090821] 473mL can. Fern plant hops aroma has hints of floral. Hazy, bright orange body with a long-lasting creamy white head. Grainy vegetal hops flavour has generic metallic qualities. Medium body. Not bad, interesting plant characteristics.

3.6 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Can. Wow, this beer has aromas of watermelon mostly, orange grapefruit and passion fruit too. Wonderfully fruity nose. The taste is more sweet fruit but with a hint of floral hops, good hop presence with a bit of spice too. Delicious.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
473 mL can. Looks like regular Creemore, only cloudy. Great lacing, as with the original. By the end of the glass, there was some grainy sediment in the bottom. Grainy/earthy/herbal aroma. Flavour has grainy malt, spiciness, a little thin caramel, and a slight bitterness. Quite full and flavourful for a lager. Another solid beer from Creemore.
