SimonPatrice (312) - Montréal, Quebec, CANADA - SEP 21, 2003
Nice clear amber color, small head. Fresh cereals, a bit of hopes, small citrus hints. Refreshing, thirst quenching, some breadiness in the finish.

Boutip (4656) - Gatineau, Quebec, CANADA - SEP 17, 2003
Pourred a dark amber brew with almost no head (that was alittle bit disapointing). Taste is very refreshing and sweet with great taste of hops. Very german type of lager. Would drink this again anytime.

AceOfHearts (1375) - Mountain View, California, USA - AUG 22, 2003
Tap. Amber, average head, and VERY average beer. Malty, hints of toffee and apples, but nothing special. Slightly off finish that lingered.

MartinT (7760) - Montreal, Quebec, CANADA - AUG 13, 2003
UPDATED: OCT 4, 2011 Toasted malts yield some sweetness...Grassy hops stammering, earthy with flecks hammering...Delicate promises are kept, while enticing the tongue to travel...

argo0 (11353) - Washington DC, USA - AUG 10, 2003
(WCC2003): Clear amber with small off-white head. Aroma is apple, light grassy. Taste is light apple at the start, then turns grassy mid-body and stays that way through to the swallow. Light/medium body, some crispness.

One quick look will already tell you most lagers will pale in comparison to Creemore, as this brew is a couple shades darker than your mainstream muck. A tight, frothy head quickly builds, gradually subsiding to a thin off-white layer. Pleasant smells of cherry, hay and wood dominate, though there’s also a distracting hint of Styrofoam. A very well-balanced, creamy palate is supported by a good dose of hop bitterness. Creaminess continues to dwell on the tongue, with thoughts of powdered milk and beer-flavoured Campino candy. The curious fact that this lager is produced in a town called Creemore and has a creamy palate and flavour is probably one part suggestion, one part intent and one part synchronicity. Also every part delicious.

UPDATED: JUL 3, 2005 Re-Rate June 2005Bottle. 500 mL. Had to go outt and get a bottle to satisfy my curiousity after the pint. Amber body, moderate head. Crisp, mildly hoppy bitterness throughout with a touch of malt in a supporting role. Average palate. Much nicer experience. 6/3/3/6/14 <P> Re-rate June 2005 Draft. Firkin pub in Toronto. Have been meaning to re-rate this for a while since the rating below is a bit inadequate but this sample was not up to par, or at least my memory of what this beer can be. Amber brown body, small white head. Aroma of malt and a touch sweet. Flavour has a pleasant mild bitterness to it under moderate malt. Marred by a disproportionate amount of sweet buttery caramel. Made me think diacetyl but I really couldn’t pleasant. Still a pleasant enough pint, moderate mouthfeel but it was distracting rather than additive. Will strive to re-rate yet again. 5/3/5/3/12 <P> Original Rating Pilsener? Ok... Amber coloured lager. Fairly well balanced. Not exceptional but I order it quite frequently as a life save in non-beer bars. 6/3/6/3/15

Best Canadian beer... period. Enjoyable any time of year, easy on the way down... aftertaste minimal.

wnp22 (685) - Toronto (Roncesvalles Village), Ontario, CANADA - JUN 1, 2003
Little or no aroma. Deep amber golden colour, white lacy head. Slightly subtle hopped flavour with a tinge of bitterness. Little or no malty sweetness. Dry finish.

UPDATED: JUN 23, 2011 I used to say this was my favourite beer, but I have to change that now. I don’t know for sure but I have the feeling that since Creemore Brewery was bought by Molson (?) they’ve fiddled with the recipe. It used to have a good full taste, now it seems fizzier, and sweeter, much more mainstream than I recall. It’s still better than most mainstream brands, but I really think that it was tinkered with, and not in a good way.
