3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
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

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.

3.2 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 17/20
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.

3.4 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Big cream colour head, with the Euopean pour. Crisp clean copper colour. Light grassy aroma. Lightly hopped and stronger malt for a pilsner. Nice balance and mouth feel. A certain caramel taste. More like a light bock than a pilsener.

3 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
A beautiful full gold colour. Aroma hints at quality hops. Beer is a little too syrupy to be a true Pilsener though. It seems to me this used to be drier and slightly more characterful.

3.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
This is a pilsener (lager?) par-excellence. Pours a amber brown, nice head that lasts and lacing. The malts are quite nice providing an interesting palate and satisfying delivery. Has a very "fresh" taste to it and is quite smooth. Overall a great beer worth searching for. Tipsy like!

3.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Fresh and light beer, Average head, whihc diminishes, Sparkling amber colour. Not a lot of flavour at first. Perhaps it's alittle too cold. Comes in after. Very nice! Light to medium body and a little dry. This may be my new everyday drinking beer!

4.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Beautiful amber-gold colour with a strong white head. Pleasant and well-balanced aroma & flavour of sweet malt and crisp hops. If there's a better Canadian lager, I've yet to try it.
