4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 17/20
Many know the torrid history of Creemore, namely its absorption by Molson. For a while, afterward, things did indeed get off track for one of Ontario’s favourite indie lagers, as Molson foisted cheap malts upon the fine folks in Creemore, ON. I broke from Creemore Springs lager for a while (as did many, sadly), and returned just recently to find that much integrity has been restored to this wonderful beer. Pours a pleasing deep honey-gold with a fair head and nice lacing. Aroma is of rich, sweet malts. The flavor is back, if not more refined and consistent-tasting than the independant days. That of course means some of the old rough-hewn charm of this lager has vanished, but I believe a fair balance has been struck. Satisfying mouthfeel, and that reassuring feeling that you’re drinking something well-made.

Pours a clear bubbly golden-orange with an average size creamy white head. Aroma of grain, malt, a hint of fruit and slight hops. Bland, mild flavour of grain, malt and faint hops.

Pours a clear golden Amber. Aroma is bready with slight notes of honey. Taste is sharp and bitter like a Pilsner, while having a nice round malty quality at the start. Mouthfeel is smooth and dry.

I like a restaurant that makes a few dishes from one region,& I like a brewery that makes no more then 10 different beers.
Nice rich malty lager that is refreshing.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Pours a clear copper topped by a finger of off-white frothy head showing moderate retention and leaving a few traces of lacing. The nose is grainy with a little yeast. Moderate carbonation. The taste is malty, bready with a mild grassy feature though a medium body and dry finish. Not bad at all. Cheers!

went camping and my brother in law throws a brown paper bag at me filled with pint sized beers and says, "Nate went to Canada and brought these back for your rateBeer ticks." I paraphrased a little but you get the idea. It was skunky.
