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.

Bottle. Deep bubbly amber. Some pretty good head on pour. Yeasty nose followed by bready malts and yeast in flavor. Not bad.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 11/20
I really wanted to like this beer more than I did. As far as Lagers and I go, this is pretty damned good. The can, I believe, is what killed it for me, as there is a slightly metallic taste that it unforgiving. She’s a beauty, a nice big frothy and cream head atop a clean light amber body. Smell and taste are of very mildly spicy hops, caramel sweetness, cereal, light hay. Body is somewhat heavy for the style but I enjoy a fuller mouthfeel so that’s a good thing. I’d like to try this from a bottle or on tap.

Grain, traditional hops, hints of bread and caramel, and a touch of fruityness. Medium body and carbonation. Smooth, clean and refreshing in the mouth. Overall a great beer for the style. Very smooth with classic flavours.

341ml bottle. Fire-brewed, huh. Yeah, cuz that means something. Sure. Golden color with a small white head. Aroma is perfectly fine, cereal grains, very slightly floral. The flavor is actually not bad, malty and smooth. Slight caramel sweetness. Minimal hop character but slight bitterness. Medium-light body, smooth and easy mouthfeel. Dammit, I actually sort of enjoy this. Shoot me.

Can shared by brew3crew. Pours a clear amber color with a small off white head. The aroma and flavor have sweet malts, biscuity, some grassy hops, pretty much what was expected from a "premium" lager.

Refreshing. Kinda tasty.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Pretty tasty lager poured out of a can. Had a deep, dark gold colour, but not much head materialized at the top. Smells of lightly baked bread, subtle tastiness and caramel come out of the glass. Fairly smooth across the palate giving flavours of baked bread, a touch of caramel and some delicate floral hopping show towards the end. The after taste is finished with just a touch of lingering bitterness. Pretty good for a Molson owned beer.
