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.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
0.473 tap. Clear, brown color with a reddish tinge and a small, white head. Aroma of pale malts, a touch of maple, yeasts, and a bit of skunky fragrances. Taste is delicate abd malty sweet. Light body, slick texture, and an average carbonation. Finish is very much like maple syrup, kudos for the quality. Overall not a bad beer, nice maple touch.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Tap at the Rex in Toronto. Darkish amber with small white head. Malty, somewhat buttery nose. Pretty nutty too I’d say. Flavour... well, no corners there, it’s a very rounded one, with some sweetness and a little hoppy character. Yet the finish lacks any bitterness. A restrained, easy-going lager. I kinda like it.

Can. Dark red, small white head. The aroma is a bit metallic, but not too strong. The taste is good though, a bit malty and very hoppy. Balanced and clean finish. Nice!

3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Servie d’une canette à une pinte. À l’oeil, un peu plus foncée qu’une pilsner, disons que c’est pâle pour une "ambrée"... Au nez, céréales avec une légère odeur de houblon. En bouche, on sent premièrement l’amertume du houblon, qui disparait assez rapidement. Ensuite, céréales. La finale est faible, tout comme la quantité de bulles. Pas mauvaise, mais pas exceptionnelle.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Draught at Maritime Ale House, Halifax airport. It clear deep amber with a decent white head. The nose is rather malty, bread, cereal, toasty grain, cracker and just a hint of spice. The taste is smooth, malt-driven, lots of bready malt, toasty grain, grass, light creaminess, cereal and mild spice with a dry finish. Medium body and average carbonation. Decent enough malty lager. Pretty drinkable lager bier.

Bottle@toronto airport. Small slight haze light copper. Floral honey caramel flavours. Quite sweet. Thoughts go to a steam beer. The sweetness is awkward.
