COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
The first pilsner was brewed in 1842, over a hundred years ago, in the Bohemian town of Plzen. Revolutionary at the time, it was a fired-brewed beer characterized by a rich golden colour, sweet malty flavour and an abundance of hops. Our brewmaster visited the Czech Republic to study their methods and in honour of our 20th anniversary we are proud to share his interpretation of this classic beer style. Similar to original pilsners, our direct fire brewing process and combination of specialty malts yield a beer with a deep golden colour and delicious malt flavours. Natural spring water creates a soft pure background on which Czech hops impart a fresh fragrant aroma and bitter finish.

Gold,lasting white head, small bead.Faint spicy hop nose.effervescent noble hop profile, however a metallic finish spoils this somewhat. Possibly a bad bottle, will rerate at a later date.

Really nice pilsner. Sweet grainy and grassy aromas with toasty grain flavours. Mild finish...sweeter up front.

473ml can. Small white head - dissipates fairly quickly in glass to leave trace amount of lacing. Aroma is mildly acidic/alcoholic and somewhat soapy. Bright yellow brew (Lovibond 6). Tastes lightly bitter and acidic initially. Gives way to a wet palate, with odd aftertaste of average duration. Soft carbonation.

Out of the four Creemores I’ve had, this is my least favourite. That’s not saying much, however, as anyone who’s tried their brews knows. It’s just a pilsner. I don’t doubt the authenticity of the ingredients, I just don’t find that much of a difference between different beers of the style. Much better than the typical Middle America/Canada mainstream lagered beer, though, so definitely recommended. My only beef was the lack of head, so I’ve got to double-check that.

HeistAlmighty (1156) - Saint John, New Brunswick, CANADA - APR 24, 2012
473ml can. Pours a slightly hazy straw/gold with ample fluffy head. Nice aroma, herbal hops and a light sweetness. Taste is much the same. Body is wonderfully smooth, dry and light. Overall, super easy to drink.

PatIrish (169) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - APR 14, 2012
From the bottle, pours a clear amber, lots of carbonation with a white head. On the nose malty, slightly floral, I don't get to much in the way of hops other than the subtle spicyness of Saaz. Fairly bubbly on the palate, sweet start with a small bitter finish. Good beer. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Raistlin (181) - London, Ontario, CANADA - APR 12, 2012
This beer has very unappealing appearance. It is hazy and has dirty golden colour. Head is white and average. The after taste is quite unique, almost reminds of taste of coffee. It does not linger too long in your mouth. medium bitterness, Texture of the beer is average, as well as carbonation. medium body,

reebtogi (4812) - Edmonton, Alberta, CANADA - MAR 15, 2012
355ml bottle pours a pale golden color with a finger of white head that settles to leaves a few spots of lacing. Aroma is light cereal grains and spicy hops. Taste is light malty sweetness with a sharp spicy hop bitterness that finishes clean. Light to mediun body and adequate carbonation leave a pleasing sensation on the palate. Fits in nicely with the best of this style and highly recommended to sample.
