Bottle at airport lounge in Toronto. It's a pale golden colour with an ever so slightly malty aroma. It's got ok body compared to what I was expecting. It's not great though.

Scent of hops and yeast. Clear gold colour. Abrupt bitterness without much discernible flavour. Medium body with mild carbonation. Not my sort of beer.

Poured with minimal head and an orange hue. Basic taste with fair amount of fizz. Ok macro brew to consume while watching sports.

[[Style tick]] Pours a light golden with a small head with low retention but that still offers good lacing. Aroma is hard to describe as it is almost nonexistent but I’ll venture and say that it smells of creamed corn and light floral hops. Taste isn’t too much better with some really light cereals and a lightly (almost to homeopathic level) bitter finish. Mouthfeel is watery, carbonation level medium. As people said, this is as close to a cream ale than a 18% imperial stout would be. Boring to death...

Airport lounges are great for ticking off crappy macro brews, and Toronto airport delivers in style! Quite yellow this beer, and quite flat looking despite being fizzy. Smells of vaguely skunky hops. Tastes of very little, which may be a blessing in disguise.

2.9 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bière blonde, translucide, avec un col de mousse éphémère et une effervescence soutenue. Le nez est tout en céréales avec une touche citronnée. En bouche, le grain et l’acidité, que je qualifiait de «citronnée» au nez, rappliquent. La bière est mince, aqueuse et pétillante. La finale laisse poindre une amertume modérée. Bien balancée, rafraîchissante, bonne, mais loin d’un classique.

Just opting for something tonight, so I brought home a case of this. It’s not because I am particularly fond of Sleeman’s, but more for the name of the style. I have a very fond memory of drinking some absolutely delicious cream ale once at a restaurant my brother snuck me into while I was 16. Maybe it was because I wasn’t such a beer snob back in the paleolithic period, but even so, the memory of that golden nectar lives on. It wasn;t Sleeman’s, I know that for sure; some small local brewery made it, though damned if I can recall it. Anyway. Sleeman’s. Clear bottle, clear beer, looks like it had already been drank once. Pours with a very short-lived head. Aroma is basic sweet, bready, megabrew beer smell. Taste is also quite light, a bit of balance there with some hops, finishes with a lightly bready flavour that isn’t as bad as a lot of megabrew. Not exactly a stellar beer, but I’d not be against having some on a hot day.

I used to like this beer, in a different life. I wasn’t so impressed now, after so many years. Maybe it hasn’t changed, but compared to the usual crap, this was much better than anything mainstream. It does smell like a lager - actually an average Pilsener, and it has the mouthful of an ale, with a bit of maltiness and biscuit behind a lager bitterness. Strange, but not too bad.

Delicious Canadian beer. Slightly bitter but we’ll rounded. Hay, nuts, toast, caramel.
