COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
A rich, well-balanced pilsner style lager. Its extra body gives it extra smoothness with only a fleeting, pleasant after-bitterness.

This was my party beer in highschool. It was a great beer back then, but I’ve moved on to greener pastures since.

muzzlehatch (4424) - Burlington, Vermont, USA - MAR 25, 2002
Bottled (clear!). Very attractive-looking brew, nice deep amber color with a rich-looking foamy head and nice lacing. Aroma not bad at all; no skunkiness, surprisingly, and a reasonably ’fresh’ sweetish floral scent. The flavor is on the sweet side, with little hop presence; at the end, a sort of stale bitterness sets in. Thin body. Not a terrible beer by any means; I’ll take it over any Molson/Labatt product that comes to mind.

Roli (405) - laval, Quebec, CANADA - SEP 26, 2002
Its a standard for Sleeman beer. It taste a little bit like other commercial beer but a little step higher ! A little after-taste but nothing to complain about.

Daytona00 (132) - Quebec City, Quebec, CANADA - SEP 5, 2003
Come in clear bottle like all Sleeman products. Very pale yellow color. Average flavor with a correct after taste. Better its cold. I prefer much more the Cream Ale from Sleeman.

This is an okay Canadian lager, actually slightly above average. It pours okay for its "non-head-oriented" style, a typical short and brief foam and minimal lacing (nonetheless its texture _is_ too watery). Silver Creek advertises itself as having only a fleeting after-bitterness. I find a rather strong after-bitterness -- their advertising consultant apparently doesn't know recognize the complexities of beer terminology enough to realize that a strong "after-bitterness" can actually be considered a positive by some (including myself). I also like the light gold color showing through the no-frills crystal clear glass; after all, this beer style isn't meant to keep long and it actually can enhance the experience to be able to look at a clear, no-label bottle of beer. One thing though: even though this is a bottled product there is a surprising metallic tinge to it which is pronounced in this type of beer as opposed to, say, peaty canned Boddington's Ale. This metallic taste lingers in the aftertaste as well. There's also a certain element of an artificial sweetness over and above the natural malt/grain sweetness -- as if they drop a sugar cube in each 6-pack in an attempt to subliminally enhance it. In summary, 3 or 4 of these are great, though it can become a bit lethargic beyond that.

rauchbier (3627) - Isle Of Beer, Lincolnshire, ENGLAND - FEB 25, 2007
Bottle, from Rhythm & Booze in Brigg. Gold, thin white head and good condition. Gentle grain and a faint hoppy bitterness in the nose, low bitter hop and fruity malt in the mouth and a low grainy bitter chalkiness in the finish.

AWS9 (500) - Mississauga, Ontario, CANADA - AUG 18, 2007
UPDATED: MAY 11, 2009 Gave this one a very generous rating earlier, cottage’s can cloud your judgment of beer (which is not a bad thing). Still, a pretty solid lager that seems underrated.

Grwido (57) - Dartmouth, Nova Scotia, CANADA - NOV 23, 2010
Aroma is bland. Has an amber colour with a white head. Light bitter-sweet taste. Seams fizzy, an abrupt finish.

341ml bottle. Part of the Sleeman variety pack before it was replaced with Sleeman Light. I can see the logic behind having a light rather than two similar lagers, but I rather enjoyed the sharpness of Silver Creek over the Original and Lights. It might not be to everyone’s taste, but it was my favourite of their lagers.

Metalchopz (2372) - Cantley, Quebec, CANADA - FEB 16, 2011
This is a beer I use to buy a lot for the back deck, summer 2005, when I had people over. Pours a clean light golden colour with a white head that is average and has a bit of lacing. The nose is quite malty, semi-sweet and grainy. Semi-creamy mouthfeel (and was quite refreshing, straight from the ice and water, on those warm summer nights). A nice blend of the malt with a slight hoppy attack in the finish. Nothing spectacular, but a better-than-average lager that will please most none beer drinkers.
