Beer Snob (501) - Ontario, CANADA - MAY 17, 2010
Orangey with a bit of haze. Smells like springtime! Hint of citrus, touch of herbs. Light aroma overall. Absolutely delicious as well. More robust than a lager, yet more refreshing than most ales. Goes down really smooth, but leaves a lingering taste that fades beautifully.
Really great stuff, perfect for summer. duckdown (82) - GTA, Ontario, CANADA - MAY 13, 2010
473ml can from LCBO (Dundas/Mavis)
This is a nice beer by Creemore. Unlike most people, I don’t get a whole lot of citrus from it but predominantly HOPS HOPS and more HOPS. Appearance is a very pretty clouded amber color, pours with a thick foamy head that lasts for a little while. Some moderate lacing in the glass. Would definitely buy this again, missed it last season and am glad to have snagged a few cans this time around. GRM (4242) - Aylmer, Quebec, CANADA - MAR 4, 2010

Draught at Victory Cafe and cans from the brewery. It has a rich copper hue with a hazy body, and a remarkably fresh and enticing aroma that holds notes of toasted grain, dried grass and juicy hops, along with a hint of yeast. The body is lightly carbonated, and while the flavour seems a bit muted at first, giving the beer a few minutes to warm allows it to open up considerably, revealing a perfect balance between sweet, caramelish malt and pleasantly bitter hops, with a delicate suggestion of lemon zest in the finish. The yeast is also noticeable, but not overpowering, it just adds a well integrated depth and richness to the flavour. An excellent beer all around, and one that I hope Creemore Springs brings back, as I couldn’t get enough it if for the few weeks it was available this past summer. blankboy (7884) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - DEC 14, 2009
Can [473ml]. Pours a slightly hazy golden-amber with an average size lasting foamy white head. Nice aroma of biscuity malt, citrus fruit, floral hops, some sweetness and yeast. Great refreshing flavour of biscuity malt, a surprising amount of floral hops (in a good way!), fruit (citrus and peach), a hint of spices and a nice, dry bitter finish. Medium bodied, almost creamy mouthfeel. Not only is this the best Creemore beer, it’s one of the best beers made in Ontario -- Please Creemore, make this again!
kramer (6991) - Sunbury, Pennsylvania, USA - OCT 24, 2009
16 oz can. Pours a clear dark gold body with a one finger frothy white head that left some patchy lacing. Lightly toasty and bready malt with just a light floral hoppiness, maybe a touch of yeast. Pretty simple and straightforward, but there’s a bit of softness on the finish that may be from the yeast. A little toasty with crusty bready malt, very light bitterness on the finish. Lighter bodied with a nice almost creamy softness and light carbonation. Not bad, but certainly no reason to seek it out other than for the style. Toward the bottom of the style for me. Boutip (6628) - Gatineau, Quebec, CANADA - OCT 19, 2009
Can: Poured a bright lightly hazy copper color lager with a large foamy head with average retention and some lacing. Aroma of dry caramel malt with floral undertones and some clean crisp hops. Taste is a well balanced mix between some floral malt with notes dry caramel and a light green hoppy finish. Body was quite full with good carbonation. Very well done though additional hops would have benefited this beer as well as slightly less filtration.
Lubiere (14262) - Ottawa, Ontario, CANADA - OCT 17, 2009
A golden orange beer with a thon lacing white head. In aroma, an intense mix of German hops, herbal and pungeant, orange pulp, pledge lemon, fruity esters, quite nice. In mouth, a good sweety nutty malt, grainy mash, and good German hops, a bit light in mouth. Can from LCBO, shared with probstk, Sept. 12 2009. rudolf (2360) - Buffalo, New York, USA - OCT 16, 2009
Can from the LCBO. Clear body, fluffy white head. Nose is spicy noble hops, reallly nice toasted malt, a small amount of caramel, some fruitiness. Flavor is that nice toasted malt, decent hop (I’d like a bit more) flavor. Finish has really great maltiness, maybe a small hint of sulfur & more of that noble hop goodness. XtraStout (46) - Alberta, CANADA - OCT 12, 2009
One of my favourite beers in recent memory. Why? Cause its was so pleasantly balanced. It had nice spicy hops but not too much to make it just a sipping beer. It was light enough to be able to enjoy more than one at a time.
If anyone has had the Tankhouse by Miss St. then I’d say its like a lighter less bitter version (and that’s not knocking the Tankhouse).
