look: 3 | smell: 2.75 | taste: 2.75 | feel: 3 | overall: 2.75

341ml bottle poured into pint glass 12/2/14

A bright yellow liquid with plenty of bubbles but just a short lived thick film that leaves zero lace, looks pretty basic, about what I expected with a little more color

S slightly skunky, a little grass, lemon, apple juice and cracker, nothing special

T has some grassy hops but there's some skunk in there and some bleached paper, not quite offensive but leaves a little something to be desired

M thin but not quite watery, sorta just foams up and flattens out in your mouth, has a bit of a cardboard aftertaste

O it could be much worse but at the end of the day shes just another macro

I was expecting something rank but this was drinkable but nothing worth looking for and I wouldn't buy it again

341 mL bottle taken from a Sleeman Selections pack picked up at the LCBO; served well-chilled.

Pours a familiar golden-yellow colour, highly effervescent and topped with one finger of fizzy, sparkling white head. It disappears over the next minute or two, soon settling into a dense cap and collar. I don't have much to say about the aroma - it's a little grainy, with some sweet corn and wet hay. Pretty basic pale lager stuff; not really off-putting, but not all that inspiring, either.

And honestly, 'basic pale lager' pretty much says it all, as this is probably the least creative brew under the Sleeman banner that I have ever tasted (yes that includes the Original Draught). Pale, grainy malt sweetness forms the bulk of the flavour, with green apple skin and corn also contributing. Dry finish with a wisp of grass - like most of Sleeman's flagship beers the hops are basically an afterthought. Light-bodied and watery, with strong, fizzy carbonation appropriate for the style. Highly drinkable, and that is the only category where this beer excels.

Final Grade: 2.88, a C. Sleeman Silver Creek Lager is very forgettable, but I will grant it some faint praise by saying that I like it more than the Original Draught - this one has more of a Euro lager feel to it, unlike the OD which is too corny and sweet for my liking. While this is a passable lager that I could theoretically drink again, I doubt I'd spend money on it - there are just way too many quality imported lagers available at great prices these days for quasi-premium stuff like this to be worth repeated purchases. Most BAs should be able to pass on this one without missing anything.
