look: 3.25 | smell: 2.5 | taste: 2.75 | feel: 3.25 | overall: 3

341 ml clear bottle. A light gold color with a little white froth. I used to drink a lot of this in grad school and even back then found it rather bland but otherwise unoffensive.

Aroma is grainy, slightly grassy, metallic. Smells like an old bottle cap. A faint corn-like sweetness and cooked veggies (DMS). More of the same on the palate. Creamed corn flakes, slight grassy/floral/citrus hops and vanilla. Very heavy carbonation. Slightly thicker than your average macro-lager. Pleasantly smooth. Crisp and clean. Not as cloyingly sweet as this brewery's Original Draft lager. Finishes with more dry grain astringency.

Became marginally more pleasant as I made my way through the bottle. Maybe one of the better Sleeman brews, which is not exactly a ringing endorsement.

Pours a light yellow with a light hop smell, and refreshing light malt taste. Sleeman cream ale for me is an average here in Canada it's one of those beers that sell a lot, and it's not not a beer that's discontinued. The taste is average at best, but for the price it isn't bad, but for a Canadian brewed beer, there are far superior beers out there.

It says it's a retiring beer, but here in canada it's still selling.

So the look of it: nothing too particular. Light golden color, with lots of carbonation.

The smell of it. It smells similar than the silver creek. It is corny

The taste of it. Corny with a bit of hops. Taste very similar than the Silver Creek again. I did enjoy that beer while watching a hockey game.

So overall would I recommend it ? Yes, this is a good beer overall. But the my favorite Sleeman would be the Silver Creek. It is more smooth than this one. But I still did enjoy it during a good hockey game
