I recall this from a while back - maybe during my Buffalo days...or maybe a trip or 2 to Toronto earlier. At Graffiti's in Kensington Market this seemed to be the offering I hit up the most. Served in an imperial pint glass, it poured a deep dark honey color with a bit of butterscotch/caramel tinge. Head was a solid finger with decent retention and a little bit of lacing as a kicker.
The nose on this is very clean as expected - maybe a little bit of Saaz and some noble hops but everything is quite light - even the mild grain profile with only a little bit of caramel.
The caramel and the light malt roast begin to emerge on the palate pretty nicely but the carbonation keeps this from being overly heavy. It has a very very very light noble hop profile with a little bit of a piney/balsa wood dryness.
Nothing offensive on the palate - again, it's very light and although of moderate levels there's a bit of Beautiful Chemistry going on. The whole is definitely greater than the sum of its parts; the individual elements may not be impressive on a stand-alone basis but the package is well put-together.
Definitely sessionable. Drinks very lightly, is quite clean, and finishes off as such. Great beer at Graffiti's to catch a show there.

A great local beer from Ontario. Worth the higher-than-average price for a tallboy, coming in at around $2.90 per one tall can.
Drank from: Tall can
Appearance: 4/5. The can looks great, having a small-town, homely feel to it. The beer itself looks great too; exactly what one wants in a lager.
Smell: 4/5. Nothing particularly rewarding about the smell, does not smell bad, inviting aroma that stays interesting even after 4-5 beers.
Taste: 4.25/5. Great tasting beer! Feels good drinking it. Clean taste, not muddled down with preservatives, really refreshing and a true taste.
Mouthfeel: 4.25/5. As I said for the taste, it feels good to drink this beer. It's cleanliness is really showcased, you don't get any chemical or unpleasant tastes. Just good beer.
Overall: 4.25/5. One of my preferred beers. I've only encountered them in tall cans, and that's fine with me. Will gladly drink this beer if given the option!

Sampled on tap at an Irish pub in Calgary. This brew arrived in a pint glass, a really nice russet bronze color, veering towards red, fizzy and with billowing white foam that retained its form quite well. Aroma all "grape and grain", some nice floral aromatics, sweet malts, hints of toast and sour fruit. Palate amazingly complex and well-rounded, with malts and hops synching up near-perfectly, with neither component running the show nor hiding in the shadows. Mellow biscuit and caramel malts backstop a tobacco and iris perfume, melon rind (German hops!), rhubarb, baby aspirin, a little red berry and a healthy dose of bitter citrus pith to fuel a crisp dry finish. Grainy and toasty but manages to retain some sweet and tangy complexity as well. Difficult to find flaws in this well-crafted brew and this could be a top amber/red lager choice for me in the future. Are we sure this is brewed in Ontario??? I kid, I kid. Creemore is a top-tier lager brewery and this is their flagship for a reason. Was good enough to distract me from the fights.

Big off white-light tan head slowly settles down above a clear bright copper golden colored beer.
Lightly roasted caramel malt aroma with some wood or spice hints making an appearance.
Nice lightly roasted caramel malt taste with a slight hops coming through as well.
Light dryish aftertaste with some of the caramel grain tastes sticking around with this light-medium bodied beer.
A pretty good beer, makes me think it's what amber bock would taste like if AB tried to make good beers.
