Wow, this beer breaks all of the rules. It pours a beautiful deep golden/red with a slightly off white thick head (which did not lace). The aroma is slightly malty with a mild slightly grassy aroma mixed with malt. This is a big beer with body and mouthfeel but with no aftertaste. It's flavorful but very clean and drinkable. I have yet to find a been in this category which is so well balanced. Nothing stands out, it just all melds perfectly together.

My favourite of all beers up to now, as it impresses me in every way a beer possibly could. Rich colour, a great flavourful taste, and the spring water definitely gives it an unusually CLEAN taste. Highly recommended to the novice beer enthusiasts (like myself) and the experts as well.

It might be nostalgia, but I considered Creemore Springs Premium Lager to be a classic when I drank it back in the early N0 N00s.

Creemore Springs pours out as a fantastic amber color with a lovely aroma of malt and hops jumping out the glass. The taste was the crown. Fantastic. It's what made me want to explore the craft brewing world. It's smooth, creamy with enough hoppyness to make you drink more.
It was always my top classed beer, without doubt.

Pours a nice dark amber color with have inch frothy head and moderate carbonation. Smell is very malty and nutty. This thing is packed with nutty flavor and slightly bitter. Goes down extremely smooth. This beer is frickin' awesome and wish I could get my hands on some more, but unfortunately won't be heading to Canada in the near future.

473 ml can. No freshness date. Nice touch of malt sweetness, mild bitterness. No unpleasant or off-flavors whatsoever. Really an extremely drinkable lager, quite delicious, not as amber in color as I would have expected but Canada craft brewing seems to be continuing to step up their game. Way to go America's hat.

Another beer I've enjoyed before, but never really took the time to review. Here goes...

Poured a clear light-copper-gold into a tall pilsner glass. Head was moderate, and died down fairly quickly, but retained a small amount throughout and left lacing on the glass. I really like the light coppery colour...looks nice.

Smells nice, too. Full is the word that comes to mind. This is the first beer I've smelled that I actually somehow understood the way that people use the word "biscuit" on this site. Malty, too. Smells good.

Taste is where this beer really takes off. My goodness. It's a truly exceptional lager. Rich. Full, again, like with the smell, but moreso, and balanced as well. There's light sweetness, some citrusy acid, and mild bitterness all in nice proportions and the interplay is really pleasant. It's a dangerous beer. Mouthfeel is really good; drinking another right away is a serious temptation, and all that stands in the way is willpower. Certainly, the beer holds that door wide open.

Definitely recommended. I'd enjoy this most in spring and fall, and on summer evenings after the heat of the day, or quite easily in winter after hockey, too.

Taken from a 500ml brown topedo with an old-style malt liquor twist top. I heard no seal crack as I bent the lid off, but there was a poof of escaping gas.
In color it is a reduced honey yellow. Very deep and multifaceted in hue, this beer launches a short, thin sheet of mousse. The aromas it contains are all fruit: melon rind, muscat, peach, nectarine together with their stones. A seductive nose. On the palate it is chewy for a lager, with fortissimo, intersecting layers of caramel, cane and toast. Clear, clean bursts of fruit accompany a thick carpet of tannic pepper and mint flavors. The finish is cleansing, bitter.
I've been encourged by recent efforts from Canada. Brilliant, stylish entries such as this one and Mill St. Organic Lager, not to mention fresh Walkerville, contrasts with the cookie-cutter aspects of the scene in the USA.

and so this is a beer of many things for me: Lives, lifestyles, memories, highs .lows, friendships, homes. I've been drinking this beer for 10+ years and it is this beer that I owe to givng me the key to unlocking and appreciating quality brewing. but I don't want to give the impression that this is a purely emotional review. Lager is not my favorite style, but this is an exception. and even though I live in the land of lager(as in yuengling) this is a wonderufl drinkable beer, quality made. this is the one and only regular beer from this brewery and is mostly drunk in the province. Luckily, I still have friends that are wonderful enough to smuggle some of this to me south of the border.
so the review- the color of this beer is exceptional, wonderful amber bronze color a clarity and wispy full white head that speaks of good clear canadian water. Even in a bottle a bit aged, the head stands up well. Aroma strongly of fresh-baked bread with a hint of alchohol. this fresh-baked bread taste permeates the drinkability. Straightforward, strong flavor of malt, flavor starts clear and strong and finshes with a full mouthfeel with a hint of sweetness. the fresh falvor asserts itself but fades gradually through the sip(or gulp), leaving a a clean sensation at the finish. Pure, unadulturated Canadian quality in a glass. highly recommended for all levels of beer drinking appreciation. worth hunting for if you can find some, best recommendation is to visit T.O. Ontario. either way its win-win for me, as your loss is my gain and my pleasure again and again. This is truly a sublime beer.

A nice 14-ounce draught of Creemore Springs Premium Lager at the Hard Rock Cafe.

Appearance - light amber colour with minimal head, thick foamy surface bubbles with foamy lace around the top 1/4 of the glass.

Smell - clean, fresh scent of barley malt, lemongrass and soft buttery bread. Slight citric nose as well.

Taste - outstanding flavours of deep malt yet balanced with a fresh, buoyant crispness of light vegetables. Nice round flavour profile and excellent balance of hops in the aftertaste.

Mouthfeel - this would be the most carbonated version of the product to date, definitely active in the mouth. The activity does amplify the flavours nicely but it would be just a little smoother if toned down a bit.

Drinkability - very easy to drink many of these. Cold and refreshing, natural flavours, goes down easy.

Poured a light amber color with a small amount of head that quickly faded, leaving a very nice lace on the glass.

Well balanced hop notes and a medium bodied mouthfeel. A faint fruity nose is present. Very refreshing!!!

This is a highly drinkable beer!

Sampled from a can

A: a picture of this beer should be in the dictionary. its a very classic looking lager. golden. fairly opaque. nice lacing and frothy head. the way a quality lager should appear.

S: Malty and balanced. very light on the nose until you breath in while taking a sip. very inviting.

T: A perfectly balanced lager. This is an easy drinker that tastes like you'd immagine your grandfathers beer would taste like. very fuity malts but not too sweet. a bitter end to your swallow.

M: Again perfect for the style

D: This could be my favorite summer session beer. its so inexpensive and readily available too. extra points there for that.

This is "Nectar of the Gods" status for this style. truly world class, and brewed in my neck of the woods which is bonus for me!
