Notes/Commercial Description:
Lager is made the world over, but Creemore Springs Premium Lager is one of a kind. In all our travels, we've never found another like it. From the start, we've fire-brewed our flagship beer to be unique. It’s always made with the best ingredients and a strict adherence to traditional brewing methods. It’s just different up here, and so is our lager.

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.

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.
