look: 3.5 | smell: 3 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 2.5 | overall: 3.5
Poured from a 473ml can into a DogFish Head signature glass (January 6, 2011). The code "K191009:43" is stamped on the bottom of the can, which for Creemore Springs means this was packaged at 9:43am on the 19th of an unidentified month in 2010. I hate obscure packaging codes.
*Note on the Creemore Springs packaging codes. I was previously informed that the letter portion of the code was a direct correlation to the number of the month, (eg A=January, B=February), however I have come across several codes that are far too deep in the alphabet (beyond 12 letters), to relate to a specific month. I'm a bit confused by this, and quite frankly wish Creemore would come up with a more sane packaging date system.
I picked this up on a recent visit home to Canada.
Eyes: As expected from a pilsener, it pours a crystal clear pale golden color. A white foamy head form and dissipates kjust a bit too quickly, retention and lacing are minimal, but true to style.
Nose: Prominent grassy Saaz hops, with a surprising lemony, fruity profile.
Tongue: Follows the nose closely, a solid punch of sweet grassy/citrus noble hops, followed up by a modest bitter finish. True to style, but not overly impressive.
Mouth: Light, crisp, overall nice, while a bit heavy on the metallic, bitter finish. Carbonation could certainly use a bit of a boost.
Libation: This is a bigger beer than the 5.3% ABV would suggest. Flavorful and quite good, but there just doesn't seem to be enough balance of crispness and flavor to put it over the top.
Serving type: can

3.5/5 rDev -1.1%
look: 4 | smell: 4 | taste: 3 | feel: 4 | overall: 3.75
Serving Type - 473ml Can poured into a pilsner glass
Appearance - Pours a crystal clear golden/straw coloured with 2 fingers of bright white foamy head which dissipates fairly quickly. A small bit of carbonation is visible. Next to no lacing i left behind.
Smell - Sweet grains are most predominant. I also detect some wet grass and a faint 'hoppy' smell.
Taste - Lot's of grains here as well. Pilsner malt features in a big way. Hop bitterness is light but balances nicely with the rest of the beer.
Mouthfeel - Clean and crisp and exceptionally dry finish. Lot's of carbonation and light body.
Serving type: can
