Notes/Commercial Description:
Pilsner was first made back in 1842 by the Bohemians. They used special pale malt and an abundance of hops to create a delicious, golden beer. Up here at Creemore Springs we fire-brew our pilsner the same traditional way, using only four natural ingredients starting with our own clear flowing spring water. It’s eminently drinkable, and always refreshing. Classic yet unique; it’s our fresh take on a traditional Czech pilsner.

Thinking how much I liked the lager and the keller bier, I expected a little more out of the pils mostly more hops and a bigger flavour profile. Not a bad beer but nothing to make me put my can of Konig or Bitburger down. Still nice to find in a great new mixed pack.

Canned 6 24 12

Crystal clear golden pour, two finger snow white, creamy head that won't quit. Lacing is excellent.

Sweet biscuits, a bright floral presence from the hops and the pilsner malts add a nice clean aroma.

Pilsner malts add a nice sweetness while the hops are floral and earthy. Light on the taste but that's typical for the style.

Light body, great carbonation, very refreshing.

473ml can poured into my Pilsner-Urquell glass...

A - Medium golden body, with a white head that is very frothy at first and then comes down to a thick foamy ring. Okay head retention and lacing.

S - White bread, grass, flowers, light citrus notes. A little bit of caramel. Smells much like the authentic Czech pilsners, so it's very nice.

T - Bready, quite hoppy (with some grassy, spicy notes), with a little bit of citrus and caramel. Finishes bready, slightly sweet, and quite floral.

M - Medium body. Very nice level of carbonation (fairly high yet not over the top). Very crisp and refreshing. As with all Creemore beers, this one has a very smooth, almost creamy texture to it.

O - I'm glad that Creemore still brew beer their own way, even after they were bought out by Molson Coors. Creemore's Pilsner is a very close match to the authentic Czech pilsners and is leagues ahead of the macro lagers of the parent company. Without doubt, this is one of the best Canadian pilsners I've ever had.

A friend brought this over to me from Ontario.

Poured from a 473ml. can, canned April 3, 012 (Lot D0312).

Appearance: A gold-orange body beneath a white head with some spidery lacing and thick chunks remaining.

Smell: A bit of mineral, grassy and lots of corn (the good, fresh kind).

Taste: Minerals mixed with a bit of sea salt with some tropical fruit in the finish.

Mouthfeel: Bitterness and malt meld well together without one taking over the other.

Overall: A very refreshing pils that has a bit of snap

Pale blonde colour, ring of white head, no lace to speak of really. Smell is malty, biscuit like with some of that Creemore yeastiness, fairly earthy notes that give way into some grassy and floral hops, quite clean overall. Taste is malty with a light graham cracker sweetness, earthy and dry hops, floral with a light but assertive bitterness with a yeastiness in the finish and aftertaste. Medium prickly carbonation, smooth creamy feel, medium body and like most Creemore beers has a good mouthfeel. Not bad but not the best for the style, could have another of these down the road.

16oz Tallboy into a pint glass
Creemore Springs Pilsner pours out of the can a dull golden color with some yellow shade towards the side. A inch of loose ecru colored foam came and went leaving nothing. Smell is pale pilsner malts, alot of them. Sweet smelling after some whiffs. Any hops have faded by now. Semi scent of extract. Taste is extract, corn, pale malt and sweet. Earthy hop taste that is old. Feel is a bit lackluster, I was expecting more carb from the can. Light bodied, yet not crisp enough to go down easily. I had one and now I am done.

Appearance- Golden straw yellow. Pours with a thin creamy head and bubbles are present.

Smell- Citrus and pine needles. Very sweet aroma.

Taste- Pine needle aroma present in taste. Easy drinkability with this one. Quite mild on the bitterness which is pleasant. Has a dry finish as well.

Mouthfeel- Light to medium bodied with good carbonation. Quite smooth and easy to drink.

Overall- A nice refreshing pilsner from Creemore Springs. The mildness of the hops contributes to its easy drinkability.

3.6/5  rDev +2%

Can from the LCBO, 473ml can into a pint glass. Canned on November 8, 2011.

Pours a crystal clear golden yellow with a pretty white head that fades to a think film; some remnants of head. Nose is grassy and mildly floral. Some grainy bread, general sweetness and vague characteristics that remind me of their Kellerbier. Taste is sweet and grainy, some corn bread with some light hopping. Somewhat sweet finish. Light bitterness that remains for a short while. Carbonation is a tad low, with a bit of crispiness that I think could have been more pronounced with a better carbonation level. Medium body however. Certainly not difficult to finish by any stretch, but not something I'd actively seek out. Decent nonetheless.
