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.

Our unique lager has a brilliant copper colour, overtones of sweet caramel malt and an appealing, well-balanced floral hop character. It's fire-brewed using the best ingredients and our own spring water.

Clear gold with smallish head. Basic malt nose. Crisp light malt body but basic. More character and flavour than Mill St. Organic.

a little heavier than a lot of these lagers, sturdy, like canada itself. this was a bit more beer than i needed with a heavy italian pasta dinner, i felt full pretty quickly, but in a beer by itself context, this is great being a little more substantial. bright brass colored brew, a short but lasting white head, and a very fresh aroma that features the lager yeast quite prominently. the malt base is nice, some light crystal in here with the pale barley, cracker and baked notes, and a touch of sweetness not often found in these types of beers. the yeast is great, old worldy and flavorful, and its fermented this very cleanly, and despite the little bit of sweet still in here, the finish is brisk and the beer has excellent carbonation to keep it moving. short of refreshing i think, but i like a good hearty lager still at a session abv. this is my first beer from these guys, and it stands out to me as distinct from a lot of other pale lagers, especially in this part of the world. enjoyable glass of beer, four season drink for sure!

Not bad but not much flavor or nose to it. An easy drinking lager but nothing to write home about or seek out; does the job at random bars without craft offerings while in Montreal.

Creemore Springs Premium Lager, brewed at Creemore Springs Brewery in the village of Creemore, Ontario. 5% alc. 473 ml can, poured into a stemmed glass. Nice white head. The beer is medium bodied. The finish is dry. I've had this off and on for years. There isn't much smell, but the taste is dark bread, malted barley, hops - all well-balanced. Creemore Springs was one of the earlier craft brewers in Ontario, launching in 1987. It was purchased by Molson-Coors in 2004. All said, this is a very good beer.

One of my favourite beers. A dark looking beer but and easy drinking taste. More flavour than most lagers but I enjoy this beer every time I drink it.

I don't know if this should really be called a larger. It's much richer. But whatever it is, it's smooth, tasty, and damn good.

On-tap 5/23/2016 at Hard Rock Café in Niagara Falls, Ontario, Canada served in a weizen glass.

A: The beer is a light amber color, with a short off-white head that fades slowly and leaves a thick lace on the glass.

S: The aroma lager yeast, caramelized malts, some fruit and some hops.

T: The taste starts out bready with flavors of lager yeast and a hearty malt character. Then some mildly sweet flavors of fruit and caramel come in. The hops presence is mild but complementary and brings a decent balance. The after-taste is slightly bready and slightly sweet.

M: Smooth and a little crisp, medium body, medium carbonation, finish is slightly sticky.

O: Tasty, goes down easily, not too filling, mild kick, good representation of style, it’s a solid beer but there are better alternatives within the style.

Outstanding beer.

Lived in Toronto for five years and this just may be the one thing I miss the most after moving back to the states.

Incredibly smooth, the mouthfeel on this is fantastic. Creamy and perfectly dry. Makes you want more. Tastes I can best describe as if Yuengling was brewed without corn and with better hops.. times ten. Was a bit on the pricey side, but I would have to say that it was worth it. If you are somewhere where this is available you should try it.

Super nice colour beer, the nice orange give this one a special look. On the can it says the that it have a brilliant copper colour. The bitterness is not that bad, they rank the bitterness to be 24 on the IBU scale , but it is not that much pronounced. I'll say more 15 to 20.

The smell is nice and the taste has a nice feeling in mouth. This is a nice beer to have with a meal or just for fun.

There is not that much foam out of this one. I'll recommend this one to anyone that like to taste a nice beer.

The can of 473 ml retailed for 3.50 $ (CAD), ABV 5.0%, the SRM is about 12

This beer strarts with a nice clear medium amber color with medium to low creamy looking head retention that fades into patches. When it gets close to your nose, it as a very subtle sweet caramel malt and floral hoppy note. The smell could have been more prominent for a single beer, but reasonable enough so that you can have many without getting annoyed. There is a nice light yeasty smell when cold that fades and leaves place for a light caramel touch when warmer. Have a sip and you will feel a very refreshing and crisp carbonation. The first sweet caramel taste will leave a half-drie hoppy taste that turns into a slight resin and spice taste.

Overall, this beer distinguished itself by the very crisp amber look and the balance of subtle flavors and bright mouthfeel that leaves your mouth just drie enough to get you to open a second one.
