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.

This beer is fairly mild. The colour is a bit darker than your average beer.

It formed a nice head when it was poured but it disappeared fairly quickly.

There doesn't seem to be any strong after taste or bold/bitter flavor.

I like to drink it with burgers done on the BBQ.

Head: Whirlpool scumbubbles w/slight yellow tinge. 3 fingers high.
Shoulders: 5/8" rim, no lace, eventually sported a dime sized film on top~right in the middle.
Knees: Clear as clear can be.
Toes: Yes, nice bubbles from the bottom of the mug.
Eyes: Very rich in color... much like transparent burnt cheese.
Ears: I hear a rainy day on the ocean.
Mouth/Tongue: Feels stingy & thick with medium carb/bitter, ick. I taste a birch bark canoe.
Nose: I can smell the bitterness like in a rubber tire tube.

Overall: The best thing about this beer is the cheese. I love melted cheddar cheese (even
slightly burnt)! I rename this beer "Morecheese Please".

473 ml can poured into a pint glass. Purchased at LCBO

Appearance - 1 finger of nice white head is poured on top of beautiful golden copper color beer. Some effervescence and there's a slightly reddish hue to the beer that looks intriguing.

Smell - Bready, biscuity, not dissimilar from other lagers yet somehow incrementally better than most of them. Little bit grassy as well.

Taste - Nice malty flavor but perceptible hop balance. Bready and biscuity again with slight bitterness in the aftertaste. Flavors are strong and bold.

Mouthfeel - Rich, filling. A decadent lager with dryish finish and medium carbonation that strikes all the right chords of good.

Overall - An excellent lager that is often the best option on tap as well when dining out in Southern Ontario.

Imagine blending a mass-produced flavorless American lager and a decently made run-of-the-mill American Pale Ale. Most of the elements max out at average and some, like the mouthfeel, fit truly into the macro category.

Little to no head. Very light color (straw) and clear. The smell is mild but well-balanced. The flavor is basically of the palest malt and a bit of raw grain. The finish was a nice peppy hop. The aforementioned body was very thin and the extremely high carbonation didn't help.

Serving Type - 473 can, poured into a nonic glass

Appearance - Pours a copper colour with a yellowish golden tinge. A good two fingers of head that dissipates quickly. Beautiful lacing around the glass.

Smell - Not a lot on the nose. A 'metallic' smell. Wondering if it could be from the can? Perhaps some grain and grass notes as well.

Taste - More complex than I was expecting, given the lacklustre aroma. Getting biscuity notes, some light glassy bits.

Mouthfeel - Medium carbonation, yet a satisfying crisp finish. Medium body, nothing to exciting.
