This was one complex brew. When it got brought to the table I was a little worried about it doesn't have a clear appearance that I was expecting out of a traditional Canadian Lager. Pleasantly surprised I was Creemore had a great spice note without overwhelming the sweetness of the beer. It had a crisp clean finish that didn't hang in my mouth. Great drink.

Pours a clear, copper color. 1/4 inch head of a white color. Slight retention and poor lacing. Smells of pale malt, hint of sweet malt, slight hop, hint of grass, and corn/rice. Fits the style of an American Amber / Red Lager. The beer would also seem to fit nicely into the Light Lager category. Mouth feel is sharp and crisp, with an average carbonation level. Tastes of corn/rice, slight pale malt, and slight hops. Overall, weak appearance, body, and blend.

Appearance- Pours a pale copper with a finger width of bubbly white head that quickly fades.

Smell- Bready malts, slight floral hops, grains. A tad musty. Pretty basic aromas.

Taste- Bready caramel malts start you off followed by the slight floral hops and the grains. Finishes with a bitterness from the floral hops.

Mouthfeel- Medium bodied with light to medium carbonation.

Overall- An easy drinking lager by Creemore Springs. I was a little off put by the aromas but the taste certainly made up for the aroma. Besides that drawback, a lager that is better than some on the Canadian market.

I'm not a huge Amber/Red Lager fan, so it's hard for me to give this beer an unbiased review. That being said, I'd say it was just below average for it's style. It was average in appearance and mouthfeel, but totally "musty" in taste. That's the most notable quality about this beer that I can mention. I had a couple, but it's not one that I'd buy again.

Part of a sweet mixed 6 pack new to BC . You get 3 Granville Island beers and 3 Creemore beers.

This is a cut above most Canadian lagers both in complexity and hops used. Not as grassy smelly as a Pils but not boringly sweet like most Canadian lagers. The colour is darker than the majority of beers in the style and the finish is dry with a long mouthfeel. Could drink this one all day.

Pours a clean orange-ish color with an off white head. In the aroma, mellow lager notes, but nothing more than average. In the taste, a small caramel like roast in an average lager. A small bite and a medium to lighter bodied mouthfeel, with a small dry caramel and small hop notes in the aftertaste. Not bad, but nothing more than average.

pours a too-clear dark yellow. This has obviously had the crap filtered out of it. Not much head, and what's there is white. Leaves some lacing on the glass on the way down. Nothing special here.

Smells of sticky honey'd malts, with a hint of spicy herbal hops. Whatever smells there are are faint.

Taste is fantabulous. Malts and hop bitterness is in perfect balance, leaving a clean, crisp dry finish. It's tilted towards the hoppy bitterness, but there's little hop *flavour*. I'd say this is quite similar to Pilsner Urquell in terms of sweet malt to bitter hop balance.

Mouthfeel is much bigger than typical for an american lager, and possibly a bit bigger than a bohemian pilsner even. It's smooth and refreshing, but definitely a 'present' beer with noticeable body. Very nice - both refreshing and satiating at the same time.

Overall - I like it. A lot. If I could only ever have one beer to drink forever, I'd have to consider this one. It's good from a flavour and a refreshing perspective. I do think I'd probably end up with some form of a bitter ale as a single beer if push came to shove, but I'd have to at least think about this one, too.
