According to the marketing copy I found about this beer, the ‘Lot 9’ refers to an ‘almost unfarmable’ lot of land purchased by the original owners of Creemore.
While their traditional beer is a lager, they are calling this one a pilsner. A pilsner is a German style of beer that uses lager yeast but generally has a little more flavour than an American lager.
It should be noted that while all the marketing might hint at otherwise, Creemore Springs (and anything under that brand) is owned by Molson Coors.
You can purchase a can at the LCBO for $2.90 and it sits at just 4.7% ABV.
Appearance: Beautiful golden colour. The colour that made people switch to glass cups. Nice thick pure white head.
Aroma: A dark maltiness. Bread notes but very light.
Taste: Very malt forward. It’s like I’m chewing on bread. Almost no hops to balance it out. It’s grassy and earthy. The carbonation is very light. It has none of the spiciness that the BJCP describes as being in the style.
Aftertaste: Basically none to speak of.
Overall: A great representation of style. Not super exciting but certainly enjoyable.
