Draught at Fiebre de Malta, Mexico City. Clear deep golden, small head. Mild citrus and bread up front. Mid sweet with medium body and soft mouthfeel. Bread, lychee and floral citrus in a laid back mix. Mid bitter finish. Tasty, laid back and thoroughly well made.

Oakes (13139) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - DEC 8, 2014
Amber and a bit hazy. Thin head. The aroma has sweet honeyish notes, and a bit of biscuity, grainy character. A reasonably full body for the style, balancing the biscuity pale malt character, a touch of toastiness and a prominent honey note. Decent balance, for a sweet amber it’s not bad at all, and I appreciate how it showcases the honey, but I’m never going to get that excited about a sweet amber ale.

bhensonb (11919) - Woodland, California, USA - JUL 14, 2008
Bomber from South Bay Drug. Amber color with a head that went away quickly. Aroma of sweet, honey, malt. Near full bodied with mild carbonation. Flavor is malt, light honey, and hop. This is a surprising ale. Honey, but not sicky sweet. Finish is neither dry nor sweet, and it’s fairly balanced. Actually pleasant to drink. A substantial ale. How unexpected.

Bottle. Poured clear copper color with an average off-white frothy head that mostly lasted with good lacing. Moderate balanced earthy aroma. Medium body with a slick texture and soft carbonation. Medium bittersweet flavor with a medium bittersweet finish of moderate duration. Drinkable brew.

Lubiere (10700) - Ottawa, Ontario, CANADA - NOV 15, 2014
A golden amber ale with a thin off white head. In aroma, sweet caramel malt with light honey notes, butterscotch, OK. In mouth, a sweet fruity caramel malt with light mineral notes, light honey, OK. Bottle at El Deposito.

Bottle poured a clear amber with a lingering ring of ivory foam. Aromas of honey, light carmel and a hint of fruittiness. Palate was light bodied and crisp with a drty finish. Flavors of straw, honey and light carmel with a smooth dry carmely finish.

Well holy shit this beer looks like honey, smells like honey and tastes like honey. Crazy. Not really that great, but if you like honey then give this one a try.

MartinT (8328) - Montreal, Quebec, CANADA - NOV 20, 2014
My Bottom Line:
This very fruity Honey Ale adds orangey hops and their herbal bitterness to the mix, delivering a dryish, drinkable experience.

Further Personal Perceptions:
-A veil of foam tops the honeyed amber shine.
-Cereals appear within, creating balance.
-This is well made, but also forgettable.
-Floral notes ride the prickly carbonation.

Bottle.

mcberko (8115) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - FEB 1, 2015
355mL bottle, pours a clear amber orange with a small white head. Aroma is mild, with notes of honey, light hops, and some biscuity malt. Flavour is mild, with not much to it -- just some honey, light bittering hops and biscuity malt. Clean and drinkable, but boring. Acceptable.
