reebtogi (4088) - Edmonton, Alberta, CANADA - APR 21, 2013
Pint on tap at the Earlís Tin Palace location in Edmonton pours a pale golden color with a small white head that leaves very little lacing behind. Aroma is light grains and grass. Taste is a malty sweetness with a mild hop bitterness. A very uninspiring brew that I do not recommend to others.

bulldogops (1048) - Edmonton, Alberta, CANADA - AUG 30, 2009
On draught at Earlís South Edmonton Common. Clear pale amber pour, little foam, little retention. Aroma was citrusy and extremely sweet. Taste was very mild hint of honey, grains, and bitter grasses. Nothing exciting here, even the Sleemans and Rickards honey browns for the masses are better than this beer.

Powertrip (999) - Calgary, Alberta, CANADA - MAR 15, 2009
@Earls in Whistler, BC, Canada. It was served quite cold and had an extremely sweet profile to it. Truly did smell the honey though! Really not horrible but just tasted so crafted for the mass of drones, being a beer dominated by sugar...

bweezy (53) - Winnipeg, Manitoba, CANADA - MAY 25, 2008
Poured a nice deep amber, but little head. Ok aroma - sweet and grassy. Unremarkable taste

CapFlu (4475) - Victoria, British Columbia, CANADA - FEB 22, 2008
(Draught) Sampled at Earlís Restaurant on 16th Ave N in Calgary. Served in a frigid glass, the nose comes across as tonic and sweet as it warms. Minor hints of grainy malt with a small sampling of honey when you search for it. Oddly sweet and very watery. Not something Iíd recommend unless true water isnít available.

BeerPrince (1701) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - OCT 15, 2007
Light amber with minimum head. Aroma is malt with a touch of honey. Sugary and quite sweet with a sticky feel at the finish. A touch thin.

I spoke with the George Cziglan, the operations manager at Kamloops Brewery and he confirmed that the Pin-Up beers are made by KB, and even though two of them share similar names to the Earlís beers, they are brewed according to completely different recipes. I had this honey lager before going to a late movie around the corner. It is a deep clear amber brown with a dense off-white cap. It has a pleasing sweet caramel aroma. The flavour is of lightly roasted malt with a distinct honeyed sweetness (and I donít ordinarily agree that there is anything honey-ish about most honey lagers) and a mildly bitter finish to balance it out. Served at a nice temperature too, so that you could really appreciate that this beer had some flavour. Not bad at all! Iíd be interested in doing a side-byside tasting of this with itís Earlís cousin.
