A clean refreshing brew to enjoy in the blossoming days of Summer, Bee Sting derives much of its character from a substantial addition of local clover honey and Canadian Honey Malt. Deep straw in color (one might say honey-ish), Bee Sting is crisp and dry and light to medium bodied. Earthy, slightly citrusy Amarillo hops contribute a complimentary element to the honey overtones. A nuanced session beer perfect for backyard barbeques and Summer evenings on the porch.

Great summer lager. Clean and full bodied though not overwhelming in any way. Full mouthfeel, not much bite, but enough to balance the honied sweetness.

phaleslu (9415) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - AUG 6, 2012
Draft in a sampler at the brewpub. Pours a clear, bright gold color with a small white head that leaves a little lace in the glass. The aroma and flavor are equally faint- pale malts, straw, cereal, and just the lightest bit of honey sweetness. Light-bodied, with moderate carbonation and a smooth, sweet mouthfeel. Not a whole lot going on here but not bad.

Clear dark yellow with a fizzy white head. Honey bready and malty aroma and taste with a cereal grain finish.
