COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
One of our original brands, this crisp flavourful wheat beer has been a spring board for many craft beer love affairs over the years. We add a special blend of Canadian barley and wheat malts for brisk clean flavour, spicy hops for balance, and bucket loads of local honey for its lovely floral aroma. John As Honey Wheat is an easy drinking light ale with great thirst quenching qualities.

jksipa (516) - Newmarket, Ontario, CANADA - AUG 18, 2014
500ml bottle from the LCBO. Cloudy pale gold with a tiny white head. Nose is faint honey and even fainter grain and spice. Taste is a little more forward with sweet honey and toffee start and a light bitterness in the middle quickly gone to a finish devoid of any character (I guess theyre right about the no aftertaste...). Thin watery mouth with soft carbonation.
