dfinney23 (1423) - Houston, Texas, USA - OCT 15, 2013
Not bad for a pale lager. Faint honey aroma. A bit of malt and very lightly sweet. I think I read somewhere that Death drinks a pale lager.

Metalchopz (2119) - Cantley, Quebec, CANADA - OCT 8, 2013
Part of the 12-pack Summer Mangler at The Beer Store. Pours a clean amber colour with a frothy warm cap that has average retention, but some good creamy lacing. Big cereal grain malt aromas with some caramel notes and a touch of sweetness from the honey. Very mild flavours of bread with the malts, honey and light bitterness from the hops. Not bad, but lacking a little punch and authentic taste.

Spab (2124) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - SEP 26, 2013
341 ml bottle from the Beer Store (part of summer mix pack). Pours a clear golden orange with moderate-sized white head. Aroma is caramel, grains and light honey. Flavour has modest sweetness with very gently toasty caramel, mild graininess and touches of sweet honey. Average body. Nothing wild but decent, simple lager.

Boutip (4490) - Gatineau, Quebec, CANADA - AUG 14, 2013
Draft: Poured a golden/amber color lager with a medium size foamy head with OK retention. Aroma consists of light malt presence with light sweet notes form honey. Taste is also dominated by light caramel notes with sweet honey finish. Body is about average with good carbonation. This is almost closer to a Vienna then a straight lager but refreshing nonetheless with limited amount of complexity.

ljthiessen (159) - Winnipeg, Manitoba, CANADA - JUL 23, 2013
Bottle. Clear gold pour with a dense off-white head. Light coppery, malty aroma with honey and a bit of citrus. Flavour is malty, metallic, a little bit floral with a touch of honey. The flavour here is alright - unfortunately there’s just not much of it.

monk191 (722) - California, USA - JUL 19, 2013
Nice honey aroma. Taste is crisp and sweet but pretty boring. A good drink for a hot day but not much beyond. Really lacks complexity and is a fairly uninteresting beer. Had on tap at the Spaghetti Factory in Vancouver. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

koppertone (43) - Alberta, CANADA - JUL 3, 2013
Sort of average for a honey lager. Minimal head pours brown. Tastes malty and just a touch of sweetness and caramel/honey. It is alright and I tend to buy it now and again for nostalgia’s sake, but I don’t think it’s anything to really get excited about. Probably on par with a Sleeman.

I’ve always loved Granville Island Brewery - to me it’s inexplicable how they live in the shadow (like other local greats such as Okanagan Springs and Vancouver Island Brewery) of the horrific beers of Phillips Brewery. But I digress. Cypress Honey Lager is a crisp and refreshing honey lager that sidesteps the sugary overkill of Sleeman’s Honey Brown, and goes for subtle sweetness instead. Attractively amberish in colour, with a decent foamy head on it. Aroma is slight hops, a mix of honey, pine, and grain. Flavor is crisp, slightly bitter at first, with a lingering sweet aftertaste of a hint of honey. Palate is not too thin, no over-carbonation. An excellent choice for a hot day, and my second favorite in the Granville line-up of beers.
