COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Our fastest moving beer. A light wheat ale brewed with wild mountain honey. This produces a crisp well-balanced ale. This beer received the Gold Medal at Brewtopia’99.

jercraigs (7921) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - NOV 27, 2005
Bottle from Premier in Halifax. Pale yellow, massive white head initially made me fear infection but it shows no sign of such. Decent lacing on the glass.Sweet, floral grainy aroma. Flavour has a dry bitterness underneath a generic sweet middle. Inoffensive but dull. Average palate. Unpleasant astringence and bitterness grows as it warms.

Ughsmash (7154) - Pewaukee, Wisconsin, USA - AUG 31, 2006
On tap at Grizzly Paw. Poured a clear, paler golden with only a ring of white head. Nose was of honey and pale malty sweetness along with some wheat notes... almost skunky. Sweet honey and tart lemony-wheat in the flavor... rather mediocre. Creamy and fairly good feeling on the palate... with some odd tart notes. Not so good overall.

I had this while on the Silver Tip golf course in Canmore, which would make any beer taste that much better. Sweet and grainy with a sharp tanginess to the finish that really makes this a nice beer to drink on a hot day. One step above Grasshoppper by Big rock.

presario (4649) - Stampede City, Alberta, CANADA - AUG 19, 2003
Light gold. Crystal clear. No aroma. No head. Very light lacing. Light carbonization in the mouth feel. No honey in the taste. Slight yeastiness.

Ferris (4481) - Burnaby, British Columbia, CANADA - APR 2, 2013
Draft - Sweet grains, very mild. Clear gold minimal head. Honey notes come through, no real other flavours. Very thin and single dimensional. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

reebtogi (4239) - Edmonton, Alberta, CANADA - AUG 29, 2011
341mL bottle poured a golden color with small white head and little lacing. Aromas of wheat, yeast and a hint of honey. Taste is lightly sweet and has a surprising amount of bitterness in the finish. Light to medium body and mild carbonation. This is a pretty easy drinking beer to enjoy on a hot summer day out on the patio.

solidfunk (4168) - Washington D.C., Washington DC, USA - AUG 21, 2011
Sour like a lot of GP’s other beers, not much trace of honey, though. On tap on a taster at the Grizzly Paw

picks things up Nice floral honey nose, golden color, sweet honey taste with hints of wheat and a dry finish (gee all these beers are starting to taste the same)
