Looks like a beer, Iím feeling lazy tonight so thatís all the effort Iím throwing into the way this beer looks. Aroma is ok with sweet honey, metallic hops, something like funky foot sweat but not. Sweet honey malt flavor with a surprising amount of bitter hops. The brew sure isnít lacking in flavor it fairly bold. I hit lemon zest on some sips but not too often. Brew gets very bready when warm, flavor was better while cooler thatís for sure. This beer is good, very drinkable.

Bottle. Pours a golden yellow with a thin white head. Spicy aroma; pepper notes. Tastes of wheat - dry-ish though, with notes of grass and cloves. Finishes with a moderately bitter earthiness. Interesting beer...

Reviwed on tap. Bottle sucked! This stuff looked like dark apple juice with its medium gold apperance and had a small white cap. Wheat and honey is what you get on smell and itís quite sweet. I was suprised how much I liked the aroma considering the sweetness. Nice wheat taste, some malts that were on the slighty roasted side and interesting spicy honey (probally the hops). Light to medium bodied, fairly dry with a decent bitter aftertaste. Tasty beer!

The clean finish stands out when you have this one. Plain aroma, malt and yeast, nothing special. Pours quite clear, just a hint of red to it, a bit of head, not much lacing. Nice even sweet flavour, I can taste a bit of raspberry or wildflower in there somewhere, maybe from the wild mountain honey. I almost canít belive they donít throw in a reference to the Steve Miller Band with that one. Just a twinge of bubbles and then its gone, a bit of sweet taste is all thatís left. Pretty good, my friend bout it and told me it was lower priced.

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.

reebtogi (4100) - 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.

Sample at Edmonton Festival of beer, from 341ml brown bottle. Pale gold, faint white bubbles on the surface. Nose is sweet, floral with detectable honey. Flavour is grainy with honey sweetness. Finish is dry and grainy. Medium bodied and lightly carbonated.

piscator34 (1949) - Winnipeg, Manitoba, CANADA - MAY 17, 2012
On draft at the brewpub. Light gold in colour (slightly darker than their pilsner), with medium carbonation. Aromas are of faint pale malt with a hint of sweet floral honey. A mild blend of pilsner and malted wheat flavour, along with a bit more honey and a faint nutty note. Medium bodied with a slick wheaty mouthfeel. A bit bland.

Rating #866 - December 29, 2013 - Had this on tap at the brewery in Canmore last time I was in town - Hazy golden pour, but haziness fades as sediment seperates, leaving a bubbly lager appearance. Aroma has floral honey sweetness, grainines Taste is pretty much the same, a honey malty dominance with hints of wheat character built in (wheat, citrus, etc.)Finish is dry and crisp. This beer is light and refreshing, and would make an excellent patio beer.
