The flavor has some malt,honey,some grains. It feels pretty thin. I can’t say it’s unbalanced because there is not enough of anything to really stand out. When it comes to the aroma there is nothing special going on. I am getting some honey, sweet malt, floral notes. Pours a golden color with a nice white head that quickly vanishes to a thin ring. It has a ton of carbonation for the style It finishes with quite a bit of sweetness and the hops make a short appearance. I feel disappointed with this offering. This is suppose to be a pale ale but feels like a pale lager to me.

Pours a clear yellow. almost a lager smell to it. Very "dad" times reminiscent. Honey is there as promised. No hops to fight the sweet. Very nice summer beer.

Sask89 (417) - Regina, Saskatchewan, CANADA - JUL 31, 2010
Pours a clear pale yellow almost golden colour with a medium frothy white head. Aroma is of floral and citrus hops with a light grainy maltiness to it as well. Taste is of bread malts and a sweet honey like flavour with a mild bitter hoppy finish. Light body, average carbonation and smooth mouth feel. Overall a good drinking beer but nothing amazing.

Glory be to one litre swing-top bottles. If only they’d be a better fit in my little beer fridge... This one poured a smallish white head, maybe one finger’s worth but no more, and really no lacing to speak of. Colour is a medium gold. The aroma does indeed feature honey above all else, and was most pleasant. The taste was again of honey, but just enough to let you know that it was there and no more. Mouthfeel and aftertaste were "proper". Yeah, I’d like more of this one.

Fizzy and yellow, not a good start. Ok hop aroma. Low hop bitterness, low malty sweetness, watery. Very dry finish. Ok as a summer session but i know these guys can do better.
