2.3 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
Slightly hazy bright gold, lacey white head. Sweet pale malt aroma. Lagery pale malt palate, on the sweeter end with discernable honey character. Sweet lagers just arenít my thing really.

2.9 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Honey hue is nice. Good head as many of Howe Soundís beers have. Honey beers arenít usually my thing, though. Itís not that this one is sweet, itís just not interesting enough for me. A little of that diacetyl stuff is noticable in this one too.

4.4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
I enjoyed this brew at the inn itself in Squamish and raved about it. Okay, I had three bottles but please donít let the wife know....I was happy to find it at the park royal liquor store a few weeks later at which time I bought six of the large one litre bottles to take home to the mrs (and others)...
back to the beer itself, it was a clean, refreshing product with a nice honey nose, and Iím not talking about the nice waitress tho her nose was cute too....the beer had a real nice malt character to it...it sure poured a nice head with a good fine carbonation---not too gassy like Iíve tasted amongst the commercial beers....
this is a great beer well worth tasting (over and over)

2.4 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
Mild butterscotch, plenty of honey, some biscuity malts and floral hop notes in the aroma. Clear, deep, golden body is topped by a fair sized white head that recedes rapidly to a lasting cover leaving some frothy lacing on the sides of the glass. Biscuity and grainy malt character with some toffee and butterscotch. Light bitterness and floral hop notes. Fruity esters emerge mostly in the aftertaste. Light medium body with sharp carbonation and rather slick and watery texture. Butterscotch becomes more apparent in especially in the nose but also in the flavour as it warms. Pint glass. Just above fridge temperature. Bottle (Brewery Creek, Dec-06).

(Draught) Sampled at the brewpub on December 9, 2006. No carbonation. Deep amber body. Nose is overly buttery. Flavour is like rolling a a stick of butter. Terrible.

Light golden colour, thin white head. Light malt aroma, floral and honey character as well. Body is fairly thin. Flavour is okay, light malt, faint sweetness, and a very clean finish. A good, if typical brew.
