2.6 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 11/20
Draught at the brewpub
Deep blond color. At first it shows some nice hop aroma, but it disappears quickly, the some very light honey aroma. It’s a simple Ale, with smoothened corners, a bit sweet.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bright golden colour. Slightly honeyish aroma with hints of wonderbready pale malt. Light pale with hints of toasty malt but mainly bread and slight honey, which is mostly in the light, sweet finish.

2.4 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
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.

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 aren’t 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 Sound’s beers have. Honey beers aren’t usually my thing, though. It’s not that this one is sweet, it’s just not interesting enough for me. A little of that diacetyl stuff is noticable in this one too.
