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.

Oakes (12789) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - FEB 5, 2005
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.

í1L fliptop from Bottles and Bins in Monterey, CA. Pours orange gold with a white head. Aroma is light hop with a touch of honey. Med minus body. Nice light drink. Finishes mildly bitter. Honey is not obnoxious.

JoeMcPhee (8551) - Toronto, ON, Ontario, CANADA - JUL 2, 2004
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.

UPDATED: JUN 3, 2011 Pours golden brown with a white head. Aroma is honey, sweet malts and caramel. Flavour follows accordingly. Nothing too special.

DuffMan (7028) - the land of bitumen, beef & beer, Alberta, CANADA - APR 8, 2008
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.

marcus (6773) - Sacramento, California, USA - APR 2, 2012
Bottle shared by bhensonb. Pours clear golden with a decent off-white head and a toffee aroma. There is a light pale malt flavor with a subtle addition of honey sweetness. A nice session beer.

Beershine (5218) - The Sunshine State, Florida, USA - NOV 1, 2007
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.
