1L Flip-top bottle. Pours a pale leyyow with a moderate white head, lots of carbonation. Aroma: Sweet, floral. Tates: malty, notes of hay, caramel, vanilla. Some hop bitterness, herb-like. Finishes grassy. Pretty good; a good ’gateway beer’ to craft beer.

Clear light golden color with a taller, slowly diminishing heavy cream colored head. Herbal to grassy hops scent, much like an import lager. Hint of perfume behind. Lightly sweet in the front. Pale grains and dough. Hints of alcohol. To me, it seems that the honey dried things out and this has some qualities/characteristics of a stronger euro lager. Slightly odd coming from a honey pale ale. 6/10

Oh ya, it’s a constant struggle gettin’ up that hill... and pouring this huge bottle into a little glass. But it pours all right, some decent head, yellow body as typical for lager beers and a bit of carbonation. Lots of sweetness on the nose, maybe some hints of a lager flavour. It’s a very sweet ale, probably too sweet, as the honey dominates everything. No complexity and unbalanced. Okay dry finish. I’d prefer a little more complexity and balance. I’ll still finish this 1 litre bottle though.

An okay pale ale, but nothing stands out for me. Had mild, uninteresting hop notes with sweetness of honey clouding most of the other flavours. Easy drinking but would not have it again.

Draft - Lots of grains. Clear gold with a decent white head. Grains and a light sweetness. Easy drinking, but boring.

Pours a clear golden yellow with small but persistent white foam head. Aroma is gentle, a whiff of honeyed bread in another room. Taste manages the nice feat of being honeyed without being cloying. There is a lemon accent along with bread and butter. The hops are just enough to add a hint of bitterness without upending the flavors. The palate here is not complex, but it shows what can be done with simple elements well controlled. I approached this skeptically, but it’s another thoughtful offering from Howe Sound: sweetish but not cloying, creamy but refreshing.

exeter (511) - calgary, Alberta, CANADA - DEC 31, 2014
Poured a hazy yellow-amber with visible suspended particles. The head is thin white and leaves faint lacing. Taste is light cereal, honey and herbal hops. Very carbonated. It’s ok, but not spectacular.

Easy to drink beer and very refreshing pale ale. Nice aroma, lightly hopped, and great improvement on the graphics.

Pours a golden color with a quickly dissipating white head. Smells of honey (duh). It tastes a bit too carbonated to me. Ok beer, good for summer. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Inoffensive but bland. A little honey, a little malt, a touch of grass but tastes like it’s on mute.

Lagerboy (1962) - British Columbia, CANADA - MAR 27, 2014
1 litre potstopper. Clear golden yellow, smaller firm white lasting foam. Muted sweet malt aroma. Not too sweet honey malt taste, mild hop bitterness, some lemony citrus, a bit buttery/bready. Average carbonation, light-medium bodied, lightly hopped. A clean and simple honey blonde which is : MLF (More Lagerboy Friendly)
