bottle: Honey Red was a little too sweet for my palate. However, I must say that it was not a negative experience. Poured a deep amber colour with a quickly dissipating head and lots of carbonation. Strong malt smells and sweet honey taste. Sweet aftertaste lingers a bit. Not bad but not great J.R. Brickman Pilsner is far superior.

Malty honey aroma. Light brown color, not much head. Finishes fairly clean. Don’t like it much, but honey beers admittedly aren’t my thing.

Medium amber in colour with a fair bit of carbonation. Aromas of caramel malts, a bit of bread, and floral honey. Very sweet in the mouth with a ton of honey flavor and a bit of grainy malt. Thankfully, the beer dries out quite quickly, and there’s a fairly nice crisp finish. Any hop aroma of flavor gets kinda lost, and might have lent a bit more complexity. Not a bad effort for a North American amber lager, but a more hopped up one would have been far more interesting. Thanks pootz!

Lightly hazed reddish amber with a thick creamy off white head. A sweet honey and cloves aroma, not unpleasant. In mouth, a cloying sweet beer with crisp hops, some metallic notes, and lasting bitterness. Too sweet for me.

VEry good. IT has an aroma a little greasy. The taste is strong and a little honey alike. Good foam too.

TFOB 2006. Dark amber body, small white head. Sweet honey and malt aroma. Sweet flavour is prominently honey and moderate malt. Average palate. Nothing wrong with it per se, but it does not do much for me. Fairly mainstream.

At the brewery. Their new amber with a drop of honey. Reddish colour. Honey esther and malty. Too sweet and too overcarbonated. Bubbles in the yeasty head nice to look at. We need another beer with honey? For the general public.I will try the pasteurized in bottle in case it is better.

Bottle- Pours a deep amber coloured body with a good sized lasting froth. Aromas are all malt and brown sugar with some honey and bread. Sweet malty with some actual honey flavours and the slightest bittering hops. Finish is sweet and tasty. All in all this is enjoyable. A good summer beer. Another winner in the founder’s series.

Bought a six pack for Father’s Day, had most for myself. Looks and smells pretty good, nice head and quite robust I must say. Had a more caramel/toffee than honey taste but a nice smooth finish nonetheless.
