3.1 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
650ml bottle. Pours golden finger of white lasting head, some lacing. Aromas of honey, chardonnay, toffee. Taste is sweet, not overly though, honey is present. Has crisp dryness from rye malt i’m thinking. It’s alright not allot to it.

UPDATED: OCT 16, 2014 Nice rye sourness, coupled with some honey sweetness. Hazy golden body, light funk nose, more rye sour in the taste. So much better than the German roggenbiers.

Golden with subdued but average head. Aroma of crystal malts but that is largely overshadowed by sweet honey. Not sure where the rye is in this? But, then again, my palate is messed.

Draft courtesy of the bee lady herself at the Calgary beer fest. Nice and not-too-sweet honey aroma with a taste os subtle almond and a dry finish. It works.

Tap @ Calgary Beer Fest. Pours clear gold with a medium, fizzy white head, medium retention with good lacing. Aroma is honey, biscuit malt, pear and apple esters. Flavor is malt, honey, light hops and bitterness with a dry finish. Medium body and carbonation.

Bottle. Not sure whether this qualifies as its own entry, but I’m not a local admin, so I’ll tick it. Medium golden coloured body, average white head. Toasty pale malts, genuine honey sweetness and character. No rye character for me whatsoever. Meh.

650ml bottle pours a golden color with a finger of white head that settles quite quickly to reveal some decent lacing on the glass. Aroma is cereal grains and mild honey. Taste is a grainy malty sweetness with a mild hop bitterness. More of a pale ale than a bitter, a decent brew, but not special and not really recommended.

Catch the rye but not any honey. Not expected. Don’t really like wheat beer styles but this was a pleasent surprise. I can’t remember the last rye beer I have tried but this was enjoyable. Crisp, dry, and thirst quenching. Finish doesnt linger too long.
