JoeZasada (285) - Beaumont, Alberta, - SEP 1, 2011
Bomber bottle from brewery. Pours a clear reddish amber with a lasting light tan head. Aroma: minimal, some yeast. Taste: malty, some bread, a tiny bit of sweetness, moderate body, moderate cabonation. Finishes with an earthy bitterness. Kind of a plain, average amber ale. Well made, but doesn’t really set a direction - nothing here to stand out above the other average amber ales.

Funky aroma with some sour honey notes. Pours a deep amber with no head or lacing. Flavour of funk and honey. Meh.

Rating #794 - December 1, 2013, 650ml bottle from Athlone Liquor. 5%. Clear, copper ale, nice, moderate white foam. Aroma is caramel, floral honey. Taste is wild honey, toasted malt, little caramel, fairly sweet. Nice. And punny.

andrewturba (962) - Alberta, CANADA - JUN 23, 2013
Pours a clear copper with maderate white foam. Aroma is bready, caramel, floral, and honey sweetness. Tastes of honey, honey off flavours, bready, and a mild different(not in a great way) kind of bitterness.

TheRatKing (114) - Alberta, CANADA - OCT 31, 2012
Bottle into my customary Tulip. Nice amber colour, rich tawny-white head that seems disinclined to fade. Aroma is slightly floral, a hint of ginger in there too, for some reason. Flavour is fairly bland; medium mouthfeel, sweetness from the malt some balance with the hops. Finish is a bit bready. Good for a honey ale I suppose, but I like flavour that kicks me in the teeth and kneels on my neck.

mdnguyen (31) - Calgary, Alberta, CANADA - JUL 30, 2012
The pour: a reddish-gold in colour with cream coloured head with moderate lacing. The aroma: mostly malty with a strong note of sugar, slight notes of caramel, and honey. The taste: the honey does add a nice richness to the beer. Overall, it starts sweet and evolves into a sour taste. A small amount of bitterness is detectable as well. A thin but sticky mouth feel. The verdict: I’m a fan of honey and this is a nice drink for sure, however, it could use a bit more depth.

reebtogi (4151) - Edmonton, Alberta, CANADA - JUL 6, 2012
650ml bottle pours a pale amber color with a small white head that leaves only a trace of lacing on the glass. Aroma is mild cereal grains with hints of light fruit and mild hops. Taste is light malty and fruit sweetness and a light hop bitterness. Light bodied and mildly carbonated. Slightly below average brew for the style, but still refreshing.

Lagerboy (1217) - British Columbia, CANADA - MAY 30, 2012
Clear light honey copper, foamy off white head settles and lasts. Bready honey sweet malty aroma and taste, some caramel. Average carbonation, light bodied, low hopped. Thins out a bit and sours as it warms. Expected more from Mt. Begbie. LF (lagerboy Friendly)

patricks110 (1620) - Alberta, CANADA - JAN 31, 2012
Notes from June 28, 2011. The pour is a light brown in the body with a thick foamy beige head that subsides almost instantly. The nose is sweet honey, sugary malts and a bit of perceived hops. A bit over sweet in the middle with prevalent honey and a light caramel, bready malt. The finish has a bit of astringent bitterness and a thin drinking mouthfeel. Overall, very average.
