2.7 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 11/20
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.

2.5 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
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.

3 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
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.

2.8 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
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.

2.8 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
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.

3.1 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Pours a dark amber colour with a bug foamy tan head that dissipates. Aroma is pretty much all honey and caramel. Taste is fairly sweet throughout with a quick bitterness towards the finish. Medium body, good carbonation, and thin but also smooth on the palate. A very serviceable amber ale.

2.4 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
Bottle from Firefly, Vancouver
Hazy amber color, with a bright hue, and almost no head. Light aroma and flavor, some caramel; thin body; low bitterness; honey is not the first ingredient that comes to mind for this beer.

2.8 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 12/20
It pours an amber color with an off white 1 finger head that quickly falls to a thin ring.
The aroma is nothing really that great, I am getting some and some light honey notes and some pine notes.
The flavor is overpowering sweet and somewhat similar to the aroma. I get solid amounts of carmel and when you combine that with all the honey, it is to much. It feels under hopped and has nothing to bring any kind of balance to the table.
It finishes with a very faint hops, it does have some metallic notes. This falls short of what could be a decent amber but still easy drinking. I would have to say the best part of this would be the label on the bottle.
