Smells of honey and hops. Pours a cloudy amber colour. Fizzy head that hangs around the edges. Slight hoppy taste with spice and hint of honey.

750 mL swingtop bottle. Bottle says 5%. Overpackaged - this is too much bottle for this beer. Amp this up to 8.5% and make it more interesting, THEN put it in a big swingtop. It’s not horrible - better than the mainstream honey-browns certainly. Smells better than it tastes. You can actually taste the remnants of the honey. Still. Not necessary to go back to this one. There’s too much of it to start with.

Tessic (906) - Brantford, Ontario, CANADA - DEC 29, 2012
This trad ale poured a dark amber colour with a bright white, soapy head. Scents include ligght vinegar, caramel and bread. First sip was medium bodied with flavours of honey and malt with additional flavours of cereal. Finish of honey and vinegar. eh?

King/Spadina LCBO Outlet (Toronto, Ontario, Canada)

Beer pours a mahogany colour with a thin tan ring for a head. Aroma is nutty malt, caramel, and weak hops. Mouthfeel is medium bodied with medium carbonation. Flavour has the honey in it, some tart fruit notes, along with some grass and a weak bitter finish. Not bad, but I wouldn’t try it a second time.

cfrancis (2510) - Ottawa, Ontario, CANADA - DEC 17, 2012
Pours a dark brown with a tinge of orange and a small off white ring and good lacing. Aroma is sweet honey and earthy hops. Taste is a little muddled. Definitely a load of sweet honey and sweet earthy and caramel hops. I wouldn’t go back.

sseb69 (1560) - Gatineau, Quebec, CANADA - DEC 16, 2012
Bouteille 750 ml. 5%. Couleur cuivrée foncé, mousse beige pâle mince et fugace. Arôme assez faible de malt sucré. En bouche, malt, un peu de bois et de miel...assez mince et aqueuse...je m’attendais à plus de corps. Finale douce et agréable. En somme, mince mais buvable.

Spab (2573) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - DEC 16, 2012
750 ml bottle from LCBO. Pours a orangey dark brown with smallish tan head. Aroma is light honey, biscuit and grass with a hint of citrus. Flavour is biscuit, grass, gentle citrus, with a little sweetness from the honey. Average body. Nothing special.

Gorbalev (2957) - Ontario, CANADA - DEC 14, 2012
Swing top big bottle, LCBO. Pours dark brown with copper notes, little head. Aroma is mild with hints of honey and malt. taste is decent as well - nice balanced malt and sweet taste, hint of honey, hint of hops. A bit peppery in finish. A really easy to drink beer that comes off quite mild but pleasant.

Pint at The Loon. Described as "Honey Stung Pale". Hopefully this is the right spot of the rating. 13MA12. Clear deep golden with a decent off-white head. Light nose, some grassy hops, biscuity malt, tight. Medium body and carbonation. Decent peppery hops, light malts, not bad; dry with some bitterness and a clean, biscuit malt and peppery hops finish. Seems like a nice lager rather than an ale.
