750ml bottle from the lcbo. Dark amber pour, small beige head. Faint hop aroma, light sweet malts. Pretty boring and basic. The honey imparts a light sweetness, but i think its just adding some color and not much else. The finish is lightly bitter, with some more light cereal malts.

Light reddish brown pour with a white head that faded quick. Very weak scent. I expected something sweeter. Actually not bad and very easy to drink. A bit grassy. Something bitter in the finish I don’t really like.

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.

aroma is a hint of honey and hops, tastes of light hops with a honey finish and a hint of citrus. is a medium amber in appearance with light frothy head, was a decent tasty surprise

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 (1036) - 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?

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 (3136) - 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.

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.
