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.

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 (1474) - 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.

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 (2905) - 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.

probstblueribbon (2853) - Nepean, Ontario, CANADA - DEC 10, 2012
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.

pootzboy (1578) - Hawgville, Ontario, CANADA - DEC 1, 2012
On tap at Imbibe: Pours a deep gold ale in the glass with a puffy 3 finger white cap. Aroma is resinous and citrus with cereal tones - not much honey detectable in the nose. Flavour is bright, hoppy, citrusy and pleasantly bitter in the PacNW pale ale style, decent balance with the pale malts, clean, drying, bitter finish. Still not detection of "honey". As an APA it’s a decent sessionable example but if they were looking for a honey enhanced brew here that failed. Even so it’s about the best I’ve tasted yet from this brewer. I followed this with a Lone Pine IPA and it was hard to tell them apart.

Tiger_08 (137) - Sarnia, Ontario, CANADA - NOV 12, 2012
Nov 9 2012. On tap at Fusion Tasting event in sarnia. Pours light, clear mahogany with creamy off-white head. Head fades to ring and leaves good lacing. Aroma is light honey and apple sweet with hint of pepper. Taste is similar. Sweet but light with hint of spice in finish. Drank with various wines so will have to try a pint for update.

[4557-20120622] Tap. Boozy toasted malt aroma has a burnt caramel note to it. Clear amber red body with a long-lasting creamy off white head. Sweet grainy malt flavour has a brulee sweetness that is not appealing. Medium body. A little burnt, actually. (6/4+/6/3/12) 3.1
(2012 Summer FOCB @ C’est What, Toronto, ON)

blankboy (5948) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - JUL 23, 2012
Draught at C’est What Summer Festival of Craft Breweries, June 22. Pours a hazy amber with a small lasting creamy off-white head. Aroma of caramel malt, fruit and grain. Flavour is quite mild, there’s not a lot of flavour -- some malt, grain and honey but it’s pretty "meh". Average bodied. A little too dull for me.
