The aroma is bitter and boring but the colour and taste are quite nice. It has a smooth smokey taste with a caramel finish

Lots of honey. 40lbs used to brew 1 batch. Nice and malty with subtle smoke flavour. Pours dark brown wih nice lacing. Honey is very present! Yummy

Sampled at Forest City Beer Fest. High honey & high booze. Golden boldness.

Pours a deep red/amber with a short lived off white head. Aroma of burn sugars, honey, wet grass, roast pork and bathroom. The flavours are burnt sugars and honey, caramel, slight spicey hop note. Easy drinking, but not super entertaining.

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.

Bottle at Ontario Brewing Awards. Deep amber pour. Off-white head. The aroma is sweet and a little bit chewy. A touch of caramel and some sweet fruity character. Lightly earthy with a touch of fruit. Lingering estery character. Pretty nice really.

Pours a dark amber, with a foamy tan head. Aroma notes include honey, caramel, and cracker malt notes. Tasting notes include honey, and toffee. Sweet, but not cloiying. The palate is a little thin, and has a smoked honey finish. Not bad, very drinkable.

Wow, what a surprise this was. Assumed this was going to be light fruity beer but it pours a dark amber. Clearly I’m an idiot. Pretty decent though. Probably would’ve been rated higher if I actual wanted a darker beer.

Strong taste of barley on this one. Good pour with average lacing, brown amber colour. Taste has more barley than honey, a good dose of bitter. Has an odd aroma, a sense of perfume almost. Tap at cloak and dagger.

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.
