1.6 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 6/20
Dark straw colour. Aroma is largely grainy, with some slightly sweaty yeast notes. Bland palate - hints of grain and earthy hop. Low bitterness. Sweetish, bland finish. No honey. No pilsner. Just boring, boring beer.

UPDATED: SEP 1, 2005 A fair bit of the usual you’d expect from a real Pilsener plus a slight honey taste, not much but it’s there and it’s pleasant, medium hop aroma. Overall a nice light beer.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
A real interesting Idea and some people may really like this one.
on the pour:Very light gold,small white head,the nose is malt yeast and a back ground of honey.
on taste:Mild,clean and perhaps a little bland,the honey is really just nearly noticeable and makes for an unusual tasting pilsner.It is under-hopped,but only a little(hey they called it a pilsner,not a lager).the middle is slightly musty and then it drys out,no noticeable aftertaste.
Body: it is thicker then your average pil due to the honey,and they did not hold back on the bubbles.
I like it,kudo's to the brewer for trying something different.

2.7 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 11/20
Pale golden yellow with white head and some lacing. Crisp zesty hop aroma with faint malt. Slightly floral. Good malty taste and a crisp aromatic finish. Fairly thin bodied but still refresing.

2 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
Loose head, very thin in aroma and mouthfeel, with very little hops, this beer may still be too green.

1.9 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 8/20
UPDATED: SEP 14, 2006 (Bottle) Amber body with a medium, frothy white head. Slightly sweetened nose - likely the honey. Nothing special - an overly sweetened lager? Below average.

2.5 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
Gold body with head. Little aroma, I guess it was slightly sweet. Flavour was sweeter but I didn't notice the honey per se. Was syrupy.

I didnt like the flavour at all. Looked a little hazy, nice color, no head, decent carbonation. Too sweet in a bad way as well.

Kind of reminds me of hemp beer. Must be the use of 'weed' in the name that's throwing me off, eh? As an aside, people in Vancouver really do say "eh", but they do not call each other "hosers" as the film "Strange Brew" would lead you to believe. But back to the beer - possesses a sweet smell and a tad more flavor than an ordinary lager. In a 10-lager tasteoff, I'd say this came in above average.
