Trev (2023) - Lakeville, Minnesota, USA - AUG 20, 2005
UPDATED: NOV 19, 2005 From the bottle: Pours a medium gold with a large foamy head. Biscuit aroma, yeasty. Didnít really get much honey. Musty earthy flavour with the honey flavor pretty low and not very sweet. Didnít particularly enjoy it. Not what I expected from a honey pilsner. Re-Rate: 3 months later. Maybe I was just so dissapointed in this beer I was a bit harsh. Flavour is a bit less offensive but itís still my least fav. Fireweed so far. amended from 1.8 to a 2.0

Beer poured with a nice foamy head. Golden in color. Light honey smell. Beer was very cold and tasted refereshing but almost anything would taste good after this work week

Fiend (104) - Calgary, Alberta, CANADA - MAR 16, 2005
UPDATED: JUN 3, 2005 While this beer had a nice head, clean aroma, light color and delicate taste...it simply was not what I would call a Pilsner. Filing this beer as a Pale Lager definitely suits the beer...and I think the upcoming name change should reflect the nature of this beer!

presario (4902) - Stampede City, Alberta, CANADA - JAN 29, 2005
Quickly dissipating head. Dark yellow. Faint clover honey aroma. Fair amount of metallic bitterness and light sweetness. Overall more like a macro-clone than micro-stretch.

Oakes (14830) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - JAN 24, 2005
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.

Malakin (469) - Victoria, British Columbia, CANADA - MAY 27, 2004
UPDATED: SEP 1, 2005 A fair bit of the usual youíd expect from a real Pilsener plus a slight honey taste, not much but itís there and itís pleasant, medium hop aroma. Overall a nice light beer.

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.

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.

Lubiere (12358) - Ottawa, Ontario, CANADA - OCT 13, 2003
Loose head, very thin in aroma and mouthfeel, with very little hops, this beer may still be too green.

CapFlu (5065) - Victoria, British Columbia, CANADA - OCT 2, 2003
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.
