UPDATED: JUL 16, 2009 The flavour and palate are what stonad out about this beer. Otherwise it would seem just another pilsner. The malt flavour comes on very mellow and finishes evenly with no abruptness in the flavour.

Clear, darker gold in colour with a smallish head. The nose was only a little hop and a little malt. Flavour was very average although decent enough, but the mouth was thinner than I’d like. Things faded away at the finish.

Let me start by saying I’m more of an ale guy. However, this is a clean, fresh brew. 500ml can. This one is neither as malty or as hoppy as the real Euro Pilseners I’ve had but then again it has it’s own charm. This beer is simple, it has no objectionable qualities and a nice, if mild hop flavour.

Beer looks slightly hazy pure gold with a one-inch noisy cap with not bad retention, for a pilsner this isn’t to shabby looking. Aroma seems mild and made from noticeable hops, and a dry wheatiness, smells ok but a touch to mild for my liking. Flavor is crisp and light comprised of mild citrusy hops, a nice light smooth malt character and finishes dry and clean. Nice simple brew that any one can enjoy yet still quality made, ok for BBQ’s and days at the beach. Review done while watching Hannibal rising.

2.6 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
Poured out a thick white cap that faded to a film. First whiff made me move my head away - similar to compost and very similar to all the rotting plant material that I cleaned out of the stagnant water stuck in my eavestroughs today. But, it does fade away in strength a bit. The veggie aroma is kind of annoying as it is mixed in with some floral and malty aromas. With that said there is some skunk. After it warms there is more of a malt presence that is pretty good. A touch fruity too. The review of the taste is being done after considerable warming. A little on the watery side, the hops stand out first followed by a decent malt backbone. Medium light bodied and fairly smooth with ample carbonation. Malty finish. Drinking this cold was terrible for my beersnob tastes. But once warmer I did enjoy it but would have to be in the mood for this exact style of beer before hopping into the car to get a case.
***review from when it was known as Honeycomb Pilsner***
(3.2) Light gold in appearance with an almost foggy look due to tons of the tiniest particles of sediment that never settle. Sweet honey, floral hops and malt dominate the soft aroma. Slightly sweet, a dry mild hoppy flavor is prominent which i found just a bit tart leaving the mouth dry and a bit sour.. The hops biterness comes out more when it warms. A very easy drinking beer. The belches were world-class. I didn’t drink this with my beercronic clone, but probally should have. Ha! We rated it the same! Must be my schizophrenia kicking in...either that or the micro dots....

Light, refreshing, attractive looking not much going on taste wise. standard classic american pilsener good for a hot summers day. Suprisingly good hop profile though for this style. easily the best pilsner in BC. thats not saying much though.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Pours a lightly hazed gold with a tight white 2 finger cap that lasts well and laces.
Aroma is woodsy-botanical with some robust bread dough malt tones and just a kiss of green apple.
Soft mouth feel silky delivery.
Up front the bready malts mingle with the woody-leafy hallertauer and spalter hops, lovely soft mineral palate, finishes in perfect balance between biscuity malts, earthy hops and soft mineral mouth from the water.
A great summer patio lager...not really in the Czech style, ...more like a soft Bavarian pilsner made with old style hop varieties...excellent! I’m a lager head and I could drink oceans of this at a session.

A: Clean, pale golden / straw coloured. White, sudsy head could retain a little better but doesn’t totally fall short at all.
A sweet kiss of malts, with an added touch of citrus hops - almost more of a ’cleaning formula’ type citrus, but I don’t find those to taste horrid, so it works out okay.
Comes across as a bit too malty. A little earthy, and an herbal hoppiness that is a little unbalanced against the malt presence.
Body is lighter, as it should be, but there is still a bit of a stickiness that is a little out of place.
Easy on the alcohol, as it should be. Probably not a choice I’d make, but a reasonable brew for the sake of drinking it without expecting much.
