1.8 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 7/20
Bottled. Poured a clear, bright lighter golden with a short-lived cap of white head. Nose was of honey, corn syrup, and veggie compost... not at all appetizing. Flavor found the veggies at the forefront... followed by the corn syrup, a hint of honey, and a mild herbal bitterness... just a little better than the nose, but still not good. Light-bodied and spritzy with high carbonation. No good.

2.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
Clear gold colour with thick stark white head and lots of small bead. Sweet malt nose. Sweet malt and honey taste with fast fading bitter finish.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Golden yellow, moderate head. Aromas of pale malt and soft honey. More true malt flavour than macro pale lagers, a little sweet with some gentle hop character. Nice for a pale lager.

2.5 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 7/20
Aroma of honey and blossoms. Gold with good fluffy head and abundant lace. Some light malt and honey in the mouth, quite sweet in fact, but the best part of this one was the aroma.

2 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
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

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!

1.9 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 7/20
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.

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 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.
