Ughsmash (7005) - Pewaukee, Wisconsin, USA - AUG 31, 2006
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.

Hooker (467) - Coquitlam, British Columbia, CANADA - JUN 27, 2006
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.

DuffMan (6162) - the land of bitumen, beef & beer, Alberta, CANADA - MAY 4, 2006
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.

HazelRah (276) - Summerland, British Columbia, CANADA - APR 22, 2006
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.

Trev (1841) - 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. Didn’t really get much honey. Musty earthy flavour with the honey flavor pretty low and not very sweet. Didn’t 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 it’s still my least fav. Fireweed so far. amended from 1.8 to a 2.0

Beerguys (50) - Calgary, Alberta, CANADA - JUN 3, 2005
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 (4533) - 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.

1.6
   AROMA 3/10   APPEARANCE 2/5   TASTE 3/10   PALATE 2/5   OVERALL 6/20
Oakes (11798) - 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.

2.6
   AROMA 5/10   APPEARANCE 3/5   TASTE 5/10   PALATE 3/5   OVERALL 10/20
Malakin (469) - Victoria, British Columbia, CANADA - MAY 27, 2004
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.
