On tap at Red Card at Seymour/Smythe in Vancouver. What a thin, pale excuse for beer! Style is one thing, but hard to believe this is from the same brewery that makes Hermannator. Closest thing to water I’ve had in quite some time. Insipid.

Bottled sample at Yew in Vanvouver. Not as malty as I would have liked. Saaz hops shine through. OK Amber Ale

2 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
Nothing much going on - pale amber with a light sweetness in the nose. Taste is watery with a bit of honey sweetness. Mouthfeel far too light. Not offensive

2.6 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
(Small bottle from the brewery; you can buy them individually there) I love the name. They should have saved it for a hoppy beer, for the pun, but whatever. The honey flavour is definitely there, which is more than you can say for a lot of "honey" beers... the beer’s fairly tasteless overall, and I was expecting an English Brown but this has Continential hops... can’t complain, though, it’s ok. I guess it does START to make the leap from "thin" to "delicate". I suppose they’re brewing what Joe Shmo wants.

(Draught) Pint sampled at Garrick’s Head pub in Victoria. Fairly plain and inoffensive amber. Better than Sleeman’s but all in all lacking body. The honey sweetness underwhelms while a grainy watered body is pronounced.

brownish gold in colour with a hint of honey flavour that goes down smooth. not a whole lot else to note about the beer.

1.2 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 2/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 3/20
Bottle, sampled at Firefly Fine Wines and Ales, pours a light amber. Slightly sweet malty aroma and flavour, with a bit of honey. Overall, very weak and uninspired.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Bottle. Pours a light amber with a moderate white head. Sweet aroma, honey, flowers. Tastes of a sweet maltiness; notes of honey, flowers, caramel. Sweet / earthy hop bitterness. Finishes with a malty sweetness.
A good, malty beer...

1.8 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 3/20
Not a bad honey brown, but pretty common fare. Nothing special. Got is as part of a mixer-pack. Much prefer the Red AMber adn the Dark.

This was tasty with a good malt and hops addition. I liked the sweetness and the dry finish. It was a nice amber ale.
