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.

3.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Tap, brewery. Pours a clear dark gold with a small wispy white head. The nose is sweet honey and pale malt with minimal hops. The flavor is rather sweet and bland, lots of honey. Mouthfeel is light, yet still a bit sticky with fizzy carbonation. Overall, a bit boring and bland, a little too sweet for my tastes.

Great Canadian Beer Festival – 2009 – Victoria BC
This was tasty with a good malt and hops addition. I liked the sweetness and the dry finish. It was a nice amber ale.

2.5 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 11/20
(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.

1.9 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 8/20
Not much here, a very light vague sweetness, like sugar water....a poor effort, why bother?

2.7 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Bottle. Pours an orange/brown with little head. Aromas of light toffee and malts. Flavours of biscuits, burnt honey and some toasted malt. Sweet. Not too impressive.

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 6/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
341 ml bottle. Clear golden yellow, white foamy head fades fully and completely. Sweet light malt aroma. Good honey content, biscuit malt taste, and not much else. Very soft carbonation bordering on flat, light bodied, low hopped. Ho-hum. Better straight from the bottle. LF (Lagerboy Friendly)

(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.
