Whistler really is bear country and itís quite common to meet a hungry bear on the Whistler Valley Trail. Which is fine, unless you happen to be carrying a Whistler Bear Paw Honey Lager; Ďcause we all know bears love real honey, right??? Our honey lager is fresh-brewed and fermented with 100% organic BC honey, so you can actually smell the honey aromas and taste silky smooth honey on the finish. Itís a very unique lager experience. So grab a 6-pack next time you visit the brewery Ė just make sure you donít walk home via the Whistler Valley Trail.
Note: Formerly Whistler Altitude Honey Lager.

Vancouver, BC, on tap at The Hub Restaurant. Dark copper pour, snow white head, nice film of lacing. Aroma has some honey accents, a hint of butterscotch. Flavor is sweet, some honey goodness, a touch of butterscotch, some vanilla in the back end. Smooth mouthfeel. Rating #38 of my 2016 vacation.

Malts, sweet breads, plenty of honey. Iím having trouble deciding if this one is too sweet for me.

Bottle, pours a clear copper orange with a small white head. Aroma and flavour brings out notes of honey, bready malt and some residual sweetness from the honey and malt. Quite nice for a shitty lager.

YigSvartka (296) - Manitoba, CANADA - DEC 7, 2014
Nice head after pour, but limited retention. Translucent copper/brown. Mediocre lager scent with addition of mild caramel. Extremely smooth and thin. Although honey is certainly present, there is a lack of robustness of anything else. Absolutely no hop, very minimal malt, and more carbonation would be preferred. Impressive honey flavour, but becomes tedious after several sips.

Metalchopz (3095) - Cantley, Quebec, CANADA - OCT 29, 2014
Part of the BC Craft Brewers Guild Natural Selections 6 pack (2014). Pours a clean amber colour with a light-beige head that stays a little and creates foamy-streaking lacing. Lots of apples for aromas at first. Then, rye grain comes out with some hints of hops and sweet honey. The taste is mild, but has all the characteristics of the nose. Caramel comes out in both after breathing, but everything does not get too sweet, which makes this one a decent honey lager.

bottle. Poured clear brown with a thin white head. Sweet aroma of brown sugar. Light body, active carbonation, sticky mouthfeel. Malt flavour, sweet caramel and toasted grains, syrupy finish.

Dig that crazy bear on this here beer label. Pour from BC -- you know BC, that province with heavy duty weed, great craft beer scene & government that irrationally blames teachers for the economic downturn -- mix pack in LCBO is tree bark brown with little foam to think of. Taste is all honey. Like really, dude -- total honey. Maybe behind the sugar dessert beer thereís a half decent lager, but youíre not gonna find it in this bottle.

worldbeertaste (1796) - West Midlands, ENGLAND - SEP 28, 2014
Orange with a thin disappearing fizzy head. Smells of caramel, stale malt, berries, and honey. Sweet to the taste with stale caramel and bland malt. Whatever.
