COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
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.

Mmm! Golden pour, foamy head that died pretty quick. The star of the show here is definitely the fresh honey. I?m Canadian (in AB right next to BC) and can vouch that this is the real deal. Really well made and balanced, the honey is there but not overpowering or artificial tasting like with some other beers (I believe the one other honey beer I have rated out of my backlog got priority rating because of how awful it was)!

Masterkush7 (501) - Edmonton, Alberta, CANADA - MAY 26, 2014
Amber color with a thin white head. Aroma is slight malt and a little bit of honey. Taste is very mild, maybe a hint of hops up front followed by malt and a somewhat sweet honey finish. Not bad, not that good either. It’ll do the trick when thirsty. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

TheRatKing (105) - Alberta, CANADA - MAY 2, 2014
Pours a rather pretty amber colour with minimal head. Scent is sweet, and that is all I can really pick up on. Flavour is more or less a generic honey lager. Nothing especially incredible about this, but it would be great as a session beer.

dreamflower (567) - Steinbach, Manitoba, CANADA - JAN 2, 2014
Bottle -- this time NOT shared with northropfrye, as he is off on a beer-run. I find this aroma downright off-putting and pissy. Itís a coppery colour, with very little head, which settles down into a thin layer of scum/foam. Tastes all right, though. The sweetness comes through, as the name suggests. And, Iím enjoying the lively palate. This beer is okay!

fiulijn (14350) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - DEC 28, 2013
Draught at Tap & Barrel, Coal Harbour, Vancouver
Amber color, clear, with small head. It has a light caramel aroma and flavor, with a very light nutty honey aftertaste; correct bitterness.
Nothing complicated, but flawless, clean and easy to drink.

WoodersonMB (26) - Winnipeg, Manitoba, CANADA - OCT 21, 2013
Floral hops on the nose, maybe some sour oranges too. Head is gone within 2 seconds on a hard pour into a pint glass. Decent carbonation accompanied by traces of grain and a lot more honey in taste. No need to ever buy this again as it's just all around dull. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

northropfrye (2147) - Steinbach, Manitoba, CANADA - OCT 12, 2013
Grainy aroma. Light amber body with some head, not much lacing. Taste is quite sweet, honey obviously, a slight touch of bitterness, but a little too far on the sweet side. Uninteresting.

cards04 (1639) - Steinbach, Manitoba, CANADA - OCT 12, 2013
Decent beer. Sweet grain and apple aromas with a similar flavor profile. A slightly better than average lager.

Reimer96 (1173) - Alberta, CANADA - APR 23, 2013
Pours a clear amber color with a small head. Aroma of sweet pale malts, honey, caramel and some floral hops. Taste is sweet honey with rich malts and a nice clean and crisp lager taste and a smooth bitterness on the finish. Nice lager.

Review done straight from the bottle that I borrowed from my parents fridge...... Looks like a beer in a bottle enough said about that. Strong aroma, honey, sourness, apple, flowery, metallic hops... it aint all that bad really Iím not saying I like it but its not bad. WOW this is diabolically sweet. Big honey, overly sweet caramel malts, metallic bordering on skunky hops never makes it to full on skunk though. This started out drinkable but its going down hill fast. To fucking sweet. There seems to be an underlining rotten egg. This beer is what it is.
