3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
330ml bottle. Pours a clear caramel colour with a good sized off white head. Caramel forward on the nose with honey, faint resinous notes, and light floral notes. Makes me think "Fullers London Pride". The taste is medium sweet with more of the corn syrup hard candy notes, mineral notes, sponge toffee, and light bitterness in the finish. It’s not complicated, and it’s a little too sweet, but I enjoy the flavour profile. There are definitely times when I would like to have a beer like this on standby in the fridge, but unfortunately Ontarian’s have only Sleeman Honey Brown as an option.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Pours a clear amber with a small white head that settles to a thin ring around the glass. Aroma is sweet honey malt, caramel and lightly bready. Flavour is caramel, mild grassy hop presence, honey notes and a touch of bread.

3.5 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle. 5% Part of the LCBO BC Craft 6 pack. Served in a lager glass. A crystal clear honey amber with a soapy off-white head. It has a really nice honey bready graham aroma. Medium bodied with a soft rounded carbonation and smooth mouthfeel. A malt forward lager, sweet honey & biscuity malts with a dash of caramel. It seems like a honey Vienna Lager. A well made honey lager, possibly a bit too sweet.

2.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Ive had many honey lagers, and they are all a gimmick, the honey is usualy just for color, and does nothing for the flavour. Well, this beer bucks that trend. Its pours clear copper, with a small white head. The aroma is some light nuts, some maple sugar, brown sugar, cheap, sweet grains and yes, some floral honey. The mouth feel and body are standard. The finish is lightly bitter with an at first cloyingly sweet malt base, that is actaully off putting, but as soon as it came, it leaves. The finish is incredibly quick and dry. Once the sweetness is gone, there is nothing left. An odd beer.

2.5 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 8/20
330 ml bottle in a mixed pack from LCBO, served cold in a tulip glass.
App.: Clear amber with a decent off-white head and good lacing.
Aroma: Quite sweet with caramel, a bit of melanoidin, graham cracker, brown sugar, a little DMS (maybe?), malty.
Palate: Medium body, fairly relaxed carbonation.
Flav.: Quite sweet and malty with basically the same notes as the nose: caramel, brown sugar, graham cracker, melanoidins, still has a little “something” which I am calling DMS; off-dry with low bitterness and a fairly clean, somewhat abrupt finish (vs. Expectation based on the nose and flavour).
Not the worst I’ve had from Whistler. Not really for me either.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
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)!

2.6 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
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.

2.3 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
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.

2.9 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle -- this time NOT shared with northropfrye, as he is off on a beer-run. I find this aroma downright off-putting and pissy. It’s 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, I’m enjoying the lively palate. This beer is okay!

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
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.
