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.

2.6 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 11/20
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.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Pale amber pour with an off-white head. The nose is fairly sweet with a sugary sort of malt component. Brown sugar and a bit of toasted oat character along with some sweet caramel, light biscuit and a bit of toffee. The sweetness is pretty decent really - light-medium bodied with a bit of lingering sweetness. Cleanish fermentation. Decent - although not really my style.

2.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
Bottle. Medium clear copper, average white head that retains only briefly. Very sweet aroma of honey and caramel. The label is correct in that the honey is very evident in the aroma, and TOO evident in the palate. VERY sweet! Too sweet for my liking, although the honey character is genuine.

2.8 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
330ml bottle pours a pale golden color with a small white head that leaves a few spots of lace. Aroma is light sweet malts with very mild hops. Taste is light malt sweetness with mild hop bitterness. Light bodied with light carbonation. Nothing special here.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle. Crisp dark amber with a nice head and creamy lacing. Honey and light malt aroma with just a hint of metallic. Sweet flavour. Honey, light malt, light hop. An earthiness and bit of metallic. Nice enough.

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.
