reebtogi (5925) - Edmonton, Alberta, CANADA - DEC 8, 2014
355ml bottle pours a pale golden amber color with a finger and a half of white head that settles quite quickly to reveal some spotty lacing on the glass. Aroma is grassy and grainy. Taste is a grassy hop bitterness with a grainy malt and light honey sweetness. Light bodied with average carbonation. A decent pale amber ale that was a little more than I was expecting.

kbudd19 (1009) - Edmonton, Alberta, CANADA - DEC 3, 2014
Bottle. Golden colour with a nice finger of white head. Aroma is light fruity esters, and grass. Taste is light bitterness followed by a hint of sweetness, finish falls off a cliff. Very basic, not offensive but not a lot of flavour.

brainwafer (33) - British Columbia, CANADA - NOV 28, 2014
Pours up clear and light, little tinge of amber, smell of malt and iron and a tad bit of sweet honey, very crisp average amount of carbonation, taste of roasted malts and oats with a slight honey backbone, slight oily mouthfeel..pretty decent all in all..

MartinT (9535) - Montreal, Quebec, CANADA - NOV 20, 2014
My Bottom Line:
This very fruity Honey Ale adds orangey hops and their herbal bitterness to the mix, delivering a dryish, drinkable experience.

Further Personal Perceptions:
-A veil of foam tops the honeyed amber shine.
-Cereals appear within, creating balance.
-This is well made, but also forgettable.
-Floral notes ride the prickly carbonation.

Lubiere (13183) - Ottawa, Ontario, CANADA - NOV 15, 2014
A golden amber ale with a thin off white head. In aroma, sweet caramel malt with light honey notes, butterscotch, OK. In mouth, a sweet fruity caramel malt with light mineral notes, light honey, OK. Bottle at El Deposito.

cervezadrinker (65) - MEXICO - NOV 3, 2014
bottle. 355 mL, amber a bit cloudy, faint hoppy aroma. has a nice sweet taste but lack body, descent beer with some chips. i like it but would pick a chupacabras instead. could be better coming from cucapá.

ljthiessen (1195) - Winnipeg, Manitoba, CANADA - NOV 2, 2014
Golden amber pour, no head. Light honey and corn notes, mostly malty but light. Not horrible, but quite mediocre. Honey is very understated, while corn flavours dominate. Was expecting more.

Ferris (13485) - Burnaby, British Columbia, CANADA - OCT 11, 2014
Bottle - Sweet caramel and candy sugars. Clear orange gold with a thin white head. Distinct cardboard and pale malts. Not a beer that travels well.

No me disgustó. Mejor de lo que esperaba. Quizá la volvería a comprar. Un sabor distinto.

Tap. Clean amber. White head. Sweet nose. Honey. Berries. Taste is malt and sweet. Surgery breakfast cereal. Not balanced.
