Aroma of wheat and grass and something sweet, but not necessarily honey. Golden amber colour with a thin creamy light tan head that leaves some nice lacing. Taste is light syrup up front, with a tail of malt and light bitterness. It’s pretty innocuous. andrewturba (1190) - Alberta, CANADA - DEC 9, 2014
Pours a clear copper with a medium sized white head that settles but leaves a decent amount of spots of lace. Aroma is sweet honey notes, malty, caramel, mild fruity esters and grass. Flavour is malty, honey notes, caramel, grassy and a very mild bitterness. Not really anything wrong with this beer though too amazing either but it is some of the best beer coming out of Mexico! pintbypint (3924) - Edmonton, Alberta, CANADA - DEC 9, 2014
355ml brown bottle, 2014 Craft Beer Advent Calendar day 9. Clear and golden in the glass. Small sticky white head with some small lace rings. Nose has some sweet honey notes. Taste has grains and honey and some metallic notes. Plain finish. Not that exciting. MunBro (942) - St. Albert, Alberta, CANADA - DEC 9, 2014
CBAC Day 9: There was a smooth honey and malt flavour, nicely balanced there but I got no hop flavours at all, which apparently were supposed to be prevelant. Decent, easy drinking beer but wish it was hoppier. shorlin (736) - St. John’s, Newfoundland, CANADA - DEC 9, 2014
Aroma is bright, fruity and grassy. Appearance dark gold, ring of head, little lacing. Taste is exactly like a honey ale but with some metallic tast e. I’m not a fan of this one.

2014 Advent Calendar #9, 330ml, no bottle date or best before.
Pours clear pale amber with one finger of loose white head diminishing gradually to a thin skim, moderate patchy lacing. (3/5) Nose is muted, grainy pale malt, grassy hops, honey. (6/10) Taste is moderate sweet, mild bitter. (6/10) Light body, moderate carbonation, slightly sticky and mildly bitter. (3/5)
An unremarkable summer pale amber ale, if somewhat sweet. The honey does come through, and doesn’t taste artificial or cloying, eve though the mouthfeel does end up feeling sticky. Not quite sure how it figures into an Advent calendar, but I guess it’s hard to get 24 kinds of dark heavy beer...? That being said, it’s fairly easy-drinking, and the initial impression I had, of adjunct lager character, seems to be incorrect.

Amber and a bit hazy. Thin head. The aroma has sweet honeyish notes, and a bit of biscuity, grainy character. A reasonably full body for the style, balancing the biscuity pale malt character, a touch of toastiness and a prominent honey note. Decent balance, for a sweet amber it’s not bad at all, and I appreciate how it showcases the honey, but I’m never going to get that excited about a sweet amber ale. reebtogi (6403) - 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 (1022) - 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.
