Pours a clear pale yellow almost golden colour with a medium frothy white head. Aroma is of floral and citrus hops with a light grainy maltiness to it as well. Taste is of bread malts and a sweet honey like flavour with a mild bitter hoppy finish. Light body, average carbonation and smooth mouth feel. Overall a good drinking beer but nothing amazing.

1 L swingtop from Country Club Liquors. Nose of grass, honeycomb, and caramel. Clear yellow with a medium pale yellow head. Flavor is slightly peppery, slight swqeet honey, and a hint of bitterness in the finish.

UPDATED: JUN 3, 2011 Pours golden brown with a white head. Aroma is honey, sweet malts and caramel. Flavour follows accordingly. Nothing too special.

1L Bottle, swing-top. Pours a golden brown with a bubbly white head. Aroma is honey, sweet caramel, malts, and a hint of citrusy hops. Taste is rich with honey, caramel, and malt. Finish is lightly hopped, and quite smooth. This beer is delicious.

1L swing top. Relatively flat. Honey and apricot taste. A bit of a metallic tinge to the taste. Aroma is metallica and honey.

Hazy gold,small white head. Neutral nose. Tastes like watery honey water, with a light dirty line taste

Glory be to one litre swing-top bottles. If only they’d be a better fit in my little beer fridge... This one poured a smallish white head, maybe one finger’s worth but no more, and really no lacing to speak of. Colour is a medium gold. The aroma does indeed feature honey above all else, and was most pleasant. The taste was again of honey, but just enough to let you know that it was there and no more. Mouthfeel and aftertaste were "proper". Yeah, I’d like more of this one.

Fizzy and yellow, not a good start. Ok hop aroma. Low hop bitterness, low malty sweetness, watery. Very dry finish. Ok as a summer session but i know these guys can do better.

1 litre bottle with new artwork for 2009, abv now 5.0%. Appearance: Golden, slightly opaque at first before settling and becoming clear. One to two finger head, creamy and white, when poured into curved pint glass. Head diminishes quickly, leaving no ring and no lacing. Aroma: Sweet liquid honey and gentle hops, some grass. Taste: Very much like the aroma. Quite a lot of Lillooet honey, fairly sweet, but slightly tempered by the modest but noticeable hopping, which is vaguely grassy. Not as overly sweet as many honey beers of the pacific northwest, but a prominent flavour. Initial level of sweetness does not increase to the point of unpleasantness like some of its competitors. Refreshing, clean finish which impressively manages to lose a little of the honey so as not to make this a sickly honey ale. Mouthfeel: Smooth from the honey, functional. Pleasant. Drinkability: Depends if you’re in the mood for honey. Drinkable enough over the course of a pint or a litre, but only sessionable if you’re in the mood. Yet that is the case for pretty much every honey beer around here; this just happens to be a better one than you would normally find. Accessible to the masses, yet brewed well enough to be able to be appreciated by true beer lovers. Decent beer.

Medium straw, abundant clover honey. Watery and dry, this really isn’t my thing.
