2.3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
Very light, watery, unoffensive but unimaginative flavour. Light colour, not much head. A little sweetness from the honey, I guess, but not much else. Pretty bland for a honey beer, or any other type.
Slight aroma of bread, grains....almost non existent. Decent dark gold color. Thin white head. Off-sweet tasting malt up front....synthetic. Bitterness creeps in..mild and no complexity. Finishes with the same off-tasting sweetness. Thin mouthfeel. I’ve had better cheap beer. Masterkush7 (580) - Edmonton, Alberta, CANADA - DEC 4, 2013
used to drink this as an underage teenager. a dirt cheap lager that the price reflects but i must say ive had plenty of good memories drinking this shit. czar (9328) - Québec, Quebec, CANADA - APR 12, 2013
(drain pour and ticks’ night) pours clear yellow with a very small white head, little retention, no lacing. honeyed corn, faint and sugary malts, herbal blandness for a very short finish. almost aggressive carbonation, light body - seems to have a slightly better texture than water.. drinkable (read not a horrid brew) blankboy (7780) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - AUG 18, 2012
Bottle [12oz]. No idea how it looks because I drank it out of the bottle, I imagine it’s a pale gold though. Aroma and flavour are sweet and grainy along with a hint of artificial honey. Thin bodied. It was handed to me at a yard party so I drank it, but I would never pay for one, it’s not good.

I used to drink this all the time. If you closed your eyes and sipped it, you might not know there’s honey in there, just that it’s a sweet lager. I wish I could comment on the appearance, but I don’t recall ever seeing this outside of the can, so I’ll just give that an "average" score to be fair. Smells of sweet vomit. Women like it. Just kidding, if you serve it they’ll think you’re cheap.

Originally rated September 2004. First of two reviews on Ontario, Canada brewed honey lagers. This one from Lakeport poured a golden-orange colour with a decent head that had little retention. Aromas were of malt with sweet hints. Had medium carbonation. Started off slightly bitter, and then finished on a mild honey note. This brew had lots of marketing behind it, being a buck a bottle (canadian funds) which is cheap here. This resulted in being in the top 10 sellers in Ontario (The Beer Store). O.K. That doesn’t say much, but this beer is pretty good for summer. reebtogi (6341) - Edmonton, Alberta, CANADA - MAR 14, 2012
473ml can pours a pale golden color with a small white head that leaves no lacing. Aroma is cheap grains and hops. Taste is malty sweet with a terrible bitter aftertaste. Not good and not recommended. rob6239 (677) - Ontario, CANADA - FEB 11, 2012
Pretty much as you’d expect from a discount brewer. Not much here but it is my preference of the macro honey lagers. HeistAlmighty (1156) - Saint John, New Brunswick, CANADA - AUG 7, 2011
341ml bottle. Had this one ages ago. Old notes say "drinkable." It doesn’t really stand out amongst the other buck-a-beers. pushkinwow (2887) - Ottawa, CANADA - JUN 21, 2011
341ml bottle. Served very cold - probably helped, and really its gota be from the bottle. Its cheap and not terrible. Its very sweet, not terribly great, not complex, off after taste. But all that being said its still better then some of the swill out there (and its brewed in my old hometown so...)
