Pours a huge foamy head and leaves dirty lacing. Pretty excessive carbonation. Has a pale golden appearance. Mild honey aromas as well as barley malts and light floral hops. Flavours are nice and mild floral and citrus hops with a bit of wheaty, malty smoothness. Honey hints are actually barely noticeable, could have more punch. Slick creamy mouthfeel. Still a really nice smooth and easy to drink pale ale with a slight hint of sweetness from the honey.

Un souvenir de pêche blanche. Beau liquide doré à la mousse pétillante. Arômes de malt, de grains, de fleurs et de miel avec des odeurs de sirop qui agacent un tantinet. Saveurs semblables, où le grain est croquant et le côté sucré est plutôt limite. Soit par du miel de mauvaise qualité, soit par un sirop artificiel. Une effervescence digestive qui plaît néanmoins. Ça devient rapidement sans intérêt. Malgré qu’à ce prix-là, ça reste potable. (1556-250815)

1 pint can from my local convenience store... Pours a "chill hazed" strong golden with a small white head that leaves pretty good lacing. Nose is of fruits (melon for the most part) and caramel with a slight "fake" character to it that I cannot explain (vaguely chemical, I guess). It is almost grossly sweet to the nose in fact, too. Taste is a bit sweet and moderately bitter, offers some melon and other fruits over a honeyed base. Body is moderate and carbonation medium. Mouthfeel is a little sticky. Overall I thought it wasn’t bad the first time I had it (around 2007-2008 I would guess) but now defects and the overall lack of quality seem pretty evident.

Pours a turbid copper with lots of fine carbs topped by a creamy eggshell head offering nice lacing. The nose is dominated by the honey and some caramelized malts but you’ll also get strong herbal hops. The attack is sweet with the honey being paired with the malt but everything is set on a strong (grassy) hoppy backbone. It delivers an enjoyable bitterness and drops dry at the finish leaving no aftertaste. Good brew overall, for an Irish honey pale ale.

probstblueribbon (3791) - Nepean, Ontario, CANADA - MAY 31, 2014
473 ml can from Broue Ha Ha, served cold in a tulip glass.

App.: Clear orange-amber with a decent orange-light tan head. Aroma: Dusty citrus, grapefruit, honey, caramel, sort of a not great APA. Palate: Medium body, fairly full carbonation. Flav.: Similar to the nose, quite dusty, citrusy, caramel-y, again, like a mediocre APA; dry with astringency and decent bitterness, and a citrus and caramel finish.

I was expecting worse. Much worse.

lesifflebiere (1928) - Gatineau, Quebec, CANADA - MAR 30, 2014
À mi-chemin entre l’orange et le ambré, ce liquide assez mousseux et limpide, mi-mince, évoque en nez des fruits jaunes, des agrumes et du sucre cuit. Belle attaque houblonnée en introduction, puis une bizarre d’interlude aqueuse, avant de finir avec la douceur du miel. Les houblons sont plus végétaux, herbacés qu’annoncé. Un produit avec plus d’audace que prévu, une véritable pale ale, un brin trop sucrée peut-être, mais au final totalement passable.

cargo150 (1289) - Quebec City, Quebec, CANADA - FEB 28, 2014
Couleur ambrée pale avec un peu de mousse. Nez intense de miel et de sucre. En bouche c’est un peu trop sucré mais ca se bois très bien. C’est très simple comme bière, dans la moyenne!

BiereLuc (1276) - Montréal, Quebec, CANADA - JAN 15, 2014
Bière dorée / cuivrée, coiffée d’un épais col de mousse. L’effervescence est hallucinante. Le nez est simple et discret, on appréhende des saveurs principalement maltées, un peu de sucre. En bouche, la bière est étonnement onctueuse et mielleuse (pour vrai!). Cette McCoy surpasse mes attentes. Un beau produit grand public.

Minderbinder (3469) - Québec, Quebec, CANADA - JAN 12, 2014
Can 473ml. Pours golden with medium beige head. Good lacing. Aroma is of grain, honey, flowers. Taste is of grain, alcohol, bitterness, sugar, malt. Palate: Light-medium body. Medium carbonation. Overall: Refreshing. Not really complex, but certainly decent. A bit too sweet.

solidfunk (9363) - Washington D.C., Washington DC, USA - DEC 30, 2013
Just above the drinkable mark. Pours cloudy amber with a little foamy head that disappears quick. Freezes prerty clear with a dirty tint on the bus stop. Sone light hops and citrus. Sone sour malt. Tall can from Bieres du monde.
