sudomorph (1106) - Barrie, Ontario, CANADA - FEB 8, 2014
Pours a clear dark caramel with nearly no head. Aroma has slight honey and floral. Taste is a mild sweet but balanced. Medium body and carbonation. Not cloying with enough carbonation to make it drinkable. Overall drinkable but a little weird for flavour. Worth a try though to taste the contrast.

Lubiere (13064) - Ottawa, Ontario, CANADA - DEC 31, 2013
A clear reddish brown ale with a thin mocha head. In aroma, sweet caramel malt with dark fruits, molasses, honey, nice. In mouth, a sweet nutty caramel malt with roasted notes, treacle, plums, interesting. Bottle from LCBO.

Eructoblaster (3942) - Gatineau, Quebec, CANADA - DEC 31, 2013
Bottle - 750ml. Dark brown body with a thin beige foamy/creamy head. Malty aroma with hoppy, honeyish, and brown sugar hints. Its robust malty/hoppy taste carries oaky and honeyish notes. Ends with a decent bittersweet finish.

wilderthanyou (758) - Guelph, CANADA - DEC 22, 2013
Pours a deep red/amber with a short lived off white head. Aroma of burn sugars, honey, wet grass, roast pork and bathroom. The flavours are burnt sugars and honey, caramel, slight spicey hop note. Easy drinking, but not super entertaining.

OntBeerDrinker (515) - Ontario, CANADA - NOV 30, 2013
Bee Lixir 5% 750ML hardly tuched the one side of the swing top and it opened fast and loud. Expired a month after I bought it. Bought it 1t time seeing this beer: smell is honey/malt. Dark red. 2 finger head. Leaves laceing. Taste: Honey, a light earthiness. light brown sugar, malt, a little water.

Strangebrewer (1207) - Chatham, Ontario, CANADA - OCT 1, 2013
750ml bottle called Honey Beelixer 5.0%. Poured clear red-amber with a very very big beige head. Sweet sugary aroma. Medium body with a chewy mouthfeel. Sweet malt flavour with notes of caramel, maybe honey, slightly peppery finish. Not bad but the 750ml needs to be shared.

Sampled at Forest City Beer Fest. High honey & high booze. Golden boldness.

JoeMcPhee (9325) - Toronto, ON, Ontario, CANADA - MAY 4, 2013
Bottle at Ontario Brewing Awards. Deep amber pour. Off-white head. The aroma is sweet and a little bit chewy. A touch of caramel and some sweet fruity character. Lightly earthy with a touch of fruit. Lingering estery character. Pretty nice really.

neuromatt (1225) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - FEB 23, 2013
500 mL can from the brewery, served in a branded glass. Pours clear caramel with a small, tan head that fades slowly to a thin cover. The nose has caramel, grain, earth, herbal hops and subtle fruit. The flavour is medium sweet with subtle honey balanced with subtle hop bitterness. The malts are nutty, with caramel and bread. Hops are herbal and fruity. The finish is medium and soft malty with subtle hops. On the palate, it is medium in body with a smooth, milky texture and soft carbonation. Overall, this is a nice brown ale, fairly simple but nicely made and easily drinkable. 2012-09-02

Boutip (6026) - Gatineau, Quebec, CANADA - FEB 19, 2013
Bottle: Poured a clear deep amber color ale with a medium size foamy head with OK retention and minimal lacing. Aroma consists of medium caramelized malt with light sweet undertones. Taste is quite bland with light honey notes and some caramel malt notes as well. Body is about average with medium carbonation. Bland and average offering it kind of makes me feel good about not having to drink beers from the early 1800s everyday.
