i love this stuff, just drank a case last week actually. kinda weak on the alc. but a great cloured pils with slight hop flavouring and kind of a toasty aftertaste pootzboy (1805) - Kitchener, Ontario, CANADA - NOV 20, 2008
Pours a lightly hazed gold with a tight white 2 finger cap that lasts well and laces.
Aroma is woodsy-botanical with some robust bread dough malt tones and just a kiss of green apple.
Soft mouth feel silky delivery.
Up front the bready malts mingle with the woody-leafy hallertauer and spalter hops, lovely soft mineral palate, finishes in perfect balance between biscuity malts, earthy hops and soft mineral mouth from the water.
A great summer patio lager...not really in the Czech style, ...more like a soft Bavarian pilsner made with old style hop varieties...excellent! I’m a lager head and I could drink oceans of this at a session. stephen louis (166) - Victoria, British Columbia, CANADA - APR 7, 2004
A real interesting Idea and some people may really like this one.
on the pour:Very light gold,small white head,the nose is malt yeast and a back ground of honey.
on taste:Mild,clean and perhaps a little bland,the honey is really just nearly noticeable and makes for an unusual tasting pilsner.It is under-hopped,but only a little(hey they called it a pilsner,not a lager).the middle is slightly musty and then it drys out,no noticeable aftertaste.
Body: it is thicker then your average pil due to the honey,and they did not hold back on the bubbles.
I like it,kudo's to the brewer for trying something different.

Hoppy nose and pours a cloudy yellow with a short head. Medium hoppy palate with a slight bitter aftertaste. It’s a full flavored pilsner from a great brewery. Druid (101) - Wamuran, AUSTRALIA - AUG 3, 2013
A nice looking golden coloured Pils with a light foamy head that persists. Good hoppy aromas and surprising levels of bitterness that leaves a slight metallic aftertaste. Overall a pretty good beer.

Mild floral honey aroma with some light herbal hop character and lightly grainy malts apparent. Brilliantly clear golden blonde body is topped by a low, fine bubbled white head that lasts well. Toasty, biscuity malts are joined by a pleasant honey sweetness and mild citrus hop character leading through to a crisp finishing bitterness. Medium light body with moderate carbonation that is lightly effervescent, engaging the tongue. Tumbler. Just above fridge temperature.

Better than expected. Kinda weak, a little skunky, but other than that a smooth, very drinkable, tasty lager with a bit hop presence, spiciness in the end, and a faint but distinct honey flave. mgermani (1010) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - APR 24, 2007
Pours a dull gold with a small head. Rich, immersive aroma of honey and clover. Slightly more aggressive hopping than other honey beers I’ve tasted, but still very sweet - strong, strong honey! Weak, thin body, decent carb. Not a bad beer, the honey is a good cover for what probably would have been a sweet beer anyway, though.
