COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Whether the trail takes us through a lush rainforest, a wave-swept beach or a remote mountain pass, when it comes to hiking, we’ve got it good on Vancouver Island. High Trail Honey Ale is a tribute to our majestic wilderness, vast rolling meadows and the mighty peaks of this Island we call home. We created a smooth, medium bodied ale with a slightly sweet honey finish by utilizing a combination of local wildflower honey and roasted barley malts.

New name same great taste! Formerly Spyhopper Honey Brown.

Modest sweet aroma and starchy old socks. Minimal head and good orange body. Flavour is sweet malts with structure.a good well above average honey ale.

Sweet aroma. Succeeded in adding in a honeyish taste. Not a fan of the aftertaste, expected it to be more fresh or maybe even less dry. Overall quite smooth.

Had this at a little bar on a cruise last year, a very nice mellow beer with a very light crisp honey taste, not too heavy on the malt though, clean and refreshing.

Draught at Rogue Kitchen & Wetbar (W. Broadway), Vancouver
Golden color with compact head. It has light malt aroma and flavor; the mouthfeel is rather dry; ordinary bitterness; the honey is not evident.
Simple.

Jaune pale avec un arôme de céréales et un peu du malt. Le goût est maigre, un peu de céréales et un peu de miel. Carbonization moyenne. Pas mal typique.
