Whistler really is bear country and it’s quite common to meet a hungry bear on the Whistler Valley Trail. Which is fine, unless you happen to be carrying a Whistler Bear Paw Honey Lager; ‘cause we all know bears love real honey, right??? Our honey lager is fresh-brewed and fermented with 100% organic BC honey, so you can actually smell the honey aromas and taste silky smooth honey on the finish. It’s a very unique lager experience. So grab a 6-pack next time you visit the brewery – just make sure you don’t walk home via the Whistler Valley Trail.
Note: Formerly Whistler Altitude Honey Lager.

Draught at Tap & Barrel, Coal Harbour, Vancouver
Amber color, clear, with small head. It has a light caramel aroma and flavor, with a very light nutty honey aftertaste; correct bitterness.
Nothing complicated, but flawless, clean and easy to drink.

Bottle, pours a clear copper orange with a small white head. Aroma and flavour brings out notes of honey, bready malt and some residual sweetness from the honey and malt. Quite nice for a shitty lager.

DuffMan (10667) - the land of bitumen, beef & beer, Alberta, CANADA - AUG 27, 2011
Bottle. Medium clear copper, average white head that retains only briefly. Very sweet aroma of honey and caramel. The label is correct in that the honey is very evident in the aroma, and TOO evident in the palate. VERY sweet! Too sweet for my liking, although the honey character is genuine.

Pale amber pour with an off-white head. The nose is fairly sweet with a sugary sort of malt component. Brown sugar and a bit of toasted oat character along with some sweet caramel, light biscuit and a bit of toffee. The sweetness is pretty decent really - light-medium bodied with a bit of lingering sweetness. Cleanish fermentation. Decent - although not really my style.

PorterPounder (8289) - Tallahassee, Florida, USA - AUG 16, 2016
Vancouver, BC, on tap at The Hub Restaurant. Dark copper pour, snow white head, nice film of lacing. Aroma has some honey accents, a hint of butterscotch. Flavor is sweet, some honey goodness, a touch of butterscotch, some vanilla in the back end. Smooth mouthfeel. Rating #38 of my 2016 vacation.

reebtogi (6385) - Edmonton, Alberta, CANADA - APR 15, 2012
330ml bottle pours a pale golden color with a small white head that leaves a few spots of lace. Aroma is light sweet malts with very mild hops. Taste is light malt sweetness with mild hop bitterness. Light bodied with light carbonation. Nothing special here.

Great Canadian Beer Festival – 2009 – Victoria BC
This was a decent lager with some honey flavor in the backend. Very creamy and light with hops.

KansaiBeerLvrs (5373) - Kyoto, JAPAN - AUG 14, 2014
Bottle. 5% Part of the LCBO BC Craft 6 pack. Served in a lager glass. A crystal clear honey amber with a soapy off-white head. It has a really nice honey bready graham aroma. Medium bodied with a soft rounded carbonation and smooth mouthfeel. A malt forward lager, sweet honey & biscuity malts with a dash of caramel. It seems like a honey Vienna Lager. A well made honey lager, possibly a bit too sweet. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

presario (4925) - Stampede City, Alberta, CANADA - APR 24, 2011
Bottle. Crisp dark amber with a nice head and creamy lacing. Honey and light malt aroma with just a hint of metallic. Sweet flavour. Honey, light malt, light hop. An earthiness and bit of metallic. Nice enough.

robinvboyer (4754) - Sturgeon Falls, Ontario, CANADA - AUG 11, 2014
Ive had many honey lagers, and they are all a gimmick, the honey is usualy just for color, and does nothing for the flavour. Well, this beer bucks that trend. Its pours clear copper, with a small white head. The aroma is some light nuts, some maple sugar, brown sugar, cheap, sweet grains and yes, some floral honey. The mouth feel and body are standard. The finish is lightly bitter with an at first cloyingly sweet malt base, that is actaully off putting, but as soon as it came, it leaves. The finish is incredibly quick and dry. Once the sweetness is gone, there is nothing left. An odd beer.
