I bought this 1 L growler in northern BC. It has a moderate amount of foamy-creamy, light beige/yellow head with a cloudy gold colour body. There is a light floral aroma with some lemon freshness. The taste is stronger than what the aroma suggests but is not particularly strong. A breadiness and hops bitterness dominate the flavour. There is a light honey flavour. The taste is short-lived giving way to a booziness, even though it is 5%. It has a light-to-medium body and medium-to-high carbonation. Overall, it is a really good pale ale and very drinkable but with the alcohol taste building up in the aftertaste I can only go so far.

Appearance - Pours a clear golden light amber with 1/2 finger width of bubbly head that recedes quickly.

Smell - Grains, grass, hint of lemon and sweet honey aromas.

Taste - Bread/biscuit flavour with a touch of honey sweetness and grassiness. Pretty light in flavour.

Mouthfeel - Light-to-medium bodied with good moderate carbonation. Crisp dry finish on the palate.

Overall - A refreshing English pale ale by Howe Sound. I was hoping for a little more honey flavour, as the name suggests, but it does not take away from the quality of this brew. Easy to drink with excellent thirst-quenching attributes.
