Notes/Commercial Description:
Brewed in small batches, our Cypress Honey Lager is lightly hopped, mild and bright, and given a hint of sweetness with pure Fraser Valley honey. It’s like a refreshing blast of Cypress Mountain air.

Draft: Poured a golden/amber color lager with a medium size foamy head with OK retention. Aroma consists of light malt presence with light sweet notes form honey. Taste is also dominated by light caramel notes with sweet honey finish. Body is about average with good carbonation. This is almost closer to a Vienna then a straight lager but refreshing nonetheless with limited amount of complexity.

3.11/5  rDev -2.5%
look: 3.25 | smell: 3 | taste: 3 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.25

341ml bottle poured into a pint glass. ABV 4.7%.

A - Poured a deep gold with a thin white head, head reduced to some surface bubbles, minimal lacing.

S - Light grains, hint of honey, some floral. Pretty light.

T - Mild sweetness with a hint of honey, low bitterness in the finish.

M - Medium carbonation, medium body, some stickiness, clean finish

O - The honey is barely detectable. Overall this beer is inoffensive, easy to drink yet one dimensional and easily forgettable. Despite that I wouldn't refuse one if offered.
