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.

look: 3.5 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 2.5 | feel: 3 | overall: 3.5

Pours a clear golden orange, small white head forms, goes quick but leaves a nice ring. Smell is sweet and malty, apples, honey, vanilla and citrus. Taste is malty, with vanilla, citrus and yeast, weak finish. Mouthfeel is light bodied with low carbonation. Flavour was pretty watered down. (290 characters)

355ml can served in pint glass.

Clear, pale straw colour. Cream coloured, foamy 1/4 inch head. Head disappears shortly after drinking commences.

Typical macro lager aroma. Very mild and bland, some slightly off tones.

Mild and bland taste. Goes down like fizzy water with a mildly bitter aftertaste. Where's the honey? Towards the end of the glass as the beer warms up a bit the aftertaste gets some off flavour. Reminds me of formaldehyde.

Mouthfeel is light bodied and average for a macro lager. Not enough carbonation (perhaps from an agressive pour).

There really isn't much to say about this beer. While it isn't terrible, it isn't that great either. Might be worth a try, but I don't think I'd buy one again. (730 characters)

An average offering from the Granville Island Brewery, but at least they are consistent in offering average beers. It's a clear golden colour, decent white head upon pour, but it disappears quickly and leaves a minimal amount of lacing. Aroma is crisp, predominantly floral hops, and the smallest bit of sweet malt. This possesses a pretty good mouthfeel, it's very satisfying, but the flavour department isn't really home right now, it's crisp, but the taste seems to be muted. It's actually quite refreshing, just a tad bland. (528 characters)
