500 ml can bought at a liquor store in Port Moody on the way to Sasamat Lake. I ended up bringing it home and drinking it at the end of the day, out of the fridge and poured into a glass. This is probably the kind of beer that's appropriate to drink in the sun on a hot day.

A: Clear dark amber with lots of head that dissipates fairly quickly.
S: Maltier than I would have expected for a macrobrew lager. Sweet. I definitely pick up the honey.
T: Not bad. I'm not sure why the ratings are as low as they are. I've had much, much worse beer!! This is better than drinkable. I certainly wouldn't seek it out, but it's really not that bad. Malty and fairly sweet.
F: Watery. Could definitely stand to be crisper, too.
O: The one thing that's really off on this beer is the mouthfeel. Other than that, it's much better than I expected.
