I’m embarking on a craft beer journey and I’m taking you with me.  A few terms you’ll need to become familiar with are: Alcohol by Volume (ABV), which describes how much of the beer is actual alcohol and also International Bittering Unit (IBU), which describes the bitterness level.  Beer falls within 2-12% ABV range with most falling between 4-6%.  They’re best enjoyed at 40-50 degrees Fahrenheit for paler or lower alcohol beers, and 50-60 degrees Fahrenheit for darker or higher alcohol beers.

ABV: 4.5%
IBU: 10%

The Original Honey Brown Lager was first brewed in 1994 using premium barley, hops and pure Manitoba White Clover Honey.

To begin, I poured the lager into a clean clear goblet where it formed a nice foamy head.  The beer smells of honey, has a clear caramel-like color.  In terms of taste, it wasn’t overly carbonated and didn’t leave you feeling like you’d be expelling gaseous fumes at any moment.  I found it to be really refreshing, had a nice mouthfeel, light (but not watery) and doesn’t leave you feeling full.  It’s not overly sweet.

Overall, I definitely enjoyed it and look forward to having another.

Reviews are not solicited, just my journey in expanding my palate and chronicling the experience.
