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.

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.
