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.

    Even by my low standards for Granville Island, I was hoping for more from this beer, although the fact I didn’t get that doesn’t surprise me. A dark straw coloured pour with a thin white head fills the glass. Grains, yeast, and weak citrusy hop and honey notes make up the best part of the aroma….the worst part being the honey so hard to detect. Flavour is rather bland, again the honey sweetness is quite difficult to detect among the grainy and metallic notes that are up front. I’ll avoid this in the future.

    355ml can from mix pack. Pours a large frothy eggshell coloured head and has a pale golden appearance with moderate carbonation. Fairly good retention. Thick dirty lacing. Aromas of bready and toasty malts, notes of honey but somewhat faint. Very subtle honey flavour, some sweet and toasty malt notes as well  slick and slight drying mouthfeel. Smooth and refreshing making it good anytime of year but perfect for hot summer days.

    Part of the 12-pack Summer Mangler at The Beer Store. Pours a clean amber colour with a frothy warm cap that has average retention, but some good creamy lacing. Big cereal grain malt aromas with some caramel notes and a touch of sweetness from the honey. Very mild flavours of bread with the malts, honey and light bitterness from the hops. Not bad, but lacking a little punch and authentic taste.

    Extremely average beer, yet quaffable, and kind of disappointing. Can't really taste(or smell) the honey. Very cloying mouthfeel that sticks to the roof of your mouth. Other than the Hefe, I have yet to be impressed by G.I.'s brews

    boiling oats, skunky that is barely masked by "honey", more specifically artificial sweet woodyish flavour. Bloating and lagerish. It is everything you might expect. It is worth mentioning, that for me 4 is average and not 6, as I feel like most beers that someone on here would drink would be above average brews, and so I want to make room for that. Back to this beer, lager, with a touch of banana and fake smelling honey.

    This poured a darkish gold colour, underneath a frothy white head of two fingers depth. The aroma was mostly hopped, and I did quite like it. Taste was more of a 'plain' lager than anything else, although perhaps the honey finally make an appearance in the finish. Mouthfeel was thin and watery. Bland but not revolting.

    pour put a organge-gold lager in the glass, weak head that vanished quickly, weak lacing. Aromas of apple, vanilla, sweetness and boiled grans some light sulpher mustiness from the lager yeast. Light body, flaccid character, sandy mouth feel sweetness and grains with apple-pear tones up front not much body, fast wet finish where some light hopping is detected. Not a very attractive lager to the palate or as a drinkable session beer.

    A very nice micro brewed beer with a nice hint of honey. A beer for those who don't normally don't drink beer because of the sweetness. heavier that the major brands in Canada, its still worthy of a BBQ or friend get together. Compared to other micro brews, this beer is unique in its taste and is somewhat smooth. Worthy of a try!
