Sleeman Honey Brown Lager

The hockey season is beginning, and so begins the drinking season. Hung over from a lovely Canucks win, with Port Moody’s own Jeff Tambellini playing with the twins, I now return to reality watching the Canucks trail the Oilers.

This honey brown is a darkish copper colour with a lovely head.
The aroma is mild and bitter, slight citrus.

This has a moderately intense bitter flavour that is clean, and leaves a dry aftertaste.

The mouthfeel is thick and creamy.

This is certainly more flavorful than other lagers, but not as good as other honey lagers, (like Granville Island).

Of course, they have created another category by calling it a honey brown.

The aftertaste is the least appealing part of the beer, with a windex like quality. Still, it isn’t terrible.

Overall this is an easy beer to drink, and is clean enough to pass as a session beer on a Sunday afternoon after a day of skiing.
