Vancouver Island Brewery – High Trail Honey Ale Review
As a tribute to the Beautiful BC and more specifically Vancouver Island wilderness the Vancouver Island Brewery has released the High Trail Honey Ale. Replacing the Spyhopper Honey Brown this face-lifted beer pours an amber colour with two fingers of head. The fairly quickly settling head leaves minimal lacing on the glass and smells of honey sweetness, malted notes and roasted barley. The overall scent is sweet and smooth forecasting a creamy and sweet honey ale. The flavour starts off with a creamy texture and malted notes before building in to a honey sweetness. Perhaps a little much for some the middle through end of this beer are all about the honey. The sweetness buzzes with honey flavours making for a sweet, low IBU, malted beer. Perhaps a little sweet for some this beer is a great treat for those of us with a sessionable beer-sweet-tooth.
