Dogwood Brewing in south Vancouver approached honey in beer a little differently by creating an organic honey lager.  The beer pours a hazy copper colour with one finger of white head that dissipates quickly leaving no lacing.  Dogwood’s honey lager gives off aromas of fresh bread and honey, crusty malts and some mild caramel tones.  In the mouth the beer tastes of bread and cereal grains, a hint of honey up front with a light and crisp finish that lingers with a mild bitterness in the mouth.  Many honey-infused beers end up with residual sweetness but Dogwood’s Honey Lager is much different, offering instead the aromas and flavours of honey but balanced in a crisp and refreshing beer.
