What in the hell is up with honey in beers these days??? Bees....Bees make honey....and man makes beer...leave the damn bees be and make the damn beer good!!!!! Aroma is of grapefruit with a wheaty/honey smell which just dominates whatever else is going on here. It poures a slightly cloudy yellow, ever ever so slight golden, wheat like appearance, with a very thin lacing of a head sitting on top, more foamy than anything. The carbonation appears in check until the tasting where it begins to get out of control. Very little of the hops can be picked up as the honey, and citric fruits predominate. Then the aftertaste hits and all goes to hell in a handbag. I just had a EuerkOOOOO Honey Wheat and sure enough im tasting a very very VERY slight floral honeyness in the aftertaste. Not very pleasant. Watery texture with a honey, robitussin medicine mix. I cant quite figure it out, but id rather spend my time thinking about the girl next door.

Golden Amber colour, head held out for quite awhile before disappating. Far to malty sweet for the style. A bit thin as well. Lackluster.

Pours a very nice clear copper with a thick beige head. Aroma of toasty, biscuity malt with lightly floral hops. The taste has more of the same along with caramel and citrus characteristics. Thin and watery with subtle carbonation. Uninspired and boring. Doesn’t really have the hop character to be considered an American IPA. More like a bitter.

Amber color. Light aroma, fruits and toffee. Very common taste, poor and boring, nothing special…

12 oz bottle. Golden amber beer with a small white head. Aroma is that of any other macro beer, with a little more emphasis on the pale malt. Flavor is sweet cereal malt, smooth and full in body, but not in taste. Nowhere near enough hops. Very disappointing in comparison to the IPA which was pretty good. I just don’t like this beer. A notch below average in my opinion. Not something I would ever buy again. Single purchased at Total Wine & More, Jacksonville FL.

(draft @ The Old Toad - Rochester, NY) Dark copper pour with a very thin amount of tan head. Aroma is kind of sweet and malty with some hops and some caramel. Flavor was kind of sweet and caramelly at the beginning with some hops, not that much though, but a rather sweet and malty finish. Not much hops but a lot of caramel. Not in a good way though.

Bottle Sept 2006. Golden color, not much head. Aroma wasn’t great, mixture of malt, citrus, biscuit. Taste was bland for a pale ale. Too sweet for the style and not enough hops. Usually a fan of Pale Ale’s, not in this case.

Bottle. Clear amber, frothy white head quickly diminishing. Not much in the way of aroma, just some slight malt. Biscuit to light caramel malt flavor with a bit of citrus hoppiness. Kind of thin and timid palate. Non-offensive, but there’s not much going on here either.

Pours with a frothy head. So-so mouth feel, light carbonation, slightly salty.
