COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Cask: Special - 2011.
The beer is amber gold in colour with a sweet floral aroma from the heather honey. On the palate, it has a slight floral sweetness balanced by the biscuity malt and crisp bitterness. The tradition of honey beers to celebrate weddings is said to have given us the term ‘honeymoon’, whether there is any truth in this or not, we’re not sure, it seemed like a good excuse to us! It’s brewed with Pale ale malt, Premium Cara malt, Amber malt, Pilgrim and Sovereign hops and Heather Honey. This is a limited-edition, one-off brew.

Cask at Bree Louise, Euson 19 May 11. Golden brown. No head. Bubbles on the glass. Does not look inviting at all. Strong smell of honey. Honey dominates the taste as well. Quite watery & boring. (Hope the wedding turns out better).

Ethereal (2417) - Los Angeles, California, USA - MAR 27, 2012
Cask at the Durrell Arms, Fulham, 28th April 2011. Slightly hazy copper amber with not much head (it was gravity dispense). Tons of honey on the nose but mostly beeswax. Similar taste - very sweet, lingering honey notes. Sweet palate feels like a stronger ABV. Nice at first but then gets a bit too much. I revised my scores downward over the course of a pint.
