3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Tap at Mendocino Ale House in Ukiah, CA, Pours hazy amber with a white head. Aroma is rather honey and fruit. Med body or nearly. Flavor is clearly honey - a bit spicy to me - with some floral and malt. Finishes far less than dry, but not exactly sweet. Definitely honey in the finish.

It poured a golden/orange color with a small white head. The aroma was of malts and honey. The taste was similar. The rose hips were not noticeable. Average.

2.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
Hazy orange pour. Not much aroma--a bit of floral character. Flavor is kind of like a cream soda with a sharp, slightly unpleasant finish. Eh.

Bottle - from Ale in the Mail. Medium golden color - cloudy. Mostly clean aroma but can definitely smell the honey. OK. Pretty average amber beer flavor with a honey aftertaste. Don’t notice the rose hips.
