COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
This all-malt ale is brewed with pure Wisconsin honey which provides a light, but rich flavor. This special blend of wheat and barley malt that we use, along with domestic hops, continues to provide a full body and fresh hop aroma.

Suprisingly dark brownish golden. Aroma is malty with a hint of honey and something I call coconut for lack of a better term--donít know what that is. Light bodied and fizzy. A little bit of sweetness and a little bit of bitterness so in that repect well balanced. One of the better brews by Berghoff though Iím no big fan. Very drinkable at least and definitely a step above BMC.

Lots of white floaties in this one. A dark amber body. A thin white head. Aroma of sweet honey and some light bread. The taste is an artificial sweetness. A bitter aftertaste. Tastes of metal and some bubblegum. The floaters have me worried.

This is really one of those beers that does not beg for description; if you're into micros, why buy a Huber product? If you're not, how did you come across this? No "wheat" character here, the honey seems fake, thin, watery, but somehow refreshing in an odd way.

Much too light. hennes is right; it has a definite grassy, straw-like flavor. But if there is honey in it, Iím surprised.

A little sweet with some gassy, grassy tones. Not really worth the dimes I dropped on it in an Indiana grocery.

i liked this beer, especially on tap, but it must be very cold to drink or else it gets to sweet-makes a good session ale.

Berghoff makes some good beers, but this does not fall into that catagory. Smells worse then it tastes.

Nice sweet aroma, beautiful golden color. Surprisingly bitter though, especially the aftertaste. Iíll let my friends drink the rest of the 6 pack.

Indra (2627) - Overland Park, Kansas, USA - DEC 4, 2001
Interesting opaque dark golden color. Not much in the way of aroma, just faintly sweet. Some sweetish flavors on top of the very lightly tart wheat flavors, and a slightly fizzy finish. I think itís just okay; needs a little more flavor, body and a good mouthfeel to suit me.

Not my favorite of the joseph huber brewing company products, but this was still better than most. Everything was good with this beer except it was slightly too sweet which made it not so good as it got warm, which mine did.
