Not too bad. The honey is certainly noticable. There was too much of a grain flavor in conflict for my taste.

Wonderful golden honey in color. Thick white head disapates very quickly to reveal a slight spice in the nose. The flavor is sweet honey and slight caramel notes. Sweet honey on the finish, but its a little thin. All in all a very nice, refreshing summer treat.

Golden honey body with a thick carbonated head. The aroma was peppery and hoppy with a honey quality as well--I decided I liked it after a while. The flavor was of honey and hops and a dash of pepper taste, but without the spicey heat.

UPDATED: JUL 28, 2008 Dear god, hold me back. I could drink this all day and all night. A WONDERFUL summer beer. Great color, nice aroma, this baby has got it all. Super balanced and smooth taste with a subtle sweetness. The best summer beer I’ve had.

Light honey yellow in color with a small pencil width high head of even leveled, off-white, super tight, creamy foam. The head faded a little fast and has spotty lace. The aroma is very nice, very sugary with a touch of honey thats super fresh. Nice! Taste echoes the smell with a nice light sugary taste with sweet honey and a bit of hops showing up with a very slight lemon note that together keeps this nicely balanced and super smooth. Yum! Feel is a lighter to medium body, very clean, soft, and solidly smooth. This is some remarkable stuff, very unique, yummy, and very drinkable in my book. I think I have a new summer brew to add to my list, this summer honey of a brew by Big Sky is a must try.

honey nut cheerio aroma, weak yellow, light hoppiness and honey with some grassy notes, good body and crispness for a summer beer

Ths was really light on the palate but OK Carbonation. Not much flavor, very watery tasting. I agree with the others you could call it crisp, and yes there are far better summer beers.

NABA BeerFest 03: No idea this was a spiced beer, it did taste a little fruity with lots of hops, a good medium over an overly sweet lambic and a hoppy pale ale.

It has little head. It is crisp and light and has a bit of a bite to it. The flavor is very interesting, but rather weak. It is refreshing, but there are better summer brews.

Ligth body and minimal head. Aroma is spicy and fruity and the taste is spicy with a nice mix of honey to sweeten it up. Very light and fefreshing as it goies down.
