3.5 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
The aroma is dominated by honey sweetness with background cereal. This is a very pleasant beer but not a style I would choose to drink to often due to the sweetness. It is definitely worth a try though.

2.8 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Bottle from M&S Reading. Deep gold with a small white head that rapidly disappears. Too fizzy for my liking. The honey is obvious throughout, and it’s nice honey too- not too sweet. There’s a little grapefruit up front, which rather clashes with the honey. Marmalade develops (and works better than the grapefruit), but then there’s some lager-like grassy hoppiness that really doesn’t go. Overall then, the honey was lovely, but was let down rather by a poor base beer that didn’t suit it. Nevertheless, I’ve had far worse honey beers than this.

White thin weak head. Bright golden colour. Aroma is malty, grainy with light floral and honey notes. Flavor is malty too with herbal and light grainy tones, ending in a moderately bitter finish. Light bodied.

2.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
500ml bottle from M&S. Clear bright yellow appearance with a thin but stable white head that laces decently. Aroma is mainly honey with sweet pale malts and a light citrus notes. Flavour is honey sweet with a very mild citrus hop bitterness. Palate is lightish with a soft carbonation. Quaffable but a little too sweet for me.

2.9 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Pale golden color, no head. Not much aroma. Watery palate, a bit sticky on the end. You can definitely taste the honey; it doens’t taste sweet like normal honey, but there’s a flavor in there that couldn’t be anything else. Not bad.
