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.

Halfling_4132 (58) - Essex, ENGLAND - MAR 14, 2016
Appearance- clear golden honey colour with white foam. Aromas: honey, malt and a touch of orange, makes me think of wholemeal toast with honey. Palate: light bodied, smooth and creamy. Taste: Malt and floral herbs. Overall- Good session ale with interesting sweet notes, recommend to try. Would be better enjoyed in the warmer months outdoors.

lokis333 (275) - Biržai, LITHUANIA - MAR 14, 2016
Clear gold, pale lager like color with small white foam. Aromas are herbal and malty with smooth grassy and honey notes. Smells like meadows, more on the sweet side. Palate medium body with lighish, sticky texture leaving nice smooth, refreshing honey finish. Taste is sweet of honey, grasses, herbs and light malt. Overall, nice sweet beer one of better beers to have word "honey" in the title, not tasting of water but rather of actual hone but still light. I did quite enjoy it.

Pours gold woth a deep white head. Aroma weak, fruit, malt and a hint of almond. Tate sweet honey but a little tangy. Could take it or leave it.

jamestulloch (3009) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - FEB 17, 2016
Bottle. Clear golden body with a medium white head. Steady carbonation. Faint lacing. Aroma of honey, grass and cardboard. Flavour of sweet malt, peanuts and light toffee. Medium body with a smooth mouthfeel. Soft fizz. Simple but a touch too sweet for me.

berkshirejohn (5677) - Bracknell, Berkshire, ENGLAND - DEC 4, 2015
50cl bottle from M&S, Camberley. Pale amber with a rapidly dissipating white head; honey aroma; musty honey taste with some citrus fruit; and a dry honey finish. The honey is dominant, but also quite subtle.

Bottle from Marks and Spencer Team Valley. Pours pale gold with decent white head. Slight sweetness but not much else flavourwise to be honest. A little bland
Earlier Rating: 12/23/2014 Total Score: 3.4

ClubGonzo (5070) - Bergen, NORWAY - JUL 2, 2015
Bottle. Pours a clear golden body with a small white head. Nose is caramel, nuts, straw, heather honey and hints of pale malts and light syrup. Taste is pale malts, grass, floral heather tones, honey and hints of nuts and bread. Light body, medium carbonation. Quite all right, though not astonishing.
