COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
This deliciously refreshing golden beer is made with honey from the heather covered moorlands of the Scottish Highlands. Pure and natural, it is cold filtered and unpasteurised for exceptional flavour.

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.

wheresthepath (1621) - Buckinghamshire, ENGLAND - OCT 9, 2014
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.

The Etruscan (544) - Tuscany, ITALY - OCT 4, 2014
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.

floydian1 (1059) - FNQ, Australia, - OCT 3, 2014
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.

Pours clear pale yellow. Small lacy white head. Hardly any aroma. Lively, hints of grapefruit. Honey comes through on the finish.

sarauckelman (215) - Durham, Durham, ENGLAND - JUL 26, 2014
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.

spacecube (974) - Leeds, West Yorkshire, ENGLAND - JUN 30, 2014
500ml bottle, pours light golden brown with a white lasting head and carbonation, aroma is sweet malt, honey, citrus notes and cardboard. Finish is sweet and malty. OK, but not my thing.

downender (6526) - Bristol, Gloucestershire, ENGLAND - JUN 20, 2014
Bottle from the Broadmead, Bristol Marks & Spencer branch as part of a 6 UK beers for £10 deal, which proved to be excellent value. Golden in colour, with a slight, white, head, and moderate carbonation. Easy drinking, sweetish, beer, with some floral hops, hint of honey and gentle finish. Fine.
