bhensonb (10692) - Woodland, California, USA - JUN 6, 2007
Somewhat grassy aroma backed by llight spice (which might be my take on honey). Light brassy gold color with a frothy white head that laces. Better than thin body. Starts with a definite hit of citrus, turns creamy as the stern carbonation foams away, ends with a very wheat taste accompanied by honey notes around the mouth and citrus oil on the tongue. A relatively complex finish for a light ale. And itís from Coors? Amazing.

brokensail (10530) - Orange County, California, USA - JUL 20, 2010
A: The pour is a pale straw color with a bit of cloudiness and a finger or so worth of white head. S: A light floral honey like note along with plenty of wheat and grain. Also a bit of orange, which Iím unsure as to whether or not it really works here. T: Tons and tons of honey with a light floral quality to it. Again, the orange flavor is there along with some wheat and grain sweetness. A slight biscuity quality to the beer, actually. M: Light bodied with a moderate-to-high level of carbonation. D: Say what you will about Coors or Blue Moon, but this one actually isnít too terrible. I donít know if Iíd really buy this, but there are certainly worse beers.

Leighton (10419) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - JUL 26, 2009
Pretty good. Very sweet almost to the point of syrupy. I wouldnít/couldnít drink many of these brews on account of the sugary sweetness. Color is rich yellow; the head is mild. Taste is honey and sugar. Finishes smoothly.

Tmoney99 (10400) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - JUN 1, 2007
Bottle from Krogers. Poured a hazy golden with a moderate frothy white head that diminished slowly with fair lacing. Moderate sweet citrus aroma. Light to medium body with soft carbonation. Medium sweet citrus flavor with a light sweet finish of short duration. Soft summer brew worth trying once.
