Hazy straw body with white head. Aroma is medium sweet, caramel, light honey. Taste is medium sweet, caramel, honey. Watery light body. Very mellow beer, with little in the way of distinguishing characteristics, but nevertheless would make a decent session beer based on its drinkability.

Very light colored - maybe like pear juice. No head. Definate honey aroma, but not much rye. Clean and crisp, with some very tasty pear and apple note mixed with the honey flavors. Some of the rye becomes apparent in the finish. Very refreshing.

Tap. Cloude4d bright yellow. Nice white head. Sweet and lemony, yep, that sums this up both aroma and taste. Honey is there and it is good. Lemon dry finish a bit of white bread with the nice rye spice and sweetness. Damn I drank this one fast and I want another.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 11/20
On tap at Nashville brewpub. I liked it. Golden honey warmth with "heart of ’Merica" grain flavors like a mild maibock: corn and rye all over the place. Finish was mild and soft, but displayed subtle honey flavors. Almost clear golden yellow in the glass, with fully diminishing white head that didn’t produce much lacing at all, no matter how hard I tried to make it. Smell was vaguely of honey, but not much in the nose. While this was my favorite of the ones they had on tap this time around, it’s still not more than a session.

UPDATED: JUN 19, 2006 Tap at Nashville brewpub. Yes, this is a session beer, but a solid one. I give good session the scores they deserve. This one is way underated folks. Pours golden orange with a wisp of a white head. Fruity and spicy aroma, but faint. There are evenly balanced flavors of honey, rye, hops, malt. Each sip I pick up different things. Very clean, sweet, and mildy bitter finish. This is what session beers are about. Kevin agrees with me!

Nice amber body with good lacing. Light, wheaty aroma. Bitter rye flavor with peppery hops, a touch of honey sweetness. Bitter, dry finish. Tasty.

From brewpub sampler. Medium hazy gold, little head, which is strange in a rye. Again, no aroma. Little flavor as well. Sweet, maybe some bubblegum? Odd.

The body was hazy light gold with no head. The aroma was honey with flowers and soem cherries. There was some iced tea taste with caramel. The taste is a little light for me.

(On tap) Memphis. Pale amber with a small, off-white head. Distinct, soft honey aroma. Rather light body with mellow accents of malt and a vague underlying sweetness. A very smooth and accessible beer with a subdued bitterness. 280306
