A flavorful and refreshing wheat beer made with a light Munich malt, honey malt and local honey. Warrior and Mt. Hood hops add a crisp finish. At 6.2 percent ABV, it features honey aromas followed by a robust honey flavor. Roof Top Honey Wheat is available exclusively on draft at dining outlets inside Chicago Marriott Downtown Magnificent Mile hotel.

Draft at the Marriott Mag Mile. The Marriott have made beer from the beehives on its rooftop since 2008, including with Half Acre, so it’s interesting no one on RB has been able to catch up to it until now. Light amber color with a thin edge of foam around the perimeter. Smell has just the "edge" of mild sweet honey… but not too sweet. More recognizable trace of honey on the palate. Very light spicy dryness from the wheat malt. The alcohol is a bit warming, so just above the "sessionable" range. When I finished it, I got an aftertaste that said "honey," but not "sweet." Tasted during my panels on Beer Culture at the Popular Culture Association Conference at the Marriott in April.
