2.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
Pours a golden clear beer with a not very long lasting head. Smells like honey obvious. Not that much aromas. Taste is very flat. Honey taste and very sweet of course. Dont like it. Very bad palate. Almost no carbo, small to medium body. Sticky texture. Dont like honey beers and this is a bad honey beer.

Looks like a pilsener, clear golden with a small white head. Well, at least this honey beer has a lot of honey in it. Striking in its aroma and very present in its taste. It makes it a bit onesided, but hey, if you want a honeybeer, that’s what you;ll get!

Pours yellow/straw, small white head. Aroma is malt, some straw. Flavour has a bit of grass. No off flavours so better than average for the style... I couldn’t distinguish any honey really, maybe it made it a bit sweeter.

33CL bottle at home, not very interesting beer if you ask me, it has a honey taste but it stays in the mouth too long not a beer i would recommend

This might even be worse than the kikbier, to which I’m comparing it. The honey is very apparent, which is unfortunate because a slightly more subtle addition may have added the sweetness and body that would’ve improved a kik-style beer.

3.1 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
300 ml bottle, poured into a lager glass at home. ABV 4,5%
Deep golden in colour, with one finger of hite head, going down straight away, but leaving eventually a thin film to cover the beer’s surface. Average activity in the glass.
Heavy aroma of honey, along with lots of malts.
The taste is much better. Quite sweet of course, with the honey flavour being quite intense. Very slight bitterness on the aftertaste.
Medium on the body, average carbonation.
I don’t think it could be my favourite but it was somewhat enjoyable. It would be even better though if the honey taste was more discreet and not so straight-in-your-face.

33cl bottle from Terra Vitae, Puerto De La Cruz. Clear pale golden with a white head. Aroma of honey and malt with hints of fruits and flowers. Quite sweet with a distinct flavour of honey. Quite nice and drinkable honey beer. (2013-01-05)
