2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Sample at the brewpub. Honey-blond, bit of head...honey, coriander and hints of berries in the nose. Slightly yeasty, very creamy and nicely malty, with a gasp of hops. Clean and refreshing.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
tap at brewpub-pours a nice blonde hue with minimal white head-aroma is sweet with some fruity notes-flavors are sweet, but not like honey. the honey adds a sweet malt element that goes along with the earthy hops in this one. another good brew from this brewery!

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Sampler. So I get to add the rating that gives this beer a ranking. I feel the weight of both power and responsibility! Here goes: a bit of lace in the glass (in fact, all the samplers I tasted showed good head retention and a bit of lace). Light coriander note as promised, but not too much. Additionally, I detect a slight weizen style banana nose. Pretty good, even though it’s still in the light range.

2.7 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 12/20
Draft at carlyle. Pours a dark gold with minimal head. Aroma is sweet with coriander and spices. Taste is light sweet and light bitter. Coriander with dirty malt and a little herbal hops. Light bodied with a thin texture. Soft carbonation and not much of a finish. Meh.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
On tap at the brewpub, pours a clear golden with a thin head, the aroma is sweet with a good amount of grain and a little bit of fruit, the flavor has some fruit and orange on the front end with a sweet finish, wow, this one actually surprised me a little bit, not bad.

3 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Golden honey ale, that I’m surprised is listed here as an amber. Minimal bitterness, it reminded me of a George Killians Irish Honey. Nothing groundbreaking happening here.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Translucent yellow-gold in color with a solid sheet of off-white for the head. Aroma is honey, hops and carnations with a hint of vanilla and anise. Crisp and sweet at first touch. Honey really plays a matchmaker game here with the hops, but somehow the honey is going stag by the finish. Some resin/lemon traits and bread like crispness. Light and sleek, and not a bad starter beer.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
Golden in color with a small, white head. Rather yeasty aroma, with coriander notes giving a pretty good Belgianesque first impression, a true surprise. Sweet, lightly malty flavor with more of that yeasty Belgian fruitiness. Moderately carbonated, with a grainy, lightly sour finish.

3.1 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Arrived from tap a nice clear, golden color with a thick, bubbly head that quickly fades down to a film. Aroma is has a light noble hops note, light caramel, sweet fruity note with some light honey undertones but the overall aroma is pretty light. Flavor starts off with a slight watery floral hop flavor, light vanilla, light honey with a smooth light malt note. Low density and carbonation, no lacing is left on the glass and the overall flavor is modest but quickly disappears. Overall a good brew and one that is hard to offend. Perfect for a few pints due to the low alcohol and pretty decent flavor for a light brew.
