Nice ale, honey flavor goes perfectly with the hoppiness. Smooth drinkable beer another good one from central waters.

Bottle from Brian at JBís. Yes, JB I helped get rid of one of these so it would not be sitting in your fridge forever. Lightly hazed dark straw color with a moderate white head. Lightly grainy and a bit of dry honey and herbal hops in the aroma. Bready flavors with a lightly honey sweetness in the background.

Bottle from Brian. More body and flavor than I expected. Weird clove and grass nose. Grassy taste. Nice palate and dry finish.

Picked up one as part of a build your own variety pack. Wish I had grabbed more. This is a very nice summer beer. Easy drinking, with a touch of honey. Will have to look for this again.

The bartenders at the Central Waters tap house in Amherst are endlessly patient with new customers. On occasions, Iíve seen people order unavailable items like a Bud Light. The bartender smile politely and explain that they serve only Central Waters beers. "Try our Honey Blonde Ale instead," the bartenders will say. "I think youíll like it." Every time, the bartenders are right. The newly enlightened go away with a well-balanced ale that has a strong malt backbone and snappy, bitter finish.

Meh. One of very few misses from CW. Not bad, just predictable and boring. A grainy blonde ale with some honey sweetness.

hfmejias (1245) - Marshall, Minnesota, USA - NOV 28, 2015
12 Fl. Oz. Bottle. Poured clear golden, white head and some lacing. Aroma of bread, some hops and some honey. Taste is bready and malty with a touch of honey. OK beer, easy to drink.

euniceradio (397) - Worthington, Minnesota, USA - OCT 29, 2015
12oz bottle to tulip. Pours hazy straw gold, tiny white head. Aroma of honey, oats and light toffee. Taste is sweet malts, honey, citrus juice, cracker and some light citrus bitter. Finish seems to have a bad fake sugar/aspertame flavor. Mouthfeel is med-light with lots of carb. Good drinker/lawnmower beer.

On tap at the brewery. Iíve had this many times. Light pale straw body. slightly bitter taste with a touch of honey. This is a pretty easy drinking beer.

akoeninger (631) - Wisconsin, USA - AUG 9, 2015
Pale golden, honey color. Nice white head that dissapated quickly. Light floral aroma with subtle honey notes. Flavor is pale malts, some biscuits, light floral and bitter hops with a touch of honey in the finish. Well balanced, clean, crisp, medium carbonation. Very drinkable, light and subtle, refreshing. Goes well with hot sunny days. This is a solid example of a the more subdued cream ale style.
