2.9 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
well you have to love a huge 32 oz oilcan full of any beer. pour has a light golden color and a covering of white head. aroma has light honey, grains, and some musty bread. mouth feel is light and there is plenty of carbonation initially. flavor has a bit of minerals, mild bitterness, wheat, grains, and some honey. this does the job intended and actually warmed on me as the second glass flowed.

NOt so good, it was a little greasy and strange. Goldy but not clear. Tehre was little about the honey and less about the almond in it.

2.6 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Quart can. Pours a cloudy yellow gold with a moderate white head that disappears within the first two sips and leaves no lace. Weak aroma of sweet honey and not much else. The flavor is equally mild with perhaps a touch of wheat grain and a bit of honey sweetness. I’m not sure where the almond comes in, because there is none to be found in this beer. Light bitterness at the finish. This is a good lawn mower beer, and at $2.99 for a quart, fits that purpose well.

2 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
Yea, agreed with Frank here, the 32oz can is impossible not to buy! Pours thinner bit cloudy sand color with a small bubbly head. Aroma is a bit of brown paper, light sweetness, nothing too distinct, actually seems like there is a touch of acidity like in a Berliner. Flavor follows, light and drinkable, nothing too offensive but nothing of note, again that faint perception of a touch of acidity, not really sure about the honey or almond part, refreshing and light. Carbonation was super low and body was basically water.

1.6 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 6/20
From their double pint monster can servings. Pours a clear yellow with a tall, large bubbled head. Aroma is very grainy, mild vanilla and honey sweetness at the end. Flavor has an early honey and grainy bite, a sweet lemon fruity middle and a strong nondescript nutty flavor. Body is light with a a high amount of carbonation and a slightly sweet, very light tartness to the brew. Pretty crappy. Flavors just don’t work one bit and the texture has a pretty funny feeling too.

2.5 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
When I see a beer in a thirty-two ounce can, I buy it. That is just the kind of rater I am. I was worried about two things based on the name of this beer one was that it would have horribly intense nutty flavor from some horrific over-addition of flavor extract and the other was that it would horribly sweet like Dundee’s Honey Brown. Thankfully, this is neither though it is really not a fantastic beer by any stretch. The cloudy golden orange color is attractive enough but there’s almost no head immediately after the pour. That is bad for any beer that hasn’t come out of a cask but especially bad for one that claims to be a wheat beer. The nose here is slightly nutty malts and not much else though some lightly lemony hops do come out once you taste it. This is pretty much a cloudy blond ale. I am not sure what the almond and honey add but it’s not much. Light bodied w/ fine prickly carbonation keeps things rather drinkable and while I can’t say much positive about this beer, drinking thirty two ounces of it is not going to be some kind of horrible challenge.

3.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Pours a slightly cloudy, yellow with small head. Decent carbonation. You can definitely smell the almond. Crisp brew with a slight hint of citrus with honey in the finish.

2.3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
Yet another "nee Gleuk" beer, obtained at the Binny’s in Willowbrook, IL: Interesting commercial description listed here, nowhere to be found on the 32-oz can. It poured a somewhat hazy yellow body with lazy bubbling and a fizzy head that disappeared rather quickly. The aroma was lemon juice over some light bready malt. The flavor was much the same, the lemon getting strong enough to annoy. The finish was tart lemon. Drinkable, but, why?

2.7 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 11/20
Bottle, pours a hazy amber golden body with a white head. Dry dank malt tones, burlap sack dryness, hints of nuts, and mashed malt (oatmeal like tones). A hint of sweentess amongst the oatmeal like malt body. Flavor is rather muted dry like a nut shell finish with a mild sweetness maybe a slight honey note, however its still very lack luster.

2.8 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Clouded yellow pour with a white head. Slight nutty aroma, almost too faint to notice. Taste is bland- there is no distinct taste of flavor in what the label suggests. Better than mass produced swill.
