bottle. 355 mL, amber a bit cloudy, faint hoppy aroma. has a nice sweet taste but lack body, descent beer with some chips. i like it but would pick a chupacabras instead. could be better coming from cucapá.

ljthiessen (544) - Winnipeg, Manitoba, CANADA - NOV 2, 2014
Golden amber pour, no head. Light honey and corn notes, mostly malty but light. Not horrible, but quite mediocre. Honey is very understated, while corn flavours dominate. Was expecting more.

Ferris (5245) - Burnaby, British Columbia, CANADA - OCT 11, 2014
Bottle - Sweet caramel and candy sugars. Clear orange gold with a thin white head. Distinct cardboard and pale malts. Not a beer that travels well.

No me disgustó. Mejor de lo que esperaba. Quizá la volvería a comprar. Un sabor distinto.

BLADT (656) - Brooklyn, New York, USA - SEP 12, 2014
Tap. Clean amber. White head. Sweet nose. Honey. Berries. Taste is malt and sweet. Surgery breakfast cereal. Not balanced.

Giochaurand (115) - FINLAND - AUG 30, 2014
355ml bottle. Colour is something between amber and, fittingly, honey. Medium head. Smells of sweet malts and other cerials, bread and yeast. Full bodied, bitter sweet and soft in the palate. Quite okay to drink with food.

Not a giant fan of honey beers and this one isn’t too different from the norm. Caramel and toffee sweetness, medium bodied.

cafgen (146) - California, USA - MAR 25, 2014
Nice medium dark gold color. You cant smell the sweet or honey. Small white head. The taste Of hops or citrus will be more present than the honey flavor. Good beer, but nothing more. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

erickok (3887) - Tours (and Paris), FRANCE - JAN 18, 2014
Simplistic malt bill, light caramel, light amber, not very developed, faint hop mix only. The honey fermented away I think, not much there. Prickly body, Belgian feel, light bitterness. It’s okay. (Bottle from The Beer Box Cancun)

superspak (2913) - Michigan, USA - AUG 17, 2013
22 ounce bottle into pint glass, no bottle dating. Pours lightly cloudy orange amber color with a 1 finger dense cream colored head with good retention, that reduces to a thin cap that lingers. Light spotty lacing clings on the glass. Aromas of caramel, honey, apple, pear, toast, toffee, bread, floral, grass, light pepper, and yeast earthiness. Ok aromas with solid balance of malt and fruity notes; with decent strength. Taste of caramel, honey, bread, toast, toffee, floral, grass, apple, pear, light pepper, and toasted earthiness. No bitterness on the finish; with lingering notes of caramel, honey, bread, toast, toffee, floral, apple, pear, and toasted earthiness on the finish for a short bit. Nice and pleasant balance of malt and fruity flavors; with solid robustness and zero cloying flavors after the finish. Light-medium carbonation and body; with a lightly creamy and smooth mouthfeel that is good. Alcohol is well hidden with minimal warming noticed after the finish, as expected of 4.5%. Overall this is a very solid session amber ale. Solid robustness and balance of malt, hop, and fruity flavors; and very smooth to drink. An enjoyable offering.
