Aroma is a mix of grains/malts and sweetness from the honey. The flavor is sweetish malts mixed with sweetness from the honey. Not much in the way of hops except for a passing note in the finish, this was decent enough despite the lack of balance.

Onslow (1160) - Kalamazoo, Michigan, USA - MAR 3, 2012
Pour from a 22oz bottle Clear amber brew with fizzy white head. Aroma of grass, a little skunk, honey. Taste is light grains with a little honey and crisp grassy bitter finish. Light palate. Refreshing and tasty.

AirForceHops (3174) - Epping, New Hampshire, USA - FEB 7, 2012
22 oz. bottle from Table and Vine for $5.99. Strange amber color with a gold like hue. Small, soapy head in the pint glass. This is real straight-forward here folks. Nose and taste mirror each other: Grains, light honey and malt with a light hop to add weak bitterness. Easy drinker and is exactly what is advertised.

Bottle: pours a tan honey honey color with a tan head. It had a slightly sweet, yeasty aroma. It’s got a great hop bitterness that is well balanced by the honey sweetness. Well done beer, and a pleasant surprise.

DrSilverworm (6365) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - AUG 12, 2011
UPDATED: MAY 11, 2012 12oz bottle. Mildly hazy dark orange color. Minimal white head, not really any lacing. Awesome bitter-sweet taste. Mostly malty aroma, hops and honey are definitely present. Lemon. Sharp carbonation, however. Mexican-tasting, somehow.

Rerate, 5/10/12:. I forgot I had already rated this. Little (minimal) white head, bubbles on glass. Clear amber orange color, lighter carbonation. More dry texture. Noticable honey aroma, light hops. Nice light sweet taste, some bitter. Better than I expected - not bad at all. Some toasty malts. [Overall score lowered from 14 to 13, Appearance lowered from 3 to 2, Palate increased from 2 to 3.]

EithCubes (4885) - New Jersey, USA - AUG 7, 2011
Bottle. Nose is sweet yeast and fruit. Very dark golden-amber pour with a sudsy tan head. Light/watery body with low bitterness, grainy, a little dust and earth. Smooth and crisp, if a little depressing.

Nephilium (1356) - Ohio, USA - AUG 7, 2011
Very faint aroma of malt, pours a clear light amber with just a dusting of head. Grainy taste, with no sweetness at all. There’s a bitter off flavor in the finish, and almost no other flavor at all. Drinkable, but just barely.
