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 (5029) - 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 (4634) - 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 (1261) - 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.

nuplastikk (4132) - Madison, Wisconsin, USA - JUN 21, 2011
12oz shorty bottle. Amber-tan color, this white head. Macro factory honey malt aroma, some metal. Pretty insipid stuff, tries to cover the weak malt and hop bill up with a weak honey dose. Medium bodied, quite thick for the low ABV. Pretty much a fail, hints of fruity amber malt and honey at best. Some way distant, characterless hops. A shabby beer, glad I didn’t buy a 6pack.

beerguy101 (5267) - Newark, California, USA - JUN 7, 2011
Sampled on 6/7/2011. This blond/golden ale pours a very slightly hazy orange gold color from a 12oz bottle. Small to medium sized white foamy head. The aroma is grassy, grainy, fruity and honey. A medium bodied blonde/golden ale. The malts are fruity and sweet, mostly pears and honey. The hops are herbal. Decent carbonation. The honey flavors are quite evident, but it is not very sweet. Actually for a blonde ale, it’s kind of hoppy and has a dry finish. Not quite what one would expect from a honey ale. Mouthfeel is full and round. Finish is clean and dry. Aftertaste is slightly sweet.

heemer77 (5080) - Urbandale, Iowa, USA - JUN 1, 2011
Hazy light copper colored body with a thin off white head. The nose is grainy with hints of pears and honey. The taste has a little bit of the honey along with a lightly smoky wood character. There is a hint of grapefruit, especially in the finish. This was actually quite enjoyable at first. However, the smoky dryness took over and it was a little much.
