Amber pour with no head. Aroma of honey and wheat. Flavors of dish soap, piney and resinous hops, mild sugar, and a bitter finish.

Sdaniel90 (406) - Mexico City, MEXICO - MAR 21, 2010
Bottle, 330ml. Pours a deep orange/copper colour with a small white head, medium carbonation. Aroma is of hop and carbonation, pretty poor. The taste is a nice honey sweetness complemented with great bitterness. Good.

hayduke (3470) - Eureka, California, USA - MAR 4, 2010
From a 12 oz bottle courtesy of Strykzone. This poured medium brown with a small light brown head. Nose of caramel malts and floral hops. Medium body and OK mouthfeel . The flavor is kind of bland with some light hop bitterness. The finish is somewhat sweet, maybe because of the honey. Decent brew.

thegreenrooster (3304) - St.louis, Missouri, USA - JAN 30, 2010
Pour is a clear brown with a small white head. Aroma is deffinatly a strong dose of honey mixed with some hop resin. Flavor is a big let down after that. Watery and bland with only a fraction of the honey i got in the aroma. Looks and smells great just not much after that.

cheap (4208) - Beaver Valley, Beaver County, Pennsylvania, USA - JAN 27, 2010
Fairly clear and brownish pale yellow. Little visible carbonation. Smell is a tad sweet, like candy. Good malty sizzle on the palate at first. Has a mild bitter drawl. Interesting fruity palate. Finish is somewhat like bitter iceberg lettuce. Yes, it does smell like honey but the flavor on the finish lacks the honey character.

Strykzone (5072) - Wood River, Illinois, USA - JAN 7, 2010
A wonderful nose is rich malt and honey. Appearance is medium to light brown and it is clear with little visible carbonation. Tiny head that seems to leave more lace than it could. The flavor doesn’t live up to the sweetness promised by the aroma. Hops are much forward than expected and they offer a surprising early bite. As the palate adjusts and the beer warms the hops fade a bit allowing that malt and honey to step up. Finish is fruity which surprises once again. Aftertaste is sour. This is balanced at the extremes with sharp tart hops and quite sweet malt and honey. Nothing in between. Truly interesting, unique, and flavorful. Nicely crafted.

Aggie80 (785) - Michigan, USA - JAN 1, 2010
Sweetness in the aroma as the golden color poured into the glass. Limited head and lacing. Definite honey and malt in the flavor and a touch of hops in the aftertaste.

RAYBOY01 (2012) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - DEC 25, 2009
Dark amber/gold pour (like honey) and a moderate white head. The aroma is sweet with notes of moderately roasted caramel malt and honey (no noticable off-notes as some others related). Flavors are relatively rich caramel malt, bread dough, sweet honey, floral hoppiness. Decent and repeatable Mexican beer that surprised me.

Silphium (3179) - East Lansing, Michigan, USA - NOV 29, 2009
Bottle shared by badnewsbeers. Hazy, honey-colored body, thin off-white head. Sweet, tangy nose with honey and biscuit. Thin body, watery, pretty much tasting like carbonated water with honey and light leafy, soapy notes. Easy to drink and inoffensive, but bland.
