mcbackus (758) - Merritt Island, Florida, USA - JUL 3, 2009
Pours a very clear orange amber with a small white head. The aroma is swewt with plenty of honey and a nice caramelly malt. The hops dont quite balance the sweetness but are very effident somw fruity esters are there giving it an almost english ale character The flavor is veey nice and smooth with a good hop bitterness and flavor. The malt seems to play the background but plays it well the honey flavor seems to be lost in the flavor the fruity esters are there also. Overall this is a nice drinking beer that seems to resemble an English ale to me.

UPDATED: JUN 27, 2014 Bottle. Head is initially small, frothy/fizzy, off-white, mostly diminishing. Body is dark yellow. Aroma is lightly to moderately malty (caramel, toasted grain), lightly hoppy (apricot, flowers). Flavor is moderately sweet, lightly acidic, lightly bitter. Finish is lightly sweet, lightly acidic, lightly to moderately bitter. Light to medium body, watery texture, lively/fizzy carbonation. Simple and easy-going.

joeneugs (3471) - Livermore, California, USA - MAY 9, 2009
Bready, sweet, hoppy aroma. The taste is very hoppy for a honey beer with notes of pine, grass, toffee, and honey. Its really not too bad a beer. Different if not interesting.

glennmastrange (2324) - hobe sound, Florida, USA - APR 26, 2009
Bottle. Light grain and nutty notes for the malt, herbs for the hops, sweat and earth for the yeast, with hints of cooked corn and whiskey. Head is small, fizzy, slightly off-white, with fair lacing and some good legs, and is fully diminishing. Color is light golden brown. Flavor starts lightly sweet and acetic, then finishes moderately bitter and a little sour. Palate is light to medium, watery, with a fizzy carbonation and finishes slightly alcoholic. An average tasting Golden Ale with no noticeable honey as mentioned in the description.

yemenmocha (658) - Glendale, Arizona, USA - APR 25, 2009
Pours medium amber with decent white head that retains ok. Nose has some metallic prickly components and a whiff of honey. Palate has cereal grain, BMC-malt like character, with unpleasant but light hops to balance it out. Not as much honey as one would expect.

Enniskillen (2029) - Salinas, California, USA - FEB 22, 2009
Light amber with a nice off white head. A lightly hoppy mix with honey, light maltiness. Taste is light hops, interesting sweetness to it, a bit of an off taste in the beer.

Sparky (2243) - Phoenix, Arizona, USA - JAN 16, 2009
Bottle. Pours a clear amber with a one finger creamy beige head that leaves spotty lacing. Nose is caramel, honey and light earthy hops. Taste is caramel, light honey and some resin in the finish. Medium mouth feel. Decent beer.

alexanderj (3332) - Branson, Missouri, USA - DEC 17, 2008
Bottle. Poured an orange, bronze color with a small, but compact off white head. Aroma of sweet malt, caramel, honey, bread and some floral hints. For the first time with this brewery, I was a bit disappointed. In all fairness though, I was probably expecting too much from a golden ale. Flavor was a bit too cloying, with a lot of honey and sweet malt. Bready as well, with little hops as expected. Despite my criticism, this is definitely an above average of the style.

Probably th best American honey beer I have tried, at leats in body. Light amber colour.
