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

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

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)

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.

shigadeyo (2973) - Harrison, Ohio, USA - AUG 2, 2013

8/10/2011: Cucapa Honey... Aroma: Tons of brown sugar; the honey is not necessarily noticeable, but the beer does smell like it’s going to taste pretty sweet. Appearance: Pale amber color and a bit hazy; lots of small carbonation bubbles sheeting to the top to create a lasting, dense, beige head. Flavor: Ugh. WEIRD flavor! Tastes like some sort of sugary cream and dried leaves; quite yeasty or something; finishes with some dry, earthy and slighty floral hoppiness and some soft bitterness. Palate: Milky/creamy texture; a bit heavy with a medium-full body; smooth. Overall: Really soft and easy to drink, but it was hard to enjoy since it doesn’t really taste that good.

12 fl. oz. bottle (4.5% Alc. by Vol.) from The Andersons General Store in Toledo, Ohio. Rating #86 for this beer.

A decent microbrew from Mexico. Very sweet from the honey in the beer. Has a nice bite and pours a golden yellow. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Draught at Fiebre de Malta, Mexico City. Clear deep golden, small head. Mild citrus and bread up front. Mid sweet with medium body and soft mouthfeel. Bread, lychee and floral citrus in a laid back mix. Mid bitter finish. Tasty, laid back and thoroughly well made.

From old notes. Bottle. Light grains and light honey. Nothing super special. Very drinkable though.

Bière sans caractère, plutôt médiocre. Pas de miel présente aux arômes, non plus dans le palais. Tres plate aussi.

12 oz. bottle from DrSilverworm. Pours a clear honey orange amber color with a medium sized fleeting white head. The aroma is sweet honey, caramel and bread. The flavor is bready, caramel with a hefty dose of sweet honey. There is a hint of dry bitterness at the finish. Nothing really bad about this, it is what it is.
