bhensonb (10343) - Woodland, California, USA - JUL 14, 2008
Bomber from South Bay Drug. Amber color with a head that went away quickly. Aroma of sweet, honey, malt. Near full bodied with mild carbonation. Flavor is malt, light honey, and hop. This is a surprising ale. Honey, but not sicky sweet. Finish is neither dry nor sweet, and it’s fairly balanced. Actually pleasant to drink. A substantial ale. How unexpected.

Well holy shit this beer looks like honey, smells like honey and tastes like honey. Crazy. Not really that great, but if you like honey then give this one a try.

Ernest (6031) - Boulder, Colorado, USA - JUN 3, 2009
Bottle. Head is initially small, frothy/fizzy, off-white, mostly diminishing. Body is medium amber. Aroma is lightly to moderately malty (caramel, toasted grain), lightly hoppy (apricot, flowers), with a strong note of diacetyl. Flavor is moderately sweet, lightly to moderately acidic, lightly bitter. Finish is lightly sweet, lightly to moderately acidic, moderately bitter, unclean. Medium body, watery texture, lively/fizzy carbonation. I think they may have ran out of honey in this batch and substituted diacetyl instead. Phew-ee!

AmEricanbrew (5522) - Same Trailer, Different Park, Louisiana, USA - OCT 28, 2008
Clear amber with a fizzy white head. Nice floral honey aroma. Light/medium body. Decent malty sweetbread flavors with a fermented honey essence. Crisp clean finish. Not too bad.

BückDich (5464) - McCall, Idaho, USA - AUG 23, 2008
Bottle: Pours a bronze copper color with a nice tan head and decent lacing. The nose is very rich with caramel, diacetyl, honey and herbal hops. The flavor has a thick chewy diacetyl character but it works well with the crisp hop bitterness and honey sweetness that blend together towards the front of the tongue. Snappy bitterness but too much honey and diacetyl notes.
