Pours golden colored with almost no head. Aroma is honey with hints of grape. Taste is just great similar to a light mead. It is very refreshing and sessionable.

Faint aromas of biscuit and orange. Clear copper appearance with almost no foam. Sweet flavors honey, biscuit, barley, wheat and grassy resin. Noticeable alcohol on the finish. Overall, a very unique and curious beer. Smooth and enjoyable with honey overtones.

Sam really took this beer and made a historic challenge. Im sure the story behind this beer was some what embellished. Ive watched the people drink this and are confused and don’t quit understand the input to create this piece of history. Well done Sam.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottled, 355ml from Bellingers Garage, Grove, Oxon. Hazy orange gold with no head. Sweet, wine like flavours, quite heavy on the palate. The sweetness is quite honeyed in character, there is also a heavy fruitiness. I wasn’t over keen on this mix I have to say, slightly disappointed.

Golden with thin rimming white head; sweet aroma with distinct grape notes and hints of grain; Flava of sweet grapes and notes of grain; feels rich thick and smooth; finishes long and semi- dry as the grape flavors linger but gradually fade

Interesting beer... cant say I loved it, but not terrible either. A sweet beer that goes down almost like wine...

Tap at Smith’s Billiards, Springfield, 19/05/13.
Clear pale golden with a good sized white head.
Nose carries cereal notes, grain, light citrus, grass.
Taste comprises light caramel notes, sugars, pale malts, grain, cereals, grass, light spice, honey.
Medium bodied, surprisingly so for a 9% brew, fine carbonation, crisp finish.
Ok for the experiment it is, clean and easy drinking for 9%!
Would I go back to this - nah !!
