3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
It has a golden amber color with excellent clarity. The head is thick and white in color. It hangs on for a short time and recedes to a thin cap that leaves very little lacing. There is a sweet bread malt aroma with some honey. It has a simple bready malt flavor with some sweetness from the honey. The hops are light and add just a hint of bitterness to the finish, which is crisp and clean. The texture is refreshingly smooth with a light to medium body and an average carbonation.

Pleasantly surprised on this one. I didn't have high expectations after picking up a 12-pack for the same price as 6-packs of most other variety of beers at Walmart. The flavor is a good malt barley with some sweetness/honey. Off-white head, deep amber color, good lace.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
As many times as I’ve had this in my life, I figure what a better day than to say something on this beer. This is coming from my notes.
I’ve had this beer poured into a pint glass and a pilsener at various times in my life and there really isn’t much difference.
The appearance was a nice golden amber to close to a brown color more so in the center. There was a one finger white foamy head that fizzles in about less than thirty seconds and leaves barely any lacing.
The smell had a large amount of roasted caramel malts with a nice nuttiness about it.
The taste was nutty and sweet and combined nicely. There’s a slight nutty aftertaste leading into a decent dry malty finish.
On the palate, it sat at/about a light to medium on the body with a decent sessionability about it. The carbonation is smooth and clean and inoffensive.
Overall, this is not a bad beer at all, though it seems to have an identity crisis on just about every beer website one looks. For whatever style this beer truly is, its just an all around good beer. Try it, you might be surprised. Oh and I almost love having this beer with a steak.

2.2 AROMA 1/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Clear amber with hardly any visual carbonation in the form of tiny bubbles. Small fizzy head that quickly dissolves. Slight skunk aroma. Not sure of the age and purchased in a six pack sampler from Kroger. Medium body with good malty taste. The Honey additions are barely noticeable which is good. The taste is the best thing about this beer. This would be a top notch beer in the category If they could improve on the appearance and aroma. Clean malty finish.

Light and thin, good taste but not too intense. You can taste the honey but it is not overwhelming.

From the archives: March, 2012. USA. This beer reminded me of Russian honey infused lagers. Sweet, yet not unpleasant. Tried to find it in shops afterwards, but to no avail in FL.

2.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 12/20
Clear brownish copper pour. Aroma is malty with a honey note and a hint of yeast. Flavor is malt, honey, and artificial sweetener. This isn’t a bad beer. I wish the flavor was more intense though. Good flavor just too light and thin

Clear golden amber pour with no head. Aroma of grain, malts and faint toffee. Taste of corn, grains and a touch of honey. Good thing this beer was free!
