An extremely drinkable beer. On tap it is even better...and inexpensive. Light brown in color, it has a decent aroma of honey. Not much palate, but it’s a fairly sweet beer that goes down very easily.

rollinsr (492) - Atlanta, GEORGIA - JUL 21, 2015
Pours dark gold with ample frothy head. Aroma is musty yeast with glass off-notes. Flavor is very plain cheap pilsener. The honey is obviously there just to soften the blow of this fairly crappy lager.

tfontana (156) - Fremont, New Hampshire, USA - JUL 11, 2015
Bottle from Epsom Circle Market, Epsom NH. Aroma is bready malts and yeasty dough. Appearance is clear golden brown with finger-width head with poor retention, minimal lacing and nice sparkle. Taste is lightly sweet. Palate is medium bodied with lively carbonation that’ll cut through a dry throat on a hot summer day. Overall, pretty much what you’d expect for the style but not a real strong aroma or taste. In the right situation, this hits the spot.

swesson (290) - Highlands Ranch, Colorado, USA - JUN 3, 2015
From a bottle at Carmine's. Pours a light Amber color. Makes a thin head. Almost no aroma. Tastes pretty bland, but has a bit of sweetness. Not special at all. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Jabah (205) - Winter Park, Florida, USA - APR 28, 2015
This is one of those beers that I used to order in clubs or bars when they didnt have anything better. It’s a better than average beer, but doesn’t have much flavor besides sweet malts and honey. Not much hops in the taste....the opposite of a BOM. Medium brown appearance, kind of clear. Good for daytime or for mowing lawns when you don’t really want "lawnmower beer".

Draft. Amber-brown beer with an off-white head. Light caramel aroma. Sweet malt and light caramel flavor. Medium bodied. Sweet malt and light caramel linger with very light mineral notes.

odinstyr (604) - Howell, New Jersey, USA - MAR 16, 2015
Pours a clear amber with a small white head. Smells like bread, cloying. Taste is overly sweet, hint of actual honey, taste like a soda more than a beer.

Brandon1989 (437) - Euless, Texas, USA - JAN 28, 2015
There was decent smoke with this beer. It poured a darker gold with a small white head. The aroma is honey and very sweet. I also pick up wheat, wet grass, corn, and water. The taste reminds me of a basic macrolager with sweet honey added in but that is not a knock to it. There is a little bit of bitterness and corn in the flavor.

HIGHB4LL (835) - Fort Collins, Colorado, USA - JAN 5, 2015
12 oz. bottle thanks to Gary. Appearance: 3 fingers tan head, golden color, clear, good lacing. Aroma: honey, caramel. Palate: light body, average to soft carbonation, cloying sweetness, sticky texture. Taste: sweet honey and maltyiness that lingers. Overall, poor balance, honey is a bit too much for me, not something I enjoyed drinking.
