2.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
Very strong hone presence. Id almost call it a bottle of honey with beer rather than a beer with honey. Its alright, but more than half a bottle is too much. Like they say, a spoonful of honey is good, but a jarful will make anyone throw up... Had on tap at South Bar in Bariloche.

Draught at El Regional in Sam Martin los de Andes, a cloudy gold with a large foamy head. A clover honey aroma. A good honeyf lavour, but subtle, with a good hoppy bitterness that gives it balances.

2.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Has a color pale cloudy Amber. The head is abundant and cremosa. The Aroma is of course of honey, well hard. In paladar the dulzor of the honey, does not let see many shades. Too much honey, too sweet. It is not a bad beer, but this very saturated of honey

2.1 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
UPDATED: JAN 30, 2007 Bottled. Cloudy pale amber, rich creamy head. Heavy balsamic honey aroma. Sweet with loads of honey and bees wax. Medium bodied with rounded mouthfeel. The honey flavour is very obvious, and "in your face", leaving little room for nuances. One dimensional, but not bad.

ta, linkovitch. plenty of lychees and shortbread in the aroma. sweet but not ridiculously so and not unpleasant - tastes more like honey schnapps than other honey beers i've tried

Thanks gos out to Linc for this. This is my first Argentinian beer, and i'm glad it was one of the micro's rather than Quilmes or something. This was quite interesting, hazy gold "honey" colour. Aroma has lots of oats and honey. The palate was very mellow and soft, and no way near as sweet as i thought it might be. Although, there is an oaty/honeyed sweetness, but dries out a bit towards the end of a sip. Very oaty, nutty and breakfast cereally (Honey Smacks). Inoffensive and pretty tasty and drinkable

2.7 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Imbibed in December 2002. The only aroma I could detect was of honey. Interesting because the bottle has a whole hop flower in plastic taped to the bottle neck. It is supposed to be brewed with fresh hops. Poured a cloudy yellow gold with thick white head. Obvious honey flavor, some yeast, and that was it besides a lightly bitter hop aftertaste. Quite fizzy on the tongue. Quite a few of these bottles were bad and foamed like mad when opened.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
UPDATED: JUN 21, 2003 Taste of honey on first mouthful gives nice first impression, but soon becomes cloyingly sweet and syrupy. The fresh hops used seem to fight with the honey flavour.
Re Rate: after nearly 8 months of travelling in my back pack, this beer had dried out considerably, the sweetness had mellowed and a more subtle dusty grainy flavour was evident with just a floral hint of hops left, definately better aged.(previous score 2.7)
