Cask Conditioned handpump Wig & Pen Northampton. A golden beer with a white head and lacing. A biscuity taste with reasonable balancing and not overpowering honey. Thereís more honey in the nose than the mouth. Iím not usually a fan of honey beers but this was pretty nice.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Gravity cask runner, The Fat Cat, Colchester.
Excellent white lacing, perfume, grass, grapefruit and honey on aroma.
Grapefruit, sweet malts, caramel, honey and a nice descent succulent hop bite which holds. Some grapefruit and citrus in the mix. This is a local brewery in Colchester. This is a session ale which should be seasonable to May as I reckon it is an ideal spring beer. Great stuff either way.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Cask - The Fat Cat, Norwich. A cloudy amber with an initial fine white head that eventually dissipates to a single layer of foam. Good hoppy aromas with notes of caramel and orange. The flavour begins with some sweetness, progresses with a hint of honey sweetness and finishes with some grapefruity, orangey citric bitterness. Good mouthfeel, medium body and a pleasant, lasting bitterness.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
one of the best honey beers Iíve ever tried. It pours a lovely deep golden yellow, a nice waft of malt, citrus & acacia honey on the nose. The palate has an initial burst of honey sweetness that for a split second you think will overpower everything, but then a blast of refreshing juicy citrus & a nice hit of bitterness kicks in to balance everything out beautifully.í

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Cask conditioned at The Cider Shed, Norwich. Gold with white head. Fresh tasting, and really quite honeyed and sweetish, almost tongue coating and quite flowery. I had hints of lavendar, imagination? I’m not normally that keen on honey ales but this is quite reasonable.
