In the bottle. Pours a translucent gold. White head which remains, but no lacing at all. Aroma strong of sweet honey. Very pronounced honey flavor. Good body, good taste. I can’t imagine someone not liking this ale. This is no braggot, but definitely as good as a commercial honey ale is going to get what with the sky-high price of honey right now. Might be worth a road trip to Sioux City to see if this stuff is on tap (maybe Schell does not keg it?).

Small white head that maintains a good fizz up top, clear pale golden body. Aroma is light with sweet cookie/honey malt and light hops. Taste is slightly tart (maybe) followed by some sweet honey character. Mouthfeel is ok. Definitely not watery... but could be thicker. Nothing major sticks out, except for the pleasant sweetness. Pretty enjoyable overall.

This beer formed a small sized white head with fine-small sized bubbles that quickly diminished. The body was transparent and carbonated with a golden hue. The nose was malty, sweet and of honey. The flavor of this beer was sweet and also honey. The mouthfeel was smooth, thick and dry. This was a light-medium bodies beer with sparse lacing.

UPDATED: JAN 11, 2004 Thanks again to SlikWily for this fine brew. This bottled brew poured a small head of mostly diminishing fine white bubbles that left behind a softly carbonated transparent yellow colored body and a fair lace. The aroma was made up of honey and malty notes. The mouth feel was smooth somewhat thick and even from start to finish with a lasting honey aftertaste and a flavor of malted honey. A very interesting flavor to say the least. Much stronger than some honey lagers I have had.

Light dry honey aroma. Golden color with a light yellow head. Sweet malt and with a dry honey finish. Alcohol present, much like a malt liqour. Medium body with a fizzy feel. Slightly mouthcoating which distracts a bit. Quite a bit heavier than I expected, considering most american honey beers.
