3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
First tasted this in Gabriels, Paisley in April 1997. Cask, handpump dispense. Pale orange amber in colour with a thin creamy white head. Sweet floral note of honey evident in the short aroma. Thin mouthfeel and good lacing. Pale malt gives a sweet shortbread biscuit base with refreshing clear honey flavours not cloying in the mouth. Dusty hop resins add a slight bitterness to the short aftertaste. The smooth finish has a warming alcoholic mead note which slips down a treat. One of the better honey style ales out there and a refreshing summer session ale. Well recommended.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
A very good beer with the honey aroma shining through but the cranberries are almost non-existent unless that it they are there just to give this beer a slightly bitterer edge than the common or garden honeydew.

White head on a nice orange body. Very fruity, the honey is obvious but I couldn’t sense any cranberries. Very nice drinking in the Spring. Nice combination of fruits and hops.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
The aroma is sweet and fruity. The color is a beutiful orange and it has a beutiful head. The flavor starts out is nicely sweet malty with strong notes of honey before the bitterness from the cranberries hits the palate. The sweetness turns a little funny artificial in the end. An OK beer but for the artificial note.

3.7 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Extremely obvious honey aroma. Nice dry flavor. I really can't sense the cranberry. A pleasant beer, in spite the lack of cranberry this one is still better than the normal Honey Dew.

1.3 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 2/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 4/20
Very very sweet and very very thin. The large amount of honey in this beer makes it very unpleasant. And the cranberries are not very noticeable.
