3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Golden ale with a thick white head, collapses quickly. Has the bottle is opened, honey comes out right away, very pleasant. Sustained honey with grains in aroma. Nice malts, with light sweet honey in mouth, with some light hops, and creamy mouthfeel. Decent honey beer. Thanks to Piscator.

For some reason I am not so keen on additives in beer such as honey so I approached this one with caution.How wrong can you be? This is a floral tasting ale that is smooth and refreshing.
With plenty of body and a smashing aftertaste it is one worth seeking out.

Bottle at some pub in Wimbledon. Clear golden body with hardly any head at all. Sweet aroma, doughy with some honey and malt. Didnít do much for me though. Light flavor, kind of crisp. But some definite honey notes. Nice to try some different Fullers beers though.

UPDATED: JUL 19, 2011 Golden body with a lasting white head. Malty aroma with a strong grass and honey note. Flavour is a good match of malt, hops and honey with a creamy mouthfeel.

The honey seems to be on the back palate and at first taste it was quite harsh afterwards it wasnít so bad but still not that great. Colour was almost coppery golden with a very short lasting head. Aroma is of honey and dough. Flavour was pretty straightforward with the honey late in the peace, a watery texture with an almost chalky finish. Gets better towards the end of the bottle.

Aroma: crystal sweet, light melony and corn syrupy vomity lagery overtones. Appearance: perfectly clear classic amber colour. Head pours well but made of big bubbles, dissipates fairly quick. Flavour: sweet crystal, some almond and a touch of bittering hops. Finishes with a bit of sweet melon and slightly herbal bitterness. Palate: thin and bubbly.

3.5 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 16/20
A very clean, refreshing beer with summer flavours. Nicer to drink when its hot than most lagers, it doesnt have too strong a flavour or leave you with a mouth full of hops or bitterness when your trying to escape the summer sun.
a seasonal drink, and a very good one.

1.6 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 4/20
Sampled at the Hung Drawn and Quarted in London, England.
The aroma was faint. Completely faint. Some notes of slight citrus, mild grain and a little bit of honey dew.
Bland. Macro-like. Slight citrus and slight honey and other fruit notes but not much at all. At the time I just wanted a Fullerís brew that was not available in the states. I should have just gone for the ESB.
