2.5 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
Sua espuma apresenta aparência inicial média e irregular, cor branca e reduzida longevidade. Apresenta boa formação de colarinho em seu corpo claro e de rala densidade, além da tonalidade dourada já esperada. O aroma, também restrito e corriqueiro ao estilo, apresenta notas de canela, mel e um tanto de massa crua. Seu sabor inicial apresenta moderado dulçor e leve acidez, tornando-se levemente doce e amargo no final, este de curta duração. No paladar sorve-se um corpo médio-leve, de textura aguada, forte carbonatação e final de sensação metálica.

Bottle, 10 days overdue acc. to best before date.
Slightly cloudy yellow, with a small white head. Was totally alive when i opened it, had to rush to the kitchen sink with a volcanic bottle.
aroma : pilsener like aroma, honey, hops,peaches, a little cardboard.
flavor is honey, slight bitterness, slight sawdust, very tasty and refreshing, but a little too far on the sweet side to be -for me - a real session beer.

<i>Bottle.</i> Pours a hazy amberish golden with a diminishing white head. Sweetish malt and hops in the aroma. Slight milky notes as it warms. Flavour is malty. Notes of cereals. Faint hops. Malty finish with a bit of honey notes. Milky notes as it warms. Kind of boring. <i>30-11-08.</i>

Bottled version, Golden blond coloured beer with some light carbonation and a small white head. Herby sweet malty aroma with some light yeasty and honey touch. Medium to full palate. Finish is light bitter sweet, honey light touched with a longer dry and herby ending. Rather nice actually

4.3 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
500ml bottle from Tesco. Dark honey colour with tight white head. Nose is, unsurprisingly, sweet with citrus and flower undertones. Initially sweet malt (thought not overly so) it has a complex bitter/sweet/dry finish. Nicely balanced, this is far better than I expected after the horrible experience I had with its former 4.3% incarnation. Fullers have produced one of the few honey beers that isn’t overwhelmingly honey-sweet and I’ll be seeking out the cask version ASAP.

1.7 AROMA 2/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
Headless Lucozade pour fizzing out in seconds, even in a weizen. Congealed fat, candlewax, unscented soap, paper towel and faint beeswaxy aroma (why do honey beers never smell of honey?). Custard slice, cornflake and disinfectant flavour. Sickly buttery popcorn afters. Endless sweetness without balance. A tipper.

I thought this beer would be a total write-off. It was incredibly enjoyable, however boring. Since my expectations were greatly exceeded it is likely that my rating is too high.
