COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
A light golden beer with a zesty edge and a hint of honey sweetness, Organic Honey Dew is a naturally palatable brew that finds popularity among lager drinkers as well as ale fans. It’s a popular misconception that only the honey is organic, but in fact the beer is brewed with entirely organic ingredients. It uses organic honey imported from Brazil, plus organic English malt and hops including the First Gold hop variety.

Organic Honey Dew is available in pasteurised bottles and kegs all year round, with a strength of 5% ABV.

danielyabu (1352) - União da Vitória, BRAZIL - DEC 12, 2008
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.

cheeta (1181) - Langå, DENMARK - DEC 3, 2008
Heavy malty and light notes of honey. Huge frothy, white head. Fair lacing. Mostly diminishing longevity. Clear yellow body. Moderate sweet flavor. Light to medium palate with watery texture.

Pinball (11108) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - NOV 30, 2008
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.

NosirIwont (2103) - Aalborg Vestby, DENMARK - NOV 29, 2008
<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>

Bart (2938) - Brussels, BELGIUM - NOV 29, 2008
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

EFC1878 (315) - Manchester, Greater Manchester, ENGLAND - OCT 30, 2008
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.

DruncanVeasey (7439) - NUNEATON, CONF N, Warwickshire, ENGLAND - OCT 19, 2008
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.
