2.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
Big dissapointment. Orange/gold beer. Poured a decent ammount of rocky white head that went down to a film quickly. Very light on the bubbs. Aroma was good - nice biscuity malts, but my nose could barely detect the honey. Taste was a huge letdown. Suprisingly yucky sharp bitter hops, some honey and I swear I could taste dirt along with a mystery flavour that Iíll try to identify next time I have one; if I do. This brew hit my mouth too hard. Seems sour but isnít. Very rough feel to it, light bodied...ick. Strage bitter finish. Bottle says there are zesty hops - Iíd agree 100%. I think I drank this too cold. Needs a re-review.

2.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
Pours a light honey brown with a tiny cap that was reduced to little more then spotty bubbles at the top of my glass after ten seconds very boring uninteresting beer that gave spotty lacing at best. Smell is very sweet and fruity, a floral aspect can also be detected in the aroma, I think most of the fruitiness can be traced back to hops mixed with honey but thatís just my guess. Very bready tasting, malts are abundant in this brew, the sweet berries that you notice in the smell also come through in the taste, my god thereís so much bread in this flavor. Beer is ok just a bit boring, itís strange I think I can taste a lingering melon aftertaste but Iím not sure if that what it is or am I just being influenced by the bottle.

2.8 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Bottled. Sparkling golden, coarse disappearing head. Honey candle wax nose, metallic notes, sugariness, biscuit malts and slight herbs, pretty mild. Balanced honeyish flavor, herbal hops, a tad rusty, soapy finish. Medium bodied, low lush carbonation. Boring golden ale with some honey on top, guess this could be a bit more adventurous. Itís not really even refreshing.

Bottle. Very sweet, fruity, strong aroma of honey. A little white foamy head and a golden body, looks like a Scotch. Light bitter taste, a little bit fizzy, not sweet. The body is dry with a normal carbonation.

2.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 7/20
Aroma is very strong and malty. It has that typical fullers ale smell. It looks fantastic. Great golden colour,almost like a glass of honey. Flavour is very sweet and malty. Palate is dominated by honey. All in all, Not bad for a honey beer. But not great.

2.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
Smells of malt and honey, but mostly of malt. The appearance might be the most interesting part, hazy and golden with a bit or a red hue to it. The smell mirrors the taste exactly, malty with a bit a of honey but mostly it taste malty. Itís alright, but I wonít seek it out.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
I tried this beer on tap on April 9, 2009 at "Smokeless Joeís" in Toronto, Ontario, Canada. The beer poured a hazy yellow-gold colour with a 1" thick white head. The aroma was grainy malt, some honey, and some hops. The mouthfeel was full-bodied, slightly creamy, and medium carbonation. The flavour was slightly hoppy with some grapefruit flavour coming through. A very refreshing beer which went down easy!
