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.

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 (7423) - 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.

DSG (7623) - Tel Aviv, - OCT 4, 2008
Bottle. Pours clear golden color with a medium bubbly white head that diminishes quite rapidly. A rather fresh aroma of hops (with some herbal hints), flowery notes and honey. Sweet flavor with a big honey character, some malt, hints of caramel, some fruitiness and a mildly bitter finish with some hops. Medium-bodied. A bit too much honey sweetness for me to really enjoy, but still not bad at all.

Beltramelli (471) - Campinas, BRAZIL - SEP 29, 2008
Coloração dourada-clara intensa, creme denso e persistente. No aroma e no sabor, o mel está presente, valorizando a proposta dessa breja. A sensação é de uma cerveja um tanto suave, mas com personalidade. O final é longo e doce, também com a presença do mel. Fácil de beber e muito refrescante.

Archibaldo de la Cruz (1121) - FINLAND - SEP 7, 2008

NoiZe (2323) - Amersfoort, NETHERLANDS - SEP 4, 2008
Yellow colored brew. Aroma has got some honey in it. Flavor has got a lot of honey and a bit citric. A bit too sweet and a bad aftertaste.
