3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
The aroma of honey hits as soon as the bottle is opened. Pours a clear light gold colour with a creamy white head and some carbonation. The head soon disappears, but the beer remains lively to the end. Taste is not surprisingly dominated by honey, with some hop to balance. A very pleasant drink on a summers day.

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Bottle. Pours a fairly nice looking gold with lots of bubbles and an average size diminishing foamy white head. Mild aroma starts grainy with malt and sugary yeast -- the honey is pretty faint, Iím not getting much out of it at all. Flavourís also grainy with yeast and a minimal amount of honey, it seems to show up mostly in the finish along with some herbal hops. Medium bodied. Meh, itís alright but mostly this is pretty boring, it tastes like a bland Pilsener thatís a little too sweet.

2.9 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
It looks like floating honey! Although it is not that fat : ). The smell is like the look: An obvious smell of honey, and other naturally sweeteners reaches your nose without problems. The beer is medium-bodied, has a lot of honey, a little of malt sweetness, and a little of hops, but it isnít very well balanced. However, I donít think it is supposed to be, because the honey HAVE to be obvious. The aftertaste is with honey too, but also with some hops. I think it is personal whether the honey becomes to much or not, and therefore it is also personal whether you think this is a good or a bad brew. You canít say it is brewed in a bad way if you donít like it, because it is really supposed to taste like this. Personally, I think it is a great brewed beer, but boring allthough it has a good and powerful honey taste.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Great golden body to it with good carbonation and a pur white head that turned into a thin lacing fairly quick. Aroma is subtle with a bit a fruit, hops, grains and a hint of sweetness. Taste is quite mild and smooth. Not very complex with some grains, malts, bread and a very little bit of hops. The finish is the key to this beer. Very smooth and slightly sweet with the honey showing through in the end. Probably one of the best honey ales Iíve had to date and would be great on a hot day. Perfect for someone just getting in to drinking beer.

2.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
Orangey golden and clear with minimal white head. Aroma is hoppy with some honey. Flavour is sweet, lots of sugar taste but not really a honey taste. Has some malts but the sweetness dominates to the finish.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
UPDATED: AUG 8, 2006 500 mL Bottle: Now here is a good summer beer for those who enjoy honey lagers or cream ales. If you donít, you may find this a little sweet (as I did). Golden colour, little white head that disappears. Not much flavour here other than honey & toasted malts. As with all light lagers or ales, donít let this warm up too much or it will taste really, really thin! Refreshing and very smooth when very cold, decent beer for what it is.

Straw body and colour. A bread heavy - wheat drink. Lots of grains in the aftertaste. The smell has a hint of sugarcane and is a bit sweeter. Did Canada request this? Did we need something to meet the stupid LCBO requirements? Anyway. This is not typical of fullers.

2.5 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
Bottle from LCBO. Golden yellow body with a tiny white head that fades. I have smelled this aroma somewhere before but can not firmly place it. Honey, toasty malt, and something that reminds me of a cheap grainy pale lager. Light toasty malt in the flavour with a healthy dose of honey. Average palate. Rather dull and not particularly good. Aroma in a neglected glass a few hours later is quite sickly.

2.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 8/20
Pours golden yellow with thin white head. Strong sweet aroma of hops and honey. Taste is surprisingly bitter and not as sweet as anticipated. Not a favourite of mine, but thereís plenty of worse out there.
