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.

Clear golden orange colour with flaky sediments; Smallish to minimal head and very thin white foam which dissipates in 20 seconds. Almost no lacing with lively carbonation; Light, persisting aroma of honey underlying sweetness plus orange and faint malt; Light and comfy sweet taste of honey, faint malt and citrus; Light body, thin palate with no hop bitterness throughout. Slight dry after taste, very easy to mouth.

Comments: this is mild, light-hearted and refreshing. The smell and taste of honey was not as overwhelming as I thought but in a low-key manner. A nice thirst quencher in hot Summer.

The beer is dull. At any way. The honey aroma and taste is very delicate. A regular pale ale with sweet touch. Easy to drink but the aftertaste getting bad after couple sips. Not my stuff.

Kauge (369) - Tallinn, ESTONIA - DEC 15, 2014
Tap at Veltins in Tbilisi, Georgia. Near clear light golden colour, white head with nice lacing and ok retention. Served very cold. Nose (as I’ve let it warm) is not the kind of natural honey I’m used to in Estonia - more like the kind inside Lockets... Which I’m really not fond of... It nevertheless feels quite fresh, with citrusy and floral notes to accompany the honey. As it’s warmed some more, more malts come forward. Taste is similar to Lockets, with a sidenote of somewhat grainy malts. Sweetens as it warms. Still not as sweet as I’de have expected it to be. Carbonation modest, body medium, palate veering somewhere between thick and sticky, and grainy dry. Very good if you like honey-infused stuff.

Gul öl med vitt skum. I doften finns en del hö och malt tillsammans med en honungssötma. Detsamma återkommer i smaken. Något för söt för min smak.

Pours a clear golden color, topped with a decent white head. Malty aroma, some noticeable notes of honey also present. Slightly sweet and honey-like taste. Easily drinkable, not too strong on he honey. Nice.

shoestring (287) - larkhall, SCOTLAND - DEC 6, 2014
Ive not seen a better looking bottled golden ale. Nice tight foamy rocky head that lasts. Lovely warm full mouthull. Subtle natural honey lingering amongst complex sweet bitter. Honey comes through at end. Nice one indeed. Not rating it til foinished pint in case it sickens. No reason to think it will though. No . Excellent. And i dont ususally like flavoured beers. 2 in a row now i liked. Must try waggledance and compare with this now.

Klar guldfärgad med ett medelstort vitt skum. Dofter av malt och honung. I smaken desamma samt en lättare fruktton. Inte så söt som befarat.

RhetoricalAns (387) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - NOV 14, 2014
500 mL bottle. Golden pour, medium white head. Grainy malt aroma, some honey sweetness. Body is on the lighter side. Taste is fairly light too, not overly sweet with a surprisingly hoppy finish.

Bottle. Aroma washing cloth, pasteurization. Clear golden colour, moderate duration of head. Taste is the same, disgusting. Bad.

Cimbasso (256) - - NOV 9, 2014
Golden colour with a white head. Aromas of malt and honey. The taste does not suffer from too much sweetness from the honey, but is well-balanced, with a good, rich maltiness and pleasant bitterness matching the sweeter honey flavours. A very well-made and well-balanced beer. This is also excellent when experienced on draught. A really nice summer beer, with a high drinkability rating. Fuller’s hits the mark again!
