Hop_Hedonist (258) - Perth, - MAR 4, 2014
A bit too much malt body to call this a Summer Ale - malt dominant - ends with reasonable amount of noble hops - wish it had been lighter bodied and hop dominant like Stone and Wood Pacific ale (still my gold standard for a summer golden ale). Pleasant enough though, just not thirst quenching for an Australian summer!

This has such a fantastic colour, and is a whole lot more fuller in mouthfeel than you might expected, probably the honey giving it more body. There is also a rawness and hop bite in this that is interesting. Not an unpleasant beer, but it;s not one that hits my taste point with accuracy.

culchiem (2619) - Berlin, GERMANY - OCT 5, 2014
Bottle from McHughs. Hazy orange with a thin head. Sweet peach juice aroma. Sweet syrupy honey flavour, a little spice on the finish, bitter at the end.

Looks fantastic - beautiful golden colour with thick white head. Doesn’t smell amazing, can smell grains and spice of some sort but it’s very muted. Tastes strong and a little sweet, the honey is there on the aftertaste as is some malty flavours but it’s really dull. Density is ok, probably a little over carbonated but not enough to bring it down below a 3. Really average beer, especially considering the strength of the collaborators other brews.

Rangi (605) - NEW ZEALAND - AUG 20, 2014
Hazy golden honey poor. Syrupy sweet aroma, which follows through into the taste syrupy and sweet start to finnish.

Savoury and fruity with golden color and mild foam. Delicious treat on a cold evening.

Bygers (847) - Oslo, NORWAY - AUG 2, 2014
Bottle 0,5l. Pours an amber colour with a fading head. Aroma of honey, spicy hops, floral notes and lots of sweet clean malt. Flavour of honey sweet malts. Some spicy hops. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

IPAgutten79 (602) - Skui, NORWAY - MAY 23, 2014
Oransje farge med lavt skum. Aroma av malt, fruktige toner og noe honning. Smaken er lett å like, her er det malt og honning. Tørr i munnen, med antydninger til humlebitterhet i avslutningen. Medium konsistens. Forfriskende.

Davros (2027) - Melbourne, AUSTRALIA - MAY 19, 2014
Pours amber with a fading head. Nose shows faint honey, spicy hops, floral notes and lots of sweet clean malt. The honey is much more apparent as a flavours, almost cloying in conjunction with the copious sweet malts. Some spicy hops in there too and an assertive bitterness. Carbonation seems a bit aggressive.
