COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Brewed for the royal wedding. A fusion beer based on Belgian golden ale and honey ale. First gold, saazer and cascade hops along with Leatherwood honey from Tasmania gives a strong but soft beer. The hops reminds you however, that you are actually drinking beer.

ToolHead (266) - København, DENMARK - NOV 7, 2004
Draught at Nørrebro Bryghus. Served in Nørrebro Bryghus IPA glass. Hazy orange. Small, lasting head with good lacing. The aroma is dominated by delicious and very natural honey notes, and delicate, flowery hoppiness. The taste is pleasantly sweet, dominated by honey and balanced by nice hoppiness. The mouthfeel is soft and slightly prickly on the tongue. Surprisingly dry finish. An interesting, complex beer.

Sigmund (5120) - Tau, NORWAY - NOV 5, 2004
(33 cl bottle). Orange colour, slightly hazy, moderate head. Moderate aroma of malts, nuts, honey and flowery hops. Honey is surprisingly subdued in aroma and flavour - this is definitely a beer, not a mead. However, honey adds a moderate sweetness to the flavour of a beer otherwise dominated by plentiful hops. Lagerish mouthfeel, a bit too carbonated for my taste. Bitter-sweet finish, bitter aftertaste. Not 100% well balanced in my book, but still a decent beer.

Bottle. Dark golden with small head. Low carbonation. Honey and flowers in the nose. Flavor of honey, malt and earthy hop-bitterness. Full bodied.

jonas (5643) - Garching b. München, GERMANY - OCT 12, 2004
UPDATED: JAN 1, 2005 0.33cl BottleHoneyish, flowery and grassy aroma. Hazy orange amber, lowish carbonation and head. Belgian golden ale roots are evident in the flavor, fruity (apples,kiwis), spicy and a little bit belgian yeast funk (miniscule bandaid), honeyish notes detectable in the background. Exits nicely on grass and pine needles. Complex brew. Unexpectedly full body. Soft mouthfeel. I was sceptical when I saw the price (3.7 euros for 33cl), but all in all it was well worth it.

Hildigöltur (5103) - København, DENMARK - JUN 16, 2004
[Draught] Deep golden coloured.A very delicious and complex summer brew. Loads of fruits and flower. Hoppy finish. Very smooth. Itis rather sweet, but not cloying as beers with honey often are.

rauchbier (3610) - Isle Of Beer, Lincolnshire, ENGLAND - JUN 7, 2004
Tap, DBF 2004. Amber gold, moderate head and condition. Pronounced honey aromas along with sweet malt. Honey again in the mouth with a slight fruity berry edge and a developing herbal note that lingers in the finish. Sweet throughout with little in the way of bitterness to temper it but pleasant none the less.
