COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Brewed in a traditional style, the Honey Ale is a golden blonde ale with a slight hop flavor and aroma. Highly carbonated with a thick frothy head and creamy texture, featuring a unique blend of 100% pure Wisconsin honey and three types of two row malted barley. Seasoned with four varieties of hops, the Honey Ale is truely one of the most interesting and unique craft beers available today.

On tap at the brewpub, pours clear with a decent head. A little honey in the nose, a little honey in the taste. Flavors did not increase even as the beer warmed. Better than the Golden Light, but still a sacrificialy light beer.

A new line for my grocery store, thought I’d try it since it is a regional brewery. Keepin’ it local, yo. Poured clear, light amber, with no head. Slight honey aroma with hint of yeast. Could barely taste the honey over the fizzy carbonation. I LUVS me some hops, didn’t taste a single one. I honestly felt bloated after 8 oz. After I let the beer breathe for about 45 minutes, the fizzy went away and the honey taste became more pronounced. I cant recommend this, will probably hide it in cooler at a party.

I’ve tried a few honey ales and was never blown away by them. This one is no different. Golden pour with an aroma of honey, flavor is somewhat sweet but nothing memorable. An ok beer.

drowland (6100) - Valdosta, Georgia, USA - AUG 13, 2010
8/14/10. 12oz bottle courtesy cbfobes! Clear golden pour (a little darker than a Bud Light) with a fizzy white head that fades to nothing fast. The aroma is cream corn with a hint of honey on plain bread. The flavor is bland pale malts, soapy pool water, and again a hint of honey on bread. Huge meh here, folks.

arminjewell (6294) - Minneapolis, Minnesota, USA - FEB 9, 2010
Pours golden with white head, aroma is floral with some malt, taste up front is a bit sweet and fruity, goes into sweet from the honey and goes into a light finish. Not bad.

noncaloric (684) - Madison, Wisconsin, USA - SEP 25, 2009
Very pale gold with an active white head, some decent but temporary lace. Effervescent. Pleasant floral honey and malt aroma. First sip is similarly sweet with a husky carbonic roughness to it. Thereafter nearly flavorless. Seriously nondescript. The beer is more felt than tasted, has a nice dry chalkiness to it that saves it from descriptors like ’watered-down’.

Draft at the Tied House. Filtered thin light yellow-tan color. CO2 bubbles, no real head at all. Certainly doesn’t come off as a top-notch craft beer. Thin, watery, and dirty. Relatively drinkable in it’s own special way. A touch of honey malt sweetness, though pretty insipid overall.
