12oz. bottle. Pours a very pale yellow with a thin white head and loads of carbonation. Aroma is light and earthy, with an earthy yeast scent complemented by honey and citrusy hops. Body is light, with an earthy maltiness and some sweeter hops and honey flavors that donít go anywhere in particular. Not bad, but really unremarkable.

Bottle from my niece. Decent honey aroma. Yellow body with white head. Thick honey and malt for flavor. Some chalk left on palate. Was wondering if you soaked some bread in this beer then toasted it what it would be like. But didnít have time for that.

mjg74 (2491) - La Mesa, California, USA - FEB 8, 2009
Bottled. Medium golden in color. Sweet acidic aroma. Somewhat grainy as well. Sweet flavors up front. A little malt and grain. Not much in the way of hops. Fairly simple but not bad.

bhensonb (10938) - Woodland, California, USA - JAN 25, 2009
Bottle from Beer Geek. Amber tinged golden color with a disappearing white head. Aroma is rather citrus. Light bodied with creamy carbonation. Flavor is pale malt with mild citrus hop. Itís not really sweet, but there is a touch of honey flavor. Finishes more dry than not. Refreshing.

Strykzone (4912) - Wood River, Illinois, USA - AUG 11, 2008
Honey gold. Very quick dissipating white soapy head. Moderate carbonation. Some yeast visible. A sweet honey malt aroma. Somehow the honey doesn’t seem to blend with the rest of the ingredients. I either taste honey or caramel and light hop. As it warmed the malt and hops asserted themselves more. Pleasant and very easy to drink.

phishpond417 (2088) - Madison, Wisconsin, USA - JUN 4, 2008
Pretty decent overall. It poured a bright golden body with a full white head that held a soft sweet aroma. It had a very pleasent honey taste, not overly sweet but definately firm with plenty of malts throughout the brew.

jbuzz (752) - Milwaukee, Wisconsin, USA - JUN 2, 2008
Big 20 beer tasting at Three Cellars Milwaukee. I found this disappointing. The Honey was more like a cough drop than anything. Very medicinal in the feel. Weak and thin on interest.

esjaygee (3903) - Oak Creek, Wisconsin, USA - MAY 31, 2008
Pale yellow with thin white head. Aroma of sweet malts and very light honey. Taste of next to nothing but honey and sweet malted accented water. Thin, weak and bland, but Iím not a big fan of this style.

ApisAles (1576) - Greenbelt, Maryland, USA - MAY 25, 2008
Poured a nice golden color with a good bit of white head. Flavor seemed very off and metallic on first impression, a little like licking a nine volt battery. Got better on subsequent sips, but never really rose above mediocre. And if the honey flavor was supposed to be the big shining star, it certainly wasnít as present as it should have been. Fairly uninteresting beer.
