2.1 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 8/20
Golden yellow, but very still, like a mountain lake at morning ... white foam topping. Musty old nose. Very malty essence ... very little sign of any honey here. Just an average beer.

2.3 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
Metallic, grassy aroma. Mild sweet hints. Kind of boring in the nose. Pale straw color thats transparent with a fizzy white head. Flavor is lacking. Very subdued mellow tones. I guess there are some hints of sweetness in the middle. Some light malts, but lacking any sort of hop kick. I prefer the Dundee’s to this.

2.3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 8/20
Ultra-clear,pale honeyish hue, thick, fat fizzling white head, that zips down in nothing flat.
Nose is softly herbal, lightly sweet and honeyed, a little citric, leaning into sour. Not crazy about it, really.
Taste: too, too mild, bearing little in the flavor department, not even the advertised honey tastes. Very light bodied, short on texture, limp in the finish.
Even irritating...I can’t find much to like in this one. So sorry, I really held up hope, but it’s just not working out.
too, too blase’...cheers to anyone out there who digs this, but don’t count me among the crowd.
I really like the bee on the label, though. Pity there’s no close-up available here, he’s really a demented looking bug!

"Hello? Hello taste?! Where are you?!" A borderline clear yellow with a little head. No real hops or malt and barely any honey taste. Not a winner.

On Tap: somewhat of a bummer as I was displeased with the watered down taste. No head and little to make me want another.

2.2 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
pale, straw color with a small frothy head. sweet chardonnay nose, some floral hops. very thin, slightly malty with a weak bitter finish. kind of a fake sweetness. not much to see here (or taste...)

1.1 AROMA 1/10 APPEARANCE 1/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 4/20
A beer with a lot of honey - that sounded good at the liquor store. Big Let down. A very light transparent washed out yellow color, a foul aroma, a watery taste. What's worse I've tasted more honey by getting stung by a bee! Kind of acerbic unpleasant aftertaste. Maybe it was so bad b/c expectations were high.

1.7 AROMA 1/10 APPEARANCE 1/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 8/20
Light, like Lite. Nasty scent, sour and foul. Skunked macro. Taste has loads of honey, some cookie/biscuitish malts. Decent balance, astringent at end. Absolutely nasty as it warms, was decent cold but anything resembling regular drinking temperature gets very unpleasant quickly.

Had this bottled in Stevens Point Wisconsin. Sweet aroma, little head, sweeter than most ales with slight overtones of lime. Decent.
