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

Slick (1969) - Thief River Falls, Minnesota, USA - AUG 10, 2003
Pale straw color,small white head that faded quite quickly.Malty aroma with a mild honey note,4 kinds of hops and none are detectable in the aroma,Interesting.There is a fairly sweet side to the aroma as well.Light malty taste,sweet with only a light honey presence.The after taste is mild sweet malt with very nearly no honey presence,and the hops still haven't shown up for the party.Watery feel kind of macroish in many ways.Is this a good brew no,average at best it is fairly drinkable but little else as far as goodness goes.

Not great. Just not a whole lot of flavor. Tastes kind of like a macro swill with a tinge of sweetness.

Clear light gold color with a medium white head. Aroma of honey and malt. Not very sweet kind of stale that finishes dry. I found something off about this beer. Like Leinenkugels Honey Weiss it tastes alot like Bud lite.

JPDIPSO (4956) - Wauwatosa, Wisconsin, USA - MAR 23, 2003
Bottle. Slightly hazy straw colow with a somewhat thin white head. Light grass, dry honey and touch of DMS(cream corn) in the aroma. Hazelnut flavors and touch of dry malt. I've had this on tap before and found it more enjoyable than this sample, but maybe it was the best choice out of a bunch of macros.. I'll rerate if a fresher sample warrants.

Nothing to special about this one. Kind of watery and weak tasting. If you really need to drink a honey beer, go with Linney's and avoid this.

Drinkable, but then again so is water. And yellow water is what this most resembled. A little hint of honey, but other than that I couldn't find much to get excited about.

Pjones6738 (500) - Madison, Wisconsin, USA - JAN 3, 2003
Pale, pale yellow, with no head. Smells honeyish. I agree with Muzzlehatch on this one, it tastes like a pilsner. Dull. By the way, I bought this in a Holiday sampler pack. 2 each of 4 styles. Turned out to be 2 styles of beer, and 2 styles of hard lemonade. Bleh.

Terminus (3229) - Las Cruces, New Mexico, USA - DEC 16, 2002
UPDATED: OCT 2, 2003 this tastes alot like leine's honey weiss, but with more flavor-an excellent beer for a hot day(but its cold up here in the midwest these days)

I am not a big fan of honey beers, but this one suprised me. Not an overpowering honey taste. This was a darn good beer. I enjoyed drinking it while watching Summer Slam.
