2.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
Bottled. Poured clear medium golden with a dusting of white head. Aroma was of heavy pineapple and honey sweetness.. somewhat juicy and intriguing. Dry, grainy wheat and honey in the flavor.. sweet.. vegetal finish wasnít so good.. some pineapple bitterness across the middle. Dry on the palate with a rather ugly feel to it.. watery middle.

0.7 AROMA 1/10 APPEARANCE 1/5 TASTE 1/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 3/20
UPDATED: AUG 5, 2006 12-ounce bottle. Pours gold with a medium-sized, short-lived white head. Thereís almost nothing going on here--neutral aroma, and essentially a flavorless body. Well balanced carbonation; not fizzy or raw.

2.1 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
Pours a clear bright golden with a thin covering of wispy white head. Slightly earthy, grassy, and mild pale malty aroma has a hint of floral honey. Body starts with an airy carbonation, giving way to some cardboard and a fairly bland, bittersweet body with lots of buttery diacetyl character. Finishes thin and watery, with very little lingering flavor (thank goodness). Iíll admit this is definitely not one of my favorite styles, but this beer could be done a lot better than it is.

2.7 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 12/20
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.

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.

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Draft at the Tied House. Filtered thin light yellow-tan color. CO2 bubbles, no real head at all. Certainly doesnít come off as a top-notch craft beer. Thin, watery, and dirty. Relatively drinkable in itís own special way. A touch of honey malt sweetness, though pretty insipid overall.

2.2 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
"...the Honey Ale is truely one of the most interesting and unique craft beers available today." So reads the commercial description. What I had was a pale yellow beer with a frothy head that rapidly degenerated into a scummy coating. Nice lacing. But it smelled of canned corn with weak honey poured on. Tasted slightly better, a sweetened malt flavor with a light herbal hopping. Crisp finish. Done.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Appearance is pale and golden while the head is oddly similar to a cola in that it dissipates quickly and loudly. The flavor is typical golden ale, easy to drink and does not have complex flavors to it. Not a top ale but still pretty good for the style and a good session ale.

2.5 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Sampled from 12-oz bottle, picked up from Ryanís Liquors in Madison, Wisconsin. Pours a semi-hazy, light golden blonde brew with a fast dissolving white head that dissolves clean. Aroma of light roasted malt, a touch of citrus hops some fruity pears and a touch of honey. Taste is light bodied, smooth, with just a light honey bread flavor with a citrus aftertaste. Finish is slightly dry with a honey character flavor that quickly disappears. An average light beer overall.

1.9 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 7/20
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.
