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. There’s almost nothing going on here--neutral aroma, and essentially a flavorless body. Well balanced carbonation; not fizzy or raw.

2.6 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
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.

2.3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
Bottle. Mostly clear pale orange pour with a minimal white head. Aroma is cereal grain, grass, and maybe just a hint of sweetness. Lighter palate. Taste is not offensive - some grass and light hop - but not interesting or all that good either. Hot day on a boat? Sure, I suppose.

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.

"...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.

2.5 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
This blond ale pours a light yellow gold color. Small sized white foamy head. Aroma is fruity and sweet, with some honey. A light to medium bodied blonde ale. The malts are fruity and sweet, touch of honey that strengthens as the beer warms. The hops are slightly floral. Kind of your run of the mill blonde ale. Nice body and good carbonation. Is has not real flaws of note, its just not all that interesting to me. Mouthfeel is full. Finish is clean and smooth. Aftertaste is slightly sweet

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 Ryan’s 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.

2.3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
Very clear medium gold body with a thin white head. The aroma is cheap apple juice with some honey and pears. The taste is definitely a dry honey, if that makes sense. The honey is there, but far from sweet. There is a hay like finish with a light body and low carbonation. It’s ok.

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.

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.
