Brewed in a traditional style, the Honey Ale is a golden blonde ale with a slight hop flavor and aroma. Highly carbonated with a thick frothy head and creamy texture, featuring a unique blend of 100% pure Wisconsin honey and three types of two row malted barley. Seasoned with four varieties of hops, the Honey Ale is truely one of the most interesting and unique craft beers available today.

I remember when this first came out and won a Gold along with their Oatmeal Stout in GABF in Denver at the same time. I rated this and the review got lost. Anyway, this beer is nothing like what it used to be, which was clean, crisp, subtle and a true pleasure. Now, itís soft, thin, overstated and totally forgettable. A pity.

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.

Light-bodied beer that isnít all that beery. Not much ale flavor. More lagerish, IMHO. Nice sweetish honey aroma. Enjoyable, easy drinkiní session brew.

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.

Thin white head off fine bubbles. Vegetal notes and some sweet malts. Maybe some honey in there. Medium gold in color. Thin watery flavor with some more sweetness and a bit of bready malts. Pretty thin in many ways. Dry pasty finish and lacking flavor and any depth. While not offensive in any way, not worth the time.

12oz bottle via trade with buckybeer - Thanks Mark! - Pours pale golden with a short white head that faded fairly quick to a ring. Aromas of honey, light grains, and maybe a touch of corn. Flavor is grains, honey, and some light hops at the finish. Palate is light airy and pretty crisp.. Nothing very remarkable about this really..

Nice to try another product from Grays, and also nice to get into a new Honey Ale after a long drought.

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 canít find much to like in this one. So sorry, I really held up hope, but itís just not working out. too, too blaseí...cheers to anyone out there who digs this, but donít count me among the crowd. I really like the bee on the label, though. Pity thereís no close-up available here, heís really a demented looking bug!

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.
