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.

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

2.4 AROMA 1/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
Had this beer on 10/15/1998. Color is a lightly hazy gold with low carbonation and head. Aroma is full of a honey scent. Taste starts with a light body that goes down smooth. Finish has that honey brew taste that most do but is very light. It’s a bit light, but would be ok on a nice summer day.

Bottle. Nothing in this ale really stood out. The look was great with alot of activity happening. Flavor is almost too bitter and reminds me of a pale lager taste. The honey wasn’t present too much.

Poured a nice golden color with a good bit of white head. Flavor seemed very off and metallic on first impression, a little like licking a nine volt battery. Got better on subsequent sips, but never really rose above mediocre. And if the honey flavor was supposed to be the big shining star, it certainly wasn’t as present as it should have been. Fairly uninteresting beer.

The honey really comes alive as it warms, in both flavor and aroma. Crisp, clean, and very unoffensive. Very light body and not much to it past the honey. Would have again.

2.9 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Pours a clear pale yellow, highly carbonated, with a small white head sustained by said carbonation. Aroma is (surprise) honey. Taste has a yeasty, bready, slightly tart character with little hop flavor. Refreshing and well balanced, would be a great summertime session brew. It may not be your style, but it is what it is.

2.5 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
Bottle pours straw gold with a white head. Aroma shows grainy malt and plenty of honey. Flavor is basically the same with some grassy hops on the finish. Overall body is light, somewhat sweet, and finishes lightly bitter.

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.
