1.5 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 5/20
Big 20 beer tasting at Three Cellars Milwaukee.
I found this disappointing. The Honey was more like a cough drop than anything. Very medicinal in the feel. Weak and thin on interest.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
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.

2.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 8/20
Very pale gold with an active white head, some decent but temporary lace. Effervescent. Pleasant floral honey and malt aroma. First sip is similarly sweet with a husky carbonic roughness to it. Thereafter nearly flavorless. Seriously nondescript. The beer is more felt than tasted, has a nice dry chalkiness to it that saves it from descriptors like ’watered-down’.

2.3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 8/20
On tap at the brewpub, pours clear with a decent head. A little honey in the nose, a little honey in the taste. Flavors did not increase even as the beer warmed. Better than the Golden Light, but still a sacrificialy light beer.

Bottle - from sampler pack. Medium golden color, slightly cloudy. So so. Very little flavor.

2.6 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 11/20
A - Very bright, clear gold color with an average sized, foamy, light, whispy white head. Disappears pretty fast leaving a very thin lace.
S - Very strong herbal and floral aroma with a lot of bready/malty sweetness along with a bit of a vegetable/corn type of aroma. Somewhat reminiscent of honey, but a little heavy on the vegetable, and maltiness.
T - Really thin and fairly bland. Dominated by corn/vegetable flavors as well as some malt sweetness that you expect from a bland adjunct lager. A faint spicy herbal flavor in the background. Very slight lingering sweetness.
M - Very light with moderate carbonation. Very thin and watery.
D - Easy to drink, but it is way to bland to want more. Not overly sweet, just thin and easy to down.
Notes: I’ll probably pass on this one, got it for $3.99 a sixer so not like I’m really out much. Too bland and like a bad adjunct lager. A little bit of honeyish flavors and some more on the nose, but nothing to write home about.

2.2 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
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.

2.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 7/20
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.

12oz bottle to tulip. Pours clear gold, dissipating head. Aroma of honey, cereal, wheat, caramel apple and bubblegum. Taste of honey, grain and caramel. Pretty much just a lot of honey. Like I’m drinking chamomile tea.
