Drinkable, but then again so is water. And yellow water is what this most resembled. A little hint of honey, but other than that I couldn't find much to get excited about.

Poured 12 oz bottle into pint glass. Light yellowish cloudy color. Small white head. Kind of bland at first and then the honey taste kicks in. There is a lasting aftertaste of honey and butter with an oily texture. Okay, but not great.

Iím aware that this is supposed to be a lighter beer, but that doesnít change how bad it was. Virtually no aroma, taste, or feel. Will not be having again.

A beer with a lot of honey - that sounded good at the liquor store. Big Let down. A very light transparent washed out yellow color, a foul aroma, a watery taste. What's worse I've tasted more honey by getting stung by a bee! Kind of acerbic unpleasant aftertaste. Maybe it was so bad b/c expectations were high.

A new line for my grocery store, thought Iíd try it since it is a regional brewery. Keepiní it local, yo. Poured clear, light amber, with no head. Slight honey aroma with hint of yeast. Could barely taste the honey over the fizzy carbonation. I LUVS me some hops, didnít taste a single one. I honestly felt bloated after 8 oz. After I let the beer breathe for about 45 minutes, the fizzy went away and the honey taste became more pronounced. I cant recommend this, will probably hide it in cooler at a party.
