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.

Does not look like much, no head, just pale lager without any real visible co2. Smell is simply crisp and clean. Woo, there is a goodly amount of co2 in there on the tongue, fer sure. Taste is a little like slag. A fairly easy to get along with beer, not over the top in sweetness, never cloying. No real bitter attributes make this easy to drink. Finish has no ill effects that I can speak of. Overall just a decent beer that provides a good beer drinken experience. Would not hesitate to buy again, better than any of the cheaper pale lagers I drink.

Not great. Just not a whole lot of flavor. Tastes kind of like a macro swill with a tinge of sweetness.

OhioDad (2493) - Hilliard, Ohio, USA - SEP 25, 2006
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..

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.

This beer is really pretty decent, but still nothing much to it. I like some more complexity.

Drake (8029) - Free Union, Virginia, USA - AUG 26, 2011
12 ounce bottle from Woodman’s West Madison. Pours a slightly hazy gold color with a large white frothy head. Good head retention and lacing. Aroma of honey, grain and very faint hops. The taste is cereal grains, honey, faint nuts and hops. Thin-medium bodied.

Strykzone (4842) - Wood River, Illinois, USA - AUG 11, 2008
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.

bhensonb (10816) - Woodland, California, USA - JAN 25, 2009
Bottle from Beer Geek. Amber tinged golden color with a disappearing white head. Aroma is rather citrus. Light bodied with creamy carbonation. Flavor is pale malt with mild citrus hop. It’s not really sweet, but there is a touch of honey flavor. Finishes more dry than not. Refreshing.

This pours a clear, pale amber color with a slight, white head. There isn’t much to the scent other than some hints of grain and honey. The taste is fairly average but does have a decent honey taste that is better than Leinenkugel’s Honey Weiss. The texture is pretty watery with very little carbonation. Clean and refreshing, but nothing mind blowing.
