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.

Campy877 (167) - Michigan, USA - MAY 15, 2014
Bottle. Pours a clear mid golden color. Aroma, as you would expect, is honey and malt. Taste is very thin though, lacking any real depth or character. As advertised, honey and sweet malt. Barely average. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

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

sfhc21 (74) - Midlothian, Texas, USA - FEB 7, 2007
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.

RSRIZZO (1852) - Colorado Springs, Colorado, USA - SEP 25, 2007
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. Itís a bit light, but would be ok on a nice summer day.

phishpond417 (2088) - Madison, Wisconsin, USA - JUN 4, 2008
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.

WallyWalrus (205) - Minneapolis, Minnesota, USA - JUL 27, 2009
12oz. bottle. Pours a very pale yellow with a thin white head and loads of carbonation. Aroma is light and earthy, with an earthy yeast scent complemented by honey and citrusy hops. Body is light, with an earthy maltiness and some sweeter hops and honey flavors that donít go anywhere in particular. Not bad, but really unremarkable.

Scubatrip (596) - Annandale, Virginia, USA - AUG 23, 2010
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.
