Hazy blonde pour, frothy head. Very sweet and citrussy. Overwhelms malt and hop flavor, this is a bad thing. Average at best.

Has to be one of the best honey beers I’ve had. Not strong, not sweet, nice and smooth. Great on a hot summer’s day.

Crisp and refreshing, the honey really did come out in the nose and the finish. I drank this at the beach and I cant think of a better place to drink one.....light and girlie, but it had a nice taste.

taken as directed: cold from the bottom of the fridge on a wilting august scorcher-- when only moments ago i was sweating like a rented mule. yellow as a yield sign, light haze, with a sudsy white dome. a balsa and lemongrass aroma with a sour note; a gossamer honey suggestion that likely would not attract bears. very citrus, lightly sweet, somewhat metallic rather than bitter, smooth and adequately quenching. a reasonable segway from yardwork to an elegant IPA.

Aroma of honey and butter. Slight citrus flavor in body. An average brew.

Saved these 3 bottles from my June Beer of the Month Club shipment for last. This brew
pours a clear sparkling honey (imagine that!). The generous creamy white head is fully
lasting with good lacing. The pleasant nose is honey, spice, citrus, cream cheese and
dough. The flavor is on the sweet side but some hops are detectable. The medium body
has a lively creamy feel. This is infinitely better than Michelob Honey Lager, but could
still use heaps more hops to be something truly special.

My dad keeps bees and has arthritis in his shoulder. He believes firmly in ’bee sting therapy,’ meaning one of his sons catches a bee with tweezers, out of a jar, and places its angry, twitiching body on his shoulder. He says it works. Anyway, this beer certainly does not offer anything like a therepeutic sting: its honey is subtle and ghostly and the beer is mostly grainy, when not sliding ephemerally away from you. Not a good mud season brew - try it when the bees are active!

See that ’commercial description’ listed above? That’s the most accurate one of those I’ve ever read. Nice sweet smell, and a light honey taste. Enjoyed it, and will look for it again.
