Nice honey golden colro with a moderate foamy head. Aroma of sweet citrus and honey that went along with the crisp refreshing taste. Smooth and tasty.

haddon90 (1466) - Denver, Colorado, USA - JUN 15, 2005
Purchased this 12oz bottle from Total Wine in Manassas, VA. Pours a deep, golden color with a very, very thin head. Faint aroma. Some sweetness, and some malt. Sweet flavor. A hint of honey, but nothing great. Some citus notes as well. Decent for the summer.

Gold Coloring with White Skin. Light Honey Aroma. Sweet Malt, with Refreshing Honey Notes. Drinkable Summer Ale.

SpudClampDawg (1029) - Jasper, Indiana, USA - MAY 21, 2005
Honey colored pour is topped with a spritzy, white head. Some sweetness in the aroma is overpowered by a ’plastic’ flatness. The body is light and sweet, with an enjoyable prickly mouthfeel. Interesting and a nice summertime beer, but not worth buying again.

szkot (100) - Minnesota, USA - MAY 20, 2005
Pours a light gold with very little head. Aroma is malty, lightly honeyed. Flavor is straightforward, with a slight sweetness. A very nice, easy drinking beer for summer.

thedm (4935) - Fort Wayne, USA - MAY 16, 2005
This bottled brew poured a small sized head of mostly lasting finely sized white colored bubbles that left behind a softly carbonated slightly hazy brown colored body and a good lacing. The aroma was mild with light brown malty notes and a very mild but noticeable sweaty feet background. The mildly tingly mildly malty mouth feel smoothens in its finish with a mild malt mild hop flavor and a hint of orange.

Ungstrup (29287) - Citizen of the universe, DENMARK - MAY 14, 2005
A hazy orange beer with no head. The aroma is very sweet with clear notes of honey. The flavor is sweet and very carbonated with strong notes of honey as well as hints of wheat.

biz82 (1328) - austin, Texas, USA - MAY 8, 2005
Cloudy and peach colored with floaters and a quickly lost white head. Noticable honey aroma with some spicy hops and caramel and wet cardboard. Sour. Bad bottle.

jeffc666 (1984) - Fairfax, Virginia, USA - MAY 1, 2005
Clear amber with a dense off-white head that collapses quickly. The aroma is string sweet honey and citrus detectable during the pour. Sticking my nose down in the glass I get lots of raw grain (ceral) and some floral hoppiness. The flavor is also lloaded with honey, much less orange character than in the aroma. A hint of earthiness behind the floralness. Light spritzy body. Dry finish. Very forgettable.

badgerben (4400) - Blaine, Minnesota, USA - APR 30, 2005
Golden color with n ohead. Aroma of very raw and dry honey, like long empty honeycombs. More of the same in the taste with a mustiness over it. I thought this was quite nice; a shame it’s retired.
