COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Brewed with orange blossom honey, this golden ale delivers a hint of honey flavor, a subdued citrus note and a crisp, clean finish.

poured yellow with an ample head. smelled like a rancid hamburger and body oder. tasted like trash run off. I could hardlsy stand to drink it but some how finished. The worst beer I have ever tried. If it had been the first I would have stuck with tea. I’d honestly perfer Old English 8.0 to this. And I never tasted honey which I was under the impression was the point.

On tap at the Flying Saucer in Charlotte. Golden body with a diminishing white head. The flavor and finish are fruity and kind of sour. I didn’t really catch any of the honey that is apparently the basis of the whole beer. Not too bad.

Jeppe (2631) - Ølbutikken, DENMARK - NOV 17, 2004
Hazy golden body, disappearing white head. Rather cloying butter and honey aroma. Sharp and somewhat sour fruit and honey flavor with a buttery subtone. Uninteresting.

Ewww.. Disgusting sweet honey aroma, with some sour hints. Golden body, small white head. Sourish flavor, and then honey. Honey is not good in beer...

Bottled: Light golden coloured. Clear. Off white medium sized head. Honey and malt in the nose. Honey a bit too dominating for my likings. Sweet honeyis flavour. Some fruits present. Thin watery body. Ends on a very sweet note. A bit cloying. Not a beer I’ll run for.

Pailhead (4414) - Brownstown, Michigan, USA - NOV 5, 2004
Bottle: Strong orange aroma with light honey. Pours a cloudy honey color with a pretty big off-white head with great retention. Lots of sediment. Flavor is watery citrus and honey combination. Some fruit. Light sour citrus finish.

Pour was golden with a slight soapy head. Sweet aroma. Flavor is sweet but not really what I would call "honey".

Surprisingly "sweet." By that, I mean that in my experience, beers that claim to be made of this and that usually have very little of this and that, at least in the taste. This, however, is different. Not too sweet to not be enjoyed as a good session beer or at a Foghat concert.

Poured orangey amber with thin fading white head...smelled a little of honey, but also grassy...I agree with everyone else...this beer lacks a certain "Je ne sais quois"...not bad, but ultimately quite far from outstanding...grassy malty body, a little bitter...finish has the slightest hint of alcohol, but I was quite shocked to see 6.1% on this one...
