3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Visited the brewery in Denver and had a great time with Bernie, one of the brewers. Nothing like a great friendly brewery! This is a dark yellow beer that’s syrupy, with evident honey character. Very sweet with an underlying malt. Good, but not as good as their others.

2.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
Poured a cloudy orange-yellow with a big white head that disappeared quickly leaving a lasting thin one. Aroma of honey and fruit flavored O’s. Flavor is of honey and a little corn/grain. Lightly sweet. Finish is thin and somewhat disappointing.

2.6 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Medium off-white head atop a clear golden body. Aroma is medium sweet, cereal and honey. Taste is honey and cereal, light grassy. Light-medium body. Pretty unimpressive brew.

This smells of a nice honey aroma. The flavor is quite lacking, though. Needs a bit more malt and body.

Poured a golden amber, the color of honey I guess. You can tell it is pretty well carbonated, but the head isn't big or long lasting. Lace sticks around for a while.
Aroma has an overall impression of sweet malt, and mild citrrous notes.
Mouthfeel is medium, palate is crisp, firm and slightly sweet. This beer is all malt, but there is enough of the hops to keep the drinkablility pretty high. Pretty smooth, starting with crisp sweetness, and then rising to a crescendo of prickly carbation on the tounge, then a good hop kick to finish if off.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Paid $1.09 for a 12-oz single.
Slightly cloudy golden, GREAT head: off-white and fluffy.
Interesting smell. Smells like a typical amber almost, but with sweet honey... but the honey isn't sickeningly sweet, like it can sometimes be.
Not bad... tastes a bit like chamomile tea. The honey is not overly prominent in the taste at all.
A decent brew... nothing enormous here, but sometimes it's nice to kick back and drink a plain beer.

2.8 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Faint, maybe, very faint aroma of honey, naught else. Appearnce is OK, golden with egg white head that is retained. The flavor comes through somewhat, with notes of honey, maybe a dash of wheat flavor. Passable.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Cloudy orangy hue thin whispy head off white in colour. Orangy honey aroma light malts. Dry citrusy tang. Slight ice tea quality good body and mouth feel. High marks for originality in the orangy blossom honey use. You don't see this stuff where I live.

The honey is so subtle it seems like more of an afterthought than an accent. If you really want honey, go for a Young's Waggledance.

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Golden color with a foamy beige head. Light dry toast and honey aroma, with an accent on light. Light dry honey, rose petals, and some kraft paper in flavor. Dry and unassuming. Looks thick feels thin. Citric finish. Nothing to excite or entice. Done for the night. Good luck on the 250Kth rating.
