This was the beer we had in mind when we decided to brew Chinese craft beers. Honey Ma Gold is an easy-drinking ale enlivened by floral, mouth-tingling Sichuan peppercorns and organic, local honey from an apiary near the Great Wall. The Honey Ma Gold was GLB’s first brew and still our proudest creation.

I do not wax on poetically about beer but I do know the quality of a beer once tasted. This review is not about my tastes but reinforces the numbers, which are arbitrary.

It’s gold and hazy. I can’t see through it. The head is thin and white. Danky honey. The flavor is like a white IPa, spicy, sweet, bitter and having that peppery wit character.
