2.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Ok another Henry,s product..yes I am getting rather short of funds!
Ok right away i spot a weird thing on the label it says in big letters "hefeweizen" then underneath in much smaller "honey brewed lager"...now what a dilemma..how should i judge this beer?
Ok the beer actually looks like a dark hefeweizen actually not to bad.
smell however seems to mix the styles there is some weheat but mostly lager hopping.
The taste is pretty average..not too bad..sweet on the front then gets a smallish bitterness at the back of the tongue..more lager like..the sweetness does seem to be honeyish.
Pretty drinkable but Im still confused as to what this beer wants to be..if it Stated Honey Lager..i would say it was pretty darn good for the style ( miles better than Michelobs version for example)..but as a hefe..its weak

wasn't expecting much, and didn't get much. Though the brew looked fogy and enticing, there was a serious lack of flavor. It has that carbonated water flavor that is remenescent of beast and budweiser. Nothing special here.

An entire lemon-tree couldn't save this one. Just another Henry's.... not even as good as Widmer's Hefe.

2.3 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
Pours a thin fluffy head, extremely carbonated. Aroma is light. It seems like it is trying to hard to "look" like a Hefeweizen because it is really really cloudy. Flavor is light with a hint of lemon. Overall, pretty bland but easy to drink. Good for camping trips or a BBQ.

2.4 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
A golden color with a white head and lots of carbonation. The aroma is mildly of wheat. The flavor has some lemon character and full of wheats. A slightly refreshing beer with an unpleasant domestic beer flavor.

2.1 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
Not much of an aroma to speak of. Pours golden yellow, cloudy, head thin. Flavour is bland. Lacks fruitiness and acids. Overall weak but unoffensive.

2.6 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 11/20
Slightly cloudy darker orange-yellow with a lasting light white head. Very light aroma. Sweet scent but hard to catch. Very light flavour. Very slight honey and yeast flavours. A lite dustiness in the palate which is too light. Not much in the way of hops, spice or character.
