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

2.9 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
12 oz bottle. Faintly spicy nose, faint wheat. Pours yellowish orange with little head, decent lacing. Taste is salty, somewhat medicinal--not at all like a hefeweizen, although I taste a hint of wheat in the aftertaste. Carbonation is high. Kind of weird and boring at the same time, if that makes any sense.

1.9 AROMA 2/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 7/20
Bottle. Poured very hazy yellow with thin lasting white head. Aroma of cloves and warm rubber. Thin flat wheaty flavour, with a couple spicy notes. Flat finish. Somewhat under commonplace.

2.2 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
Pours a hazy light amber with a slight white head that quickly diminishes to a ring of foam. Not a lot in the aroma: a bit of yeast, a very little fruit. Medium body with somewhat fizzy carbonation. The taste is lightly bread/citrus sweet. Just a touch of spice on the relatively quick, dry finish. Definitely from the American branch of the hefeweizen tree. Not much going on in this beer in the way of charactery, but it’s probably a good candidate for serving very cold with a wedge of lemon on a very hot day.

2.7 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 12/20
Ewww! Bottle from Fred Meyer in Portland, OR--Poured a dull hazy golden-amber body with a dying white head. Sticky artificial honey nose with dumb wheatiness and drab grains. No phenolic attitude of a Bavarian hefe and less hop bite than say Widmer or Pyramid. A waste of wheat, basically.
