Pretty standard golden ale the touch of honey works well enough had it with a curry and it was a decent accomplimant.

Smells like hot wet hair, gold honey colour with no head. Tastes like rich tea biscuits quite thin and watery rank really

Melkart (431) - Porto Alegre, BRAZIL - JAN 24, 2014
Honey and nuts aroma. Light body. Sweet taste, but it could show more honey. Good, but nothing that special.

allmyvinyl (9562) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - DEC 7, 2013
500ml bottle at home. Pours clear dark yellow, little to no head. Aroma has that dirty sweetness honey has, plus a floral note. Quite thin, but an easy enough beer to quaff.

Bottle. Dark honey (apt!) with a very light haze - thick white head. There’s a lovely whiff of honey in the nose mixed in with citrus fruits and a light peach. In the mouth and it’s like someone has drizzled honey over a fruit cocktail and soaked it in bitter. Surprisingly yummy with a nice amount of carbonation to keep the flavour fizzing through the long palate.

Copper coloured ale with an amber glow. Doesn’t hold its head. Sweet tasting with notes of honey in its aroma. Has a slight biscuit malt flavour.
