Really solid brew, doesn’t have much honey aspect but it is a sweet and orangey impreial lager. Not sure what the ale part of its name represents.

Pour on tap, clear golden yellow pour with white head, aroma brought notes of big honey, vanilla, biscuit and bread into some corn, grass, touch of orange peel into a bit of earth. Taste was a mix of earth, yeast, honey into some vanilla, white fruit, touch of grainy notes, some orange as well, finishing sweet.

On tap at Stub & Herbs. Pours a clear yellow with a touch of gold and a white head that dissipates to the edges and laces slightly. Aroma has note of bread and cookie with a decent amount of earthy honey. Flavor is similar with sweet grains and and earthy honey underlying.

Tap at the brewpub. Slightly hazy light orange pour with a white head. Lots of honey and cracker in this one. Slight booziness adds a bit of intrigue. Pretty cool brew.

TheAlum (6193) - Aurora, Illinois, USA - MAR 10, 2015
draft on tap at the brewery (Minneapolis, MN). Pours a gentle hazed deep amber gold glow, frothy whitish head is a spotty but thicker ringer with decent retention, nice lacing. Aromas are a bit sweet, gentle honey and florals. A kiss of earth, bread and gentle carmelized honey. Mellow earth, subtle heather, florals, earth. Some graininess, earth, subtle lemon and earth, gentle floral. Initial is lighter end of medium bodied, a touch of residual honey, earth, and gentle bready and grainy malts. Subtle warmth, smooth honey and florals. A bit of thickness but quickly overcome with cool honey, dabs of lemon and earthy florals. Backend is a bit dry, bitter, subtle warmth. A bit of thickness back here covers up the ABV better with gentle sweetness, subtle fleshy apple and fruit. A bit dry and bitter, earth and floral jabs as we round the bend. Some earth, biscuit and dough. A bit strong and big and not necessarily in my wheelhouse but this works well enough. Looks nice, subtle aromas and flavors but goes down easily for a bigger beer.

emacgee (4299) - Chapel Hill, North Carolina, USA - MAY 13, 2015
Soft straw gold with two fingers of soft pillowy white head. The nose shows soft fresh baked bread with a subtle honey note and floral quality. The flavor had a sharpness to it and a rich honey note. Medium full bodied with an unpleasant bite.
