i dunno, a pretty dump style, this just tasted like a pretty dull ale with a little honey in it, like the attitude is that they can put less effort into the beer proper because the honey will cover up flaws

light golden in color with a small white lacing around the rim. Faint aroma of floral hops and honey.Subtle flavor of honey and not much else.

I sampled this at the Springfield location. Light body, golden beer, easy to drink but lacks the honey sweetness I expected. Minor hop flavor, definitely a summer ale.

Had this as part of the sampler at the Wayne, Pa location. Nice drinkable ale. Good honey flavor to it. Besides that tasted like a beer.

Yellow color, not much head. Nice aroma of honey and hops. Tastes like a gold ale, but with honey and hoppy overtones. Finishes smooth, crisp, and sweet. Very light on the palate. A decent hot weather honey ale.

They call this one "Queen Bee Honey Ale". Medium yellow color, with not much head. Nice aroma of hops, malt, amd slight honey. Nice hints oh honey and hops. Very light on the palate, but not bad. Not a strong beer, but refreshing for what it is.

On tap at the Framingham strip mall location. Slightly hazy bright orange color, medium white head. Aroma is malty with some honey and flowers. Interesting flavor: begins sweet, and very quickly you begin to feel as if you are drinking pure honey. Then a few seconds later the flavor shifts to a solid wheaty/oat malt flavor, very tasty. One of the most drinkable beers I've ever tasted. You gotta like honey to dig this one, and some might rate this down on that criterion, but I really enjoyed this; perfect for spring.
