1.3 AROMA 2/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 1/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 6/20
Can, 500 ml
Appearance: Pours oily and hazy golden body with a carbonation like of a fizzy drink, initially very lively but quickly becoming flat with only some bubbles left on the sides of the glass, Head is gently off - white, foamy, rocky, initially huge but quickly decreasing to small, leaving lacing, very dynamic and unstable. The most beautiful aspect is its healthy golden body colour.
Aroma: Very strange aroma of flowers or leaves, being harsh and quite agressive, some dullness and bond alcohol top, some heavy honey oriented sweetness with a harsh and artificial character. Some crystalized honey, orange peal, gives the impression of dishwashing liquid of an orange peal aroma or an orange jelly with a hint of honey. Petrol impressions becoming present when its get warmer.
Taste: A lot of artificial sweetener spoiling not perfectly brewed Polish Strong Lager. Notes of honey are quickly dominated by alcohol and some rusty - bloody wetness of drainpour, rain water, some sourness and flat nasty dullness of the artificial origin in the aftertaste. Finish duration is short to medium.
Palate: Body is medium, texture is sticky and unpleasant, carbonation on palate is flat, finish feel is highly alcoholic, smelly, unfresh.

Bottled (thanks Kim N!). Golden colour, small white head. Aroma is mild sweet malts, grains, quite rich on honey and alcohol. Flavour is honey, alcohol, some sweet malty and grainy notes along with low bitterness. The high abv + the honey makes this a bit icky sweet, otherwise quite nicely balanced.

Sour taste.. Too much alcohol in taste, honey-sour palate, not too good. No foam. Amber colour, uninteresting. Better to avoid.

The best beer or the best mixed drink that was sweetened with honey, what have drunk so far. Well yes, but a honey beer is not my favorite beer!
