I didn’t really notice the honey. This beer just seemed very bland, slightly sweet, and very musty. Earthy, but not in a good way. Medium bodied. Not much more to say because it’s such an unremarkable beer.

Pretty average blond, even with the addition of the honey. The sweetness certainly pops up everywhere. But, it begs the question, why do it? Not much else to say.

Lobotomy (5) - New Jersey, USA - MAY 24, 2012 does not count
12oz. Bottle into pint glass. Aroma was... plastic-y? I don?t know how to describe it. It wasn?t offensive, just... odd. Appearance was golden yellow, which was expected. Taste is one dimensional, bitter taste that lingers on the back of the tongue. I remember this being a better beer last time I had it. Overall, it isn?t that great, but I have had much worse

reggiedunlop (3669) - The dub c, Pennsylvania, USA - APR 29, 2012
Pours a clear golden with a medium white head. Aroma has a straw/barf nastiness. Flavor is earthy with a touch of bitter spicy/grassiness...lots of straw and mild breadiness. Mouthfeel is light/medium with a earthy/barfy slightly bitter finish. Sucks.

Bottle. This is pretty much what you’d expect all the way around. Light and clear golden straw color, sticky white head. Oozes with a sticky sweetness, the honey most evident. Finishes with an odd mellow funkiness. My burly buddies would call this a ’chick beer’. (#4570, 4/22//2012)

Tap. Pours clear gold with thin, fizzy white head; short retention and spare lacing. Aroma is rotten citrus, straw, wet grain, and grassy hops. Flavor is grainy malt with faint hops; dry finish. Light body, medium carbonation, and low warmth.

On tap at waterfront ale house with Joey. Simple ale.. More interesting than your run of the mill lager. Some honey and crisp.
