2.1 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 5/20
This is teh first Beer Ive rated so Im a novice, ok!
I liken its body in the mouth to Foster’s, but not as sweet, and with a definite honey hint.., Hmm, its not really a hint if its definite is it?
The honey malt grabs me as I sip, but disappears only to return a minute after Ive sipped.

2.2 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
From bottle in shaker. Pours clear and golden with a nice one finger head. Only faint sweetbread aroma with a hint of honey in the finish. I’ve had this "off the wood" at the Breakfast Creek and the honey is a bit more noticable out of the barrel. The honey character becomes more noticable as it warms.

2.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 8/20
Clear golden beer, thin but lasting white head. The first impression at nose comes from the malt notes such as grains and grass, when is tasted, the flavor by itself is extremely sweet, which make the hops just fade away, and appear barely at the aftertaste. This is not a beer for IPA lovers.

Light opalescent amber colour with a fine poring head. Aromas of fruit and light caramel floral wheat notes develop. Softly carbonated with a soft texture and a medium body. Fruity sweet all the way through. Medium lasting finish.

2.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 7/20
345ml bottle. 02 May 15. Pours a pale gold colour with a decent, creamy, white head which lasted well and left some very nice lace rings. Initially pleasant honey note is matched by an equally unpleasant vegetal one. At times the smell reminds me of a shandy. Light to medium sweetness and some mild unappealing sourness which lingers. Light bodied and with a dry finish. This beer was passable until I put it in my mouth and then that lingering sour taste ruins everything. Please make it stop. Unenjoyable. 4.

1.6 AROMA 2/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 2/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
345ml bottle into glass. Skunky nose with honey background. Amber beer with small white head. Taste of minerals, vegetables. Aftertaste is cooked vegetables with honey. Lingering, not good. It’s like a standard aussie macrolager with a tiny touch of honey.

2.1 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
Honey aroma but not much else. Pours clear golden amber with a white head that fades. Feels thin in the mouth with fairly soft carbonation. Taste is medium sweet with a strange aftertaste. I’ve got to be honest I liked this beer the first time I tried it. Not that I’ve been drinking a variety of craft and mainstream beers I find this disappointing. It’s almost like someone has just stirred some honey through a domestic lager. They’ve marketed this really well though, kudos to Matilda Bay for that!

1.2 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 1/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 4/20
I’m with RafeAU below. There’s hardly anything on this cheap lager that would single it out from the wide row of cheap Aussie lagers. Very misleading marketing and positioning of product.
