This is teh first Beer Ive rated so Im a novice, ok! I liken its body in the mouth to Fosterís, 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.

McWorta (1136) - LUXEMBOURG - NOV 6, 2015
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.

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.

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. Itís like a standard aussie macrolager with a tiny touch of honey.

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. Iíve got to be honest I liked this beer the first time I tried it. Not that Iíve been drinking a variety of craft and mainstream beers I find this disappointing. Itís almost like someone has just stirred some honey through a domestic lager. Theyíve marketed this really well though, kudos to Matilda Bay for that!

Iím with RafeAU below. Thereís 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.

RafeAU (558) - Los Angeles, California, USA - JUL 26, 2014
Boring typical Australian pale lager with the supposed honey wheat contributing nothing detectable to this beer. Typical aussie quaffing beer.

Bottle. Pours a gold colour with a thick white head, the aroma has some honey and malt, the taste is light and sweet with the honey coming through, with a dry finish.
