Bif (1418) - St. Louis, Missouri, USA - NOV 15, 2012
Bottle- Pours a golden color with a good head that fades slowly to some lacing. Aroma of citrus, honey and some grain in the background. Light taste of honey, trace of fruit and some grain. Mild bitterness and a slightly sticky finish. Light body, smooth but the honey sweetness gets to you by the end of the beer. Drinkable but for only one.

RafeAU (68) - Kingston, AUSTRALIA - JUL 26, 2014
Boring typical Australian pale lager with the supposed honey wheat contributing nothing detectable to this beer. Typical aussie quaffing beer.

joe19612 (1839) - camberley, Surrey, ENGLAND - JUL 26, 2014
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.

Danev76 (478) - AUSTRALIA - JUL 14, 2014
Nice honey malt aroma. Medium clear golden colour with excellent head. Nice honey flavor up front that continues into the aftertaste. Light body with high carbonation.

From a bottle. Vague aroma of honey, pretty smooth, mild flavours, a touch sweet, not as bad as expected.

Bottle. Loads of honey and toasty malts. Taste is pretty unbalanced. Predominantly honey based. Mass produced macro beer nothing to rave about. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Out of a bottle (345ml). Aroma: oats, honey. Taste: Oats, honey and banana aftertaste. Smoothest beer I’ve had. New favourite.

ComradeK (1010) - The Vale of Dundas, AUSTRALIA - MAR 7, 2014
345ml bottle. Pours a clear deep gold, with a small white head, which does not last well, but does leave a little lacing. Mild herbal notes, white bread and very faint honey make up the aroma. Lager-ish bland citrus hops up front fade into a watery body, with mild honey and strong soap flavours. Cardboard malt comes into the finish and lingers as a less than pleasant aftertaste. This is a very underwhelming beer; surprisingly lager-like, with only minimal honey flavour and no discernible wheat influence.

mattyhennessy (289) - Highton, AUSTRALIA - MAR 3, 2014
Pours a hazy golden colour. White head typical of macro lagers. Honey aroma that is advertised is barely present. Lager flavour is dominant. Honestly, an attempt at making a mass lager into a craft beer, that fails.Not much complexity or anything notable to comment on. Very light body, metallic with faint notes of floral and honey

Muggus69 (1175) - Yarram, Vic, AUSTRALIA - FEB 5, 2014
345ml bottle BB 17may14 Hazy orange gold beer, small white head. Mild aroma; floral honey, grainy malts, bit of twang to it. Fizzy somewhat prickly carbonation, light body, drops away quickly on the palate. Doesn’t really deliver on the palate; faint note of honey amongst a dry husky grain malt backbone. Finishes abruptly with a mineral twang and odd sort of bitterness. Essentially a macro lager being disguised as a craft beer by adding honey.
