Bif (1295) - 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.

ComradeK (922) - 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 (179) - 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 (1108) - 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.

dstu4876 (5) - Sydney, AUSTRALIA - JAN 23, 2014 does not count
Bottle from store. Woeful attempt at spicing up a premium lager. The boasted honey flavours are non existent, lost to an unidentifiable sweet additive that tastes as far from honey as you can get. Rather your tastebuds and nostrils are met with an offensive metallic taste and smell that leaves a bad aftertaste and a desire to rinse your mouth in ethanol to dull the flavour Shocking beer

Lonick (781) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - DEC 2, 2013
Almost a nothing of a beer, some slight sweetness, some slight taste of something but not much, almost a waste of water.

McNeillR (976) - SCOTLAND - NOV 29, 2013
Pissy pale and pissy smelling, light grass. Steely inoffensive nose but there’s nothing there. Taste is similarly steely but not exactly horrendous. Stops short of really ruining itself.

Bottle, thanks someone from Australia, November Tasting.

Jado (437) - Camp Hill, AUSTRALIA - SEP 14, 2013
From 330 ml bottle. Pours a clear gold with a thin white head that pretty much disappears. Weirdly it smells like a pilsner - noble hops, grain, wet hay. Taste is pretty typical pils as well, with grain, lemon zest, and maybe hint of lemon at the end. There’s also a jarring metallic note. Couldn’t detect any wheat beer characters at all. Thin mouth feel. Not good and maybe a bit misleading as well.

gnoff (7445) - Mölndal, SWEDEN - AUG 19, 2013
Draught as part of a tasting paddle at The Australian Hotel on July 12, 2013.
Clear yellow color, white head. Malty, sweet, thin taste. Thin mouthfeel, very low bitterness. Light sweet, also dry wall scent.
