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.

ANZUShophunter (274) - Brisbane, AUSTRALIA - JAN 27, 2016
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. Iíve 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.

MRMedellin (273) - Bogota, COLOMBIA - DEC 8, 2015
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.

McWorta (1464) - 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.

TedE (932) - Sydney, AUSTRALIA - JAN 22, 2015
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!

Bottle. Golden, hazy, rocky head, white foam, medium sweetness, medium bitterness, light body, thin feel, soft carbonation, & abrupt finish.

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.
