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.

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.

Cantabrian (883) - Christchurch, NEW ZEALAND - NOV 16, 2014
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 (199) - 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 (1934) - 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 (506) - 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.

jonnyguns (1078) - AUSTRALIA - JUN 17, 2014
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
