COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
For centuries, brewmasters have used honey as an ingredient in beer to enhance a brew’s naturally sweet, creamy flavor. Our Honey Lager is brewed in this tradition, using all natural honey and the finest barley malts for rich, smooth taste and a deep golden color.

Pretty boring stuff here. Pale yellow pour, soapy white head...you know the drill. Some sweet "honey" notes in the aroma but that’s about all the honey you’re gonna get out of this. Overall, pretty unremarkable.

I remember liking this beer before i was into crafts. Aroma is pretty sweet, thanks to the honey. Taste is slightly off. Grains an something slightly dank. Meh, i used to like it a lot more.

Funky lingering aftertaste. Slightly sweet lager. Beer aroma without much else going on. No thanks. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Original review: 2/10/10. Poured into a pint glass. Pours a crystal clear dark gold with a thin white head on top. Leaves some spotty lacing. Smells like honey, syrup, and some grains. The mouth is crisp and easily drinkable. Carbonation level is decent. Wow. This is a really sweet beer! Tons of honey-sweetnes, puckering candy sweet. Not much for beer-flavor in this one. No hops, no grains, nothing. Not my thing.

12 oz bottle pours amber with a white head. Aroma is sweet and grainy. Taste is of malt and a sweet finish.

troopie (2292) - Munchen an der Willamette, Oregon, USA - JAN 11, 2012
Pours honey gold with thin fast dissipating head. Faint honey aroma. Light bodied, flavour is honey with a bit of a tang. Light hop finish. Not bad, but nothing to rave about.

Bottle. Pours a clear orange gold with a small off white head. The aroma is honey and wheat. Medium mouthfeel with a honey malt. Not much going on with this one.

Tasted from bottle into standard pint glass. Pours a clear golden color with medium off-white foam. Aroma is like any basic light lager plus a slight honey essence. Taste is the same. My father-in-law introduced me to this beer, so it always reminds me of him. It was one of his favorites before he discovered better craft brews. It’s too sweet for me nowadays, but drinkable and nostalgic nonetheless.

If you like sweet beers that are somewhat affordable then this is def a beer you should try but I think it may give someone stomach achedue to the sweetness

Golden color. Honey is pronounced in both the aroma and taste. Nothing complex, just tastes like a lager with honey. Pretty much what I expected from this. That being said, I’ve always enjoyed beers with honey and this is a decent one. It’s crisp, clean, and easy to drink. If anything, a little too sweet. Can’t drink more than two of these without getting a little cloying. Very light body. Overall, a pretty decent honey lager.
