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.

Honey gives it a decent aroma but an off-flavor. Rather industrial in the malts and passable.

Bottle. Clear golden-amber pour with standard white head. Aroma is light of honey, flowers, grains. Flavor is watered down honey with flowers and a touch of yeast. Not my thing but fairly non-threatening.

You cannot hate on this beer just because of the label. I poured this with a tick and a pour in mind, and started perusing the threads. Next thing I knew this enjoyable beer was gone from my glass. Sweet and lightly malty. Totally drinkable. Truly not bad for a macro offering.

A clear amber beer. Almost no scent. Taste is honey. Way to sweet for me and very thin water feel.

Onslow (1149) - Kalamazoo, Michigan, USA - NOV 9, 2010
Pour from a 12 oz bottle. Brownish yellow brew with a thin head that quickly disaapates. Aroma of light grain and honey. Flavor is lightly sweet with grain and a light honey flavor. Not overly sweet, with a modest bit of hops bitter on the back of the tongue at the end of the swallow.

Pours a dark golden color with a thin white head. Has a strong aroma of honey. Smell is very sweet, deliciously sweet on the palate as well. Taste is a little odd, and dissappointing. It is very hard to notice the honey in the taste. I’m sure it’s what they were going for, but this beer turned out to be something slightly unusual. I love the sweetness of it, and it smells delicious. Not a fan of the taste though. 10/20

UPDATED: OCT 14, 2010 I don’t need Michelob making my Honey beer. It’s not really Honey beer either, is it?

12 oz. bottle. Gold color, tending toward amber, in a glass with the usual big megabeer head. A bit of honey in the nose, and just a slight note of alcohol. Taste is OK. Honey predominates, even suggesting a hint of mead. Some undefined bitterness in the backbone. But halfway down, a thin mouthfeel lets out some adjuncts in the form of overdone sweetness and alcohol fusels. Michelob actually has had some decent beers in various styles, but honeyed beer can be elusive to pull off.

thirdeye11 (5536) - Dallas, Texas, USA - AUG 1, 2010
(12oz bottle thanks to blutt59) clear pale yellow. Nose of honey, corn and raw grain. Taste of honey, earth, grain with a cola-like carbonation and honey finish.

Thanks to blutt59 for sharing this bottle. The beer pours a yellow color with a white head. The aroma is honey with some grain notes. The flavor is heavy on the honey but I also get some banana and grain. Medium mouthfeel and medium carbonation. Not great, but not terrible.
