For centuries, brewmasters have used honey as an ingredient in beer to enhance a brewís 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.

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, Iíve always enjoyed beers with honey and this is a decent one. Itís crisp, clean, and easy to drink. If anything, a little too sweet. Canít drink more than two of these without getting a little cloying. Very light body. Overall, a pretty decent honey lager.

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.

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. Iím sure itís 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 donít need Michelob making my Honey beer. Itís 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.

(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.
