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.

Not bad for a macro. Aroma is mild and a bit nutty. Taste is of honey and nuts. Amber pour with a very small white head.

Bottle, can. Dark yellow/orange pour, thin head. Grain and honey on the nose, maybe a little caramel sneaking in on flavor.

Rustyham (1724) - St. Petersburg, Florida, USA - DEC 28, 2009
A lot better than I expected, this lager is a thick dark honey color, like the Yuengling Traditional Lager. Aroma is a slight scent of honey while flavor hosts more honey. Malts are thin, but noticeable- like a light oktoberfest- tastee fresher than most macro products, but that may be the honey masking it. Would not hesistate to drink another.

It’s a little to sweet for my taste. Could use some more bitterness. Pours a golden color.

sebletitje (6680) - Enghien, BELGIUM - OCT 10, 2009
pours orange, thin white head. Aroma is light, honey. Flavor, honey comes out a lot, hints of caramel malts and sweetness. After a few sips, the honey aspect becomes just too one dimensional, leaving the beer to be dull and boring. The honey is reminiscent of medicinal aftertaste.

At first taste seems very biter but the aftertaste is of sweet honey. Not impressed with aroma or appearance but the aftertaste made up for that. An okay beer overall.
