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.

Bottle. Pours a pale body with a white head. Light honey, grain, corny vegetative notes and a thin light body. Not so good.

12 oz bottle into a pint glass Very sweet and tastes generic like the other Michelob craft selections. Just never really blown away by the stuff they make.

Sadly I kinda like this brew. Aroma is nothing fancy slight hint of sugar and malt. Flavor is what you would expect from a main stream commercial brewery’s attempt at a craft brew, carbonation, a little hops and malt and with this one a surgery honey tone. Overall I like this brew though, its not bad for hot afternoon.

On a Honey Beer kick so while in the US I picked up a 6 pack of this. Certainly needs to be chilled to drink in the Hot Texas weather. Its a standard American Commercial Lager, but for what it is worth they have done a reasonable job blending in the Honey flavour. Didn’t have any problem drinking the 6 pack with a friend. Has a fair degree of sweetness but I guess that is what you want in a honey beer, could use more malt and hop for me. But still a good drinkable commercial US beer if there is such a thing.

MeisterBrew (138) - Cheyenne, Wyoming, USA - JUN 28, 2009
Bottle. Pours a clear golden color with little head. Aroma of honey, corn, and grain. Flavor isn’t anything special; tastes like Michelob with a ton of sugar added. Not a good beer... at all.

Beardface (1517) - Eugene, Oregon, USA - JUN 19, 2009
Thin and watery with just the slightest hint of honey, maybe a touch better than your average lager, but not by much.

Hank1980 (942) - Athens, Georgia, USA - JUN 15, 2009
Bottle. Poured gold, little head. Aroma of honey and grain. Taste is similar with some toasted malt coming through as well. Finishes a sweet taste. Body is relatively light. Overall, a decent brew.
