2.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
UPDATED: NOV 30, 2009 Bottle courtesy of Fratto. Heavy orange color, consistent with the color of rich honey. Strong honey smell can be picked up before the glass even comes near your nose. This has the level of honey on the nose that one would expect from a mead or bragget. Also has a fair sense of dry apple. Tastes of honey and dry grains. Wheaty only in the aftertaste. Fairly straight forward in the sense of being a honey beer, but for some reason I just can’t get into it.

Clear dark golden color. Aroma is of sweeter malts, light honey, and a little citrus in the undertones. Taste is of sweeter malts, caramel, honey, and spices. Not too bad for an AB product.

Golden in color. Head almost non-existent after a minute. All I taste is honey and a little bit of bread. Unless you enjoy honey beers, I would stay away from this one. Overall, I didn’t find it very enjoyable.

2.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 2/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 7/20
Pale straw-gold with a medium, short-lived white head. Aroma is instantly of honey, wheat, grape juice, vanilla, and peppery spice. Very nice, but on the first sip, none of these flavors are apparent and your’e left with an empty over-carbonated beverage with a light, oily palate. Some flavor begins to present itself in the finish- pepper, oranges, limeade, and undeniable sweet sticky honey linger for a short while. Not as thin as I expected, but definitely lacking in flavor and character.

Nice attempt from a beer company I do not like. They are however striving for a better beer and I can totally respect that.

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle at Springslickers fish fry. Pours a translucent gold with an off white head. Aroma of honey, lemon, and cereal grains. Light bodied with some fizziness. Flavor is simple and to the point- pale wheat malts with a kiss of honey with above average sweetness. Clean finish. For a mass produced beer, it’s not as bad as I was expecting.
