4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 17/20
This was probably my favorite honey beer. Had a lot of honey flavor, unlike some where it is just barely a hint of it. I would recommend it if you like JD or something like that.

12oz bottle (Old Notes)-Pours a clear light amber with a small head. Aroma of sweetness and malt. Taste of the same with some honey coming through. No wheat anywhere. This light bodied brew is not too shabby.

A sweet beer with a subtle amount of honey. A decent summer sipper. Please note that many of these old ratings did not have appearance and palate scores so they are defaulted to receive 3s.

One of the gateway brews for me also. I remember liking this one; as I cannot stand wheat beers this was out of the ordinary.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Sweet and musty honey and wheat aroma. Hazy golden body with lots of bubbly carbonation and generous white head that lasts forever. Lightly sweet flavour has some doughy characteristics and citrus notes with very light bitterness. Strong carbonation to the light, refreshing body. Sampled in Dallas, 2001. Bottle. Entered from notes.

3.1 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
A favorite of mine from the past. Pete’s was a gateway brand for me. One of the few honey brews I have tried that has a honey flavor that actually worked. I remember buying a bomber of this one time and going to a friends baseball league at a local high school. They got kicked out of the league because I was drinking this in the dugout. Good times.

2.5 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
A very sweet sugar flavor, that I guess is supposed to be the honey. Light and sweet overall, not too great, tastes like an artificial blend of cane sugar and malts.

2.7 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 12/20
Some honey flavor and aroma, but this beer seemed watery and had very little complexity. Another disappointment from Pete's.
