5 oz. taster @ R.I. Brewfest 2 Feb 2013. Nose is pale malt and tons of honey. Has a flower nuances. Taste is simple, yet good. Biscuit malts covered in honey. No hops anywhere in this brew. I think some type of hop to dry and cut the bitterness is much needed. You’ll love this is you like a honey drenched APA. With a little tweaking this could be very good.

Draft. Clear and very pale yellow color, thick white head. Aroma of straw and dilute honey. Taste is dilute and lager like.

More honey colored than flavored, crisp almost spicy on the tongue, fairly mild aroma

Not sure how I really feel about this beer. It was easy to drink but being a session beer it was way to sweet to be able to drink more than one. The hop profile was almost non existent and the honey was very overwhelming. Mouthfeel was also a little sticky. Not a bad beer but a little unbalanced.

From tap at South Street Diner. Pours cloudy yellow with a small white head. Aroma is light grassy, honey and light cornish. Smooth fruity, light bitterness and mild grassy. Smooth honey and light fruity finish.

A: The beer pours a clear golden color with a finger of white head. S: Sweet malt all throughout. There actually is a mild honey flavor with some floral hops. Maybe a bit of corn? Quite simple with a mild bread aroma. T: As with the aroma, this is a very simple beer. Some pale malt flavors as well as a bit of actual honey flavor and sweetness. Some toffee and a few light floral hop notes. M: Light in body with a medium carbonation. O: Nothing about this beer really made me want to keep drinking it. I was find just sharing this pint with my friend.

Tap. A nice summer beer. It was a clear golden color with a medium head. The flavor was slightly fruity and crisp. Very light and refreshing.

On draft. Poured a golden color with plenty of carbonation bubbles rising. Aromas of grain and honey, some corn. Flavors followed, sweet residual corn almost type flavors, honey dried up but leaving a faint presence, faint floral. Not dry for a light brew, kinda residual light light stickiness and mild sweetness, would have been nicer with more dryness through the carbonation and a touch of hops. Meh.

Pours clear gold into a shaker. Bright white head with little retention. Sweet honey and dust aromas. Soft with biscuit and sweet honey upfront. Minimal hops in the dry finish.
