Redoak's Honey Ale a pale ale which has been infused with a generous amount of Tasmanian Leatherwood Honey from the world heritage listed wilderness area on the west coast of Tasmania surrounded by the Nelson and Franklin rivers. It is a refreshing, light bodied pale ale with a delicate leatherwood and musk aroma and flavour, followed by a slight bitterness and dry mouth-feel.

Had tap at Redoak, this beer is pretty average lacking in flavour with a pretty uninspiring aroma. A bit disappointing.

Pours a light yellow with a white head. Aroma has floral notes and honey. Taste is also honey with some light floral hops. Nice but a little light for my taste.

On tap at the brewpub. Honey was dominant in both aroma and taste, but in taste there was a nice sweet apple and grapefruit to compliment. sweet caramel malt backs it.

Bottle. Interesting beer. Aroma has honey, and also fruit (apple). Sweet flavour, with some sourness. Oily in the palate, nice mouth feel. Cloudy yellow, the head disappears.

330ml bottle. Golden honey colour with a mountainous head of dep white foam and an aroma of musk lollies which is sweet and inviting. There is a sweetness in the taste and it is lively in the mouth with the subtle honey flavour coming through.

nate2g (1548) - 上海 / Boomtown!, AUSTRALIA - JUN 7, 2009
Draught at Redoak Brewpub, Sydney. I’m always a little skeptical when it comes to beer and honey so I left this one til last and it was just a sample. Poured yellow with a small white head. The aroma reminded me of honey on bread, with light notes of grass. The flavour is the same and perhaps not as smooth as I’d like from a beverage with honey thrown in. It’s very sweet right through to the finish and honestly a sample was more than enough for this one.

330ml bottle into tulip glass. A pale yellow beer with a healthy white head. Nose of bready malts, mild honey and lemons with a hint of sea air. Again I got a lemony taste on the palate balanced with a soft honey light malt presence. Finishes with a nice citrus light bitterness. Not nearly as sweet as you would think when the word "honey" is mentioned on the label. Light bodied with a spritzy mouthfeel. Refreshing and easily drinkable. Not bad at all.

Davros (2460) - Melbourne, AUSTRALIA - APR 5, 2009
Pours slightly hazy golden/amber (actually, it does look a bit like honey). Small head instantly fades to nothing... Enticing aroma of woody honey and grainy malt. Not so pleasant is the corn/cooked vegies, reminds of cheap adjunct lagers. Much more honey present on tasting, as well as sweet malt and a slight citrus tang, but again, cooked vegies come through. Quite lively, but watery, on the palate. Pretty good, as long as you don’t pay too much attention to it.
