Konigshonig is a fictional German word meaning "King’s Honey". This classic American Pilsner is spiked with 60 lbs. of local Naperville wildflower honey from Smith-Talbot Apiaries. There are delicate aromas of sugar, perfume, and clover wafting forth from this smooth Pale Lager.

Yow! Found these notes from the Solemn Oates tasting in what, March? Okay. Here’s a classic American Pils with honey. I just had a Rauchbier before this one, so that may affect my perception. Still, the honey was not too big in the nose when sipped from a tiny taster in my sweaty hands.. Golden, not a pale pils color. Ring of beer fizz. Taste is in the nearly exclusive domain of the Classic American Pilsener, not a lot of honey from my point of view. Tastes fine, though, with only the menu board to tell it has more alcohol than normal.

Draft on tap at the brewpub (Lombard, IL). Pours a rich well hazed darker golden pour, dulled hard almost into amber. Rich haze and a frothy firm offwhie head dies to a thicker ring and laces ok. Aromas are crisp clean maltiness, gentle grass, and a faint yeasty spice mix. Some bread, biscuit touch in a bit. More cereal with some grass, gentle dryness. A touch of lemon and mandarin orange. Initial is mellow, almost medium bodied, a bit lighter with firm fuzzy carbonation, dry earthy hops and a bunch of oranges. Touches of bready malts, pale and inviting with touches of grass, dry citrusy mellow hops, mandarin oranges and touches of peach. Middle is a bit sweeter and quite American with crisp malts trying their best to combat a rich citrusy yet sweet American hop essence. Mellow touches of grass and florals. Backend shows a touch of sweetness, yet still citrusy and hoppy, with lingering touches of citrus acidity. Mellow grass, bitterness, citrus. A touch of sweetness lingers. An odd beer, a bit more of an American interpretation minus that yeast, dry earthy hopping, and spice. Different, solid.

On tap at Yorktown, and Mug Club served with a clear, orange/gold hue, good persistence to the white head foam, and wavey cling to the lacing. The aroma was light yeast, light grain, grassy & floral hints, and subtle honey sweetness. The flavor added a favorable but low hop bitterness, moderate maltiness, and no distinguishable sweetness as in the aroma. With good carbonation and light to medium body, the finish was presentably crisp and dry. Nicely complementary with dinner and beyond.
