Hazy gold beer with a good white head. Palate is smooth and dry. Mild fine carbonation. Light smooth malt, touch of cream. Very light honey and a whisper of somewhat insipid citrus. Light dry finish. Okay.

bhensonb (13982) - Woodland, California, USA - SEP 5, 2013
Capped 750 from Monument in Concord, CA. Pours translucent gold with a foamy white head. Aroma suggests some sort of dilute aftershave. Fruit? Med body or nearly. Flavor starts sort of sweet, but then a lot of grassy hop stops that. Followed by some breadiness. Seem to be getting honey on my lips. Quite surprisingly drinkable. Honey from hops. What fortunate bees.

Bottle sample at my 5555th rating tasting at Sar HaMashkaot Ramat Gan. Thanks beerandbeyond. Clear golden. Aroma of graininess, honey and fruitiness. Sweet flavor with graininess, honey and fruitiness. Medium-bodied.

REally wanted to like this one especially at the price tag. Really like this style but this one is dry and buttery.

shrubber85 (10528) - Greenville, Indiana, USA - SEP 8, 2014
Bottle. Honey and barley malt aroma. Hazy golden yellow with small head. Lightly sweet barley malt and straw flavor. Okay - kind of bland.

slowrunner77 (9940) - Reno, Nevada, USA - OCT 22, 2014
solidly in the "very good for the style" category. light and crisp with well done light honey in the nose and flavor, but other than that it would not be very interesting.

DocLock (9866) - Lower Pottsgrove, Pennsylvania, USA - JUL 29, 2013
Great bright yellow 750 ceramic bottle from Capone’s. Pours chill hazy deep gold with 1-finger off-white head. Nose is hopcitrus, tart lemongrassy, mild honey. Tastes of lemongrassy hops, citrus, mild honey. Medium in complexity and palate heft. OK, not great.

DrSilverworm (9671) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - JUL 4, 2015
Sample during Jungle Jim’s International Beerfest. End of the bottle. Hazy yellow color. Thin bubble white head. Decent ridge of lace. Bread, honey, crackers. Bigger floral character. Moderate-plus sweet taste. Light bitter. Light dry finish. Lighter to medium body. Lighter carbonation. Mild slick, then kinda dry in the finish. Reasonably smooth. An alright kolsch. Smooth, nice flavor. Very mild bite in the finish, though. Hint of stomach acid to it.

DuffMan (9498) - the land of bitumen, beef & beer, Alberta, CANADA - AUG 23, 2015
Bottle, shared with Rockley. Medium gold, lasting thick white head. Clean grains with lovely fruity and floral accents, presumably the honey. Clean and very drinkable, not at all too sweet as I had feared. I’m not sure how true to style this is, but it was an excellent lighter beer.
