2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
11th November 2013
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.

3.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
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.

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.

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

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle:   Bright yellow but still hazy, small frothy white head, little lacing.   Dull yet strong honey on the nose.   Otherwise a bit of sweet grass/straw/hay.   Very similar on the tongue, smooth, a bit heavier than others.   Not as crisp as most, but guessing with the Honey it wouldn’t be that way.   Body and mouthfeel are moderate to full.   Soft sweet bready finish, with dull honey notes.   Tiz okay, could stand to be more grass like instead of bready.

Flavor is lightly to moderately sweet, lightly acidic, lightly bitter.
Finish is lightly sweet, lightly acidic, lightly to moderately bitter, unclean.
Light to medium body, watery texture, fizzy carbonation, lightly alcoholic.

22, painted all weird. Pours a crystal clear pale gold with a big frothy white head. Grass and hay on the nose, a little funky but not in a barnyard way. Watery thin body, very little carb presence. Light honey on the mid palate. Honey and wheat finish.

Nose is honey and soft grain kolsch yeast. Chill hazed golden thin head. Flavors of honey and grain. Soft sulfur. Kolschy with honey. Kind of bores me.

4.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottle. Bright and golden, quite active. Sweet, blooming aroma. Drinks with a definite honey essence ... very well built into a brilliant kolsch base. I’m not usually a fan of honey-based brews, but I do love the kolsch style, and this is a damn good, sunny, bright beer. I want gallons this the next hot day I have to work in my yard.
