1.2 AROMA 2/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 2/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 2/20
UPDATED: JAN 14, 2015 Bottle: Muddled, burnt orange body with a long-lasting, thick, eggshell colored collar. Aroma is... strange, perplexing. Clover honey, apple, cinnamon potpourri, faint cheap whiskey, nebulous spice, sweet vanilla, & strange notes of beeswax. What the hell is going on here? Taste starts with some contrived, artificial honey sweetness, quickly followed by another hodge podge of favors... Lavender, wheat. sweetbread, vanilla, cereal grains, apple skins, mild graham cracker, booze, I’m not really sure what is going on here. Starts off with mild sweetness but warmth makes it nearly cloying. Hard to figure this one out. Not the worst thing AB-InBev makes, but that doesn’t mean it’s good.

Bottle. Pours cloudy dark orange with a frothy white head that leaves no lacing. Aroma is HONEY, nothing but honey. Flavor is overpowered by honey, heavy sweet taste, average carbo and a brief sweet finish. Poured out the remainder of the bottle.

Nice color and aroma. The taste is a slight drop off. Overall it's a decent bourbon beer

A nice balanced beer with a great yet mild honey aftertaste. Great on the palate with a good aroma. This was a very pleasant surprise in taste and refreshing.

2.5 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
Bottle: Poured a golden color with white head. Aroma is bourbon. Taste is a messy bourbon and sweet caramel malt. Just doesn’t work for me.

2.2 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
Fake bourbon and vanilla aroma. Not offensive, but not all that great either. Semi sweet. Still weak and over carbonated body.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Gold pour with creamy white head and lace. Aroma is vanilla and wheat. Sweet honey malt with almost no bitter. A touch of old shoes. Medium body with good carbonation. No bourbon or real bourbon. Ok I guess

Horrible, though it is accurate in that it tastes like honey and bourbon. I couldn't choke it down.

2.4 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
Poured from a 12 LOZ bottle into a pint glass.
Aroma- Has a very sweet smell with citrus trappings with grain and malt thrown in.
Appearance- This is a murky orange with transitions to more of a yellow color at the bottom of the glass. At first I thought it was the glass, but I think it’s the beer
Taste- Whoa, not for me! There is a slight bourbon flavor (tat I not good) and I didn’t find this very drinkable
Palate- I think this is a moderate bodied beer with medium carbonation and a oily feel to it.
Overall- This was not good at all in my opinion. The flavor was downright bad and the texture didn’t compliment the experience. I will not drink this again, even if it was free.
