Heligan Honey Ale is a light refreshing bitter, pale amber in colour with distinct hoppy overtones and the subtle addition of real Cornish honey.

AshtonMcCobb (3675) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - JAN 22, 2015
Bottle from the Bottle Bank. Appearance - golden amber with a nice fluffy head. Nose - soggy branflakes, but not in a bad way. Sweet creamy malt is what Iím trying to say. Taste - toffee and biscuits. Some nuts. Palate - light to medium bodied with a creamy yet crunchy texture and a nice dry biscuity finish. Overall - itís not special but itís decent. Not sure where the honey was. Hidden in amongst the caramel notes, and probably just as well as this beer as come out fresh and drinkable unlike some honey beers.

pvitt (45) - Netphen, North Rhine-Westphalia, GERMANY - DEC 20, 2014
A light body with caramel, floral, herbs, honey. A nice clear amber liquid with a tan foam. Light sweetness, lightly bitter, lightly sour, thin feel, flat, long finish. Recommendable.

Pours copper in colour with low head. Smells like Amsterdam in spring. Taste is bitter hops.

DuffMan (7624) - the land of bitumen, beef & beer, Alberta, CANADA - SEP 24, 2014
Bottle, shared with Parksy. Skinners has terrible goofy labels that are a distraction. Orange-kissed gold, average off white head that is quick to fade. Reedy malts with a touch of sweetness, finishing with low stemmy bitterness. Not awful. But is that really a compliment?

a_cross (639) - Poole, Dorset, ENGLAND - JUL 5, 2014
Golden brown, moderate white head; desperately poor label design; cereal malt aroma; taste is a short kick of honey, then a strange herbal twigginess takes over; very short finish; poor.

gegwilson (1870) - North Yorkshire, ENGLAND - JUN 1, 2014
Bottle courtesy of Chris. Amber with a white head. Quite a sweet and fruity beer. Some floral notes and honey, but not in an overpowering way. Citrus hop finish.

weaselkenievil (1608) - Cheshire, ENGLAND - APR 26, 2014
Bottle on holiday in Cornwall. Shit label, didnít feel the beer at all. Dark gold amber with a thin slightly off white head. Aroma of honey, floral hops. Flavour more sweet honey, dry finish.

Lagerboy (1508) - British Columbia, CANADA - SEP 5, 2013
500 ml bottle. Mostly clear orange copper, off-white foam fades. Mild fruity sweet malt aroma. Not too sweet malt taste, some honey flavor and lightly bitter floral citrus hops. Low carbonation and light bodied. Sours a bit towards a light bitter citrus finish. LBW (Lagerboys Be Wary)
