(500ml) In a fucken tulip. A genuine honey nose. Deep orange colour with a head that departs after a second . The palate suggests honey covered caramel malts ,spicy hops in there ,dry finish.

Towey1989 (615) - Stoke On Trent, Staffordshire, ENGLAND - JUN 26, 2015
Cask at The Old Ale House, Truro. A clear amber colour with a thin white head. Aroma of caramel, honey, nuts and some citrusy hops. Taste is sweet of caramel, honey, some nuts, fruity malt and a little bit of orange coming through. Light bodied and soft carbonation. A dry, slightly tart, malty finish. Not great but drinkable. A sweet, malty beer with decent honey flavours and a little citrus twang.

AshtonMcCobb (3937) - 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.

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 (8000) - 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 (2119) - 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.
