3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
500ml bottle pours a pale amber color with a finger and a half of white head that leaves some really nice lacing on the glass. Aroma is grassy with hints of caramel and honey. Taste is quite malty sweet with a subdued grassy and light citrus bitterness. A nicely done brew for the style, only complaint is that it is a little on the sweet side.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
500ml bottle: best before 16 Nov 2012, poured into an Abbot Ale glass tankard at home on 25 Oct 2012.
Light amber body when held up to the light source, dull amber in the shade: with an impressive head of off-white foaming bubbles no matter where the glass is sat.
Definate honey presence in the nose and taste: semi-sweet malty molasses can also be found in the aroma and flavours: the hops don’t hide though, they come to the fore towards the end of each gulp with their bitterness and dryness. They also add a fruity, spicey aspect to the smell.
The balance between the honey sweetness and the hops bitterness is nicely done and although I’m not normally a ’honey beer’ fan this was fine. A good blend and I’d love to have a cask conditioned one.

3.4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Cask, handpump @ The Bridge Inn, Topsham, Devon.
Full pint, dimple glass. Deep orange amber, just a touch short of bright, with a thin island of white atop. Big aroma of lemon peel and pear drops, eucalypt and camphor, yeast and caramel and an envelope of palest, piney honey. Smooth, soft and light in the mouth. Pear drops and lemon, eucalypt and honey like the nose. Sweet front dries out towards the back where it gets floral, piney and softly bitter. Fresh, softly fruity swallow that drops off shy and short. A little toasted malt backbone, the honey sits nicely, good balance of flavour. Great one if I had a head cold, but on its own it is a good, solid and refreshing ale. Perfect Summer drinking.
