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

StueyD (1071) - Heacham, Norfolk, ENGLAND - JUL 3, 2006
An amber to yellow coloured beer with a quickly dissipating, yellow white coloured head. A light aroma, initially hoppy, then a mellow maltiness. The taste is dry, bitter and hoppy.Then there is a smooth, malty flavour that carries a tiny trace of honey that is accompanied by a banana-like tropical fruit taste, through to the end. The finish is dry and hoppy. (Bottle)

harrisoni (12676) - Ashford, Kent, ENGLAND - JUN 26, 2006
Cask gravity at Red Lion, Snargate. Amber colour with thin white head. Honey aroma. Honey and hay in mouth, bit of herb. OK, just a tad of urine from somewhere. Not my favourite honey beer.

Nekronos (3603) - Xalapa, MEXICO - APR 25, 2006
NOn bitter for my taste,t he honey thing is for real, I mean, in taste, it is sweet but not annoyingly sweet, it still has its hoppy things on it, and a bubbling foam, it is very interesting.

imdownthepub (9673) - Banbury, Oxfordshire, ENGLAND - APR 24, 2006
Cask conditioned at Banbury Beer Festival 06. Golden beer with slight head. Initially particularly sweet, but that does reduce to a malty, fruitiness. A little caramel in the background, interesting rather than good.

skortila (4349) - Baarn, NETHERLANDS - APR 19, 2006
Aroma of hops and caramel malts. Clear, amber coloured with a lasting, short head. Taste is sweet, slightly bitter. Caramel malts and hops in it. Not really interesting, but drinkable.

caesar (4724) - Bunnik/Utrecht, NETHERLANDS - APR 19, 2006
Clear amber color, short head. Aroma of english hops, some tones of honey, caramel malt. Regular bitter taste, some sweetness. Quite decent beer.

hughie (3996) - Bedford, Bedfordshire, ENGLAND - APR 7, 2006
UPDATED: MAR 18, 2007 Bottle: amber with a small, fast disappearing head. Sweet malty aroma. No specific honey flavour in my opinion, but a sweet taste with a bit of citric fruit and less bitterness. Not great. 18.3.07: Cask at Wellington Arms,Bedford. Sweet aroma. Honey taste is quite distinctive in the cask version, contrasting nicely with the sourness. Rating: 6,3,6,4,14,3.3

DJMonarch (9158) - Northwich, Cheshire, ENGLAND - FEB 23, 2006
Cask Stillage at the Memorial Hall, Northwich 20/09/2003 Golden coloured and slightly sweet on the palate. Some dryness in a lasting malt finish.

JohnBarleycorn (537) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - FEB 16, 2006
Appearance is an arresting, murky scarlet-brown. Neither the aroma nor flavour are that pronounced, but there are muted showings of caramel, vanilla, lavender soap and malt lurking in there somewhere. Overall a little watery and noncommittal. An average honey beer; obviously the product of over-worked bees.

Bottled. This is dreadful stuff. Stale, fizzy, pasteurised awfulness. Get your nose in there and smell that dead rat floating on top of this junk. I’m really regretting opening this beer. And to think that last night I was drinking real live beer in a pub, and now here I am reducing to drinking this dead apology for a beer. My god this is bad. I wasted good money on this toxic slime. I can’t drink any more. Nil points.
