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

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.

SilkTork (5415) - Southampton, United Kingdom, Hampshire, ENGLAND - NOV 3, 2005
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. Iím 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 canít drink any more. Nil points.

Bottle. Golden colour with a small off-white head. Florel honey aroma and a sweet light harsh honey taste. Medium body and a light dry finish.

pivnizub (9444) - Bochum, PorķřŪ, GERMANY - AUG 25, 2005
On draught at Skinners Ale House, Newquay: Amber coloured, hazy, lacing foam; floral hoppiness in the nose; bitter-sweet (honey?) flavour, long lasting bitter-aromatic aftertaste. Well balanced, well quaffable !

TC2642 (265) - Worcester, Worcestershire, ENGLAND - AUG 23, 2005
Cask, Worcester beer festival. Golden straw/amber colour. A beer with a moderate bitterness and some honey flavour. Quite smooth but I do think there are better honey beers out there.

oh6gdx (22983) - Vasa, FINLAND - APR 12, 2005
Bottled. Pale brown colour, a bit hazy. Huge beige frothy head. Honey, hops and malt in the aroma. Also some citric hints. Sweet citric flavour with honey peak in finish. A bit bitter aftertaste. Very refreshing beer.

Oakes (13600) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - AUG 17, 2004
Copper colour with a rich, frothy head. Honey, sweet pale malts and leafy hops and berryish esters in the appetizing aroma. Leafy flavours, with sweet honey underpinning. Refreshing.

Dalle (1145) - SkÝrping, DENMARK - AUG 15, 2004
Bottle. Amber with small head. Hoppy, nutty, caramel with a lovely honey edge. Perhaps a little thin. Very nice.

Ungstrup (30812) - Citizen of the universe, DENMARK - JUN 9, 2004
An amber beer with a beutiful beige head. The aroma is sweet with notes of sugarcanes and a great hops. The flavor is smooth and lovely malty with great hops - though I canít tell the type. The honey notes are also accentuated and very pleasant without being too sweet - and giving way for a good dry finish.
