2.1 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 7/20
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

2.6 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
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.

0.5 AROMA 1/10 APPEARANCE 1/5 TASTE 1/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 1/20
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.

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 !

2.6 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
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.
