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.

Ungstrup (29022) - 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.

Creamy white head. Amber color. Light toffee caramel and hop aroma. Taste lacks "bitter bitterness". Sweet honey-like flavor with light hops and sugar. Watery finish. Label is nice! (5/4/5/2/10 2.6)
Cask@Beer Hunters
Pale amber color, creamy off-white head. Aroma of hops and fermented raisins. Nutty hoppy flavor, a bit thin on the malts, hints of fruity sweetness, propably from honey. An average bitter. (6/3/6/2/11 2.8)

johndoughty (3847) - cheslyn hay, West Midlands, ENGLAND - MAR 10, 2004
Slightly hazy and rather sweet.Not dominated by the honey in it this is a pleasant and slightly different bitter.As usual with Skinners beers it has an amusing and relevant label.

sayravai (4667) - Helsinki, FINLAND - MAR 7, 2004
Slightly hazy, dark amber (dark honey?) color - big, foamy head. Hoppy, citric aroma. Malty, sweetish flavor with a honey and citrus twist. Oily, medium-bodied and pretty carbonated palate. A nice, refreshing summer beer, although one pint is surely enough.

Garrat (1254) - Suffolk, ENGLAND - JAN 19, 2004
From the bottle this was quite cloudy,even with the sweetness of honey this was sour and lifeless.

fiulijn (14294) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - NOV 8, 2003
Orange-amber color. Nice malt and hop aroma. Dry; ordinary mouthfeeling, not enough malty, just correctly hopped; a light honey touch, with a final a bit sweeter than the front.

Spiesy (2338) - Sydney, Greater London, AUSTRALIA - JUL 23, 2003
Bottled. Murky gold with a decent brown tinge about it. Biscuity, sour aroma, dirty stagnant flavour. There was nothing to suggest foul play with regard to the bottle, so Iím going to have to attribute this filth to the beer itself. Honeydew gone wrong.

duff (5484) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - JUL 17, 2003
Really flowery hops in the aroma, aswell as some honey sweetness. First up its sweet (malts and the honey), dried out a touch by some citrusy piney hops, a bit too sweet at the start for me, but it wasn;t bad. Nicely aromatic.

TipsyMcStager (1139) - Calgary, Alberta, CANADA - JUN 30, 2003
Musty basement, undetectable honey in the aroma. Pours pale brown and flat. Very thin, watery palate. Flavour is just as bland.

presario (4580) - Stampede City, Alberta, CANADA - JUN 30, 2003
Thin colour. Watery beer. Sharp hops in contrast with palate, weak flavour and appearance. Cidery. A weak effort.
