Ungstrup (29107) - 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 can’t tell the type. The honey notes are also accentuated and very pleasant without being too sweet - and giving way for a good dry finish.

fiulijn (14323) - 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.

harrisoni (13248) - 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.

UPDATED: FEB 26, 2007 Bottled
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)
