3.4 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
It looks like I’m alone here, but I really liked this beer. The only thing I will say is that I think it may have been overcarbonated. The second I opened it, foam shot out about 2-3 inches and it was hell to pour.
Yellow body with a great head (maybe due to over-carbonation) that poured worse (or better) than a Duvel. Great retention. Aroma of homey and malts was very prevolent to me. Very crisp on the nose and pallate. Nice honey backbone to smooth out the hops nicely. Very smooth drinker. I could see sitting down with a six pack or more and not getting sick of it. It was a very fresh bottle so maybe they changed something since the other reviewers. Maybe worth a revisit by previous BA’s. Solid offering.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
12oz bottle pours a clear golden/orange with a medium white head. Aroma of doughy yeast and sweetness from the honey. Taste of yeast with a slight sweetness on the edges of the palate from the honey with a touch of hops. Pretty clean and refreshing would have liked to see it a little more crisp, but overall an enjoyable Pils.

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Pours a clear light amber color with a minimal head. Has a scent of mostly wheat honey and sweet malts. Has a smooth, crisp, clean taste of honey and wheat. Tasted really good with lunch. Essentially taste like a Leinenkugel’s Honey Weiss with a bolder taste and thicker texture.

2.7 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 11/20
12oz bottle picked up in Ashland. Orange-tan, a pinch of chill haze. Steady thin, creamy white head, carbonation bubbles rising underneath. Buttery pff aroma. I guess it could be the honey, but if you need to add honey to your Pils, something is wrong. Assumably made by and for the training wheels side of the equation. An OK, tolerable Honey Lager, a terrible Pils anything. Embarrassingly bad....even worse that it costs the better part of ten dollars a six pack.

2.1 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
Golden amber with white head. Sweet malt, earthy, candy, and medicine like aroma. Flavor like aroma, syrupy and mild hint of bittering hops. Medium body, lite bitterness, and sweet malt dominated. Not quite sure why this is classified as a pilsener.

1 AROMA 2/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 2/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 3/20
Overcarbonated, sweet, more like an epl or apl. I mean this one was super carbed.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
12oz bottle at the Tagalong Golf Resort in Birchwood, WI. Dark yellow pour with a nice white head. Light malty, sweet aroma. Very smooth, a little honey and a nice hop bite in the finish, not bad.

2.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 11/20
Hazy gold pour, thin white head vanishes quickly, but does leave a few spots of lace. Aroma is faint, grassy hops, cereals. Honey really comes out in the flavor, also creamy, cereal elements. Definite funkiness in the finish; I’m ambivalent as to whether it’s a good funk or a bad one. Thin bodied, somewhat watery.
