Heavy sediment in bottom of bottle that plague many honeys beers. If you can get past the floaties be ready for a sweet honey beer with moderate bitterness. Lion Brewery has committed Kung-Fu treachery releasing Honey Suckle under the Stegmaier name.

Bottle. amber color with floaty things in it. Looks like lava lamp?!?!??!!?? Smells nice enough; sweet, grainyish. Flava is remarkably good- blend of malt then sweet def honey then hops then honey again; finishes sweet and honeyish but not grossly sweet; very enjoyable; feels crisp and invigorating yet not watery; great summery feel. Surprisingly this is a very good beer.

Not a great beer. I try to get local brews wherever i go, and got this in Hawley, pa. Supposedly comes from wilkes-barre. Tastes very bitter. There is some honey smell, but it tastes rancid.

UPDATED: JUL 22, 2012 OK, here goes: Evidently a rare beer or nobody wants to taste it. OH MY, you should see the things floating in there! From a bottle, lots of visuals in this otherwise pale lager lookin thing, that is except for the cloudy little balls in ther. Smell is sweet lager, something sweet on the nose fer sure. Taste is big strong as rude as IPA, no lie! Big plowing slam on my taste buds, its smell is unlike its taste, wew. Yes, a big penetrating nastyist steggem I can remember, what happened to the mild mannered brewery I knew in the past? I tell you, this site says 5% but it has got to be a 7%. I really think they got this batch mixed up with that expermental batch of IPA that steggie had hidden over in the corner. Man, those flakes just keep floating around in there, not sure if this is bad or what and if it is you can’t tell becasue of all the double hop bitterness. Does have a slight malt feel to it on the finish. Now I feel this weird citrus almost orange but more like a green bitter thing setting in. Kudos on the appearence! Since I’m an IPA hater, for the taste I was going to give this a 3, but now its growing into a 4.

The aroma definitely has honey but the beer seems funky. The hops are grassy and the malt is like mixed grain. The appearance is golden with floating particles. The taste is somewhat like the aroma. The palate is thin. Overall I don’t really know what to think about this one is bitter and funky but not in a completely bad way.

2.9 AROMA 10/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
Floral nose, honeysuckle, lemongrass, tulip. Clear amber, medium head. Surprising weight for the style, medium body. A tad cloying, cane sugar and lemongrass. Sugary sweet finish. Neat idea, and the aroma was spot on. It just doesn’t taste as good. Dial back the adjuncts and this could be a very good beer.

Pours clear gold with a white head. Aroma is honey, caramel and grass. Taste is sweet with the honey adding a funky finish. Takes some getting used to the honey, but decent. Light mouth feel made it easy to have a few.

Draft at Billy Jack’s Harrisonburg. Pours a clear golden color with a thin frothy off-white head. Decent head retention. Aroma of honey and grainy malts. The taste is honey, bread, grain and a tart finish. Medium bodied with high carbonation.
