COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
This medium-bodied golden ale is brewed with local wildflower honey. Full-flavored beer. Rich. Robust. Bittersweet beginning. Quickly mellows, leaving the palate with a subtle hint of honey. Hive pairs well with cedar-plank salmon, and, if you have a sweet tooth, baklava.

maaaaybe a touch past itís prime. Floral aroma, kinda mellow, slight cardboard. Honey is there but in a background sort a way, and thereís not a lot else to grab your attention. Spring seasonal?"

From a bottle. Pours clear golden amber with a fizzy white head. Tastes like dry biscuit malt, honey, and grass. Light body and low carbonation. Smells like grassy, sweet malt, light honey.

Bottle. Pours golden amber with white head. Aroma is cereal and biscuit malts, light toast, honey, light floral notes, and faint grassiness. Flavor is malty with light honey sweetness, faint citrus esters, and faint hop bitterness; semisweet finish. Light body and medium carbonation.

@ Party Town / Florence KY --- Clear medium amber, head cover, bands of lace. Taste is unassuming malt with a little honey that backs into a light finish. Not really any bitters, not carbonation, just a slide into lighter and lighter until thereís nothing left. However.....at 4%, it works okay.

355ml bottle. Deep gold colour, a bit of white head. Toasted honey and bread aroma. Sweet taste, some toasty bitterness. Body a little watery. Overall, not much going on. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Straw color with at thin white head. Aroma is slight honey with a bit of funky, slightly off nuttiness. Flavor is slightly bitter malt with a bit of honey. Not very sweet though. Mostly falls flat, reminds me of an uninspired lager. Wife: 2.9

ContemplateBeer (1530) - Louisville, Kentucky, USA - MAY 25, 2014
Aroma: Honey biscuits with a very mild floral hop presence. Appearance: Medium copper color with a skin of white head. Flavor: A little watery up front with a lean honey biscuit presence; floral hop in near balance throughout. Sweet, kinda grainy finish. Palate: Light body, slick texture, flat carbonation, abrupt finish. Overall: Pretty underwhelming, really. Have to agree that this my least favorite beer of their lineup that Iíve tried.

On tap at Proof. Sweet grain aroma. Amber-gold pour. Tastes are cereal, honey, tea. Ok, easy drinking.

drfabulous (3920) - Lexington, Kentucky, USA - APR 2, 2014
12 ounce bottle. Orange like in color. Slight woody off taste followed by just a bit of honey. Bit of a letdown from a brewery I really like. Not my favorite of their beers.

[March 2014] (like an illiterate fool I accidentally entered this under Wyld.)
12 oz. bottle best before June 3, 2014 from Chamberís Liquor. Pours a crystalline copper with a tall white head. The nose is very clean and balanced. Pretty impressed with the clarity of aromas here. There is natural honey, earthy Euro-type hopping and light notes of barley. The flavor is pretty crisp with a pleasant, woody, papery hop bite that just peaks out a little beyond the natural honey sweetness. This is definitely not something I would drink often, but for a sessionable honey golden ale, this is about as good as it can get.
