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.

Appears dark gold in color with almost no head at all. Smells faintly of the advertised honey. Taste is dry and faintly malty but not particularly honey flavored. Medium bodied with moderate quantity of CO2. Would be hard pressed to name honey as an ingredient in a blind taste test. Not a poor beer but nothing great here.

Great aroma, nice light flavor without the bitter after taste. I would definitely drink this beer again. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Transfer from BA review on 5-24-13- Poured from bottle into a pint glass Appearance – Pours a hazy deep golden color with tiny carbonation bubbles seen streaming through the body of the brew. A small white head is present upon pouring which fades very fast to leave a tiny level of lace. Smell- The aroma is of sweet honey and a bit of bready and biscuit malt. Mixed with these are some smell of a little bit of orange as well as some other light fruit flavors. Taste – The taste is much drier and blander then would be expected from the nose but does contain a decent level of a sweet honey flavor and light bready flavor. Light fruit flavors come to the tongue more toward the middle of the taste, but remain rather faint. Overall these flavors take the taste to its end where a semi-dry and crisp malt and light fruit flavor is left to linger on the tongue. Mouthfeel – The body of the beer is very light with a carbonation level that is rather average. Perfect for the style and it makes for one very easy drinking feel. Overall- Nothing too exceptional here. Although it is a little subdued on taste it is very easy drinking and rather refreshing. A decent session style brew.

maaaaybe a touch past it’s prime. Floral aroma, kinda mellow, slight cardboard. Honey is there but in a background sort a way, and there’s 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 there’s 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 (1580) - 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 I’ve tried.
