Grace House is the dwelling on the grounds of the winery and brewery and was constructed in the 1840s. Like the style of the Grace House, this ale is brewed in a more delicate style. We blend wheat and barley malts to produce this light-bodied golden ale. With just a touch of sweetness from locally-produced clover honey, it finishes clean and smooth with a slightly fruity aroma.

Light golden with small white head. Aroma grain, possibly faint honey. Light body. Some honey up front, then fades into nothing in particular. Ok overall.

I don’t remember much about this one. Had on tap at the brewery/vineyard. Most of their beer was pretty forgettable.

The beer pours clear, light gold with a bit of foamy white head that fades rather quickly. The aroma is fairly light, grainy with some wheat, some light floral hops, and a fair amount of honey. The taste is somewhat bland, a bit of honey sweetness up front, more wheat in the middle, and honey and orange on the finish. The honey doesn’t make it too sweet, which is always a bit of a concern with a beer like this, but the honey flavor really takes over the beer, leaving little complexity. This beer is refreshing (only 3.8% ABV!) and has a nice honey flavor, but is pretty one dimensional. Might be nice for a hot summer afternoon, but not good for much else.

Bottle- Pours a nice golden color with a small head that fades quickly with no lacing. Has a primarily grain aroma woth a hint of honey sweetness. Has a mild wheat taste with a like sticky sweetness. Light body with a light grain & sticky aftertaste. Decent for a small brewer. Got this as part of a 6-pack mixer.

Bottle that we sort of discovered while doing inventory. No idea how old this is, but I don’t think it’s something that’s been around in quite a while. Pours an almost clear golden amber with a huge white head. Smells like old cardboard dipped in honey, lots of age on this and none of it good. Flavor is just old stale paper and some weird honey sweetness. Finishes with a bit of a booze note. Not so good.

There is the gentle, sweet smell of honey to start off. It pours very light in color, completely clear light straw yellow in color with a small head. This is its weakest component. The flavor is light floral honey grazing the palate ever so gently with sweetness. There is no potency of flavors or bitterness.

(bottle - 12 oz) Gold color with a fizzy white head. Aroma is sweet and odd at the beginning with some light hints of wheat. Flavor is sweet honey at the beginning with a very bitter wheat middle. The honey disappears and leaves only wheat and bitterness on the finish.

bottle: mixed feelings about this one. The arouma had a sweet smell, but one of my friends immediately identified it as vomit. I think that’s a bit harsh, but I do sense some "bile" notes and cardboard in the nose. The brew pours amber, tastes of sweet malts, honey and clover, sweet lingering honey in the aftertaste. Brightly carbonated with a light body. I thought it was balanced with just the right amount of bitter. Not a bad brew, but once you get the "vomit" label in your head, its hard to get out.

Deep gold with fluffy white head and lace. Aroma of paper honey and mustiness. Sweet malt and honey flavor. Nice body with good carbonation.
