2.7 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
cloudy brown. smooth offwhite to very light brown head.
honey, metallic or stale hops in the aroma.
flavor is mostly honey and caramel. lots of light caramel, some toffee, some honey. not much malt, no sign of any hops, except in the aftertaste where a decent amount of bitterhops kick in. Pretty weird even for an english beer.
overall the taste is sort of okay towards fine, if you are in the mood for honeysweet beer. it’s like there is the very cloying sweet honey, then the very bitterhoppy hops, but nothing in between to bridge the two, leaving a messy or unbalanced beer. I think they could get to something good if they tried to improve on the recipe.

2.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Bottle at Greenmantle in Edinburgh. Poured pleasant light amber colour with a decent white head. Aroma of malts, grass, citrus and honey. Sweet taste of grass and malts. Became more sweet in the finish, where the honey came out. Medium-bodied. Overall this tasted pleasant enough, it was smooth and well balanced. The problem was that it was a bit bland and not nearly honey enough.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
500ml bottle. Pours quite a dark gold for a beer of this style, with very little head. The aroma is a pleasant combination of honey and cinnamon. Initial grassy hops mix with a pervasive honey flavour, which lingers into the finish, and gives this beer a lasting smoothness. The honey also serves to coat the mouth in a most satisfying way. An unusual, yet very pleasant, beer.

500ml bottle. Pours a light golden yellow with a small head. Smells a bit artificial and sweet. Taste is a bit better, sweet and honey to start with a bitter finish. Bit too much carbonation and a little thin on the body.
