yalnikim (800) - Wellington, NEW ZEALAND - MAR 14, 2009
Tasted 15/03/2009. 500ml bottle courtesy of BozoNZ. Very hazy yellow gold, thick white creamy foam, sweet honeyish malt, some floral notes, with a strong nettle-like hop flavour and long strong bitterness. Better than the average honey beer but still reasonably yada yada...

Sigmund (4932) - Tau, NORWAY - AUG 31, 2008
500 ml brown bottle, thanks to oh6gdx and chris_o. ABV is 4.3%. Golden brownish colour, slightly hazy. Moderate white head. Floral aroma with distinct notes of heather and honey. The flavour is fairly sweet and malty but also earthy, notes of honey but not too much, and there is a distinct hoppy and resinous bitterness in the finish and aftertaste. Quite interesting beer.

ante (3374) - Stockholm, SWEDEN - AUG 29, 2008
Bottled at Monks Cafe, Stockholm. Pours out in a hazy golden colour with a low white foam. Quite sharp aroma of hay-like and orangey hops. Fruity and rather hoppy flavour of mandarin, honey, soil and orange-peels. Long bitter finish of orange-peels and resin.

omhper (19185) - Tyresö, SWEDEN - AUG 28, 2008
Bottled at Monk’s Café, Stockholm. Hazy deep golden, small head. Hay-like hop aroma. Medium sweet with with rounded mouthfeel. Chewy husky malt with traces of lemon. Growing resiny bitterness. The honey is not very evident, which is a good thing.

Svesse (6036) - Hässelby, SWEDEN - AUG 23, 2008
(Cask at GBBF, London, 6 Aug 2008) Golden yellow colour with frothy, white head. Fruity nose with distinct honey notes. Fruity taste with honey, tropical fruit and a slightly soapy, citrussy bitterness in the finish. Fairly sweet honey character. Refreshing but hardly exciting.

MesandSim (7119) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - AUG 13, 2008
A Mes rate: Bottle at Chris O’s Pre GBBF Tasting
Slightly hazy golden brown with a thin white head. Biscuity malt base with some faint fruit and corn with a slight hit of hops right at the death. Cheap tasting honey spoils it throughout.

Ethereal (2417) - Los Angeles, California, USA - AUG 9, 2008
Cask at GBBF 08. Clear golden amber with a small white head. The intense pure honey aroma hits your nose long before you get the glass to your lips. Given how honey dominates the aroma, the beer is surprisingly hoppy on the tongue and has a decent dry finish. Very much a non-standard honey beer that a lot of brewers could learn from when knocking up their over-sweet honey concoctions.

Cask (GBBF 2008) - Golden in colour with a slight haze. Sweet malt aroma with a hint of honey. Honey features in the taste with malt and hops. Refreshing.
