COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Cask & Bottle Conditioned, Occasional;
Genuine Norfolk honey is added to this brew at the boil giving a golden beer with a honey nose. A bitter taste with a definite hop edge leaving a good honey aftertaste.

Pours a beautiful clear golden colour with perfect conditioning and tiny bubbles rising through the beer from start to finish. Nose is floral and very light honey scent. Taste is round and full with a nice sweet upfront flavour. Some light maltiness and a slightly sweet, floral finish. Very low in honey which is a bit of a shame. Was hoping for slightly more pungent flavours. Very easy to drink.

Bottled. Yellowish orange colour with a small fluffy white head. Aroma is honey, some floral and malty notes along with herbs. Flavour is honey, sweet fruits, some sweet malts along with some mild notes from berries. Easy to drink, but nothing that exciting.

floydian1 (1173) - FNQ, Australia, - SEP 14, 2014
500ml bottle (unfiltered unpasteurised). A decently quaffable honey ale without too much honey sweetness (though definitely there on the nose). Light dry hop bitterness. Hazy dark golden appearance with large loose white head that subsides quickly.

StueyD (1443) - Heacham, Norfolk, ENGLAND - APR 6, 2012
A light amber coloured beer with a weak white head. A light aroma, slightly sweet suggesting honey, with a faint roasted malt element in the background. The initial mouthfeel is dry, but later there is a thickness that, again, suggesting honey. The taste however is lacking in honey, there is a citrusy hop flavour and a light maltiness in the background, but a distinct lack of the sweet stuff!
