Included in Sainsbury’s Great Gritish Beer Hunt 2013
A warm Golden ale craft brewed with a blend of choice malts and hops to which we add a prepared infusion of honey and whole cone hops. The delicate sweet honey notes balance beautifully with the lemon and gooseberry aromas of our Cascade and Nelson Sauvin hops.

meggark (9) - - MAY 27, 2016 does not count
Colour - dark amber with light frothy head Aroma - light and slightly citrus like Taste - smooth but balanced with light hoppy bitterness which becomes stronger on the finish before giving way to a slight hint of honey. Not hugely complex but pleasant none the less. Another decent beer from William Bros.

pivnizub (10139) - Bochum, Porúří, GERMANY - DEC 28, 2015
Flasche: Deep golden, a bit hazy, mid-sized and quite stable off-white head; sweetish-grainy, surely a bit honeyish, nose; moderate sweet-bitter flavour, relatively light bodied, pretty soft; mild and only slightly lingering pale-malty and delicately hoppy finish. Not exciting, but quite nice…

Russo (2012) - Hemhofen, GERMANY - DEC 24, 2015
Bottled. Slightly hazy golden color with a fluffy white head that keeps a nice white lacing. Aroma is floral hops and mandarin notes. Flavor is light bitter at beginning and then explode letting the honey notes comes up. Flat carbonation in a medium to full body with a slick textures and a long hone bitter finish.

I had a bottle of Honey Thief last year which I enjoyed, but this one didn't seem to hit the mark in the same way. Kind of flat and dull. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Light golden colour. Some honey aroma and taste. Not much else. Not offensive but not really interesting either.
