harrisoni (13618) - Ashford, Kent, ENGLAND - SEP 14, 2012
500ml bottle from Sainsburys Ashford. Very pale gold clear thin lasting white head. Floral grassy hoppy aroma. Too carbonated. But I like the floral grassy hop swallow and the lasting bitterness on the finish. Pretty decent. Fine. Ok. Sligthly above average golden ale. Can’t find the honey in it, but i suppose there is a slight sweetness on the finish. Me In Honey.

Leighton (10781) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - OCT 7, 2012
Bottle at home in London. Pours perfectly clear yellow with a mild, white foam head. Aroma holds some floral hops, doughy malts, light cabbage. Medium sweet flavor, doughy malts, white bread, white sugar, mellow straw, some light herbal bitterness. Light bodied with average carbonation. Fairly sweet to finish, light metallic zing, some further white bread malts. There’s a sugary edge in here; perhaps that’s the honey. There’s also an almost respectable hop bite of dry hay that lingers. An OK beer overall.

imdownthepub (10141) - Banbury, Oxfordshire, ENGLAND - OCT 11, 2012
Bottled, 500ml from Sainsburys, Banbury. Gold with white head. Light, slightly sweetish beer, there is a honeyed, malty body leading to a fruity, strawberry finish. A touch of bitterness in the close, just could do with more body.

maeib (8664) - Wootton, Northampton, Northamptonshire, ENGLAND - JUL 4, 2013
Bottled 27/06/13. A very hazy yellow orange coloured beer with a whitish head and lace. A full bodied sweetish beer. Definite honey although not as sickly as some. Pretty well rounded and good enough.

leaparsons (8036) - Leicester, Leicestershire, ENGLAND - SEP 16, 2012
Bottle. Golden with a thin white foam. Aromas are lemon marmalade with apricot and base biscuit. Locket lozenges with a light woodiness. Flavours are sweet and jammy with mixed tropical fruit and bitter lemon. Clean and grassy with a dry lightly bitter finish. Pretty good.

DruncanVeasey (7157) - NUNEATON, Top 23, Warwickshire, ENGLAND - SEP 27, 2012
In Spainsbury’s beer-off. Pale gold with a honeycombed white head. Dishcloth lime, elderflower, lychee nose; pleasant taste with herbal, grassy hop notes, shaves of lime and tangerine, flowers. Vanilla/dough/Monster Munch linger with a crisp, ringing citrus bitterness to back it. Discreet honey. Worth drinking again.

downender (6245) - Bristol, Gloucestershire, ENGLAND - SEP 15, 2012
Bottle as part of the Sainsbury’s beer festival. Golden with a slight white head and plenty of carbonation. Light, grassy hop aroma with some sweetish malts. Easy drinking, with some underlying sweetness, solid malts and softly bitter finish. Ok.
