3.1 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Orange, lively but thin head. Some honey in the aroma, but it doesn’t dominate. Full-bodied malty taste which transitions into a dark and sticky hoppiness, which remains in the finish.

Bottle. This is a basic ESB without much going for it. A little bit of sweetness coming though but not too much.

2.8 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Brown 500ml bottle, best before Feb 2008, drank March 2007.
Poured into my Hoegarden ’Grand Cru’ tulip glass.
This honey flavoured beer looks OK, terracotta orange in colour with a full foaming white head.
No huge honey aroma, but there is a weak mix of flowery smells.
Citrus overtones, grapefruit too, a strange flavour, not bad, just strange.
The grapefruit taste stays, giving you a dry aftertaste.
Nothing wrong with this at all, just not my thing. The scores could have been 0.5 in either direction, which would have made this a fantastic beer, or a crap one. I think I’ve got it right.

2.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 7/20
Rating from an old notebook. Bottle. Deep golden coloured. Your standard sort of best bitter with a touch of honey. It doesn’t really change this average beer very much.

Warning! Early amateur rating! Only a hint of honey. Fruity and malty and with some graperfuit hop bitterness. Alright.

pours a dark amber, topped off with a fluffy cream head. The nose was mostly sweet, but not overpoweringly so, a light maltiness came through as did subtle citrus notes. The first taste is very much that of a pale ale, but slowly the sweetness of the honey asserts itself, but without becoming too much and cloying. Robust and velvety.

3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 14/20
Slightly cloudy amber with a good head, slight honey aroma, not much taste of honey more bitter and hoppy.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
A: Brown with oranage icecream colored foam, half light head
S: A fresh (spring) smell of honey
T: Honey, grape fruit
AT: Long strong aftertaste
Not the best of the honey ales I’ve found! But a honey ale always resives extra points due to its swetness.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle. Hazy orange amber with a creamy orange-tinted head. No lace. Sweet honey and citrus aroma. Nice biscuity malt and honey flavour balanced by citrusy bitterness, like marmalade. Medium bodied. Very tasty.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Hazy amber colour. Powerful flavour of honey comes through with some banana. Hops offer a sharp, citrusy edge. Texture quite thin and watery. Sweet, sugary aftertaste.
