<<<//>>>A light golden beer with a zesty edge and a hint of honey sweetness, Organic Honey Dew is a naturally palatable brew that finds popularity among lager drinkers as well as ale fans. It’s a popular misconception that only the honey is organic, but in fact the beer is brewed with entirely organic ingredients. It uses organic honey imported from Brazil, plus organic English malt and hops including the First Gold hop variety.

Beese (6382) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - SEP 21, 2019
500ml bottle in 2013. Clear mid golden with a white head. Lots of these honey ales kicking around at the time, but this was one of the better (read; not disgusting) ones. Honey in the aroma, with floral hops and sponge cake. Flavour was a little sweet, but had enough graininess to not be saccharine.

UPDATED: SEP 10, 2019 500ml bottle brewed in England at 5%. Almost murky golden colour. Smallish head, in parts active, in parts docile, not terribly long-lasting. Aroma is lager-esque with the key distinguishing note of honey. Moderate carbonation, flattening quickly. In short, it's a lager with honey, at least as far as taste goes. Don't let that put you off though: Fuller's bring their quality craftsmanship to the table here as usual, so it's a good lager you're drinking - you can actually taste the citrus in the grassy hops, even if it's faint, and the similarly light malt is pleasantly sweet - furthermore, the honey kicks in towards the end, and that's when this beer comes into its own. The honey ties everything together, adds body where the beer needs it, and coats the mouth making the flavours develop and linger. This is refreshing, and also worth savouring. But it's not brilliant either, just good. Fuller's can do better than good - I don't know what constrained them here, but I suspect it has something to do with making everything organic and then trying to target the organic market instead of the (golden) ale market. This is definitely one to try if you'd like to wean your lager-drinking friends onto bigger and better things. It does say serve chilled, after all...

UPDATED: AUG 22, 2019 Bright golden colour. Aroma: honey, nectar, flowers. Taste: watery, honey. Aftertaste: melon and flowers. Seems too sweet and unbalanced, aroma is pretty good though.

WortMeister11 (178) - - AUG 2, 2019
UPDATED: AUG 26, 2019 Aroma: biscuit, honey, herbal hop Appearance: clear golden color with a one-finger white head. Taste: biscuit, bready malt, honey, herbal hop Palate: medium-low body, medium carbonation, very easy to drink Overall: It is very easy to drink. The honey flavor in the aroma and taste blends in very well and is stronger in the aroma than in the taste. Interesting and refreshing.

dimeon (1595) - Johannesburg, SOUTH AFRICA - JUN 19, 2019
UPDATED: JUN 19, 2019 Backlog. Slightly hazy gold with a medium white head. The honey is very apparent, but works well.

AleChecker31 (7) - - JUN 17, 2019 does not count
UPDATED: JUN 17, 2019 A little shocked at low score. Beatiful organic beer.. Strong fizz. Minor sweetness. Slight farmyard flavours. Refreshing. Lovely beer. Tastes organic. Fizz of lager with potent natural flavours.

NobleSampler19 (2691) - Vienna, AUSTRIA - APR 8, 2019
UPDATED: APR 8, 2019 Getrunken in einem schottischen Pub in Wien. Der Name heißt soviel wie 'Honigtau', also jene süßen Auscheidungen von Blattläusen, mit jenen Ameisen gerne ihre Larven füttern und jener klebrige Beschlag mit dem Hobbygärtner überall auf der Welt kämpfen...ob das ein guter Name ist? Andererseits ist das Zeug auch zuckersüß Und so ist auch dieses Bier: Es ist ordentlich Honig drinnen, aber man übertreibt es nicht. So eintsteht ein schönes, süßes Aroma, das aber nicht pickig wird. Kann man lassen.

ichijo3 (238) - - APR 6, 2019
UPDATED: APR 6, 2019 Leicht malziger Geruch, Honig? Kann sein. Goldenes Bier, mit normaler Schaumkrone die schnell einfällt. Der Antrunk ist wässrig. Eine dezente Hopfenbittere lässt sich erkennen, insgesamt aber ziemlich aromenarm und lasch. Den Honig kann man allerhöchstens erahnen. Hätte eine leichte Süße vertragen können. Absolut kein Vergleich zu unserem Odins.

visionthing (6437) - Tallinn, ESTONIA - APR 3, 2019
UPDATED: APR 3, 2019 50cl bottle from Nõmme Comarket, Tallinn. Pours clear golden with a modest, white head. Grainy and moderate hoppy with hints of honey. Medium to moderate sweet with fairly low flavour intensity and bitterness. Quite drinkable, but not quite my cup of tea.
