tnkw01 (1833) - Knoxville, Tennessee, USA - APR 8, 2016
Can. Dark golden-amber in color with a nice three finger head. The aroma has a noticeable honey smell. The taste was more bitter then I would expect. While it had notes of honey there wasn’t very much sweetness.

22 oz bottle. Pours a cloudy amberish orange with a large white fluffy head that leaves a decent amount of lacing. Aroma of honey, white bread, toasty malt, citrus hops, hint of clove. Taste is white bread, honey, oat, citrus hops, clove, banana, hint of malt and caramel. Dry finish of honey, lemon and malt. Light medium body, thin texture, average carbonation. Not bad, not great. Good body and nice honey coming through.

UPDATED: NOV 16, 2015 smell is sweet and light of honey...quite nice...taste starts a little bitter actually, then mellows out into sweeter territory, bitterness dissipates with additional sips...leaving a better balance. Starts hoppy, Finishes malty...interesting...x2
