12 oz bottle. Poured a beautiful mead-colored gold with a fizzy white head that dissapeared rather quickly. Aroma of lots of honey, clover flower, sawdust, and fresh bread. Sadly, a really nice nose gave way to not more than a pretty average tasting, light bodied beer. Plenty of carbonation. Tastes alright, but I was expecting more after the reall pleasant aroma.

Light grassy aroma. Looks like a pilsner, sort of. Flavor is flat, and a bit metallic. Flavor is disturbing. Some hops, but a corny sweetness tends to dominate. Id take it over any common American lager.

jake65 (3511) - Meridian, Idaho, USA - MAY 6, 2006
I enjoyed this seasonal brew. Taste is balanced with a sweetness of malts and caramels that compliments a light hoppiness and some mixed spice flavors. Simple, yet somewhat complex beer that is easy to enjoy.

SDalkoholic (2375) - Linda Vista, California, USA - APR 29, 2006
Color is gold and little murky with thin head. Aroma is grass and malt. Flavor is boring and bland and has little to no trace of honey with a light background of spice. This should be classified as a Kolsch instead.

Pours yellow-gold with a frothy white head. Smells of spice. Small hint of Honey and cinnamon. Nothing special.

harlequinn (2744) - Tacoma, Washington, USA - APR 18, 2006
This beer suuuuuucks! The pours is a very clear golden color with a very quickly diminishing creamy white head. Aroma is un-natural, sweet chemical candy aromas, with a flavor that is moderately sweet, honey and toasted cereal maltiness. Very thin and watery. Unpleasant to drink.

luckygirl (1223) - Boulder, Colorado, USA - APR 4, 2006
Nope. Dont think I like the smell of this one too much. Beer pours a clear light orange-gold color with a small, frothy, white, mostly and quickly dimishing head. The aroma is a little creepy: malty with light notes of husky toasted grain; Hoppy with a light note of chamomile flowers and straw; light notes of honey and a tiny trace of something that smells chemicallike permanent wave. The flavor is moderately sweet, lightly bitter with an average-length, lightly astringenty, lightly bittersweet finish. Popcorn kernal retros. The body is light, the texture is watery and the carbonation is fizzy. Bears can ave it.

Ernest (7594) - Boulder, Colorado, USA - APR 4, 2006
Head is initially small, fizzy, white, mostly diminishing. Body is clear medium yellow. Aroma is lightly malty (toasted grain), lightly hoppy (flowers), with a note of SweeTarts, hint of honey. Flavor is moderately sweet, lightly bitter. Finish is lightly to moderately sweet, lightly to moderately bitter, slightly husky. Light to medium body, watery texture, lively/fizzy carbonation. Thin, watery, slightly too sweet to be a summer quencher, not much aroma (but not unpleasant). Boring.

Crosling (1864) - Fort Collins, Colorado, USA - MAR 14, 2006
Dull and disappointing aroma, which shows little character comes out of the yellow body and white froth. Nothing balanced about it. Understated spiced character hardly comes through. A percentage of wheat malt could make it a bit more balanced. Its husky and could be sweeter. Gross.

ChillCoat (1029) - Concord, California, USA - JAN 5, 2006
Bottled. Pours a hazy, Belgian wit side of yellow with a big white head that leaves heavy lacing. Honey and malt nose. Tastes like honey and water. Watered down honey really. Then theres honey...and water. Aftertaste is honey with some water. They told me it had honey and water in it, didnt they?
