Pours a golden colour with a long lasting creamy off-white head. Fragrances of roasted barley, brown sugar and honey. Honey flavors hit your taste buds right away, giving place to a sweet mouthfeeling full of malts sugars. Well balance honey brew that is always refreshing.

341ml bottle. Pour clear golden with a non lasting foam. Aroma is of pale malt with shy notes of vanilla. Taste is from the malt (really pale) and notes of hops (really discret). Light body and normal carbonation for the style. Thin and lightly salty. Very refreshing, made for the mainstream sales and neophyte drinker. Been there, drank that, next...

A generic but quite drinkable beer. It contains honey, seemingly, not much else to say that would be relevant... It doesn’t even have the excuse of being cheap. AleRider78 (1122) - Winchester, Ontario, CANADA - AUG 31, 2015
bottle. Poured an average size head and quickly dissipated. Has a pale golden colour with mild carbonation. Smell a bit of the honey right off the bat. Some other aroma that escapes me at the moment, will investigate. haha. Has a sweet aftertaste. Flavours of honey, malt and wheat. Nice tingly mouthfeel. Not bad.

Little aroma. Typical ale flavour with a nice honey sweetness. Nice sparkle on the tongue. budedou (977) - Saint Etienne, FRANCE - JUL 3, 2015
Copper golden sparkling colour with a light white head. Light sweet malty aroma, some fruitiness with just a hint of honey. The body is sweet with malt, sprinkles of light fruit and a touch of brown sugar. Spritzy and sweet, finishes with a very light bitterness. ClarkVV (6708) - Boston, Massachusetts, USA - APR 29, 2015

As with most lighter honey ales, the head fizzles away to nothing leaving a light caramel colored, clear body behind.
Nose of fermented honey (floral, somewhat acidic with touches of vanilla and wax) very light biscuits and maybe a touch of floral hops. That may be stretching though. No alcohol, at least, nor is it metallic.
Flavor delivers a weak note of caramel-like flavor mixed in with a touch of honey slickness on the finish. In between there is light waxiness, touches of cardboard and stale biscuits and a lot of fizziness. Body is medium with a wet, fizzy, somewhat slippery texture. For this (usually awful) "style" I’ve certainly had worse. At least you can taste bits of honey that taste real and there are none of the major offenders here (diacetyl, DMS, etc...). That being said, it’s severely lacking in texture and aroma and completely lacking any flavor complexity/depth. But it goes down fairly inoffensively, overall.
341ml bottle. Clear golden with a frothy white head. Flavors are cereals and honey with fruity notes. Light body, lively carbonation, slick texture. Alusmamuts (1976) - LATVIA - JAN 5, 2015
Light amber with almost no head. Malty aroma. Bitter hoppy taste with sweet malty notes, some carbonation on the tongue tip.
