Clear orange with thick white rungs around the edges. Aroma is like honey on wheat bread, followed-up by some cleansing citrus hints. Flavor is fresh honey straight from the hive - has a deeper, honeycomb extraction taste to it. Sweet, some nutty underlying characteristics and caramel sugar accents, but the honey is the star here.

Stemmy honey flavor with a bit of brown sugar sweetness. Less of a honey emphasis in the flavor, it’s balanced with a rye-like component or some sort of green bitter hops. Ughsmash (7510) - Pewaukee, Wisconsin, USA - DEC 21, 2005
Tap. Clear, medium golden pour with a short white head. Spicy hops, sweet caramel, and lots of fresh honey in the aroma. Honey abounded in the flavor as well, with citrus and caramel accents and a mild bitterness around the edges. Balance was quite nice. Crisp, smooth, and sweet sensations on the palate. Finish was a little thick with the sweetness, but this was certainly a tasty brew. Skyview (6099) - Papoose Jct, Minnesota, USA - APR 17, 2007
Fourth stop during Wisconsin Trip #2 and one of 11 brews offered at this small town brewpub. Pours a clear light pale orange yellow brew with a small white head that disappears fast. Lacing is fair to good. Aromas include caramel, light citrus rind, some sugary clover honey and bitter hops. Finish is average with light carbonation, a little on the thick side, and sweet after taste. phishpond417 (2088) - Madison, Wisconsin, USA - AUG 19, 2008
Probably one of my favorites of the day- pours a clear bright golden colour with a small white head- excellent retention decent lacing. Well balanced, with soft honey character not overly sweet but smooth lingering finish with delicate saaz hops.

Non-descript nose, surprisingly, as it tastes as if there is a hive in my glass. Just too much of a heavy sweetness for me. kp (10880) - Woodstock, Georgia, USA - SEP 1, 2007

On tap at the brewpub. Pours a clear deep gold with a near white head that dissipates completely. Aroma has notes of honey backed by sweet grains and sweet bread as well as a hint of butterscotch. Flavor is quite sweet with honey in the start and butterscotch in the finish. Scubatrip (610) - Annandale, Virginia, USA - AUG 30, 2010
On tap at the brewpub, pours a clear orange with no head. Bready aroma, sweet malty taste with notes of honey and corn. It’s ok, especially for a "light" beer at a brewpub. 1FastSTi (3360) - Glendale, Wisconsin, USA - AUG 6, 2005
Pours to a thick white creamy head atop a straw colored body. Slight hazyness. Fully lasting head. The aroma is strongly honey. Sort of reminds me of Viking’s Mjod (aroma). The flavor is lots of honey and something like lactose sugars. (which later I found out is not really that but the fact that Bob uses the same lager yeast for most of his beer). I was not really fond of the palate on this one. Should be lighter and more refreshing.
