COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Cask; Regular.
We use pure honey from David Pearce honey farm situated a mile from the Brewery in Wiveliscombe. The honey is infused with the brew during fermentation to give a smooth creamy and chocolate palate offering a subtle bitter sweet finish. Brewed using Crystal and Chocolate malt with Goldings, Fuggles and Northdown hops.

SilkTork (5752) - Southampton, United Kingdom, Hampshire, ENGLAND - MAY 11, 2009
Oct, 2008 JDW, Gravesend Musty notes of fermented sugar rather than malt. A little bit like a kit home brew. I don’t value beers made with sugar or honey.

Hazy dark amber color, small head. Very light aroma, and light caramel flavor, very thin body, correct bitterness. Simple.

3.3
harrisoni (18800) - Ashford, Kent, ENGLAND - DEC 27, 2008
Cask handpull at Humphrey Bean JDW, Tonbridge. Mahogany colour with lasting beige head. Some malt sweetness on aroma, some choc. Not exactly full in mouth which lets it down a bit. I suppose there is some honey in there somewhere. An ok choccy honey beer which is just a little too watery in the mouth, but the flavours are overall good.

3.1
leaparsons (10598) - Wigston, Leicestershire, ENGLAND - DEC 22, 2008
Cask, The Lord Keeper of the Great Seal, Oadby. Dark red/brown with a thin head. Aromas are weetabix malts with kentish hops. Earthy, hoppy and dry with light vinous notes. Flavours are vinous, dry and woody with some grapefruit bitterness. Some sweetness but not getting much honey.

2.4
wheresthepath (2342) - Buckinghamshire, ENGLAND - DEC 20, 2008
[Cask at Back of Beyond, Reading] Deep golden with a slight white head. A pleasant but rather faint honey flavour up front fails to disguise a fairly average beer behind. Drinkable but forgettable.

3.9
dnas2 (705) - Cambridge, Cambridgeshire, ENGLAND - DEC 7, 2008
Cask handpump at the Tom Cobbley Tavern, Spreyton, Devon. Dark copper with a short head. Sweet nutty scent with some coffee. Quite sweet with a dry end. Nuts and biscuit malts and quite earthy. Some hops, not much honey in there, just enough to reduce the bitterness.

2.6
bobinlondon (1297) - Harrow, Greater London, ENGLAND - DEC 7, 2008
Handpulled cask at JDW Hatch End, Harrow. Surprisingly dark for a Honey flavoured beer. Some roasty notes, cramel and earthy hops along with just a touch of honey. Not too balanced IMO.

3.1
MesandSim (7117) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - DEC 1, 2008
<i>A Mes rate: Cask at Baker Street ’Sporks.</i>
Dark amber red with a bubbly but lasting beige head. Big fruity malt aroma with some faint sweet honey notes. Dusky sweet flavour from the honey along with some slight rubbery notes. Delicate bitterness in the finish with some late caramel. The honey is fairly subdued thankfully.
