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.

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.

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.

ManVsBeer (10600) - Hebden Bridge, West Yorkshire, ENGLAND - JUN 14, 2015
Cask @Healey Hotel, Rochdale. Glowing copper bronze with a creamy head. The honey is light but gives it a lovely smoothness with pale malts complementing this.

3.2
downender (8687) - Bristol, Gloucestershire, ENGLAND - JUN 1, 2008
UPDATED: JAN 6, 2010 Cask-conditioned at the Bag O’Nails, Bristol 1/6/08. This was unusual for a honey infused beer in that it was dark - mahogany coloured with a slight reddish tinge. The aroma had some dusty chocolate powder, red fruit and a hint of honey. The flavour had plenty of chocolate malt with some Crunchie bar before a decent bitter finish. Very enjoyable [3.6]. Tried again at the Bag O’Nails, 3/1/10. Looked the same as before, but the honey was largely absent, leaving an indifferent brown bitter [2.8]
