3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
UPDATED: JAN 30, 2008 Draft. Nice, tasty ale; though my palate isn’t refined enough to detect honey taste. Nice amber color under a thin, lacy head. My pull had a surprisingly bitter/spicy hop bite countering the sweetness, I ’spect Todd is playing with his AAU levels lately. Still, a lip-smacking brew.
Grain bread malts, honey, caramel, molasses. Slightly hazy, dark gold. Light sweet. Citrus fruits, grain and bread malts, caramel, honey, soft carbonation. Very nice. Keg at brewery, Flossmore, IL. jfb (6270) - GERMANY - OCT 16, 2015
(bottle) hazy ruby-amber colour with a couple of tiny floaties and a frothy light-beige head. aroma of caramel and chestnut honey, heavily phenolic and leathery, with lots of vanilla and touch of cherry stones. flavour is mostly orange peel and pear, with some more caramel, clear honey, bubble gum and quite a bit of alcohol in the semi-tart finish. medium-bodied with lively carbonation. jredmond (8288) - New York, New York, USA - OCT 20, 2014

[Tap] Deep orange color without much head, but with nice looking lacing. Aroma of rye bread, honey and caramel malts. Tasting notes include honey malts, white pepper, mild resinous hops and dry grains. Average palate. Not bad. cubs (10636) - Fort Collins, Colorado, USA - MAY 23, 2014
Golden orange appearance with a tan head. Pretty spicy, floral herbal, honey, orange citrus aroma. Carbonation is a bit dull. Caramel, toasted, sweet nectar, honey flavor. Not all that bad but kind of one dimensional.

A lot of honey in this beer. A light body with a sweet flavor and good honey profile. Kind of interesting in that regard. jandd1983 (4330) - Wentzville, Missouri, USA - AUG 4, 2013
