3.5 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
UPDATED: DEC 3, 2015 Bottle. Absolutely brilliant honey-drenched nose. Pours a hazy gold -- might be chill haze. Taste is dry and crisp, but with an unmistakeable honey overtone; slight bitterness on the close. Finishes clean and crisp. Very, very nice.

2.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Not really as sweet or as honeyey as I was expecting...some hop character, balance was OK, alright but nothing special.

2.3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 6/20
Tasted from a 500 mL bottle purchased in Boulder, Colorado. Pours a golden yellow pale appearance. Honey golden lager aroma. Big honey flavor followed by a golden malty body. Pretty boring and not all that pleasing of body.

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottled. Poured clear, bright golden with a short cap of fizzy white head. The aroma picked up sweeter honey paired with a touch of floral character and a tiny touch of melon (though I may have imagined that based off of the name).. a little grassy bite on the back of the nose. The flavor found more honey along with nondescript pale malts at the core.. more honey extended outward along with lemon zest and straw bitterness.. came together decently, but it just isnít a great style. Light-ish bodied and a tad on the sweet side.. dried out, but not really in a good way (canít explain).. overall a decent drinker.

3.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Aroma is soft honey and malt. Appearance is a nice light orange gold, crystal clear. Small head but well carbonated. Taste is honey and light maltiness. A little tangy. Light hops bitterness balances well, but honey very present. Palate is light and crisp. Overall a very nice beer. Crisp refreshing and delicate.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
A beer with more complexity than I imagined, but not entirely tasty. Sweet honey aroma with a hint of underlying bitterness. The flavour is too sweet, grassy metallic hop flavour. Not great but decent.

3.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
This organic honey ale pours a nice golden colour with a white head. Decent retention and lacing. Very beautiful even tiny bubble carbonation that is slow, but all-over. The nose is very grainy with malt and has a mild touch of bees sweetness. Mid-syrupy and mid-watery mouthfeel... and very refreshing. The taste is not too bitter, but again, very grainy with cereal and a light touch of honey. Way different than the Floris Honey which was pure honey, this one is an awesome summer brew.

2.9 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Draught. Very sweet and pronounced honey flavor. Light malts and very low hopping. Fruity and sweet, with the honey ruling everything. Drinkable, but a bit too much.

Bottle. Poured clear golden color with an average off-white frothy head that mostly lasted with excellent lacing. Moderate honey and malt aroma. Medium body with a smooth texture and soft carbonation. Medium sweet flavor with a medium sweet finish of moderate duration. Good soft drinkable brew.
