2.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 8/20
Christmas bottle off Shimmer. Prost! Engaging German nostril of dense sappy shrub, varnished wood and caramel. Unexpectedly syrupy toothrot death flavour with the blossom and sap of the hops immersed in bee shit. Odin would be embarrassed to be seen drinking this. A pity.

Bouteille 50 cl - couleur ambrée rouge aspect qui ressemble peu à de la bière, odeur sucrée avec une grosse note de miel, goût sur le miel avec un fin sur un léger goût de châtaigne, très sucré, vraiment spéciale et écoeurante, je ne recommande pas

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
UPDATED: AUG 15, 2016
330 ml bottle bought at Hexapi (HK)’s booth at HKCEC in Wan Chai during HKTDC Food Expo 2016.
Clear amber colour; Less than one-quarter finger head and residual spapy white foam which fades in 10 seconds; Good sticky lacing with barely notable slight carbonation; Sweet aroma of amber malt, with strong honey, red fruit, very light cardboard, floral, sugar, light bread and faint grass; Medium sweet taste of light malt, with fairly strong honey, hint of dark fruits, floral, biscuits, light lemon, medium bitter hops and grass; Close to light body. Slightly slick palate; Mouth feel is like a light amber lager mixed with fair amount of honey – watery background with fair maltyness, honey is orange-blossom like, sweet but not overwhelming. Some light dark fruityess. Hoppy bitter with light lemon to round. Okay… Hoppiness is floral and faint grass in nose; Light lemon, floral and grass in taste; Bitterness is moderate for a lasting, mid astringent honey and bitter finish; Fairly dry after taste. Sweet and quite bitter to mouth.
Comments: For a honey beer, this one’s has fair amber maltyness while the honey is fairly strong in aroma and taste. Neither cloying or annoying, better than I expected and quite nice to have for this style!

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 11/20
Pours amber from the bottle and leaves a creamy white head that lingers and lingers. Aroma promises malt and, yes, honey, which is the defining ingredient for the brew - despite coming in at only 2.5% of the overall content. Taste is cloyingly sweet, with honey in the foreground, and everything else very much pushed to the back. No real bitterness here. Medium bodied, perfect carbonation level. Pleasant enough if you like an occassional beer on the sweet side. This is a beer guaranteed to polarize.

1.8 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 6/20
Haphazard Odin bottles 2010ish, mercifully forgotten over the years. Resurfaced 2016 as an alias 33cl bb09/2016 "Fürstlich Drehna Selection Honig Bier", a "Biodegradable Premium Luxury Biermischgetränk". Clearish amber pour. Dusty sweetness in aroma, Bloemenbier-sickly sweet with a stroopwafel edge over a Märzen malt. Cardboard honeysweet notes fade into a Märzen as if this has been blended 5sec prior to bottling. Slick palate. - Beer mix drink indeed - more than half down the drain. See Fuller’s Honey Dew for an actually drinkable Bio beer and Bloemenbier for an undrinkable one with more bite and yeast culture to it.

2.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
UPDATED: APR 29, 2016 Bottle. Pale brown-orange color, clear and with a medium rocky white head. Floral in the nose, light herbal, grain and some hints of sherry. Surprisingly not much honey here. Taste is very sweet, with a light bitter balance. Sweetness is ok, not overwhelming or sticky. Medium bodied with some thickness but still feels somewhat light. The honey is coming through in the mouth with a stronger honey and floral flavor. However still not very distinctive or complex. Aftertaste is light sweet and short. Solid.

Cervesa suau però massa dolça que la fa un pel empalagosa.
Cerveza suave pero demasiado dulce que la hace un poco empalagosa.

Bottle from bierpost.com Pours tawny brown with a mid sized off white head. Aroma is sweet, malt, dark fruit. Much too sweet. Opressive sweetness in finish. Drank half and rest had to go.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
A little bit different to your regular beer. Quite sweet honey notes, which dominate a bit too much. Reasonable effort though.
