(12 oz bottle: Obtained in trade with hopdog, thanks Steve!) A grainy, very bready and somewhat sweet golden ale with a light bitterness in the finish. Maybe the sweetness is vaguely like honey, but though I’ll admit I’m not Winnie The Poo, it sure doesn’t resemble any kind of honey I’m aware of. The nose is also very bready and sweet. Light bodied, but with enough malt that it’s not quite what I’d consider thin and watery. Highly carbonated mouthfeel. Clear, pale straw color is getting darn close to "macro light". Lots of carbonation bubbles rise through the beer. Very small white head barely covers the beer after the pour, and fades away to nothing within minutes. Not horrible tasting, but if this were the best beer available at a bar, I’d pay for a glass of water. fmbrewing (12) - Dodgeville, Wisconsin, USA - APR 2, 2005
This is a great beer for a hot sunny day! My wife buys this beer for her and I all the time from Millers in Verona, WI. austinpowers (2828) - San Francisco, California, USA - FEB 13, 2005
Light-bodied beer that isn’t all that beery. Not much ale flavor. More lagerish, IMHO. Nice sweetish honey aroma. Enjoyable, easy drinkin’ session brew. Braudog (6716) - Yorktown, Virginia, USA - DEC 12, 2004
Golden yellow, but very still, like a mountain lake at morning ... white foam topping. Musty old nose. Very malty essence ... very little sign of any honey here. Just an average beer. DYCSoccer17 (3698) - Woodland, California, USA - NOV 15, 2004
Metallic, grassy aroma. Mild sweet hints. Kind of boring in the nose. Pale straw color thats transparent with a fizzy white head. Flavor is lacking. Very subdued mellow tones. I guess there are some hints of sweetness in the middle. Some light malts, but lacking any sort of hop kick. I prefer the Dundee’s to this.

Ultra-clear,pale honeyish hue, thick, fat fizzling white head, that zips down in nothing flat.
Nose is softly herbal, lightly sweet and honeyed, a little citric, leaning into sour. Not crazy about it, really.
Taste: too, too mild, bearing little in the flavor department, not even the advertised honey tastes. Very light bodied, short on texture, limp in the finish.
Even irritating...I can’t find much to like in this one. So sorry, I really held up hope, but it’s just not working out.
too, too blase’...cheers to anyone out there who digs this, but don’t count me among the crowd.
I really like the bee on the label, though. Pity there’s no close-up available here, he’s really a demented looking bug!

Honeycomb Coloring. Barely Head....BARELY worth wasting the word ’taste’ on this beer....I have to go purge now.... badgerben (5180) - Blaine, Minnesota, USA - JUN 18, 2004
"Hello? Hello taste?! Where are you?!" A borderline clear yellow with a little head. No real hops or malt and barely any honey taste. Not a winner. awaller05 (305) - Sharon, Wisconsin, USA - APR 18, 2004
On Tap: somewhat of a bummer as I was displeased with the watered down taste. No head and little to make me want another. jtw (1163) - farmington, Michigan, USA - APR 8, 2004
pale, straw color with a small frothy head. sweet chardonnay nose, some floral hops. very thin, slightly malty with a weak bitter finish. kind of a fake sweetness. not much to see here (or taste...)
