"...the Honey Ale is truely one of the most interesting and unique craft beers available today." So reads the commercial description. What I had was a pale yellow beer with a frothy head that rapidly degenerated into a scummy coating. Nice lacing. But it smelled of canned corn with weak honey poured on. Tasted slightly better, a sweetened malt flavor with a light herbal hopping. Crisp finish. Done.

This blond ale pours a light yellow gold color. Small sized white foamy head. Aroma is fruity and sweet, with some honey. A light to medium bodied blonde ale. The malts are fruity and sweet, touch of honey that strengthens as the beer warms. The hops are slightly floral. Kind of your run of the mill blonde ale. Nice body and good carbonation. Is has not real flaws of note, its just not all that interesting to me. Mouthfeel is full. Finish is clean and smooth. Aftertaste is slightly sweet

Very clear medium gold body with a thin white head. The aroma is cheap apple juice with some honey and pears. The taste is definitely a dry honey, if that makes sense. The honey is there, but far from sweet. There is a hay like finish with a light body and low carbonation. It’s ok.

"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.

Pale watery appearance, fast dying head. Indistinct floral/honey aroma, not bad just weak. Flavor more like a pils than anything else I’d say, with slight honey overtones. Thin, weak body, boring finish, seemingly artificial carbonation. Not good.

12oz bottle-A little cloudy orange with a little white ring for a head. Aroma of malt and honey. Taste of honey, sweetness, and a dry finish. Decent tasting beer.

Pale yellow with thin white head. Aroma of sweet malts and very light honey. Taste of next to nothing but honey and sweet malted accented water. Thin, weak and bland, but I’m not a big fan of this style.

DYCSoccer17 (3697) - 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.

UPDATED: OCT 2, 2003 this tastes alot like leine's honey weiss, but with more flavor-an excellent beer for a hot day(but its cold up here in the midwest these days)

I remember when this first came out and won a Gold along with their Oatmeal Stout in GABF in Denver at the same time. I rated this and the review got lost. Anyway, this beer is nothing like what it used to be, which was clean, crisp, subtle and a true pleasure. Now, it’s soft, thin, overstated and totally forgettable. A pity.
