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. Pigfoot (2268) - Minneapolis, Minnesota, USA - OCT 12, 2004
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!

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. RAYBOY01 (2011) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - JUN 1, 2006
Insubstantial in every catagory. Inoffensive is about as strong a positive spin I can put on this brew. Light honey sweetness with touches of apples and pears. Some light grassiness. No hop profile as far as i can detect. phishpond417 (2088) - Madison, Wisconsin, USA - JUN 4, 2008
Pretty decent overall. It poured a bright golden body with a full white head that held a soft sweet aroma. It had a very pleasent honey taste, not overly sweet but definately firm with plenty of malts throughout the brew.

12oz. bottle. Pours a very pale yellow with a thin white head and loads of carbonation. Aroma is light and earthy, with an earthy yeast scent complemented by honey and citrusy hops. Body is light, with an earthy maltiness and some sweeter hops and honey flavors that don’t go anywhere in particular. Not bad, but really unremarkable.

On tap at the brewpub, pours clear with a decent head. A little honey in the nose, a little honey in the taste. Flavors did not increase even as the beer warmed. Better than the Golden Light, but still a sacrificialy light beer. bpreo (2836) - Eugene, Oregon, USA - APR 18, 2011
Nice to try another product from Grays, and also nice to get into a new Honey Ale after a long drought. polomagnifico (1202) - Saginaw, Michigan, USA - FEB 29, 2012
Bottle. Aroma has notes of honey, floral hops and cereal malts. Medium golden hue with a small mostly diminishing white head that left no lace. Flavor is medium sweet and lightly bitter. Palate is light bodied and watery average. Bleh. BVery (10500) - Plymouth, Minnesota, USA - MAR 12, 2012
Bottle. Mostly clear pale orange pour with a minimal white head. Aroma is cereal grain, grass, and maybe just a hint of sweetness. Lighter palate. Taste is not offensive - some grass and light hop - but not interesting or all that good either. Hot day on a boat? Sure, I suppose.
