Bottle. Purchased at the Tap House in Norfolk, VA. Orange gold body with a small white head. Nose is honeyish with light hops and creamy malts. The honey seems "subdued". Taste is honey, sweet malts, and light bitter hops. Body is medium-light with moderate sweetness. Finishes with more honey, sweetened malts and light candyish notes.

egh. not what i entirely wanted. it looks wonderful, though. it feels pretty good--very carbonated. the honey isn’t really sticking with me, though. it’s okay. should be more sweet, and i would expect a more complex palate because honey just seems to attract a stickiness i would not only want to taste, but also feel. meh--oh well! overall, decent. slightly citrus--tart--with not enough of a bee sting ;o)

if it’s not retired, it should be. weird aroma with a hint of honey but also a foreshadowing of the awful flavor to follow. very sour, astringent. just no good.

This beer bored me to tears. Not really worth describing it because it was just plain boring. I’m glad to see its retired

Nice honey coloured body with an orange glow and a thinnish off-white head. Better looking than I had expected. Aroma of honey (no surprise), apricots, peaches, malt and some sugars. Light-bodied; Very vegetable taste with some sweetness and more malty unpleasantness. Aftertaste still kicks with alcohol and vegetables. Overall, a pretty bad beer (as I had expected), but still worth a try. I sampled this twelve ounce bottle purchased at Total Wine in McLean, Virginia on 19-December-2004.

Light golden ale with a light honey aroma, and cloves. Hoped up honey ale, cardboardy and oxidized. Medium bodied. (July 31 at Indiana Microbrewers Festival)

intresting. a very sweet light beer. THe honey was a nice touch, but really not much to build a beer off of. Lite and drinkable

UPDATED: AUG 2, 2006 I used to take an herbal chewabvle vitamin of bee pollin. It was slightly objectionable laced with a honey taste that kept it from being too retched. This beer tastes just like it. It simply is not good. It sounds like a good idea but perhaps a honey wheat beer would be better. The ale (which itself is crisp and thick) just does not merge with the honey formula. It feels as if it is at war with itself. Don’t get it and it is NOT retired.

hotstuff (5158) - Fort Wayne, Indiana, USA - DEC 5, 2004
Bottle. Medium white head, sparse lacing, no visible carbonation, transparent, and a golden orange hue. Aroma was malty, honey and sweet. Sweet, malty and honey flavoring. Smooth and somewhat thin mouthfeel. Easy to drink, but unimpressed with this one.

poured yellow with an ample head. smelled like a rancid hamburger and body oder. tasted like trash run off. I could hardlsy stand to drink it but some how finished. The worst beer I have ever tried. If it had been the first I would have stuck with tea. I’d honestly perfer Old English 8.0 to this. And I never tasted honey which I was under the impression was the point.
