Honey/golden color,with ever-so-slight haze, under a perfunctory head. Aroma is sweet, and herbal at once, vegetal, pretty mild to the point of blase’. Taste is mild, sweet, and ultimately lifeless. Enters the palate meekly, feels rather coated with honey at first, then dulls out, despite a persistent fruity feel. Very ordinary, when all is said and done. Not bad, but not much, either.

Shouldn’t a beer made with honey taste a little like honey? I don’t taste honey at all. In fact this one isn’t sweet at all. Strange. Overall it’s a decent drinkable beer. Probably not something that I’d spend $ on unless it was teh only non-domestic option.

Nexxus (261) - Apple Valley, Minnesota, USA - AUG 26, 2004
Hazy light amber with a medium frothy white head. Aroma of honey - lots of it, orange, lemon, toast, and flowers. Medium watery body with lively carbonation. Sweet flavor of honey, orange, toast, and a hint of grass. Very good for a honey ale, but still rather boring. Decent.

Bottle. Kinda cool looking pour for a chick beer; golden and a neat head. Smells like honey with a touch of skunkiness detectable. Something about this just doesn’t do it for me in the flavor; it tastes somewhat like babyfood and has an unpleasant fizzy characteristic that’s kind of hard to describe. Not nearly as good as some of GD’s other offerings.

wunderbier (1434) - Tampere, FINLAND - AUG 19, 2004
12 oz bottle, snifter. Bread and cookie malt (L); flowery hops (L); dough yeast (L); pineapple and honey aromas. Small, frothy, fizzy, white head is quickly diminishing and sits on a light orange body. Lightly sweet, lightly acidic flavor becomes a lightly sweet, lightly acidic, lightly bitter finish. Medium-light body, watery texture, average carbonation. The bottom line is: fairly plain, not any real faults, but nothing exciting.

sfontain (851) - Columbus, Ohio, USA - AUG 15, 2004
Pours medium golden color with no more head than a light, white ring around the top. Fairly sweet aroma with some citrus but not much there. Flavor is slightly better with some nice, very smooth maltiness, but practically no hops. There’s honey in this?? Mouthfeel is nice and clean but not too thin. Ho hum.

Darkover (1543) - Columbus, Ohio, USA - AUG 9, 2004
Dark golden color with a small white head. Aroma of sweet malt and some citrus. Flavor of sweet malt and honey. Crisp and refreshing.

2.5
Kevin (2201) - Montana, USA - AUG 8, 2004
bottle. dark yellow almost orange . thin evaporating head that runs scared very quickly upon being released from the bottle. sweet malt flavor that has a hint of the honey in this. finish is disappointing bitter turning to sour like an old man talking about how his life has gone wrong. bland aroma with a floral honey hint.

2.8
DocLock (11020) - Lower Pottsgrove, Pennsylvania, USA - AUG 2, 2004
Pours honey gold with medium white head. Aroma of malt, slight citrus, honey, cookie dough. Tastes slightly of honey, citrus, but has a somewhat sour aftertaste. Watery and light on the palate.

3.4
Wiseblood (700) - Clarksville, Tennessee, USA - AUG 2, 2004
Golden ale with a complex, citrus aroma. Light bodied and very crisp, with a strong lemon taste. The sweetness is very mild, but it lasts until the finish, which is very clean and dry.
