Bottle. Straw gold body with a lasting half finger white head. Nose is almost nonexistent. There is a small hint of sweetness and malt, but it is almost undetectable. The taste is very mellow: notes of homey, hops, malt, and an almost orangey citrus note are there. The honey is there, but it is very much in the background. The finish is super clean with a very slight bitter bite. This is a very good mellow beer. Nothing surprising, challenging, or shocking.

I really never noticed anything honey about this ale, except in the scent when I first took off the cap. It is mellow and very smooth, but it is rather average and has no character. However, it is very drinkable on a hot summer night. Suttree (6466) - Knoxville, Tennessee, USA - JUN 20, 2004
Orange Copper colored, smallish white head. Honeyish, orange blossom aroma. Orange Marmalade flavorVery little bitterness, although a hint of piney hop at the finish. Surprisingly not bad. wilkie (1208) - Raleigh, North Carolina, USA - JUN 18, 2004
Bottle. Amber--gold in color, with medium off-white head. Lots of retention in head. Nose is malty with honey aroma. Nice smooth taste. Mild honey in flavor, tad bit of bitterness in the end. Fairly decent for a honey ale--not overdone. fuyajo (229) - Portland, Oregon, USA - JUN 16, 2004
Little head, pours to a honey color. Slightly sweet, honey smell. Smooth, clean; mildly hoppy flavor. Unremarkable.

medium head, deep gold with a touch of red color. slightly bitter in the aftertaste a bit odd for the concept of honey. Alcoholist (570) - Peoria, Illinois, USA - MAY 24, 2004
Hazy amber colour with a small head. Nose is moderately sweet with loads of wheat. Flavour is good, touch of honey, but with the same out-of-place bitterness found in their raspberry. YourDarkLord (1800) - Urbana, Illinois, USA - MAY 24, 2004
Disappointing. Great Divide has many good beers. This isn’t one of them. Hazy amber with small white head. Wheat nose with little if any honey to it. Moderate body and unimpressive mouthfeel. Flavor left much to be desired. Don’t waste your time. SubstanceT (1092) - Saint Louis, Missouri, USA - MAY 23, 2004
Cloudy orange in colour. the nose is wheaty with some other organic-ish hints. The taste and the nose do not have much honey to it at all. Kind of difficult to drink. Understand tho, I am not that big of a fan of the wheat flavour. Braudog (6781) - Yorktown, Virginia, USA - MAY 7, 2004
Visited the brewery in Denver and had a great time with Bernie, one of the brewers. Nothing like a great friendly brewery! This is a dark yellow beer that’s syrupy, with evident honey character. Very sweet with an underlying malt. Good, but not as good as their others.
