Very refreshing "hot weather" beer. Very subtle taste of honey with some citrus notes makes it really good. Not a complex beer, but still quite good.

Has to be one of the best honey beers I've had. Not strong, not sweet, nice and smooth. Great on a hot summer's day.

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.

This has aged well for about 4 years. Absolutely delicious cakey aroma. Good mouthfeel with distinct honey on the upper palate and oddly bitter finish. Sweet golden ale with a slightly floral aspect -- maybe it's just the notion of bees. I really liked this.

Bright gold with minimal head. Smells of honey and syrup. Very bitter, but rather good. Lots of honey scents and flavors.

Cloudy bright golden pour. Honeycomb yeast aroma. Flavor adds strawberry, lingonberry, and something more to flesh out a touch astringent yet sweet. Palate a bit watery, finishing clean with chamomile and clover honey nose. Sad to see that this is retired--I bought the last sixer at Zipps and I would have bought it again.

Golden color with n ohead. Aroma of very raw and dry honey, like long empty honeycombs. More of the same in the taste with a mustiness over it. I thought this was quite nice; a shame it’s retired.

See that 'commercial description' listed above? That's the most accurate one of those I've ever read. Nice sweet smell, and a light honey taste. Enjoyed it, and will look for it again.

Good head, nice tawny yellow color. Honey aroma apparent. Honey lightens the body while providing a good background of flavor.

3.5

Mostly diminishing head. Darker, honey-golden color. Mild carbonation. Honey aroma. Good drinkability due to honey content.
