Bottle pours hazy golden with a medium sized foamy head. Minor lacing, minor carbonation. A very malty/yeasty aroma thats akin to mass produced beers, particularly budweiser. Taste isn't much better, light wheat/malt texture. Its as if someone crossed a semi-decent Hefe with a bud. No, this isnt working for me. Very thin, very little flavor on the finish. Sure would go back easy tho... Braudog (6900) - Yorktown, Virginia, USA - NOV 27, 2003
Peach-colored beer with virtually no activity and little head. The vaguest of yeast aromas, but the flavor has nothing that would lead you to the Hefeweizen label. It's malty and the same vague yeast as the aroma, but nothing to distinguish it very much from your other standard Miller beers. Reid (2673) - Salem, Oregon, USA - NOV 1, 2003
Ok another Henry,s product..yes I am getting rather short of funds!
Ok right away i spot a weird thing on the label it says in big letters "hefeweizen" then underneath in much smaller "honey brewed lager"...now what a dilemma..how should i judge this beer?
Ok the beer actually looks like a dark hefeweizen actually not to bad.
smell however seems to mix the styles there is some weheat but mostly lager hopping.
The taste is pretty average..not too bad..sweet on the front then gets a smallish bitterness at the back of the tongue..more lager like..the sweetness does seem to be honeyish.
Pretty drinkable but Im still confused as to what this beer wants to be..if it Stated Honey Lager..i would say it was pretty darn good for the style ( miles better than Michelobs version for example)..but as a hefe..its weak AlabastorJones (815) - Seattle, Washington, USA - OCT 26, 2003
wasn't expecting much, and didn't get much. Though the brew looked fogy and enticing, there was a serious lack of flavor. It has that carbonated water flavor that is remenescent of beast and budweiser. Nothing special here. xsketchyx (184) - Oregon, USA - OCT 24, 2003
An entire lemon-tree couldn't save this one. Just another Henry's.... not even as good as Widmer's Hefe.

Pours a thin fluffy head, extremely carbonated. Aroma is light. It seems like it is trying to hard to "look" like a Hefeweizen because it is really really cloudy. Flavor is light with a hint of lemon. Overall, pretty bland but easy to drink. Good for camping trips or a BBQ. mrkimchee (1414) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - SEP 19, 2003
hazy deep gold, white head. faint lemon and yeasty aroma. honey malt and lemon zest flavour but a little thin and dies out wat too quickly. Sham (1844) - Seattle, Washington, USA - SEP 5, 2003
Hazy gold. Fruit and wheat in the aroma. The same is found in the flavor. Simple wheat beer. Oakes (19416) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - SEP 4, 2003
UPDATED: APR 26, 2005 Dark tan, hazy. Pear, grape, wheat and gooseberry in the light aroma. Light, wheaty body. Some pear/apple notes. Slightly tart finish. microdyke (360) - Portland, Oregon, USA - AUG 29, 2003
A golden color with a white head and lots of carbonation. The aroma is mildly of wheat. The flavor has some lemon character and full of wheats. A slightly refreshing beer with an unpleasant domestic beer flavor.
