Brandman (2948) - Helsinki, FINLAND - JUL 5, 2010
Clear amber body, white head. Sweet aroma, perfume and some fruits. Bitter mouthfeel. Some nuts and fruits in flavour.

joe19612 (2925) - camberley, Surrey, ENGLAND - JUN 28, 2009
Bottle. A amber colour with a sweet aroma and just about a very small hint of honey. The taste is sweet with plenty of fruit, the finish is all citrus dry taste. Not sure if i liked this or not.

2.6
Mungo (2470) - Southampton, Hampshire, ENGLAND - FEB 20, 2005
Bottle. Fizzy with no head. Citric hops, malt and floral (Clematis) aromas. Could do with a touch more bitterness somewhat unsatisfying bottled. I could see several pints quaffed from the cask could be appreciably better.

2.8
Gethinbeer (2452) - Nova Scotia, CANADA - MAR 3, 2009
From bottle. Faint aroma. Slightly sweet but includes bitter malt. Nice clear orange colour. Thin white head. Smooth texture with the honey. Slick to the palette, with a faint citrus finish.

3.2
markas101 (2451) - Ann Arbor, Michigan, USA - MAY 22, 2010
50 cl bottle, Sheffield, UK. Deep golden orange colour, thin clinging head. Balanced sweet/spice aroma of honey and clove; quite carbonated with a forward citrus and pepper hoppiness. Finishes long with sweetness coming through again as it fights with the hops.

1.9
Spiesy (2338) - Sydney, Greater London, AUSTRALIA - JAN 6, 2005
Bottled. An unremarkable golden coloured body, slight to moderate light fizz head. Distant organic honey flavours have to be chased to all corners of the palate to get anything out of it. Strength farely represents the flavour.

2.8
CH-303 (2240) - Fribourg, SWITZERLAND - AUG 2, 2009
Appearance: Chestnut brown. Clear. Little bit of white head. Aroma: Sweet, honey. Malt. Taste: Honey, sweet. Nice malt. Some bitterness. Slightly watery. Info: 500ml bottle, 2/8-2009

undercurrent25 (2142) - Barnton, Cheshire, ENGLAND - JUN 24, 2011
Dry, slightly hoppy with a slight sweetness to it too, although this could be the honey

2.2
wyzzywyz22 (2108) - Wirral, Merseyside, ENGLAND - JUL 23, 2008
Bottle, LLH, Crosby. Amber yella, fading film like head. Cheap tesco value honey aroma and taste. Sickly sweet, lacking in chracter and body. Not great at all.

3.8
BeerBaboon (2093) - FINLAND - DEC 4, 2010
Golden colour, off white head. Aroma is fruit, honey and floral hoppiness. Even more honey in the flavour but unlike in many other honey beers, it is integrated very well here. Somewhat bitter and fruity. Suddenly there is a feeling of perfume in the mix. Rather floral alltogether. Bitterness lingers on afterwards. Average carbonation, full body.
