500ml bottle BB 10/17
Gold color with good head.
Grainy, dusty, sawdust aroma - no honey to speak of.
Mild bitterness with slight malt. Also soapy and quite sweet with a bland finish.
Not one of their better Brews.

3.5 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 11/20
Restrained aroma in a golden amber pour. A brew that manages to hit the middle of the bat in most respects - and is a refreshing brew because of it.

2.8 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 11/20
Honey aroma. Clean malt flavor with some mead-like character. Color is golden with no head. Semi-sweet finish and high carbonation. Not bad for an afternoon barbecue.

Although it looks uggly murky, this is a very nice beer, with honey in the aroma and flavour, plus hops - yes, floral - and a salty bitterness. Although everything is quite subtle, especially if served rather cold as I had it, crispy, it feels great for a session in an early summer evening. Quite a salty finish. Super cute beer.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
The head is good, the body golden. It smells honey-bitter, bit hoppy, fresh, malty. The taste is honey-aromatic, hoppy, maltaromatic. Bit more bitter in the aftertaste.
