COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Here’s the original honey beer. Crisp and refreshing, with a hint of sweetness. To craft the beer, we enlist the talents of several million local bees for their pure, white clover honey. Our brewmaster then blends the ambrosia with select, two-row barley malt and balances it with prized Willamette hops. While the bees reluctantly part with their honey, The Great American Beer Festival enthusiastically receives it, as they’ve awarded OHB a silver medal in a category with more than 60 blonde ales.

Ugh, when I saw the label, I thought that a honey beer would have a nice sweet flavor. I was sadly mistaken when I tried one. I didn’t taste anything that even resembled honey and worst of all, my friends were drinking a dirt cheap beer that I thought tasted better. I was not impressed.

A nice solid beer with only hints of honey in both aroma and taste. It brings a slight tart flavor but finishes well.

Bottle at Craig’s. Pours pale yellow with no head. Aromas of light honey, soap. Taste is thin, lemon, honey. Thin body. Sweet finish.

McNeillR (2315) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - SEP 5, 2014
Pale clear bright golden, bubbly sheeth. Faint lemon and thin malt. Soapy carbonation and a fading tinny bitterness. Sweetness is fairly diluted and generally a bit sickly.

On tap at the Portland Brewing brewpub. Pours a clear golden color with a medium white head. A light floral nose, meaty almost. Grainy, a bit of sweetness, frankly pretty dry and grainy, husks, a mellow body. OK.

2.3
maxwelldeux (4374) - Snohomish, Washington, USA - JUN 6, 2014
Bottle from the local Costco. Pours a clear dark golden color with a fairly thick white head on it. Nose isn’t all that appealing - I get just a light bit of sand and wheat to it, and little else. Tastes light and slightly sweet. Not bad, but nothing special.

This beer is absolutely delicious in the bottle, and even better if you can find it on draft. Very highly recommended.
