deaconmike (470) - Roswell, Georgia, USA - JUL 23, 2013
Bottle. Clear gold with thin white head; no lacing. Aroma is yeast and funk. Taste is slight sweet, a bit of the honey comes through. Also a grainy corn taste. Body is light and well carbonated. Didn’t really enjoy this one.

DOC: 5/4/2017

2015 BJCP Category: 31B Alternative Sugar Beer (base style: 2B International Amber Lager)

AROMA: Sweet nose with a honey-like presence along with clean grainy malt. Slight floral component (unlikely from hops). 8/12

APPEARANCE: Slightly hazy shade of orange proper. Large white soapy suds dissipates quickly and completely. 2/3

FLAVOR: Contrary to the marketing, the palette is indeed sweet with a honey taste. Base malt is a bit generic; mostly amber/pale with faint caramel flavor. No specialty malt character; nor hop presence. Some brief residual sweetness in the aftertaste, otherwise clean. 12/20

MOUTHFEEL: Medium body with medium-low carbonation. Slightly crisp, but feels flat and undercarbonated for the style. Not refreshing, but easy to drink. Overweight at 5.5%. 3/5

OVERALL IMPRESSION: Most definitely not a pilsner, just a honey-flavored lager (which makes it interesting, but not good per se). 5/10

Can brought back to room I believe the final new brewery tick available at this resort making it far more successful visit in ratebeer terms than I could have dreamed. Nose is honey and floral. Tastes of honey, cereal, floral, light dried grass. Decent enough.

Draft at Yard House Orlando. Poured amber with white head. Honey malt wheat light hop and fruit. Decent

Gelbes leicht rüber bier flacher schaum, im geruch honig etwas blumig leichter hopfen, im Geschmack leicht hopfen kaum süß kräuterig blumiger honig Geschmack, wirklich mal eine schöne Variante von honig bier

12oz Dose aus Florida. Danke an MBlessing! Trüb gelbes Bier, fast ohne Schaum. Honig und Kräuter Duft. Antrunk überraschend frisch und säuerlich. Der Honig legt sich im Abgang lecker auf die Zunge. Je wärmer es wird desto mehr kommt der Honig heraus. Für mich kein Pils aber lecker!

This is straight up a pilsner with honey. I really enjoy it living in the state of Florida. Goes down easy with flavor. Surprised about the poor rating. light body, thin feel

Can. Clear golden yellow color, small white head. Lightly floral aroma with some fruity esters. Taste is floral fruity cereal. OK.

oldrtybastrd (5002) - Fort Walton Beach, Florida, USA - AUG 19, 2016
Pours a golden yellow color. Aromas of grass, cheerios, and some hops. Flavor is typical pilsner, not a lot of hops, a nice smooth taste. Nice and dry in the finish.

ghawener (1607) - Santa Tecla, EL SALVADOR - AUG 6, 2016
Can: Better than any local ’beer’, refreshing with a nice twist. Great Brew for Roatan.

Pretty average- honey definitely comes through as it warms up. Unique pils but once is enough. Honey pairs well with the crisp lager notes.
