This beer was one of my first obscure microbrews. You can certainly taste the honey and the orange flavor. I dont know if it was slightly watery or not, but it certainly didnt have a heavy taste to it. I feel like I could have drank the whole six pack and not feel any different even though it was 5.5 ABV. Id recommend it, but Im not going to go out of my way to get it.

12oz Dose aus Florida. Danke an MBlessing! Trb gelbes Bier, fast ohne Schaum. Honig und Kruter Duft. Antrunk berraschend frisch und suerlich. Der Honig legt sich im Abgang lecker auf die Zunge. Je wrmer es wird desto mehr kommt der Honig heraus. Fr 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.

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.

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

tightslice (1187) - Redwood City, California, USA - MAY 14, 2016
Can from Whole Foods Market in Winter Park, FL. Aroma is honey and orange blossoms. Taste is sweet honey, some citrus qualities. No real Pilsener elements (other than the honey) but a weird Orlando staple. This would sell well at Trader Joes (along with the Toasted Coconut Porter)...a little bit novelty.

2015 BJCP Category: 31B Alternative Sugar Beer

AROMA: Mild nose of light grain and some honey. Slightly sweet, but otherwise odorless. 5/12

APPEARANCE: Beautiful orange color with crystal clarity. Effervescent when first poured, but goes flat quickly. Head fizzles away like a soda. No lacing. 1/3

FLAVOR: Does not seem like a pilsner at all. More of an amber ale. Missing the body of a lager. Honey flavor is evident, but tastes like cough syrup. No hop character. Palette is barely tolerable. 7/20

MOUTHFEEL: Not at all crisp as a pilsner should be. Completely tepid, slightly thick. Texture is at least smooth and finish is mostly clean. 2/5

OVERALL IMPRESSION: Tastes and drinks like an old can, but its actually quite fresh. This is nowhere close to a pilsner and completely lacking in character. Seems like failed homebrew, not a commercial product. 3/10

TOTAL SCORE: 18/50
