Light in color and body, this beer is brewed at both Pizza Port locations. A little heavier in alcohol than the Carlsbad Cream Ale, we use only the best California Honey to produce a subtle aroma and flavor in the finished product.

Draught at Haket, Gteborg, on July 16, 2016.
Pump clip states Pizza Port California Honey Blonde Ale.
Hazy amber color, white head with lacing. Sweet, honey, tomatoes, sirup scent. Goes to unpleasant, vibes of some barbage left out too long. Sweet, honey, fruity, a bit off taste, but better than the smell. Sweet aftertaste. Medium mouthfeel, low bitterness.

Pours golden color with medium creamy head. Aroma is hoppy with malt and slight hint of honey caramel. Taste is slightly hop bitter with faint taste of honey. Light carbonation. Finishes with a creamy sticky honey flavor. Almost similar to Belching Beaver Me So Honey ale. I was hoping the honey flavor would have stood out more in the taste. An ok beer I might drink it again.

very nice honey aroma, and a decent smoothness in the body...otherwise it would be a pretty thin boring beer. better than most honey ales out there...sure to appeal to macro fans and women :)

$4.5 16oz PP Carlsbad. Crowd pleasing in the extreme. Light bodied lager-like but filled out well with obvious fruit and honey.

February 3rd, 2012 - My second visit to Pizza Port in Solana Beach was my first try at their pizza. Wanting to pair intelligently, I ordered the California Honey Ale, thinking that a light, crisp and slightly sweet brew might wash down leftover crust perfectly. The logic behind my order was infallible. Leaning forward to take in the aroma, I found myself immediately transported to the gourmet pizza joint of my youth: Beau Joz pizzeria, where the signature style was to coat the great, knotted lumps of crust in honey. Pizza Ports California Honey Ale bundled up that experience into one smell, though likely assisted by the ambient aromas of the pizza pies flanking our table. By the time our own round spread of considerately arranged carbs and fats had arrived, I had already taken sips from the bubbly, boisterous, golden brew. The flavor is light, the body is light, and the palate is light. The beer almost deigns to tell you what it tastes like, but somewhere between whispered words I glean more of what the aroma so distinctive, except this time its a mouthful of honey baked bread. Light yeast notes and the sweetness of the honey mingle to produce an airy, almost vapid beer, but with a heart of gold, and a conservative twist of the honey comb. This would make a fine cap to a long day of tides smashing your body against the sand just down the way, but for my part, it was enough to take sips as I munched on the crust that fenced in Pizza Ports fabulous food.

Keg at CBC Clerkenwell, London during the Pizza Port tap takeover. Pours clear, rich gold with a fine, white cream head. Nose of bready malts, certainly some honey. Light to medium sweet flavor with dry honey, light tangerine, dry and lightly toasted white bread. Light to medium bodied with fine to average carbonation. Clean finish with dry bread, restrained honey character, light bitter straw. Nice beer, good balance.
