Very easy to drink beer. A lovely amber colour, but definitely a lighter beer than I thought it would be. A nice smack of honey on the nose, but definitely more subtle to taste, though the honey is still there, with a spicy middle and finish. Carboantion quite high, which I did not expect, but makes it very refreshing on a summer day. I could drink a few of these, very nice.
Bottle from Archive Beer Boutique May 2013. Quite a decent Amber ale this one. Good colour and head, malty without being overly so. Slightly bitter sweet finish. Danev76 (505) - AUSTRALIA - MAR 12, 2014
Mild honey aroma. Cloudy amber golden colour with good head. Very smooth honey flavour with a dry finish. Medium body and carbonation

Pours dark amber with a massive head.
Nose shows honey with dry bark characters, soft spicy notes and a little bready malt.
Flavours instead focus of grainy malt and honey, with little else to pick things up. Some spicy hops.
Body feels a bit too light.
Could be a an ideal spring quaffer.

UPDATED: OCT 31, 2012 Tap at GABS. Reddish bronze with a beige head. Aroma of honey, nuts, flowers. Light-bodied, but the (interesting) honey fills it out - very pleasing texture. Taste is mildly sweet with honey, toast, nuts. Balancing bitterness with some spices. Good. [3.4]
Bottle. As above, but it’s a bit fizzy in the bottle and adds an unwelcome astringency. The honey’s the star here, but the dry and bitter finish sets it off nicely.
