Bottle from Hobart Airport February 2014. A bit more substance to this beer than the previous ones from these guys. You actually get a bit of a alcohol kick in this beer. Danev76 (505) - AUSTRALIA - AUG 12, 2014
Light cidery aroma. Cloudy yellow white colour with poor head. Strong creamed honey flavour and a smooth finish. Medium to heavy body with medium to high carbonation. hawthorne00 (4113) - Melbourne, AUSTRALIA - APR 7, 2012
Bottle, as Strong Honey Ale. Clear gold, no head. Powerful honey aroma that’s somewhat medicinal with some lemon. Fairly light-bodied and quite carbonated. Tastes of good honey with a strong apparent sweetness that lingers for a while before drying out right at the end leaving light herbal notes. Very clean and dry, no hint of sweetness or alcohol. Dislodged the yeast stuck at the bottom of the bottle for the second half of the glass and it seemed slightly bready. Interesting drop with a classy finish.

Bottle - slightly hazey honey gold. Thin white head. Striong honey aroma and flavours. Slightly dry. Some alcohol showing. BeerChaser0078 (909) - Melbourne, AUSTRALIA - SEP 7, 2010
Bottle. Labeled Strong Honey Ale. Clear golden pour with a loose while head that doesn’t last long. Nose is very sweet and has notes of honey, caramel, butterscotch, grain and alcohol. Flavour is very similar but with a slight grassy taste in the background. Thin, watery mouthfeel with high carbonation and a sweet finish that doesn’t linger. Pretty unusual and not wholly successful. Maris (1586) - Canberra, AUSTRALIA - MAR 5, 2010
UPDATED: MAR 6, 2010 From a 330ml bottle on 6/3/2010. Note that the label on my bottle said ’Strong Honey Ale’ rather than ’Strong Mead Ale’, The label and alcohol content make me think it’s the same beer, but I may be wrong. Has a super cloudy appearance and a honey and citrus fruit aroma. The flavour is dominated by an abundance of sweet honey and a distinct and quite powerful lemony finish. The carbonation is over the top. All up, it’s a reasonably interesting beer, but not one that I’m aching to try again. bluevegie (3938) - Perth, AUSTRALIA - DEC 14, 2009
Tried this at the Tassie Beerfest 09, labeled just as Taverners Strong Ale. Clear pale yellowy gold body, short head. Honey in the aroma and don’t really notice the alcohol. Didn’t do much for me. BarossaLuke (552) - AUSTRALIA - OCT 6, 2009
Pours with no head. Has strong aroma of Tasmanian hone and pears. No surprise since this is made by a honey producer. The palate is light with bready and pear/green apples. there is a strong aftertaste of what to me seems like leatherwood honey. I can see why people find this strange, the flavours are a little confused.
