A golden ale with a thin white head. In aroma, light spiced malts, like an herbaceous Denis Nectar. In mouth, a sweetish malt with ginger, apples, a bit boring. Tasted Dec. 18 2010. Thanks Dany.

Growler. Merci Dany ! Armes de miel et de fleurs, lgre touche de levure fruite. Robe dore et limpide, lgre dentelle et effervescence moyenne. En bouche, on retrouve une trs forte signature mielleuse et florale et une note fruite rappelant les abricots (la levure ?) La bire est particulirement sucre. Finale prsentant une lgre amertume. Lalcool est relativement apparent. Une exprience originale, mais pas particulirement concluante.

From a growler. Pours a almost syrupy golden straw, clear. White diminishing head, good skim and lacing. Aroma is very floral and sweet. The honey is very obvious. Flavor emphasizes the honey...lots of floral, some vanilla, some grass/straw. No bitterness. Finishes sweet. Syrupy on the tongue, carbonation makes it bearable. Alcohol is well hidden. Too sweet for my taste. If it were me, I would have added a good blast of bittering hops to back up the sweetness and flavors delivered by the honey. A decent beer, but I am very glad that I had many people to drink this growler with...one small glass was enough for me.

On tap at the brewpub. Poured a clear yellow gold with a white head that dissipated to the edges and laced slight. Aroma had a combination of sweet grains, caramel and honey with a bit of underlying caramel. Flavor started with sweet grain, slight hay and growing honey that led to quite a sweet finish.

arminjewell (9567) - East Lansing, Michigan, USA - NOV 30, 2010
Pours clear golden with thin white head. Aroma is big complex honey, with notes of spices, oak, and vanilla. Taste is big honey up front, with definitely notes of there being many different floral/fruity types of honey. Sweet vanilla middle leads to a bitter spice and oak, with a slightly sweet finish. Nice brew, not too sweet, but complex and layered. Almost like a mix between mead and beer, no sign of alcohol.

kbutler1 (1378) - North Carolina, USA - NOV 12, 2010
UPDATED: NOV 13, 2010 Draft. On tap at Town Hall Tap. 12oz pour. Pours a light honey colored with a nice white 1 finger head. Very clear. Very clean aroma with only hints of light roast grain and sweetness from the honey. The taste is pretty sweet by not overly so with a nice balance of honey flavor and almost a very clean white grape almost like an ice wine. Medium/light mouhfeel. Nice lace on the glass. Overall, pretty sweet but not too sweet and the alcohol is pretty subtle.

On tap during the tour. Clear yellow in color with a small white head. Light aroma of grassy hops and sugary. Sweet vanilla, honey, and spicy. Prickly mouthfeel. Delicious.

badgerben (5045) - Blaine, Minnesota, USA - OCT 27, 2008
Hazy gold color with no head. A little wheat in the aroma and some lemongrass. Honey is by far the dominating flavor, almost to the point of it tasting like a mead. Solid lemon grass as well. A little straw and a floral hop finish.

Aroma was sweet and distinctly honey with enough alcohol coming through to let you know this was potent,taste came through almost as a mead,sweet nad smooth,pretty much a one trick pony but a nice desert brew to end our meal

Pour is a hazy yellow with a large white head. Aroma is sweet and sugar with some added spice. Flavor is super heavy with a sweeness that does not overpower like you think it would but is just kind of there. After the swallow it leaves a nice spice on the tounge. This was quite tasty and usually i’m not a fan of beer with honey. This was almost like a mead.
