sm89walt (2082) - Sydney, AUSTRALIA - NOV 18, 2012
Cask - The Lawyer, Norwich. A clear golden yellow colour with a creamy, one-finger, lacing white head with fair retention. It’s a crisp, citrus-forward golden with some apple on the nose and a delicate sweetness running throughout (though I wouldn’t have said this was was due to added honey). Light to medium body, softish mouthfeel, lingering, medium intensity hoppy finish. Refreshing & quaffable.

joe19612 (3101) - camberley, Surrey, ENGLAND - NOV 11, 2012
Bottle from Sainsburys. Pours a cloudy gold colour with a thin white head, plenty of fruit and a hint of honey, taste is bitter with citrus fruit and then has a dry finish,

berkshirejohn (6687) - Bracknell, Berkshire, ENGLAND - OCT 13, 2012
50cl bottle from the Sainsbury’s beer hunt range. Pale straw with a fast fading white head; slightly musty honey aroma; clean refreshing flavour - some citrus, and a grainy body; and a crisp bitterness to finish with a touch of sweetness from the honey. Rather good.

PieMan70 (25) - - OCT 12, 2012
Clear golden ale. Not much of an aroma, very much lacking in distinct flavour. Slightly sharp but really fairly undistinguishable

3.3
imdownthepub (15395) - Banbury, Oxfordshire, ENGLAND - OCT 11, 2012
Bottled, 500ml from Sainsburys, Banbury. Gold with white head. Light, slightly sweetish beer, there is a honeyed, malty body leading to a fruity, strawberry finish. A touch of bitterness in the close, just could do with more body.

3.4
Leighton (22550) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - OCT 7, 2012
Bottle at home in London. Pours perfectly clear yellow with a mild, white foam head. Aroma holds some floral hops, doughy malts, light cabbage. Medium sweet flavor, doughy malts, white bread, white sugar, mellow straw, some light herbal bitterness. Light bodied with average carbonation. Fairly sweet to finish, light metallic zing, some further white bread malts. There’s a sugary edge in here; perhaps that’s the honey. There’s also an almost respectable hop bite of dry hay that lingers. An OK beer overall.

3.2
dynamiteninja (1895) - Norfolk, ENGLAND - OCT 5, 2012
Bottle. Light gold body with a thin bubbly white head that quickly dissipates. Citrus, lemon aroma. Bitter. Dry finish. Didn’t detect the honey (a good thing), but it maybe added to the texture.

Nilz (523) - Glasgow, SCOTLAND - OCT 4, 2012
Bottle pours a clear yellow ale with a slim head. Aroma is hoppy, light floweriness. Taste is a pleasant balance of light hops and bitterness in the finish. A straightforward light ale, session ale if you will; a quite acceptable refreshing ale I thought..

2.6
rauchbier (3940) - Isle Of Beer, Lincolnshire, ENGLAND - OCT 4, 2012
Bottle, from Sainsburys Scunthorpe. Gold, thin but lasting white head and moderate condition. Gentle fruit and yeast in the nose, quite bitter in the mouth with hops dominating a muted fruity bubblegum yeastiness, finish is moderately dry and a mixture of hop and yeast bitterness.

3.2
tommann (3974) - Dudley, West Midlands, ENGLAND - OCT 3, 2012
500ml bottle. Pours light gold with a medium head. Aroma is sweet honey and straw. Taste has light straw and biscuit. Quite drinkable.
