Very smooth golden poor with decent head retention. The taste was smooth with a background of honey. The honey was not over powering but a fine back addition. Easily one of my favorite summer brews yet.

Poured a cloudy gold body with decent head that dies slow with some patches. Aroma has a sweet malt vibe to it more than minor yeast or wheat notes along with subtle spices. Smooth, light, easy, this beer has a sweetness to it not normally found in this style of beer (reminds of something sugary and bready like sugar coated pie crust). Not a bad beer but once you get past the sweetness there isn't much to it.

12 oz bottle was poured into a pint glass.

Appearance: A one finger head was poured that reduced to a thin layer. It is a yellow orange color with good clarity of bubbles coming up through the glass.

Smell: Honey, vanilla, green apple, herbal, pale, and bready malts.

Taste: It almost tastes like an apple puff pastry. Light and tasty with lots of flavor.

Mouthfeel : Light, crisp, refreshing, light bodied, a little chewy, and low to medium carbonation.

Overall: Very tasty for such a light beer. Great this humid New England weather.

I make no excuses for liking this beer. I have read reviews that claim it is too "this" or too "that" but the overall sum result is a beer that pleases me.

The name doesn't reflect the taste very well. In fact I had a hard time understanding why they chose the name.

The aroma of sweet wheat and honey pleases the nose right before the tantalizing subtleties and mild spiciness please the pallet.

Taking the beer for what it is as opposed to what it reads may leave you with a better opinion. I have tried to not like this beer but despite others criticizing it's character, (subtle) sweetness derived from honey and lack of wheaty-ness, but I keep coming back to it.

I would keep this malty standard on hand forever, but I fear that won't be possible.
Try this one, it's a great beer for the money. And if you don't like it... send the remainder to me!
