On tap at JH. I was rather scared of this beer when I saw its name on the beer menu, but it turned out better than I had expected! Pours a clear golden yellow with a small white head. Aroma of sweet honey and sweet malt. Flavor is very sweet initially with a less sweet, wheat finish. Normally I don't like honey beers, but this was very well balanced and not TOO sweet. Very drinkable too. Nice beer.

This beer pours a light copper color, a touch cloudy, with a one finger head. Head recedes relatively quickly leaving wispy lacing along the glass. Nose is pale malts, a touch of spice to it and an ample but not overpowering honey scent. Taste is sweet honey upfront, biscuity and pale malts mingled in the middle, finish is a mixture of grassy hops and corriander. Medium body, medium carbonation, sweet, crisp, clean feel to this beer. Goes down easily, not a beer that will make you stop and say "wow" however, it is highly drinkable.

Poured a light copper hue with a one finger foamy white head. There was good retention and lacing.

The smell featured a soft malt with a subtle floral hop and sweet honey.

The taste consisted of an upfront sweet honey that lingered throughout. The grassy hop balanced the soft, biscuity malt, while allowing the earthy honey sweetness to remain.

The mouthfeel was full and creamy.

Overall a tasty ale made with local Long Island honey.
