22 ounce bottle - $8.99 at Total Wine & More in Kennesaw, Georgia.
Appearance: Pours a lightly hazed, light yellow body with a moderate-sized, white, finely-textured head. Thin sheet of lace on the way down.
Smell: Pilsner malts, a little soft wheat detected, with a sweet-scented honeyish note throughout. Sliver of Granny Smith, a bit of waxed lips there, too.
Taste: Light pale malts, pilsner malts. A little touch of wheat. A bit of green apple precludes the honeyesque sweetness. Floral, moist herb hops. Low bitterness. A last hint of honey, waxed lips, apple, and now white wine on the drying, lightly yeasty finish.
Mouthfeel: Medium-light body. Medium carbonation.
Overall: Well, if nothing else, it's a far, far better use of honey than that downright deplorable 19 Original Colonies Mead.
Serving type: bottle

Served on tap in a pint glass
Appearance – The beer is served a clear yellow-amber color with a one finger head of pure white foam. The head fades very fast leaving only a trace of lace on the sides of the glass.
Smell – The aroma of the brew is very light overall with just some biscuit and a little bit of a honey smell as well as hints of floral and grassy hops. Very light, but non-offensive overall.
Taste - The taste begins with a crisp bready flavor mixed with a little bit of a grainy flavor. While no honey is present upfront, as the taste moves on a honey flavor begins developing on the tongue with it gaining intensity more toward the end. Some very light floral flavors develop at the very end leaving a rather crisp and lightly bready flavor on the tongue.
Mouthfeel – The body of the beer is quite thin with a carbonation level that is on the higher side. Both are quite nice for the mix of honey and light grain, making for a crisp and more refreshing feel.
Overall – A rather refreshing brew overall with a nice easy drinking feel. It is nice for the price while on tap ( in comparison to other tap prices) but if going for the big bottle it is likely not worth the high price tag.
Serving type: on-tap
