750mL bottle served in pint glass. Beer pours as yellow as the label, very pale, and nearly clear of haze. Medium white head that falls quickly. Immediate aroma of honey, sweetness. Flavor is super crisp and easy to drink. All the flavors here are really subtle and well balanced, if on the sweet side overall. A little bit of German hoppage and a finish of honey on the lips. Carbonation is moderate and just right for the style. But very little in either the grain bill or the hop load to distract. This could be the world's most indulgent lawnmower beer.

Poured from a bottle a yellow hue with a foamy white head. I get lemon from the aroma, though I can’t quite tell if that’s it. Honey is very subtle in the flavor, with a honey consistency also coming off, to a slight extent, in the mouthfeel. Lemon again is the dominant flavor. The beer’s flavor is strongest in the middle, but somewhat weak at the beginning and end of he beer. There’s hardly any hops, and a touch of carbonation. Has a pleasant mouthfeel. Really, this is a pretty nice drinking beer that I wouldn’t mind having now and again.

A delicate twist to a classic style. Well balanced crisp and toasty notes, complemented with fruit flavors present in this alt-style beer pair beautifully with Rogue's own home-grown hops and honey. The dry notes and almost european-like flavors from the hops combine really well to make a great American example of classic German beer style.

A-Pours a somewhat hazy, yellow color. A slight hat of white bubbles. Head leaves bubbly lacing speckles.

S-Aroma is soft. Grainy and sweet with The slightest whiff of tartness. A fruity component. Mild yeastiness.

T-Flavor isn't as sweet and I was dreading. The honey is well set. I find it to have a minute tartness. It's a bit floral, a-la honeysuckle. Also grainy and yeasty. Then more sweetness sets in sneakily.

M-Pretty crisp. Has more body than most of the style.

O/D-Mayb the bright. Painted bottle threw me off at first. Once I tried it, I found it to be pretty agreeable. I have no huge qualms with this average-at-best beer except for its ridiculous pricetag. $12 for a subtle flavored, low ABV ale. Rip-off.

Pours a hazy yellow with a foamy off-white head that settles to wisps of film on top of the beer. Tiny dots of lace form around the glass on the drink down. Smell is of malt, grain, grass, and white grape juice aromas. Taste is much the same with white grape juice and honey flavors on the finish. There is a very mild amount of hop bitterness on the palate with each sip. This beer has a lower level of carbonation with a slightly crisp mouthfeel. Overall, this is a pretty good beer with a fruit forward presence in both the aroma and flavor that makes this one tasty and refreshing.
