Quite a foam in the all glass. Light amber color. Lovely sudsy mouthful. Aroma is seriously honey, and quite appealing.

The honey flavor, since you're thinking about it, is quite evident. Moderately sweet. The honey does a good job of making this four percent beer taste like it has more body and substance. Perfumey and fresh. Light and refreshing. A winner in the Utah supermarket beer category.

This particular bottle is six months beyond its "best by" date, but it seems to be perfectly clean in flavor. Maybe honey does have anti-bacterial qualities. Certainly one of the best honey-flavored brews I've had. Maybe the lighter, lower-alcohol approach works best. From the 12 oz bottle purchased at Emigration Market in Salt Lake.

I have to be a little disappointed in this beer as Ive been very happy with nearly everything Uinta has done and I love honey. Problem was there was never any honey but for the color. The aroma was more grain and cereal malts, like a Pilsner. The taste followed suit with a dry grain and cereal malt with a bit of hops, but no honey or even sweetness. I looked to see if maybe the bottle was old but found it was actually quite fresh. This just came across as a less than noticeable Pilsner style lager.

A very enticing aroma invites you into this honig ale. Unfortunately -aside from the initial honey and malt flavors- it ends there. Hints of mint, light citrus, and obviously honey are predominant in the nose. In the palate, honey is again revisited, followed with a quick, light finish, with subtle hints of toast lingering in the after palate.
