A - An aggressive pour displays a 1/2 inch white head that leaves pretty nice streaks of lacing. The body is an amber hued gold

S - Soapy grain, lager yeast, honey coated cereal.

T - Sweet cereal with honey edges. Reminds my of honey combs cereal. Sugary tea tannins as well as a touch of hops on the end. Finishes crisp and slick.

M - Light to medium bodied, good carbonation.

Honey is very present. Overall this is a really tasty brew, especially for the style. The finish could have been better though.

Best By: 06/01/13

Pours an orange hued golden with a foamy white head and light lacing.

Fairly subtle all around. But crisp, clean crackery, grain malt notes with faint sweetness from the honey and malts and a lightly floral character as well.

Medium body, mild foamy carbonation.

A well done blonde ale, good for warm weather. Easy drinking, with an enjoyable flavor profile.

3.5/5  rDev +15.1%

maybe a bit underrated on here. pours a deep golden honey color thats darker than expected. nose of sweet clover honey and crisp hops. flavor is similar to the nose, with the honey really popping out and the light malt profile keeping it around in the mouth for awhile. a bit of wheat in the flavor as well. feel is good, maybe a little bit flat, but very refreshing and drinkable. i has this in park city utah very shortly after a red rock honey wheat, and this one was exponentially better, with greater depth and feel. overall not an amazing beer, but a good outside drinking beer on a sunny spring day. would order this again if it was available in colorado, but i havnt seen this one around yet.

Pours close to two fingers of eggshell white microfoam, dissolves rapidly without much dimpling, leaves a thin coating of islands across the surface, curiously the thin lacing sticks in complete sheets down the glass sides and refuses to budge. The liquid is a light coppery orange color, very clear with loosely scattered if active tiny bubbles, very little change around the rims and glass bottom, maybe slight yellowing. The nose is salty and pretzel-like more than honeyed, wheat germ and cut grass, whisper of pressed flowers and orange rind, pinch of cocoa powder, the peach, apricot fruit silently nods when it meets your eye. Medium-bodied, for as dry as it is the carbonation gives it a soft and fluffy mouth feel. The honey a notch higher here, no more, sweetens the lemon to orange citrus and bolsters the yellow apple, peach, apricot fruit, at least through the mid-palate. More wheat and unprocessed grains than green hoppiness. Retains that element of salt with some white pepper too. Balanced with no one part sticking out above the rest, not going to break any new territory but super easy to throw back.

Pours a two finger white head that fades quickly to a ring leaving some lace. Nearly clear amber color. Light carbonation and light-medium bodied. Honey and citric nose, flavor is light honey and malt with light hops at finish. $2.39 for a 12oz bottle from Julio's Liquors Westborough, MA. Best by 6/1/2013.

Poured from a 12oz bottle into a duvel glass.

A: pours a slightly hazy coppery golden/orange with about of finger of white head that does down quick.... Some nice lacing.... Appearance kinda reminds me of honey.

S: I get a lot of dry, doughy bready yeastyness, Grains? And a hint of sweetness. A very mild nose overall.

T: grain, oats, breadiness, a touch of honey on the end, I get a bit of floralness in there too with the organic wild flower honey.

M: medium body with medium sharp carbonation, deffinatly leavs a dryness in the mouth, very light finish, almost pushing watery.

O: this isn't a bad beer, but it's not great either, I wish the honey was kicked up a few notches and that the bready Malts took more of a backseat.... The base beer here is a blonde, btw, like I said not a bad beer but overall I felt it could of been better.
Now that I look back I see this is a 4 percent session beer, I'm not a big session beer guy,
That's probably why I didn't like this so much.... But I suppose for a session beer it's not bad.

got a six pack of bottles from a local liquor shop and pour one out into a pint glass

a nice lite slightly murky copper orange color with very little carbonation and a thin white foam head that leaves nice lace.

a rather mild aroma with a bit of grains some malt sweetness and honey .

the taste is creamy malt and honey with a touch of some matallic flavor .

medium body and creamy feel on the palette ,it coats your mouth with the mild sweet taste of ,of course honey.

an fairly easy to drink honey lager.honey lagers are a good style and this ones not a bad one to get if you can.cheers..

Bright golden body. Lace white head that fizzles out to a patchy covering with moderate lacing.

Vanilla, cream soda and honey aromas. Earthy and leafy hops on the nose.

Vanilla bean and honey, with some cream soda sweetness, much like the nose. Biscuity malt backbone. Earthy hops on the finish, giving a slight bitterness to the body.

Not much complexity, but very refreshing, especially on a hot day like today. The low ABV makes this a perfect choice to bring to the beach or a BBQ.

3.28/5  rDev +7.9%

12oz bottle poured into a Bruery tulip.

A - Pours a thin and watery looking pale amber color. A thin cap of foam lingers briefly and drops to a soda-ish fizzy collar of bubbles.

S - A touch sweet, honey touches. Very grainy, yeasty bread dough like aromas. Hops are secondary here...no real presence in the aroma.

T - Soft, honey sweetness, grainy and bready as in the aroma...really gives me the impression of liquid bread. Hop flavor is barely there...what is there is a touch on the fruity side with a very mild bitterness.

M - Smooth but tingly all over the tongue with a light intensity carbonation in combination with the thinnish body. Very soft feeling.

D - Can't say that this one is anything special or worth writing home about, but it is infinitely drinkable. This goes down easier than water and could be had all day long. A summer lawn mower beer if there ever was one.
