A: Pours out a burnt gold color. Two fingers of off white head. Spotty lacing.

S: Bready notes, with a light orange and other fruity scents.

T: Very similar to the smell. The other fruit I'm picking up seems a bit like strawberry. Honey is very faint.

M: Medium body and medium carbonation.

O: I was really hoping for more honey in this one. The base beer isn't that great to begin with and the lack of the honey flavor was very disappointing.

3.14/5  rDev +3.3%

Poured from bottle into a pint glass
Appearance – Pours a hazy deep golden color with tiny carbonation bubbles seen streaming through the body of the brew. A small white head is present upon pouring which fades very fast to leave a tiny level of lace.

Smell- The aroma is of sweet honey and a bit of bready and biscuit malt. Mixed with these are some smell of a little bit of orange as well as some other light fruit flavors.

Taste – The taste is much drier and blander then would be expected from the nose but does contain a decent level of a sweet honey flavor and light bready flavor. Light fruit flavors come to the tongue more toward the middle of the taste, but remain rather faint. Overall these flavors take the taste to its end where a semi-dry and crisp malt and light fruit flavor is left to linger on the tongue.

Mouthfeel – The body of the beer is very light with a carbonation level that is rather average. Perfect for the style and it makes for one very easy drinking feel.

Overall- Nothing too exceptional here. Although it is a little subdued on taste it is very easy drinking and rather refreshing. A decent session style brew.

(Served in a bowtie glass)
A- This beer pours a crystal clear caramel colored hue with a sea of slow bubbles supporting a lumpy meringue of off-white heat that last a good bit.

S- The clean nose has hints of dried corn and some faint green papery hops with a cream note coming through the finish as it warms.

T- The dry slightly sulfur taste has some raw barley and corn notes in the finish with some dry mead taste growing as it opens and blending with a carbonic acid taste.

M- The light mouthfeel has a crisp fizz and no real alcohol heat to it.

O- This beer is light and clean but doesn’t really have any character to it and didn’t have much honey or malt flavors in there at all.

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.

2.79/5  rDev -8.2%

This brew pours a deep copper/orange with a tiny head which quickly dissipates. Very minimal lacing on the glass.

The smell is a hint of orange, wheat, grass, bread and sweet malts.

The taste is sweet with a pretzel like bread taste. There is a little orange in the flavor, sweet and roasted malts and sadly, very little honey.

The mouthfeel is somewhat bready and somewhat thin at the same time. There is a lot of carbonation amounting to too much fizz. There is also a dry feeling left in the mouth after swallowing.

Overall this beer is plain and fails to impress. In spite of the promise of honey given by the label, there is very little honey in the taste. The bready and sweet malts are not bad along with the pretzel and orange taste but I won't be drinking this brew again.
