Received this a few trades ago from Wasatch. 12oz bottle.

A: Light gold in color with a few copper tones, off white head that built up almost as fast as it disappeared, about a quarter or an inch reduced down to a few bubbles here and there. Excellent clarity. Not a bad looking beer.

S: Pale malts, and a bit of honey, not much else really. Pretty light in the nose, as I imagine it will be in the mouth as well.

T: Honey, and a little bit of grain, some banana like flavors in there as well. Pretty light in the flavor department. Lives up to the name as there is a definite honey note. Pretty fair.

M: A little thicker than I had expected, and lightly carbonated, finishes fairly dry. Okay, but nothing stellar.

D: Easy drinking beer, and definitely sessionable, while not the most flavorful beer it is definitely an easy one to drink. Pretty fair.

Thanks John!

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.

A-Pours amber. Head is minimal. Slight haze. Would have expected this beer to be brighter in color.

S-Smells like a lager infused with honey. It also smells like tea with honey. Sweet with underlying Lager yeast. Not detecting any hops.

T-Nothing truly offensive. Honey isn't really that stressed. Tastes fairly generic. Surprisingly bitter. Could be much worse.

M-Light and bubbly.

O/D-At $11 a six pack (although I only bought a single) this beer is overpriced. I am having trouble finding much to say about this beer.

A: Pours a relatively clear medium to dark honey apricot in color with light to moderate amounts of active visible carbonation rising slowly from the bottom of the glass and some copper + amber highlights. The beer has a quarter finger tall sudsy light beige head that reduces to a small thick patch of moderate sized bubbles surrounded by a medium to large mottled patch of very thin film and a thin ring at the edges of the glass. Moderate amounts of lacing are observed.

S: Light to moderate aromas of biscuit and grainy malts with moderate amounts of honey sweetness and light amounts of earthy hops.

T: Upfront there is a moderate flavor of biscuit and grainy malts with very light flavors of honey which contribute a light amount of sweetness. Light to moderate flavors of earthy hops with just a hint of citrus/orange hops. Light to moderate amounts of bitterness in the finish which fades pretty quickly.

M: Medium bodied with light to moderate amounts of carbonation. Crisp.

O: Easy to drink and refreshing but I was slightly disappointed that the honey flavors were so light when it was wonderfully present in the aroma.

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.

Best before 6/21/13.

Pours a slightly hazy orange with a foamy beige head that settles to wisps of film on top of the beer. Foamy streaks of lace form around the glass on the drink down. Smell is of malt and an earthy honey aroma. Taste is much the same with a citrus flavor on the finish. There is a 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 an average beer with a decent honey aroma but I am not getting any distinct honey flavors from this one.
