look: 3.5 | smell: 3 | taste: 3 | feel: 2.5 | overall: 3

A - Pours a light brown with minimal head that fades quickly.

S - Sweet malt, raisins, fig, honey.

T - Honey, grain, oats, faint floral hops.

M - Light, somewhat watery.

O - Nice to try this as an extra in a trade. Honey taste is clearly there and a bit of rye as well. Would not seek this beer out but glad I got to try a beer that is not available in my area.

This brew pours out as a golden color brew that has a white head on it . The smell of the beer is sweet with just a touch of spice on the nose. The taste is mellow, the rye isn't overwhelming at all. I think I get more from the honey than I do the rye. The mouthfeel is medium and has a good drinkable quality to it. Worth trying.

Picked up a single at EuroMarket in Astoria. Poured a clear amber color with a tall head and lacing. Yes, this is a rye beer but it seems more like a spicy and lightly sweet variation on the American amber ale. The honey blends nicely with the caramel malts and the rye spice rounds out this beer. The body is a touch on the thick side for a great session beer, but otherwise it's a nice mellow rye ale.

Gotten as part of the Reddit December beer trade, 12oz bottle

Pours amber, minimal white head, doesn't linger long but a thin layer atop the beer sticks around.

Smells, malt/honey sweet, maybe a bit of caramel.

Taste is of low sweet, rye in the middle, essence of honey at the end.

MF is, literally, waterlike. Honey essence lingers for a bit, but that is all.

Kind of meh.

12oz bottle. Pours a translucent burnt orange color with a thin, frothy head. Decent amount of lacing. Sweet aroma of honey, malts and a small amount of hops. Taste is mostly of honey and some malts. Good amount of sweetness along with some hop bitterness to it. A bit on the thin side. Overall it is a pretty good beer and worth a second look but Lake Placid does have better offerings out there.

3.48/5  rDev -0.3%
look: 4 | smell: 3 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3 | overall: 4

A - Pours a nice golden-amber color with a nice layer of fizzy head that faded fairly quickly. Very little lacing left behind.

S - Very light smell of sweet hops. Just a touch of honey and hops mixed in also. Not very strong.

T - Starts off nice and sweet, with some honey flavor. The malt flavors become stronger in the middle, then begins to fade off a bit as the aftertaste is a bit more sweet, like honey. There is a little bitter flavor mixed in at some points.

M - Fairly light-bodied with medium carbonation. A bit dry on the tongue, but fairly crisp overall. Maybe a bit watery.

D - Very drinkable. The flavors are a bit simple, but overall work together. Could use maybe a bit more body.

Served in a Pint glass mug

A: Pours a clear bronze color with about an inch of thick head

S: A smell provides a nice rye scent with a very sweet undertone contributed by the honey addition

T: Very nice smooth tasting beer, has a slight hint of honey and perhaps a slight rye note but other than that there isnt much to comment on, smooth and slightly sweet but thats about it

M: Very smooth in the mouth with a slight bite on the tongue as it is drank

D: High level of drinkability, very subdued taste that is great for a hot summer day but leaves the drinking looking for more otherwise.

I really do enjoy this beer but there is not much at all to comment on as far as taste notes are concerned, nothing really jumps out on the pallet

3/5  rDev -14%
look: 3 | smell: 3 | taste: 3 | feel: 3 | overall: 3

A: A light autumn leaf orange color on the pour is topped off by a buff 1 finger foamy head that was short lived. Within lied a light and lazily rising carbonation. The lacing was soapy, thin and sparse as well weak on the hold.

S: Dried honey and essence of dried bread can be found on the opening nose but was very weak and hard to pick up on.

T: The honey really comes through upfront, sweet with some faint hints of dried rye and whole grain bread. In the middle lied a light greenery of stalky notes. The rye is consumed by the over use of the honey and its sweetness and could of easily be forgotten or ignored.

M: Some crispness at first, slippery texture, with a watered down honey consistency falling to a flat offering rather quickly.

D: A bit sweet and not one I would enjoy in multiples. An easy pass here and solid by definition of mediocrity.

Found at The Colgate Inn this brew shows a deep copper color, clear and quiet with a decent white fuzz on top and good lacing. The aroma brings a pleasant but mild malt grain and yeast with a nuance of deep honey noted. The flavor offers a fair hint of the advertised rye ingredient and a slightly spiced malt idea. It also carry's an odd musty quality like old standing water which seems to somehow emanate from the rye idea. It has a generally watery feel with a decent fine carbonation which helps atone a bit. The malt rye theme does seem to improve as you work through the pint. The honey element is subtle but I think it does help hold it together. This actually goes well with my meal, but by itself, the flavor is weak if not a bit off. It's pretty thin bodied and drinks pretty well depending on your ability to accept the taste here.

3.78/5  rDev +8.3%
look: 4 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 4 | overall: 4.5

Presentation: It was poured from a brown 12oz bottle into a pint glass. The back label has a nice description of the beer but there is no ABV% or a freshness date.

Appearance: The body has a rich golden honey color with good clarity. A nice tall beige head caps the beer and makes nice lacing as it slowly settles.

Smell: The aroma is quite light. I only pick up a slight malty sweetness with an even lighter hint of herbal hops.

Taste/Palate: There is defiantly some nice medium bodied bready malt which has some mild honey sweetness up front. Mellow herbal hops and light rye notes mix in well with the malt and light herbal bitterness late into the finish. Overall there is still some residual sweetness left in the finish.

Notes: This is a nice with pleasant malt sweetness and honey flavors. The rye character is a little light and could have had some more influence to the overall picture but I'm not really complaining as it is quite drinkable.

3.2/5  rDev -8.3%
look: 4 | smell: 3 | taste: 3 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.5

Appearance: gold in color, 1/3 inch head, clear, moderate carbonation

Smell: small rye and toasted malt

Taste: toasted caramel malt, some citrus, honey, and a bit of rye--especially on the end

Mouthfeel: light bodied, medium carbonation, sweet start that slowly becomes bitter

Drinkability: This one is above average, but nothing I would go out of my way for. The rye is subtle compared to the honey. There is a decent mix of bitter and sweet, but I wish the rye could have popped a bit more here.

pours amber in color about a half inch head that settles out quickly to a ring on the glass but leaves a good amount the lace. weak smell of honey but comes through and blends nicely with the rye malt which is fairly strong. mouthfeel is smooth and medium body. nice change of pace would buy it again.

look: 3.5 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.5

Starts with a mild head that lasts in a single-bubble fashion. Little lace save the occasional spot or two. The color is golden to light amber. Very clear.

Primary smell: Very dry aroma of the rye. The honey is very light. So much so, I wonder if I'm imagining it. No discernible hop or other aromas.

Surprisingly dry for a "honey" beer--definitely tips heavily to the rye side. The finish is quick and slightly astringent. There's a mild bitterness that lasts lightly as an aftertaste. Good body with an above average level of carbonation.
