Tried to have a pint of this. Golden color with a moderate white head. Fizzy carbonation showing. Smell is ok, honey sweet with pale malts. Taste was just bad. Very, very sweet and weak in body. Cloying almost instantly. A tad skunky as well. I just really couldn't drink this beer. Almost tasted like it could be a malternative type offering.

Limp gold. The white froth dwindles rapidly.
Nose full of hollow grain sweetness, (and relying on suggestion) kissed by honey.
Marginally sweet up front. Devoid of maltiness, aside from a couple prickly grains. Honey seeps in and commandeers this wounded vessel. Hopping has jumped overboard already.
Light bodied, but thankfully not invisible.
This is a passable macro.

Clear golden color with a white bubbly head. Light aroma that focuses on the hops. Light, yet firm body with a pleasant crispness to it. Taste is slightly sweet from the honey and lightly hopped. Finishes pretty clean. This seems to be the Ale House's "safe" beer for those who don't care for some of the other on-site house brews. I've always wondered why people will order a Miller Lite, when they have this fresh on tap. I'd take this any day over a maco lite beer.

This beer was a very good change from the other Ale House beers. It had a light honey taste, that in my opinion was enhanced by adding lemon.
The beer itself was ordered by 3 individuals in my party and was stated to be very good with about any type of food.

This came out in the pint with a gold color and a little head - high carbonation though. I liked the smell of this brew which definitely has honey and is sweet with some pale ale undertones. Taste was so-so... I didn't care for the honey flavoring mixed with the pale ale hops. Almost like they were trying to combine two beers and it just didn't work.
