Apiarius is not a sweet beer, though it is brewed with a generous charge of honey from our own hives (or from our neighbors when we run out). We achieve a a crisp, dry pale ale from sweet beginnings by fully fermenting all the sugars-this yields a satisfying but muted maltiness, a refreshing hop character, and a captivating honey-flower aroma and finish.

On-tap at The Gem and Keystone, Shawnee On Delaware, PA

A: The beer is clear yellow in color and has no visible carbonation. It poured with a thin, white head that gradually died down and left a patch of bubbles on the surface and a collar around the edge of the glass.
S: There are light to moderately strong aromas of floral hops and honey in the nose along with some notes of pale malts.
T: Like the smell, the taste has floral flavors from the hops, which impart a slight amount of bitterness. There are some hints of honey towards the finish.
M: It feels light- to medium-bodied on the palate and has a moderate amount of carbonation. There is a slight amount of dryness in the finish.
O: This beer makes a pale ale a lot more interesting due to the addition of honey, but the honey aromas and flavors are subtle so as not to detract from the drinkability. (862 characters)

Poured a clean pint of this from a growler I picked up last night.

A. Light straw body with little to no head visible and slight carbonation bubble rising to the top.

S. Smell like a nice light beer and a clean fresh yeast aroma and malts.

T. This is a rather bland beer but has a nice body and is very refreshing slight flowery palate and a clean finish.

M. LIght and smooth. It carries the "cold" to your tastebuds very well. I don't know if this would be very good if the temperature goes up.

Overall I would have one or two of these but would go for the shawnee porter anyday. (588 characters)

First had: on tap at Capone's, Norristown, PA

Poured a clear, golden yellow with a thin layer of bubbly white head that quickly receded to a ringlet. Aroma is pretty distant, toasted grains, floral, vegetal hop presence. Underwhelming on the palate as well, grainy, cardboard, floral and herbal hops with a moderate bitterness, and a dollop of honey in the finish that was nice but seemed almost misplaced considering the other factors of the beer overall. Mouthfeel is on the thin side, light-medium body, pretty crisp, with lower carbonation, aftertaste is dry and somewhat metallic. In a world of great APAs, this one just failed to impress. (645 characters)

This is a mellow brew made with honey from their own farm. Honey is there, but not overpoweringly so. Grain tones are there as well. Pretty easy to drink, though I could stand with a toned down grain character and a bit more honey. Nice way to start things off. (261 characters)
