Draft pint at the brewery. Reviewed to style.

Brassy gold, displaying high clarity with trails of carbonation visible. Lasting surface foam, ample coverage with drippy lace down the glass.

Distinct honey aroma, dry and not sweet, crackery malt, a trace of clover. They source the honey from Mt. Horeb apparently.

Crisp simple flavor, dry and crackery malt middle, honey traces in the periphery, though not sweet. Clean, fresh, and quenching. For a simple utilitarian style, this beer showcases honey, simple 2 row malt, and a clean yeast. Very refreshing and drinkable session beer, no one is reinventing the wheel here obviously. Simplicity is underrated.

The resort in the Dells where we are staying has the Honey Blonde on tap and it is a good beer. The beer poured a golden clear with thin white head that did not lace much. The scent carried faint citrus and some honey. The taste was a nicely balance beer with sweet honey zeal. The mouthfeel was lighter in body with smooth carbonaton. Overall this was a good beer and will have it again if possible.

Pours out a clear straw yellow color with two fingers of fizzly head that dies back to nothing in about 90 seconds with only minimal lacing left behind on the glass. Light body and medium-light carbonation levels...somewhat thin and watery for my taste.

Smells and tastes somewhat like a corn-fed malt liquor with a medium hit of cloying sweetness and skunky sulfur over honey and light breaded malts, but it does gain a touch of herbal and grassy garnish as it warms up. Unfortunately, the corn adjunct also amplifies as it warms up as well. I'd recommend passing on this one, there are many many many better offerings that fit the style of a honey blonde better than this does.

Produced a 1 finger white head. Dissipated quickly, and no lacing.
Aroma was of bread, and a light honey, and citrus smell.
Taste was similar, but the honey came through more. Not noticeable hop bitterness. Light-med mouth-feel, and medium carbonation.
Nice beer, easy drinking.
