Very sweet. Not terribly dissimilar from an adjunct lager in flavor. Not for me.

Appearance - Pours slightly hazy and purely golden in color with an off-white, near two finger width head. Fair retention, dissipating to a thin, velvety looking froth that spans the surface. Not much for lace, save a couple of streaks and a spot here and there.

Smell - Wheat and honey, with a faint lemon-like citrus note.

Taste - Follows the nose. Mild honey, with a very clean wheat flavor. A faint note of mild lemon and floral hop character adds a touch of brightness and depth. Clean, simple and harmonious finish.

Mouthfeel - Light to medium in body with moderate carbonation. Slightly crisp with a semi-dry finish.

Overall - I'm not always a fan of lighter flavored beers, but this one has a flavor profile that speaks to my palate. Nice, simple and clean notes of wheat and honey that meld together well, then that touch of lemon and floral hop adds a nice finishing touch. It would make a beautiful beer for warmer weather, but even in the depths of winter it's a nice alternative to the heavier stuff.

Sweet without being too cloying for a honey beer. Nothing about this beer is really bad, I just felt that the honey, wheat, and yeast flavors could have synced up a bit better.

Slightly clouded amber with a tiny white colored head.

Smells of honey and Tea.

Starts out tasting of honey and crackers. Toasted grain and tea flavors.

Mouthfeel is average.

Overall pretty Blah beer.

Notes taken on 08/30/14

A: Golden honey blonde color. Imagine that. Great conditioning results in a nice clear body. Topped with some playful cotton white fluff that bounces about until finally settling out to a few chunky swirls. Lots of sticky lace touching the glass after every sip.

S: Smells of bready malts with a light graininess to it. More doughy and pie crust like with a definite honey nectar sweetness coming through. There is dash of grassy hops noted as well. Nicely present with the honey.

T: Golden malts with some mild graininess, floral honey, and a dash of earthy hops. Softly toasted with a lower perceived bitterness. Comes together much like honey graham cracker. On the sweeter side while remaining dry and light in the finish. A nice little creamy session here.

M: Very light in body with a creamy texture and mild amount of actual bitterness. Finishes dry, crisp, and fairly clean overall.

D: Good but not great. Not big on wheat beers in general but the fresh honey flavor is a nice touch. A tad more sweet than I would prefer although the drying finish saves it. Really not that bad at all.
