look: 2.5 | smell: 3 | taste: 4 | feel: 4 | overall: 3.5

No dates on the bottle I picked up in a build your own six pack set up, so that might have some impact on this review. I poured this into a pint glass, and I was let down by the head, which almost instantly dissipated to nothing. The result is a beer that looks a lot like a cider. There's some visible carbonation in an otherwise crystal clear brew. The nose on this ale is very subtle, with malt and more subdued sweet corn notes the most identifiable. The taste is quite mellow, but pleasant: It has a smooth malt profile with just a hint of hop presence at the tail end. I'm really not getting much of the honey flavor, though it does have what seems like a slight corn sweetness. This one is somewhat similar to the taste and mouthfeel of a higher end adjunct lager. It's creamy, effervescent, and clean-finishing.

Overall, this is a tasty beer that doesn't try to do too much. It has a nice malt profile, and it would certainly go well with just about any food. I think it's a bit disappointing that the Wisconsin honey that was advertised doesn't make it's presence felt more. This would be a great beer to help introduce a BMC drinker to some of what the craft world can offer.

Tasted on draft at Sugar Maple. Pours clear pale orange with an average white head that leaves solid lace. Nose is very light, displaying some very simple malt and yeast with just a hint of honey. Flavor shows a little more honey, but is just as light and uninteresting. Body is light with average carbonation and not much finish to speak of.

Serving type: on-tap

found an '08 bottle in the cooler at a local shop.

a - ruby golden color. peach head that dies quickly

s - malts and yeast. honey smell is huge.

t - very clean flavor. I'm loving the honey in it.

m - on the bigger side of carbonation, which is more than welcome. light body.

overall - amazingly drinkable. Here is a beer that has a lot of flavor and still is very drinkable. I didn't have high expectations for this, but it blew me away.
