3.2/5  rDev -8.6%
look: 3.5 | smell: 3.25 | taste: 3 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 3.25

Look: Pours with average, thick (small bubbles), white (yellow hue), reminds me on the more fizzy lagers. Good retention, leaves a fine, thick layer, that diminishes with time completely. Leaves very little lacing. Clear, golden with orange hue, lots of carbonation for an ale.

Smell: Hey, light citrus, grainy - reminds me of a dry pilsner with some floral, herbal honey notes and light sweetness. Honey part a bit rancid and with a hint of bitterness.

Taste: Watery start, light medium honey, grain, hay (some very, very light munich-like/caramel hides somewhere) malt middle. More light sweet honey comes out at the end, creates light bitterness with some sweetness that stay with you for a while. Bit metallic towards the end, also some mineral and floral notes stay, but less than in the smell.

Mouthfeel: Light-medium body, pleasant carbonation - lively enough to make the emptiness a bit less empty.

Overall: Basically a floral pilsner with a bit more body. Missing some taste at start, the honey incorporation is very light and subtle, kinda works, but could probably be a lot more.

Yet another honey beer... I don't really get them, it sounds like something that should be simple to make taste good - sweetness of honey versus the bitterness of hops, however I am yet to find one that doesn't taste like a lager with honey added as an afterthought. Brewers should be mixing a decent hoppy pale ale with honey, hopefully Fuller's can work some of their magic into this brew.

Poured from a 500ml bottle into a nonic pint.

A: Tis a pale ale, a lightish tinge of sunglow in yonder body glassed, white thee breath of angels lace upon thee head [here endith thine Shakespearian verse].

S: Malt and honey, honey and malt. Pretty uneventful actually... and hops? What hops? Yawn.

T: Probably the best honey beer I've tried, and that's not saying much. At least it's not a lager with honey added, it's an ale with honey added (they got one thing right). This has a grain malt with honey and there is little else to add.

M: Mid to light bodied with a slightly higher than usual carbonation for an English ale.

D: One-dimensional is a hyphenated word that gets bandied about with honey beers quite a lot, and with good reason, they don't have a great deal of character and this is due to demographics; the average drinker likes a lager that is thirst-slaking and boring, why? Because it is easy to drink. Craft beer lovers aren't the norm unfortunately and macro lagers are macro for a reason - loads of people like their beers to be inoffensive (to them at least) and as an alcohol delivery system in the cheapest way possible. That is where honey beers slot in and I am yet to find a honey beer with even the tiniest amount of hop flavour so for me they are a dud, sorry world. IHM (I Hate Macros).

Food match: Honey-roasted peanuts. Ingredients: Salt, artificial honey-roasting agents, pressed peanut sweepings, Mmmm... (Simpson's reference).

look: 3.5 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.25 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.5

Pours a one finger white bubbly head that disappears quickly. Golden and slightly cloudy body.

Sweet malty, slight citrus, and some fruity and honey notes in the aroma.

Big caramel malty notes on the tongue. Slight grainy adjunct-like taste as well. Subtle citrus and fruity taste. Very low hop bitterness. Leaves a dry slightly bitter aftertaste.

Body feels good, but maybe just a little bit on the watery side. Nice carbonation to suit the beer.

Not much honey, but it was a decent EPA.

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

500 ml bottle into pint glass, best before 4/6/2014. Pours slightly hazy bright golden color with a 1-2 finger fairly dense white head with solid retention, that reduces to a small cap that lingers. Light spotty lacing clings to the glass, with moderate streaming carbonation. Aromas of honey, bread, cracker, biscuit, pear, apple, floral, grass, herbal, and yeast earthiness. Nice and pleasant aromas with good balance of malt, honey, and fruity yeast ester notes; with solid strength. Taste of honey, bread, cracker, biscuit, pear, apple, herbal, floral, grass, light pepper, and yeast earthiness. No bitterness on the finish; with lingering notes of honey, bread, cracker, biscuit, pear, apple, herbal, floral, grass, and yeast earthiness on the finish for a short bit. Nice and pleasant flavors with balanced honey, bready malt, fruity yeast, and herbal hop flavors; with decent robustness and no cloying flavors after the finish. Medium carbonation and light-medium bodied; with a very smooth and crisp mouthfeel that is nice. Alcohol is very well hidden with minimal warming present after the finish. Overall this is a good English blonde ale. Good balance of honey, malt, yeast, and herbal hop flavors; and very smooth and crisp to drink. A pleasantly enjoyable offering.

2.11/5  rDev -39.7%
look: 3.5 | smell: 2 | taste: 1.75 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 2

Bottle: a fantastic solid brown embossed brown 500mL bottle with a stylish label. A nice package.

Appearance: pours a clean light amber in colour with a fluffy off-white head that settles to a thin cap. Limited lacing.

Aroma: an awkward combination of light grains and honey. Just smells like beer with honey poured into it.

Taste: I will admit that I have never met a honey beer that I like, and this seems like more of the same. An okay bitter hop and malt flavour behind, but the honey just doesn't seem to integrate into the other flavours at all.

Aftertaste: fortunately the honey flavour dissipates quickly, leaving only a touch of hop bitterness.

Mouth feel: the mouthfeel is crisp and clean, with a decent level of carbonation.

Overall: euch! I really don't understand honey beers. Most of them just taste like this one - a pretty ordinary beer that tastes like it has had warmed honey poured into it. Pretty awful stuff. At least this ordinary stuff would only be AU$130+ per equivalent case of 24 x 330mL bottles. Seriously, Fullers??

look: 3.5 | smell: 3.25 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 4 | overall: 4

I didn't expected this. The bottle was "only 14°C cold, but ups have learned that warmer temperatures will result into a much improved taste.

The remarkable feature of the beer is, that it is not that remarkable.
It smells mild malty with a floral tone...
The head is nice and white a coarser than I would like it.
The taste is rather mild... Less hoppy, medium maltiness. No "wrong " flavors at all!
The aftertaste is short and clean.

What is remarkable is the "drinkability" of this beer. It has the right strength is inoffensive, is almost refreshing... It just goes down as very few beers before.

I really like it... not as macho-proof but as everyday feel good beer!

look: 3.5 | smell: 2.75 | taste: 3 | feel: 3.25 | overall: 3

A - clear yellow pour, 1 1/2 finger of fizzy small bubbled head with slow dissipation leaving very nice lace , appears highly carbonated

S - pretty mild aroma, malty, straw, grassy, not much else going on here

T - i found this pretty laid back and kind of watery,malts, cereal,a bit grassy, you do get some sweet honey near the end with a wet finish

M - light bodied, refreshing and slightly creamy

O - I expected more from this one...it looked really good but let down on the smell and i found the flavor not really that interesting. It was a light and easy to drink beer with really no major flaws but overall this was just okay and nothing special. I would drink this again but i wouldn't really seek it out.

3.39/5  rDev -3.1%
look: 3.25 | smell: 3 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.5

Pours to a nice white thin head that stays around with no lacing. Color is a rich gold with some floaties. Aroma is fruity and sweet with apple, pear and white grapes and some grainy malt. Flavor is grainy, fruity and crisp. Not as sweet as nose would suggest but actually quite sharp and balanced, yet no distinct hop character of any kind. Weird. Mouthfeel is fizzy and cider-like. Overall, this is a decent quaff, although it is more like some of my nicer homebrewed blonde honey ales than any sort of EPA.

I wrote a very detailed review, but my connection timed out,
and the site didnt post it.
so, in light of that,

appearance.
gold. very little head. honey gold. nice color.

smell.
grainey. honey. a small malt.

taste.
smooth. with that typical fuller's drinkability. a bit sweet a bit sharp.
very good.

mouth.
nothing to speak of, a minor sharp start. levels to almost flat.
very drinkable.

overall.
if anything, the bottle promises more than it delivers,
it looks like a craft beer, by a large brewer, I had expected hops,
but there was very little of that, more just base, and flat, slightly
sweet and grainey, overall I'd say its better than any organic ive had.
but that isnt saying a whole lot.
i like a bit of meat of the bones.
so aside from being drinkable.
I wouldnt buy this regularly..
unless its for my vegan wife.
it might be good for a fishing trip..
a bit light and sweet..
reminds me of an adjuct with more grain and honey.

its basically honey nut cheerios.
as a beer.

Pretty much what you'd expect this to be. Sunny, yellow-golden in color, clear with a bit of a glow and wispy foam. The essence of honey more or less defines the aromas and flavors. Some toasty pale malt certainly factors in there as well, mostly in the aftertaste. A touch of light sweetness up front, though this all but disappears into a delicately bitter-floral, dry finish. Damn soft on the palate, quiet. All in all, not terribly complex, but delectable and drinkable for what it is. Probably would go well with a creamy flan or pudding.

Best before 4/6/14.

Pours a clear golden orange with a foamy beige head that settles to a partial film on top of the beer. Tiny dots of lace form around the glass on the drink down. Smell is of malt, grain, honey, and grassy aromas. Taste is much the same with grain and grassy flavors on the finish. There is a very mild amount of hop bitterness on the palate with each sip. This beer has a good level of carbonation with a crisp mouthfeel. Overall, this is a pretty good beer that is tasty and easy to drink.

On tap at a Fuller's pub near King's Cross.

A: beautiful fizzy yellow gold.

S: Nothing memorable, some citrus and hops, mostly just a generic "Beer" smell. This brew's weakest point.

T: Not as fruity as you'd think, some citrus and sweet cane sugar taste to start then a memorable smoky finish.

M: fizzy but not tingly, very smooth finish as it goes down the throat. So so drinkable.

O: Love the taste, love the look. Summertime in a glass as one Hammersmith bartender memorably told me.

Poured from the 50cl bottle into the Fuller's Organic Honeydew glass, which is a stemmed pint.

Beautiful honey color with a fluffy white head with medium retention.

I love the smell. There's a nice aley goodness with a touch of nice bees' honey, not artificial honey smell.

The taste follows the nose. A very simple ale with little alcohol or hops kick, and plenty of that nice honey flavor, but definitely not too much. Just a touch, and it's a good one.

This is one of my favorites. An excellent refreshing summer ale. Beer connoisseurs may think it's a little on the plain side, but it's exactly that that endears it to me.

Luckily, this ale is being widely promoted in Hong Kong, so there are many more places it can be found, and it's the least expensive Fuller's bottle available here.

Poured from a 16.9oz bottle into a US tumbler pint glass.

A: The beer is a light gold color with a large white head that fades slowly and leaves a thick on the glass.

S: The aroma contains honey, light caramelized malts and some hops.

T: The taste starts out sweet with flavors of honey and caramel. The malt character is hearty but not too heavy. The hops presence is mild but complementary and brings a decent. The after-taste is slightly sweet.

M: Crisp and a little smooth, medium body, medium carbonation, finish is slightly sticky.

O: Tasty, goes down easily, not too filling, mild kick, good representation of style, this is a solid beer to drink for a while but there are better beers in the style.

Tasted it on tap at Fuller’s. Pale yellow color, with a decent but swift head.
Very nice aroma of honey (ps. Need to taste the bottled version to check if loses this character), though initially was not sure if having something similar on taste would be nice. But it did feel great. You can still taste some honey sweetness but at an optimum level and matching perfectly with its malts and hops. Aftertaste is zesty and sweet.
Light body and light carbonation.
Well balanced and packed with refreshing hops. Excellent drinkability, I could be drinking this all day long.

Just past the Best By date of 11/2/12. Looking forward to a nice English Ale. Purchased Big Top - and you know what that means. Heh.
Pour fits perfectly into my SN tulip. Attractive yellow gold with full white and very fizzy head. Slightly cloudy.
That sort of flat English ale smell. Soft malt character with hint of sweetness, but also the kinda' vegatal aroma that sometimes can come from honey in beer. A bit of a watery quality to the aroma too.
Soft malt flavors with the most interesting leaving in fairly short order. A slight doughiness to the malt character. Little hints of sweetness up front. Hopping appears middle with flavor and then progresses smoothly into the bitterness. Reasonably dry finish and extends quite long after the party is gone.
Moderately light body with fine and prickly carbonation. Enough heft to give some smoothness.
An English drinking ale for certain. Has an easy drinking quality. I surprised it's 5% as it drinks and feels smaller than that. Richness and fullness of flavors start to open up as it warms. Not a knockout, but I'll never pass something from this brewery.

A 500ml bottle with a BB of Nov 2012. Brewed with organic ingredients - the label claims that this is the UK's most popular organic beer.

Poured into a straight pint glass. A golden-amber colour with faint haze and medium carbonation. Forms a large head of white foam that lasts for a few minutes before subsiding. Aroma of light malt, a hint of sweet, earthy honey and some very mild floral notes. Not too much going on.

Tastes of sweet, light malt with a hint of honey. Subtle notes of fruity ale yeast, faint caramel, mild honey and stewed hops. A slight floweriness in the background. Dry and slightly sugary. No bitterness to speak of. Mouthfeel is smooth, dry and tingly, with nicely judged carbonation. Aftertaste of faint malt/honey.

An OK honey beer, though nothing special. Quite light in aroma and flavour, though the honey comes through. Would probably be alright on a hot day, but frankly there's not enough going on to hold my attention. Worth trying but no need to seek it out.

Overall: another success from Fuller's - flavour is spot on, great mouthfeel - fantastic summer brew

Pours a clear, amber color. 1/3 inch head of a white color. Great retention and good lacing. Smells clearly of fresh honey, slight pale malt, sweet malt, and a hint of hops. Fits the style of an English Pale Ale. Mouth feel is smooth and clean, with a low carbonation level. Tastes of honey, pale malt, sweet malt, and a hint of hops. Overall, this is the first time I've ever discerned the distinct flavor of honey in a beer brewed with honey. That alone, would be enough for me to give this a high rating. Also, good appearance and feel.

look: 4 | smell: 4 | taste: 4 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4

appearance: Golden yellow honey like. White foam head, not much, lost quickly. Not much lacing.

smell: Sweet smell of honey and breadlike malts.

taste: You get the honey straight away. Not the sweet caramel like flavor, but the actual deep honey flavor, but not as sweet. Together with some bready malts, quite wheaty, and in the background some bittering hops to balance it out.

mouthfeel: Thin, refreshing, above average carbonation. No sirupy honey style, like you'd expect :)

overall: I must say. I wasn't that impressed with the first one, nor the second. But somehow this one grows on me. Especially when hot and very thirsty this is an insanely satisfying drink. If you want to sit down and enjoy a good complex beer, this is definitely not the one. But if you're thirsty and just want something refreshing this is a great beer.

S: nice and wheaty; on the other hand there was a touch of some unpleasant proteiny smell.

3.7/5  rDev +5.7%
look: 3.5 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4

500 mL bottle from the LCBO; best before Dec 9 2012. I bought this mostly because of my past experiences with Fuller's - I love their porter, ESB and London Pride, so I figured this one was well worth a chance. Served only slightly chilled.

Pours a clear, pale golden-yellow colour, topped with one finger of frothy, soapy white head. Retention isn't great - it's mostly gone within a minute or so, but it leaves behind a ring of lacing and a thin, even cap. The aroma is clean, subdued, and dominated by grainy malt sweetness, with some grassy, slightly herbal hoppiness rounding it out in the background.

The flavour doesn't stray far from the crisp, fresh themes detected on the nose. The flavour is of grainy pale malts backed by honey sweetness - persistent throughout the sip, but not enough to be cloying. This is largely due to the lovely hop backing - I could be wrong but they do seem a bit noble; their grassy, hay-like presence that lingers into the aftertaste would not at all be out of place in a pilsener. The flavour is a bit straightforward, but I really do love the way this stuff feels on the palate. It's definitely light-bodied, but it has a silky-smooth mouthfeel going down, no doubt thanks to the mild carbonation. This stuff is just absurdly easy to drink.

This is a bit of a strange creature; reminding me more of a pilsener crossed with one of those North American 'honey lagers' than a real EPA. Regardless of the details though, the fact remains that this is tasty stuff, and highly sessionable too.

Final Grade: 3.7, an acceptable B grade. Fuller's Organic Honeydew is probably the best organic beer I've ever tried, but that's really not saying much. In fact, to be a bit blunt I could just as easily have said that it's the weakest brew from Fuller's I have yet tried. That being said, it's still well above average, and it makes for an enjoyable pint. Worth a try I suppose, but in the future I'll probably just stick to London Pride.

Noticed this appears to be past the BB date. Picked up from LCBO.
Pours quite a large heard of white froth, leave little film but good lacing. Colour is golden yellow, with good carbonation.

Aroma is slightly sweet, good malt backing. Smell is quite crisp and maybe a touch citrus-ey. Very fragrant.

Taste is immediately of carbonation, then develops a really nice grainy and orange flavour. Malt is quite solid and the beer retains quite a refreshing profile. The finish is a bit chewy with toffee, dry, and slightly cloying.

Mouthfeel is smooth and medium bodied. Good amount of malt for this Pale Ale, remains refreshing.

This is quite a good representation, and is both drinkable and flavourful. Could be better on the finish and maybe a couple off notes (probably due to staleness), but worth a try if you see it.
