The aroma is light but pleasant with lemon-lime and a hint of caramel-like sweetness. The mostly clear body is amber; the foamy head is somewhat rocky and lasts for the duration. The flavor is moderately fruity (cantaloupe?) and floral with soft, bready malt and very little bitterness. Nutty, toasty malt lingers in the finish. The carbonation is soft and fizzy with a moderate bite.

Very nice—tasty and super drinkable, almost to a fault.

Sweet but not too much, full-body taste for a light beer

1st bottle using a pint glass :

Look : Clear amber, thin coating. Nothing special.

Smell : Very delicate with subtle sweetness.

Taste : Round and smooth, light smoky caramel.

Feel : Zesty and rich. Flavorful after taste almost numbing the tongue (in a positive way)

Overall : Enjoying the tender taste and unique feel.

- some honey in the smell, but nothing like St John's Honey Porter
- sweet but thin, relatively mild and plain tasting

Pale straw shoer lived one finger head.
Honey on nose from opening bottle, but also balanced out with, erm, metal....
Oooops!! Quick check shows 'fresh stock' in at bottle-o is already out of date.
Low carbonation is a treat for the style.
Never mind,a well made EPA with the honey adder.

Appearance: Golden in colour with a small head which shrinks in a few minutes.
Aroma: Lightly roasted barley, cooked apple and a light honey scent which feels fresh in the nostrils.
Taste: Medium bodied, carbonated and bitter with a honey flavour that combines with a malty flavour and ends in a minimally hoppy taste.
Overall: Refreshing, different and easy to drink. Was expecting more of a honey taste but the sweetness/bitterness combination is good. I could chug this all night...
