3.45/5 rDev -1.7%
look: 2.5 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.5
A - An amber color pour into my Sam Adams perfect pint glass yielding just some bubbly foam which settles to a thin white layer followed by a ring around the glass; it's past the best by date, so that may have had some effects on it (2.5)
S - Nose is slightly sweet with notes of honey and some oakiness and yeast; light aromas of plums are also detected (3.5)
T - Malts with some woodiness upfront breaking into a fair amount of plums; light notes of honey in the slightly tart middle. The finish is slightly sour with some flavors of plums (3.5)
F - Thin on the body with a watery texture spotting a slight foaminess to lend it a bit of smoothness as it goes down; carbonation was moderate (3.5)
D - Slightly above average in most aspects and is light and pretty easy drinking; I admittedly had higher expectations though I have to emphasize that this is a year past its "best by" date so it's likely not at its best. Will probably pick up another bottle some time and revisit this review (3.5)
This bottle's best by date is November 26, 2009; it's about a year and 2 months off to be precise. Storage conditions were not fantastic also, admittedly so I will have to cut this one some slack here.

3.49/5 rDev -0.6%
look: 3.25 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.5
A: The beer is clear yellow in color and has a slight amount of visible carbonation. It poured with a half finger high bright white head that died down, leaving lacing on the surface and a collar around the edge of the glass.
S: Light aromas of honey and floral hops are present in the nose.
T: The taste is similar to the smell and has additional notes of pale malts. The honey adds slight bits of sweetness and the hops contribute a light amount of bitterness.
M: It feels light- to medium-bodied on the palate and has a moderate amount of carbonation.
O: This beer is very easy to drink and the honey makes things a bit more interesting and prevents this from being a band pale ale.
