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...

Pours gold with a very small head.
Nose shows straw, faint honey, earthy and herbal hops. Some cereal grain characters too.
Flavours include a little more honey with some bready malt and earthy hops. Quite sweet. Faint cardboard.
Nice moderate carbonation.

Look- Clear yellow with a medium white head

Smell-Malts and slight caramel/honey sweetness

Taste-Sweet malts and grain with a fairly strong honey flavor.

Mouthfeel- Medium body with medium carbonation. It might have been in my head but I think the honey affects the mouthfeel too. I feel like it coated my tongue a bit.

Overall-I like sweet beer so I was a fan. The honey flavor was stronger than other beers with honey I have had.

500 ml bottle poured into an English pub glass. A dark lemon drop yellow with quick-breaking white head and a rather sweet buttered biscuit, orchard fruit spread, and floral hop aroma. More of the same on the palate, buttered biscuit and lightly honeyed breakfast cereal, subtle citrus (lemon and orange) and gooseberry/vinous fruit notes, nothing overly bold or assertive yet not bland either. Carbonation is low-key although the beer is not flat, with more mouthfeel than expected and a lingering doughy sweetness that carries through into the slightly chalky finish, where some lightly floral hops again make their presence known. Although there are no obvious flaws and the expected taste elements are there, I am struggling a little with the pedestrian and unassuming demeanor of this brew. What's there holds promise but one is left wanting more.
