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.

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.
