3.53/5  rDev +18.5%
look: 3 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3 | overall: 4

Appearance: Pale golden color without too much head. Kind of blase looking.

Smell: Lemony and slighty wheaty.

Taste: I'm getting a lot of lemon. Honey is not really detectable, despite the beer's name. Light wheat malt.

Mouthfeel: Light-bodied and quite a bit of carbonation.

Drinkability: Goes easily and could be consumed in large doses without becoming tedious.

Notes: They should call this beer Lemon Weiss instead of Honey Weiss, because that is the dominant characteristic I taste in this beer. In fact, this beer is so lemony, that it encroaches on Leinenkugel's Summer Shandy territory. If this WAS the Summer Shandy, I'd be understanding of the lemon taste, but since it's not, it comes off as a rather generic pale wheat beer with too much lemon.

Serving type: on-tap
