look: 3.5 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 4 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4

Appearance: Bright yellow, almost orange. Ok head rentention that dissipates quickly. A bit flat-looking, but by no means a bad beer.

Smell: Very faint hints of honey. Honestly, for an adjunct, Honey Weiss smells extremely pleasant. Very summery and refreshing. The honey almost transforms into a malt that evades throughout.

Taste/Mouthfeel: Honey with a creamy maltiness. Almost no hops, but some lemon bitterness maybe. Despite the appearance, Honey Weiss is quite thick in a good way. Creamy, honey, good.

Drinkability: Probably the best American Adjunct Lager. Easy to drink with no nasty taste.

Overall: Underutilized and underappreciated.
