Draught: This beer is a pale yellow color. I was expecting a large white fluffy head, but didn't get it. The aroma is somewhat non-descript. Some hints of sweetness, most likely from the honey. The taste is basically a little sweet, with a thinner body. Hops? I really didn't get any, but then again I've been drinking a lot of Imperial IPA's lately. Suprisingly, the beer was fairly satisfying: good for a hot day of drinking for no special reason.

Sparkley gold with a thin white head that fizzes out quick. I don't smell much of anything. I detect a kind of grainy earthy odor but that's it. No honey or anything special. It kind of just smells like a Miller High Life... Eh, a little better than that, maybe, but not much. I think I can pick up a subtle hint of honey in the taste, however. It has a grainy aftertaste. Anyway, it's light, a touch of sweet, and easy to drink. A gimmick beer I think. With Leinenkugel's beers I'll stick with the Sunset Wheat and Big Butt Dopplebock. Those are good. But I'll avoid the Red and the Honey Weiss. And those are the four that I've have had from this brewer so far. But at prices similar to Bud, Miller, etc. I'd take Leinenkugel's for sure.

Poured a macro-lager-looking yellow with little head that dissipated very quickly. Aroma was weak with a bit of skunk to it. This tastes nothing like a wheat ale to me. Slight hint of honey in the taste, but the flavor is weak. Not offensive by any means, just a little weak for my tastes. I would not seek this out.

They brought in a free keg of this at my cousin's wedding, so I took advantage..

Pale yellow color, thin white head that doesn't really leave much lacing. The smell is light pale malts and a hint of spiciness...couldn't pick up much honey, but there may be a bit lingering there. Flavor is weak malts and tastes quite cheap and macro-ish. No real hearty wheat character...if there was more honey flavor and more wheat to round this thing out, this might be a respectable brew. As it is, it was ok to have a few free glasses on the house, but it's not something I'd run out to buy.

Bottle poured to pint glass.

A: 1 finger fast thinning white head, beer is yellow clear color
S: No honey or wheat smell, smells pretty bad, skunked
T: Initail carbonated fizz, smooth aftertaste and finish. Slight old artificial bland honey hint.Barely any honey flavor at all.
M: Decent, smooth, no bite
D: So-so

Nothing special about this beer.
Buy Honey Brown.

Notes from Aug 08
Sort of a deep straw color,with a faint yeast aroma,maby straw. A light crisp flavor but lacking in any thing that really stands out,very little in the way of hops or malt in the aroma or flavor,and where is the Honey promised on the label,very average,drinkable but very average.
