Golden color with a thick head and apparent carbonation.
Light aroma of bread with honey.
Flavor with notes of true honey (mild though), apples, herbal and floral hops. It felt like using the same yeast as their Kolsch which is slightly fruity. Dry aftertaste with a perceived and elegant bitterness.
Light body with appropriate vivid carbonation.
Great beer for sessioning. Balanced and easy to drink. Honey is far from overpowering. I would love it to compare it face to face to the Fullers version.

Sampled in an Antares bar in Bariloche, Argentina

Pale straw colour with medium foamy head.

Thin body, honey taste pronounced but slightly fake. No real honey can have gone into this. For something at 7.5% this is suprisingly bland, slight hop bitterness on the aftertaste.

Quite hard drinking due to the unnerving honey taste.

A little odd, but actually pretty decent over all. Had a half pint poured with good head and lots of lace. Head slowly dissipated to a light covering. Color is a polished brass. The aroma is very distinct honey dominating beer. Flavor is beer with a very pronounced honey character, but enough dry bitterness to balance it with the beer overall. It's the best stronly honey flavored beer I've ever had. There was a strange flavor that reminded me of some chewing gum I'd once had. Body was good with fine carbonation. Could be a session beer.
