3.6/5  rDev +5%
look: 3.5 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 4

Appearance: Scantly hazed, very light pale yellow-hued body capped by a thin, whitish head.

Smell: Faint, slim, tenuous malts supported by lightly floral, honey notes.

Taste: Mildly bready malts, mild rye, too. Fairly sweet with a pleasant honey flavor. Sweetness is bucked, albeit gently, but the rye and even less so by the hops and bitterness. Sweetish, semi-dry finish.

Mouthfeel: Medium-light body. Medium carbonation.

Overall: Easy, light, simple, but a fairly pleasing taste.

Perhaps I expected too much distinction, but I did not perceive either honey sweetness or rye spicyness to much extent with this beer. Pour was a slightly hazy gold with nominal head. Up front some malty sweetness with moderate hops bittering following. Finish was smooth but went a little watery at the very end.

A - Dark, golden yellow in color. Very thin white head quickly fades to almost nothing. Light, wispy lacing.

S - Clean, sweet nose. Very weak aromas, but still bery inviting. A light spiciness lingers underneath, floral notes.

T - Clean sweetness initially. A rye spiciness comes through mid drink but is not overpowering at all. Finishes with a floral hoppiness.

M/D - A little light and thin on the mouthfeel. Decent carbonation makes it very crisp in the mouth. A drinkable beer for sure, but the rye nor the honey really shine.

A little dissappointing. Still a slightly above average beer, but nothing to get excited about.
