Pours a two finger white head that fades quickly to a ring leaving some lace. Nearly clear amber color. Light carbonation and light-medium bodied. Honey and citric nose, flavor is light honey and malt with light hops at finish. $2.39 for a 12oz bottle from Julio's Liquors Westborough, MA. Best by 6/1/2013.

Poured from a 12oz bottle into a duvel glass.

A: pours a slightly hazy coppery golden/orange with about of finger of white head that does down quick.... Some nice lacing.... Appearance kinda reminds me of honey.

S: I get a lot of dry, doughy bready yeastyness, Grains? And a hint of sweetness. A very mild nose overall.

T: grain, oats, breadiness, a touch of honey on the end, I get a bit of floralness in there too with the organic wild flower honey.

M: medium body with medium sharp carbonation, deffinatly leavs a dryness in the mouth, very light finish, almost pushing watery.

O: this isn't a bad beer, but it's not great either, I wish the honey was kicked up a few notches and that the bready Malts took more of a backseat.... The base beer here is a blonde, btw, like I said not a bad beer but overall I felt it could of been better.
Now that I look back I see this is a 4 percent session beer, I'm not a big session beer guy,
That's probably why I didn't like this so much.... But I suppose for a session beer it's not bad.

Appearance is good with a thick, off white, long lasting head, good lacing, and a clear amber color. Aroma is fresh beer, grain, malt, hops, and honey, all in mild amounts. Flavor's quite bland and similar to nose. Body is ok. Overall, a forgettable beer and not up to Uinta's usual standards.

got a six pack of bottles from a local liquor shop and pour one out into a pint glass

a nice lite slightly murky copper orange color with very little carbonation and a thin white foam head that leaves nice lace.

a rather mild aroma with a bit of grains some malt sweetness and honey .

the taste is creamy malt and honey with a touch of some matallic flavor .

medium body and creamy feel on the palette ,it coats your mouth with the mild sweet taste of ,of course honey.

an fairly easy to drink honey lager.honey lagers are a good style and this ones not a bad one to get if you can.cheers..

12oz bottle poured into a Bruery tulip.

A - Pours a thin and watery looking pale amber color. A thin cap of foam lingers briefly and drops to a soda-ish fizzy collar of bubbles.

S - A touch sweet, honey touches. Very grainy, yeasty bread dough like aromas. Hops are secondary here...no real presence in the aroma.

T - Soft, honey sweetness, grainy and bready as in the aroma...really gives me the impression of liquid bread. Hop flavor is barely there...what is there is a touch on the fruity side with a very mild bitterness.

M - Smooth but tingly all over the tongue with a light intensity carbonation in combination with the thinnish body. Very soft feeling.

D - Can't say that this one is anything special or worth writing home about, but it is infinitely drinkable. This goes down easier than water and could be had all day long. A summer lawn mower beer if there ever was one.

Bright golden body. Lace white head that fizzles out to a patchy covering with moderate lacing.

Vanilla, cream soda and honey aromas. Earthy and leafy hops on the nose.

Vanilla bean and honey, with some cream soda sweetness, much like the nose. Biscuity malt backbone. Earthy hops on the finish, giving a slight bitterness to the body.

Not much complexity, but very refreshing, especially on a hot day like today. The low ABV makes this a perfect choice to bring to the beach or a BBQ.

A very enticing aroma invites you into this honig ale. Unfortunately -aside from the initial honey and malt flavors- it ends there. Hints of mint, light citrus, and obviously honey are predominant in the nose. In the palate, honey is again revisited, followed with a quick, light finish, with subtle hints of toast lingering in the after palate.
