Pours very light, pale yellow. Smells like a basic Pilsner. An obvious honey presence. Finishes with a lemon taste. Very light and crisp, but not much to it. Would be great on the lake on a hot day

This was one of 4 beers in a sampler pack of 12 bottles from the Wisconsin Dells Brewery. 12oz brown bottle with no freshmess date.

The beer poured a cloudy golden/yellow color with a 1½-finger white head that only lasted about 30 seconds. It left no lacing whatsoever.

When I first popped the cap the beer actually had a slight lager smell to it, but after that dissipated it was left with just a whiff of malt and some mild honey.

There's not much to this. A mild malt brew with a touch of sweet honey. Hop bitterness is barely noticeable,

Very light and refreshing with a good amount of carbonation.

Not a lot of flavor to this but nothing offensive either. Very easy to drink at just 4% abv but not really a beer that holds my interest.

Honey Ale pours a straw like color with no head. There is a mellow pale and stale like aroma, with hints of spice. The taste is very light, pale, with a mellow hint of honey. Weaker body, but still some flavors come though, a little flat too. Overall its a nice beer, nothing to great but still enjoyable.

Here is a pale yellow brew with no head or lacing. The smell is quite light, grainy with perhaps a shade of honey. Palate similarly is a very light beer with whisps of honey. It's mildly crisp and of a refreshing quality. Light body. If somebody handed me a glass it'd be sufficient to drink, but I'd not seek this one out.

I had this as a part of their 5oz sampler package in their bar which you get all 10 of their tap beers to try.

Pours a clear amber color with a moderate head and a slight honey scent. Has a smooth, mild honey taste to it that finishes rather smooth. Overall it was an ok beer.

Darker gold than I would expect from a honey ale. Perhaps they brewed with some wildflower or clover honey that was darker. There is a wispy head of light lacing. Sour nose, but not in an unpleasant way. Similar to melted snow both on the nose and in the flavor. Melted snow or the frost from inside the freezer. I have experienced this in many beers, and can't place what causes it as of yet.
