Tastes like the label implies. Honey taste is foremost. I'm not a big honey fan, so something I don't care for, but if you're looking for honey flavor, this is probably something you should check out.

Citrus sweet taste. Doesn't hit hard with hop flavor. hops give off citrus notes after. very drinkable. Great for warm weather
