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

This beer is crystal clear, with a thick white head and a scent of fruit, and soft, floral hops. The scent has a very nice undertone of pale malt. It is a dry beer...drier than expected, but still nicely balanced with a malt and hop juxtaposition. The mouthfeel has a solid heft, with a bitter finish. Very nice beer.

Pours a hazy orangey-amber with a cap of off-white head. The head has good retention and leaves small soapy lacing. The smell is light but has some distinctive aspects of pine and floral hops and caramel malts. The taste is much the same but with a little more oomph to it. The body is thicker and slick, with just a hint of carbonation.
