Sampled this one on tap at the Farmers Market. A ruddy golden in color, with some airy white head, smelling of floral honey notes.

This beer tastes like a delicate pale ale thoroughly infused with the floral sweetness of honey. I have never had such a fresh tasting and honey-forward beer combined! Sweeter than expected, but in an appealing way and no overwhelming alcohol presence like in a mead. Smooth, light mouthfeel. Extremely drinkable.

This was my first Lawson's purchase and I will be going back for more!

Picked this up at the Montpelier Farmer's Market.
Batch #104, bottle # 62.

Poured into small tasting glass, this ale has a clear, golden-honey color with about a finger of white head. Light lacing.

Lots of floral honey notes on the nose. Flowery with lightly toasted malts and just a touch of leafy hops. Smells like raw honey was poured into the beer. Bits of fruit and berries mixed with honey tea. Great aroma for a pale ale.

The taste is raw, lushes honey. Balanced with a touch of crisp bittering hops. The 15 pounds of pure, local Vermont honey per barrel really comes through in this ale, almost like liquid nectar. Golden, toasted malts make up the backbone and the hops keep this from getting too ridiculously sweet.

Mouthfeel is smooth, lightly carbonated. A good, robust body for an ale. Almost creamy.

Drinkability is very high. Delicious honey, ABV is unnoticeable. Sweet, but not cloying. Just extremely easy to drink.

This is my second Lawson's and I'm really impressed. This guy is making awesome beers at a production size that is not much bigger than the avid homebrewer. Really glad I picked up two more of these at the market, since I think this is the only batch. If you can find this brew I highly recommend picking it up.

22oz foil topped bomber poured into an 8oz imperial style glass.

Pours a very clear deep and bubbly amber/honey gold with a nice thick and creamy slightly yellow head. Nose lightly hoppy and it's got a tiny bit of sweet malt as well.

Taste is really cool - you can taste the honey! It's not over the top like a mead, but it's not so subtle that you can't taste it either. Very light sweetness that's mellowed by the smooth maltiness. Mouthfeel is very nice and crisp, real easy drinker on a hot day like this!

Picked up a bomber at the Warren Store on a recent trip to the Mad River Valley. I had tried a few of their beers on draft at Mad River Glen so I was psyched to have some to bring home.

Poured into a chalice glass. Pours a nice orange amber. Has a really sweet smell, you can really smell the honey in this one. The hops are not as noticeable, because of the honey. I am thinking it tastes like a mead, but I have never tried one.

Very smooth and drinkable. The sweetness was a bit over-powering for my tastes, but you can tell a lot went into this brew. I definitely hope to see these guys expand as it is tough to get up to the Warren Store on a regular basis.

Rare Batch #104 Bottle #57 22 oz Bomber
poured into my Lawson's Finest Liquids pint glass on 4/29/10.

A: Golden in color w/ moderate carbonation. Very clear even though the label says it is unfiltered. 1/2 finger head fades quickly.

S: Typical blonde ale smell, malt forward, almost grape-like aroma.

T: Sweet taste, the grape-like aroma transforms into a flavor. Honey sweet/ light grape finish in taste. A bit sweeter than a malty red ale, but not at all nutty or as complex.

M: Tingly carbonation & clean on the palate.

D: is quite smooth, but too sweet for anything more than 2 glasses.
